Mariah Carey kicked off her new tour The Elusive Chanteuse Show in Japan yesterday. Apart from performing her greatest hits such as “My All”, “Fantasy” etc., and songs off her current album that gave the show its title, she also covered Billie Holiday’s “Don’t Explain”.
This is usually nothing that exciting as Mariah loves to cover her favorite songs and does it always very well, but this time it’s a little different.
After singing the original lyrics Cry to hear folks chatter/And I know you cheat/Right or wrong, don’t matter/When you’re with me, sweet she adds “I know you cheated motherfucker”. Since we all know the Carey-Cannon marriage is facing their hardest time right now, it leads one to believe this was a message directed towards Nick.
