The Inebriation of Mimi

Mariah's Sloshy Speech

1/6/2010 11:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Mariah Carey was busted for BUI in Palm Springs last night -- babbling under the influence -- as she made a drunken mess out of herself while trying to give an acceptance speech at an awards show.

At last night's Palm Springs Film Festival, Mimi took home the prize for Breakthrough Actress for her role in "Precious" -- but when she attempted to talk, she was anything but.

People that are in the public eye should be more careful and aware of how much they drink especially if there is a chance that they will be receiving an award and will have to get up in front of everyone and speak. She is only human but she had to have known that she might be receiving the award. I'm sure she's totally embarassed today especially if she has seen this. I would feel totally humiliated!!

Here is one of the few truly beautiful...truly TALENTED singers...in the pop world, today...behaving as the rest of so-called "celebrities" do...shamefully...embarrassingly...BORINGLY...and, for the world to see! Her behavior is as much a "fashion statement", as is her hair, or her gown! I am sorry for her...and, am sorry, as well, that "stars" are so bereft of self-respect and personal pride, that they are not ashamed to show their adoring public nothing but their "backsides", and expect them to respect it...

oh good grief. she was drunk. big freaking deal she's not ALWAYS drunk. she couldn't have been THAT drunk. she walks in the world's tallest heels. i couldn't do that sober. she wasn't flashing her who-ha. she wasn't talking dirty. she wasn't being vulgar. she was being gracious and sweet. it just took her a bit longer to spit it out. i like her all the more after seeing that clip.

Hey, getting drunk is one thing, but she made a total ass out of herself. Very unprofessional, very stupid, yet so sad, and comical...

I've noticed that on many recent occasions, it appears that Mariah has seemed under the influence of something that made it almost impossible for her to speak. It's really quite sad actually.

I hate seeing or hearing anyone in this condition. It is not attractive...but on the other hand she was celebrating and she doesn't have any children to see her like that. Keep it together.
