Mariah Carey Reminds Us of Nicki Minaj as Her Dress Pops on GMA

Mariah Carey suffered a wardrobe malfunction during her appearance on “Good Morning America,” but it seems like once the dress popped she couldn’t help but impersonate her “American Idol” rival Nicki Minaj.

When Mariah took to the stage in Central Park to perform for “Good Morning America” one thing was quite obvious – the dress was ready to let go at any given moment.

While M.C certainly has slimmed down quite a bit since becoming the face of Jenny Craig she may have miscalculated what her new dress size really is.

The dazzling pink Donatella Versace dress seemed to barely squeeze its way around Mariah’s curves and it was only a matter of time before the zipper finally popped.

The sudden wardrobe malfunction caused the powerhouse songstress to drop an expletive during the live broadcast as she exclaimed, “Oh sh**.”

Other than the fact that she may or may not have had a bit to drink before making her way unto the stage – which she has been known for by the way – things got a little strange when it came time for her to joke her way through the wardrobe blunder.

If you replay the clip and close your eyes for a moment you would swear that it was hip hop Barbie Nicki Minaj on stage and not the R&B butterfly.

“I love you Donatella, but it popped darling,” she said as she attempted to take on the same quirky accent that Nicki often uses in her music and during her time on “American Idol.”

Not to mention the way she dragged out the “a” the same way Mrs. Minaj often does.

Don’t get us wrong we certainly aren’t suggesting that anyone who says “darling” that way is impersonating Nicki but we can’t help but notice that ever since Carey joined Minaj on the “American Idol” judge’s panel she has been slowly but surely picking up some of her mannerisms.

The same accent that she ridiculed the rapper for using during the “American Idol” auditions now seems to be her new favorite thing to pull out during interviews and on air appearances.

Hey… don’t knock it until you try it right?

Anyway, the seemingly less than sober “Beautiful” crooner then hit a slow twirl to show the audience her popped dress while making the comment, “I just wanted to change the ensem.”

Of course, shortening the world ensemble to “ensem” was another Nicki-ish thing for her to do considering the fact that these are all things the R&B star never used to do before.

But hey, we’re not knocking her for it. If you’ve ever tried impersonating Nicki in the privacy of your own home you would understand why M.C couldn’t help but give it a go.

The real irony of the situation is that Nicki Minaj suffered her very own wardrobe malfunction during her live “GMA” performance as well. Perhaps if the two divas weren’t so busy arguing they would realize they actually have quite a few things in common.

Anyway, staff members quickly rushed on stage to try to fix the broken zipper while anchor Lara Spencer took the show into a break.

“What we’ll do is go to break, adjust, and when we come back we’ll talk to Mariah Carey about how gorgeous she looks,” Spencer said as she proved she was one anchor who knew how to roll with the punches of live TV.

As it turned out the zipper issue couldn’t be fixed and Nick Cannon’s wife had to simply change gowns.

Luckily she slipped into a more loosely fitting dress that would be free of any zipper-popping problems.

With the dress secure and the “girls” safely tucked away the mother of two went on to belt out her latest hit “#Beautiful” featuring Miguel.

Don’t ask us why the hashtag is in the title and no they don’t actually mention the hashtag in the song.
