People Are Outraged By Piers Morgan’s Bizarre Mariah Carey Interview About The Las Vegas Shooting

America is becoming all too familiar with mass shootings. The wide availability of guns has caused many to question the legality of their existence in light of such tragedies, especially outside of the US, but President Trump is entirely in favor of their existence.

In April of this year, the president even signed a bill revoking a law Obama had introduced about making it harder for those with mental illnesses to purchase firearms. However, this is a decision which is more than likely to get questioned in the coming days. Last night, a devastating mass shooting took place on the Las Vegas strip at a music festival. A gunman opened fire on the crowd of revellers from the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay hotel, killing over 50 people and injuring more than 100. The suspect was shot dead by a SWAT team who infiltrated his hotel room. The Las Vegas resident who caused the devastation is believed to have been a lone attacker, however, reports are now emerging that he had a female accomplice named Marilou Danley. The gunman was recently named as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock from Mesquite, Nevada. He was known to law enforcement. Paddock’s female accomplice is believed to have been his roommate. As the shock news of the mass shooting broke around the world, people were quick to express their condolences for all involved. However, it led to extremely bizarre scenes on the British talkshow Good Morning Britain where Mariah Carey had been scheduled to be interviewed. Instead of talking about Mariah’s upcoming shows in Europe as planned, the show’s controversial host Piers Morgan asked the star about her opinion on the breaking news, which resulted in a strange interview that had Twitter furious…
Mariah Carey, a celebrated diva, appeared on the TV show via a live feed from her Beverly Hills home. She was stretched across a lounge chair wearing a red dress as Piers Morgan asked her what she thought about the attack, despite her knowing very little about what had happened. “You’ve played in Vegas many times,” Morgan said, “You know that at this time of night that it would be a massively busy. What is your reaction just on a human level to concert goers being targeted in this way?” Mariah looked shellshocked at what she was being asked, but answered Morgan’s question regardless:

“I mean it is what everyone’s gut reaction is… I pray for the victims, have they caught the shooter?

“Wow, that’s awful. Again I pray for the victims and hope all these can stop as soon as possible. You know I have spent a lot of time in Vegas and this type of thing anywhere happening anywhere is a huge tragedy.

“I continue to pray for the victims. I hope we have an end to this as soon as possible.”

Whilst there’s no denying that Mariah’s reaction to the tragedy was sincere, viewers of Good Morning Britain took to Twitter to express their outrage that she had even been asked about the incident. It appeared that she was hearing about the shooting for the first time from Piers Morgan. Mariah’s appearance in such a relaxed position with a Christmas tree in the background was deemed wildly inappropriate. Whilst police have confirmed that only one gunman was involved in the incident, witnesses are convinced that the volume of bullets being fired upon the crowd was too great for it to have only been one shooter. One witness explained: “We were at the furthest stages away from Mandalay Bay, and they [the bullets] were ricocheting everywhere where we were so … they were firing from somewhere high, and they were unloading clip after clip after clip after clip.” “Multiple shooters,” he said, “It has to be. There were obviously people hit.” As details of this shocking incident continue to emerge, we wish all the best to those affected.

Published

While they were filming Community together, Alison Brie used to hang out with co-star Donald Glover, despite the fact that he was – in her own words – “much cooler” than her.

Brie was a guest on The Late Late Show, where she told a story about a time she was at a party at Glover’s apartment and attempted to do a backflip and ended up breaking a lamp. Oops.

“I decided to just yell out, ‘hey everyone, watch this!'” Brie said. “I might have been a little drunk.”

We’ve all been there, Alison.

“John Legend has made history as the youngest person ever to achieve that sweet, sweet coveted EGOT status.

That’s someone who has received the big four, the holy grail of performance accolades: Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony Awards.

Legend, 39, completed the acronym at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday, as did Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, all for producing best variety special winner Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert.

He’s also the first black man to land EGOT status, making history in more ways than one.

Legend also played the role of Jesus in NBC’s production of the 1970 concept album-turned-Broadway musical, so he’s also up for the Emmy for outstanding actor in a limited series or movie, which will be revealed at the big primetime Emmy Awards on Monday.

“Before tonight, only 12 people had won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony in competitive categories,” wrote Legend on Instagram……………………..”

“I was jogging at the San Francisco Marina back in 1988 I think it was and I saw Robin Williams sitting in the side of his van just chillin’. I said, “How you doin’ Mr. Williams?” He said, “I’m doing great, you running from the cops?” I laughed and stopped to chat with him for about 5 minutes. He was absolutely delightful. Such a fond memory. I wept when I…

“Jim Carrey gave me a ride to the gas station after my car ran out of gas in Bel Aire. I told him I was a huge fan of Ace Ventura and I could mimic his laugh from the movie. Then we both had our heads out the window cackling away. He bought my gas and drove me back to my car. One of the greatest moments in my life.”

“Keanu Reeves. I remember seeing him while walking through New York a long time ago when I was a young, probably very annoying pre-teen. I yelled out, “Yo, Neo!” And then I obnoxiously mimicked the bullet dodge motion from The Matrix. He looked back at me, laughed, and mirrored the same move in acknowledgement. It’s such a great memory because I feel like anyone would have been justified in getting annoyed…

I’ll never forget it.”

Tom Hanks at Best Buy. He was in line in front of me with a cart full, all by himself. I was only buying a bottle of water because they didn’t have what I was looking for. I just blurted out” Forest Gump is my favorite movie” like a creep, and he turned around, and said “that was my favorite movie to make! I’m glad you love it.” He then…

I just blurted out” Forest Gump is my favorite movie” like a creep, and he turned around, and said “that was my favorite movie to make! I’m glad you love it.” He then chatted with me while about movies as we stood in line. When it was his turn to check out while they were ringing up his stuff he said “oh let me get that water for you” and paid for my water. He kept talking to me and then we walked out and he said “nice talking to you! You’re a very nice young lady and always remember… life is like a box of chocolates.. you never know what your gonna get” in his Forest Gump voice. IT WAS THE BEST THING EVER.

 “My sister was waiting tables in NYC, and ended up serving Patrick Stewart. She didn’t want to bother him, so she just did her job, but at the end of the night she told him how much she had enjoyed seeing him in a production of Hamlet that year (2008), and that she hoped he was planning to do more theater in the US. My sister was prepared to leave it…………..”
