"It's not practical for a singer to sing live and to be able to hear themselves properly in the middle of Times Square with all the noise, the freezing cold, the smoke from the smoke machines, thousands of people celebrating, especially when their ear monitors weren't working at all," the 46-year-old said during her rant.

"They foiled me. Thus it turned into an opportunity to humiliate me," she added. The singer even admitted that she "cannot deny that my feelings are hurt."
