Time Capsule: That High Heel Fall

For those who remember the early days of Mariah Carey (back when we didn’t think it was possible for anyone other than Whitney Houston to reach those notes), her eventual fade from sight, and her recent resurgence into the pop music industry, it’s hard not to give her some credit for staying somewhat above the fray. She’s a talented musician, a consistently beautiful woman, and now a beloved mother to her twins, Monroe and Moroccan (born earlier this year). So why are we bringing her up? Because one year ago today, the singing sensation proved herself just as human as the rest of us.

On September 29, 2010, Carey was performing at an event in Singapore, tripped over in those statement high heels, and landed square on her toosh. The onstage incident was moderately ignored as though it were nothing, with Carey kicking off her heels and continuing on with the show in bare feet. But it wasn’t long before her assistants could tell this was far more serious than a simple slip. She had officially twisted her ankle and, for several days, was carted around in a wheelchair. The humor of her representative was hard to miss: “Mariah twisted her ankle in Singapore and should have packed more sensible shoes, but she doesn’t have any.” Really.
