Mariah Carey has explained her impromptu strip-tease on MTV’s Total Request Live on the network’s ‘Mariah Carey: Shining Through the Rain’ special, which airs at 9 p.m. ET Tuesday on MTV. “The drama, the saga of the TRL,” Carey recalls. “Like we were doing Dateline and suddenly I went into like a striptease burlesque show. I’m like, it’s TRL, I thought you were supposed to feel at home and do stupid stuff.” She adds, “I’m not going to stop being me because people don’t get me. The only thing I wish I had done is had a better camera angle.”
