Mariah Carey - who came under fire for a recent tipsy awards show speech - made sure she didn't go overboard with the bubbly at Sunday's Golden Globe Awards.

"I had like two sips!" she told UsMagazine.com at the show.

She told Us her sloshy acceptance speech at the Palm Springs International Film Festival earlier this month was blown out of proportion.

"Whatever, that was so not a big deal," said the singer, 40, who recently announced plans to release her own line of bubbly. "Everyone needs to remember the last time they had champagne!"

Carey - who was spotted giving actress Helen Mirren a double kiss on the cheek at the Globes - said the highlight of her night was seeing Precious costar Mo'Nique win for best supporting actress in a drama.

"She is real, and so am I!" Carey told Us.

She said she also liked her low-cut Herve Leger by Max Azria gown.

"I just like the way it fit and the beading," Carey said when asked how she settled on the frock. "I thought it was pretty cool. Now I'm like stepping on it!"

She said the dress was better than one she recently wore.

"I couldn't walk up the stairs because it was too tight on my knees," she told Us. "You've got to have stretchy fabric!"
