Mariah Carey’s former choreographer Anthony Burrell has nothing good to say about the singer’s most recent performances. “It's just typical Mariah," Burrell tells Complex. "Mariah is clear: when she doesn’t wanna do something, she doesn’t do it. She’s performing with lackluster and no f**ks given, and it’s taking away her star."​ Burrell goes on to explain why working with someone like Carey can be difficult. "You always have to keep in mind that they’re a singer first," he notes. "The priority is not teaching them 100 counts of eight, or endless routines." As Us Weekly notes, Burrell was fired by Carey shortly after her disastrous 2016 performance on Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve With Ryan Seacrest.
