Who knew that shooting a music video could be so dangerous? It certainly was for Mariah Carey, who was recently hospitalized for a nasty shoulder injury. No worries though, the American Idol judge is going to be just fine.
Mariah Carey has been a busy gal as of late, what with her work on American Idol and the shooting of a new music video. But she was forced to take a little time out for healing when she injured a shoulder on the set of that very music video. The intended video was to be for a remix of the classic Mariah Carey song Beautiful with the help of Young Jeezy. Instead, Mariah found herself being carted to a New York hospital late on Sunday evening.
According to Mariah’s rep, the injury wasn’t too severe and the singer is in full-on recovery mode. But hubby Nick Cannon had a different take on the incident, explaining on the Today show that his wife was the ultimate “trooper” — to the point that she insisted on the continuation of filming for the music video. Nick explained, “I was going to rush to the hospital with [Mariah]” but she said, “You get back in there and finish that video!’ Then, after they put [her] shoulder back in place, bandaged her all up, she came back to the video early in the morning and finished out everything.”
Now that’s what we call dedication! We hope Mariah Carey is able to heal up quickly and get back to her usual (and busy) routine!
