Mariah Carey Rings In 2017 With Painful Lip Sync Fail On Live TV

Ed Mazza | January 1, 2017 | Entertainment
Mariah Carey’s 2016 ended on a low note as the singer was the victim of a series of technical malfunctions during her performance on ABC’s “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve 2017.” Carey appears to have been prepared to lip sync, but many of her vocals didn’t play at all ― and when they did, she was often far out of sync with them: Mariah Carey's Times Square meltdown was an appropriate finale to 2016 https://t.co/rjiKuQVmF9 pic.twitter.com/BiB83fEzhr— Deadspin (@Deadspin) January 1, 2017 ”We didn’t have a soundcheck but it’s New Year’s, baby,” she said as her music played without her vocals. “It’s OK you guys.” Carey gamely strutted across the stage and encouraged fans to sing as her dancers did their routine around her. “I’m trying to be a good sport here,” she said. But viewers weren’t buying it. Here’s some of the reaction on Twitter: Any time one of the greatest voices of my generation lip syncs an angel loses its wings— josh groban (@joshgroban) January 1, 2017 this Mariah Carey performance is 100% my 2016 experience summed up— Ben J.

Retired Politician Accused Of Fondling 103-Year-Old Former In-Law

David Moye | December 31, 2016 | Crime
A retired politician in Pennsylvania has been accused of indecently assaulting a 103-year-old woman. Police in Radnor Township have charged William Spingler, 75, with three counts of indecent assault on a person with a mental disability. Employees at the Wayne Center nursing home told police they saw Spingler, of Paoli, touching the woman inappropriately on three occasions this month, according to WPVI-TV.  The woman is Spingler’s mother-in-law from a previous marriage. She suffers from dementia and needs 24-hour care, according to a criminal complaint obtained by The Smoking Gun. A nursing home employee told police she saw Spingler on Dec. 15 touching the woman’s right breast and moving his hand “around her chest area in a manner that could not be misconstrued with anything else but inappropriate touching.” Spingler reportedly returned to the nursing home two days later and groped the woman again, according to a nursing home worker. When Spingler realized he was being watched, “his face turned red and he immediately left the facility,” the criminal complaint says, according to The Smoking Gun. He returned Dec. 23, and allegedly touched his victim once again, according to police.  An employee who observed the visit claimed that the woman looked uncomfortable and tried to pull away, according to WTXF-TV. That employee reported that he told Spingler to stop and said he replied, “What?” before leaving. Spingler was arraigned on the indecent assault counts Friday evening and was released after posting $10,000 in bail. His next court date is scheduled for Jan. 5, and the judge ordered him not to have any contact with the 103-year-old woman, according to Main Line Surburban Life. Spingler had no comment when Philly.com contacted him about the charges. Spingler, a real estate agent, has been involved in politics since 1968, when he was elected to the Radnor Township Board of Commissioners in 1968 as a Democrat, according to the Delco Times. He also served as a county commissioner from 1972 to 1980 before an unsuccessful run for Congress in 1986. He then served as a Radnor commissioner from 1991 until 2015 and was board president when he...
