Mariah Carey was performing her 1992 hit “Make It Happen” on Sunday for the Singapore Grand Prix when she took a sudden fall. Landing on her bottom, Carey was helped up by back-up (no pun intended) dancers and joked “I did that on purpose!”
Just moments after falling, Carey signaled her assistant to come onto stage. The assistant hurried over to Carey with a bottle of water in tow; however, the singer rejected that.

Instead, Carey pointed to her sky-high stilettos and had her assistant remove the shoes. She completed the concert in bare feet, and like a consummate professional continued singing despite the fall.
With rumors that she may be pregnant, the fall was indeed scary to watch. However, Carey nor husband Nick Cannon will confirm whether or not the 40-year-old singer is indeed with child.
Speculation that the singer/songwriter was expecting became rampant when Carey decided not to be in Tyler Perry’s movie “For Colored Girls” and pulled out of it. Her PR rep said that her doctor advised her to do so and would not comment any further.
In August Carey finally addressed the rumors via her Rep and said, “I appreciate everyone’s well wishes but I am very superstitious. When the time is right, everyone will know.”
Carey has sold over 200 million albums, singles and videos worldwide according to Island Def Jam, and won the honor of best-selling female pop artist of the millennium in 2000 at the World Music Awards.
