NEW YORK: Mariah Carey spent New Year’s Eve singing at a party hosted by the Sultan of Brunei. The singer apparently seemed clueless as to her host Hassanal Bolkiah’s background as she happily pranced across the stage in a low-cut, sparkly gown, while the likes of Jerry Hall, Emmy Rossum, and John Travolta watched. Carey’s host at London’s Dorchester Hotel has been “absolute ruler” of the nation of Brunei since 1967 and amended the country’s constitution to make himself ‘infallible’ in 2006.–SY
