Leave it to Mariah Carey to turn lemons into lemonade. Or, in this case, champagne! The singer has announced that, after her tipsy acceptance speech at the Palm Springs International Film Festival, she's creating her own line of bubbly.
On Friday the pop star wrote on Twitter: "Didn't realize they put the champagne on the tables so we WOULDN'T drink it! LoL. No, seriously ANGEL CHAMPAGNE (ROSE) by MC coming soon!"
Carey became the butt of jokes after a video of her spacey speech in Palm Springs (thanking those honoring her for her breakout performance in Precious) quickly went viral last week.At the People's Choice Awards the next day, the singer explained to reporters, "There's a time for celebration and a time for not -- but really technically, it's a party atmosphere. We had splashes of champagne."
