Mariah Carey dishes diva demands

Mariah Carey's capacity for ultra-demanding behaviour appears to know no bounds, if reports detailing her ridiculous tour demands are to be believed. Carey, who has just passed Elvis Presley as the record holder for the most No.1 US singles, visited the UK to promote her new album E=MC2 last week.
The Daily Mail reported that Carey flew in a $108,000 antique table from New York to sign autographs on. She also requested her hotel install a $21,000 gym next to her penthouse suite, even though she was staying for just a few days.
According to the report, Carey's Jack Russell terrier travelled to the UK by private jet and was chaperoned around town in a chauffeur-driven Mercedes. Carey's prima donna behaviour continued when she arrived two hours late to an appearance at fashion store Selfridges, leaving police struggling to contain legions of fans spilling on to the street outside.
But stopping London's notoriously congested traffic for two hours wasn't enough. The 38-year-old cancelled an interview on a London radio station because she was "not a morning person". She rescheduled another because of problems transporting her entourage of 15 bodyguards, stylists, hairdressers, publicists and managers to the interview.
But Carey played down her reputation as a freakishly demanding diva. "I can be difficult and a little bit rigid about what I want," she was quoted in the Daily Mail as saying. "I don't think I'm demanding enough."
The singer's extravagant behaviour was nothing new. When she visited London in 2005, Carey demanded she be driven around her hotel at 2am until she could make return to the hotel via a red carpet lined with white candles.

Sales and number ones (47,036) by Sofia from Portugal

Album sales and number one albums are so relative. For instance, Sia sold 30,000 copies and she tops Billboard. Mariah sold more then that and lands a number 3. So, the question is, was Sia a hit because she topped the chart or was it a flop because she sold less?

Re: Diva down that never was, nikki USA (47,035) by Sofia from Portugal

Im with you. But I don't think Mariah's problem isn't promotion, we saw what happened to JLo. It's a problem with mentality. Today's music listeners are very impressive and brain washed young people that do know a Michael Jackson, a Chet Baker, a Etta James and believe some new acts are the bomb. I accept we must embrace progress and change but I a... read more
