Mariah Carey Hospitalized After Suffering Injury On '#Beautiful' Video Shoot
Mariah Carey will still perform in Central Park on Saturday, despite her hospitalization.
Mariah Carey was hospitalized in New York on Sunday (July 7, 2013) after suffering an injury on the set of a video shoot for a remix version of her song '#Beautiful' with rapper Young Jeezy. The song features Grammy winner and amateur crowd-surfer Miguel and peaked at No.15 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart.
Her representative told CBS News that Mariah went to hospital in New York after suffering a shoulder injury while shooting the video. It is not clear whether she fell, or was struck, though the singer's rep added that "doctors reset her shoulder" and that "she is fine". Some reports have suggested she may have tripped over while dancing in towering feels for the video - which is directed by Mariah's husband Nick Cannon - however this remains pure speculation.
The singer will still perform with the New York Philharmonic on Central Park's Great Lawn this Saturday. This show, for the 2013 MLB All-Star Charity Concert, will benefit victims of Superstorm Sandy.
Carey - still one of the biggest selling acts on the planet - recently pushed back the release date of her new album The Art of Letting Go. Originally scheduled for a July 24, 2013 release, the album is expected out later this year.
