Mariah Carey’s wardrobe malfunction at the So So Def 20th anniversary concert has caused the American Idol judge a spot of embarrassment last Saturday (February 23, 2013). You’d think that an entertainer with as many years in the industry under her belt as Mariah has would be far too savvy to fall foul of the ‘nip-slip’ but it would appear that that is not the case at all.

The unfortunate incident took place at Atlanta’s Fox Theatre, when Mariah was onstage wearing a strapless, curvy cream dress with metallic embellishments. As she wheeled out a cake to celebrate the anniversary of of her long-term collaborator Jermaine Dupri’s record label, the singer’s breast made a brief attempt at freedom and unbeknownst to Carey, her nipple popped out to say hello as she waved to fans, according to Us magazine. It wasn’t exactly the worst wardrobe malfunction in the world but these pop stars must rue the day the strapless dress was ever invented, when these things happen.

Mariah Carey: no stranger to a revealing outfit

Mariah is currently starring as a judge on the panel of American Idol. Cash Money CEO Birdman recently dismissed the apparent ‘beef’ between Mariah and her fellow judge Nicki Minaj, saying that both women were simply doing the job that they are paid to do. So So Def is an Atlanta Georgia based record company, owned by the Grammy award-winning producer Jermaine Dupri.
