Mariah Carey Explains Bizarre Acceptance Speech

She may have been visibly sloshed onstage at the Palm Springs International Film Festival awards Tuesday, but that didn't keep Mariah Carey from showing up at the People's Choice Awards Wednesday.

Asked on the red carpet about her bizarre acceptance speech Tuesday night, Carey came clean about her tipsiness.

"We were celebrating and having little splashes, and I hadn't eaten, and that's what it was," she said. "We had splashes of champagne."

She jokingly blamed Precious director Lee Daniels for being a "bad influence."
