After singing her first song on Friday morning, Mimi’s Versace dress flew open, baring her back to the crowd watching her in Central Park and the audience at home.
“Oh shoot, the back of my dress just popped!” she said while talking to GMA anchor Lara Spencer .
Cool as a cucumber, the American Idol judge described what happened, saying: “It popped, darling,” and asked Lara “What should we call this? The Central Park saga?”
Lara clearly recognized that the wardrobe malfunction was going to become big news and said: “I dare say this is a TV moment.”
Mariah held the broken dress up over her breasts to avoid a nip slip and Lara held her notes in front of her chest just in case, but she stayed covered up.
After a commercial break Mariah was back in a pink Monique Lhuillier dress and chatted and chatted with Josh Elliott as she made her way back up on stage, saying: “I’ve been working out. I’ve been trying to do the best I can to stay in shape. And these stress-fests, they help. But I need to catch my breath! Please talk.”
That’s when Mimi dropped the profanity, running up the stairs she was caught swearing.
“Oh, sh*t,” Mariah blurted out.
“You didn’t hear that.”
