Mariah Carey debuted a new collection of fashion, jewelry, shoes and fragrances in a two-hour spot on HSN last night, during which her antics made it hard to focus on the products she was supposed to be selling. Even the host seemed confused. Highlights included:

Tips on how to mix and match to avoid "Hi, we're twins" moments when wearing jewelry similar to friends'.

"I need a fragrant moment."

Lots of commentary about the "20 zillion cameras," including, "Take the camera off me, please! I know it's on me! Last time we had an issue. I won't get into it."

Her insistence that a necklace can double as a tiara.

"There's always drama … it follows me … sometimes it's good, sometimes it's bleak."
