Mariah Carey takes the first step, admits she was drunk at Palm Springs Awards

lee-daniels-mariah-carey.jpg Mariah Carey blames her loopy acceptance speech at the Palm Springs International Film Festival awards on her "Precious" director Lee Daniels, not eating enough that day and champagne. 

"The thing is me and Lee hadn't see each other in a long time, and then he was presenting my award, so he starts off immediately with inside jokes," Carey said at the People's Choice Awards Wednesday, Jan. 6. "We had splashes of champagne, and I love Lee but he's a bad influence."
