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.

Thank you David for that message. I'm glad to see someone agrees with me or at least is able to see that evil does exist in the music industry. Lately I've been thinking Mariah should add a couple of songs about the Lord on her album, she always thanks God and she has some songs here and there but I think a couple of songs would be a blessing for a... read more

Ok (42,828) by G.G. from USA

You're right, MC doesn't owe any of us anything, and in return we do not owe her our blind support any longer. If you make the huge mistake of alienating, irritating and disrespecting your die hard core fan base, that's not good for business. After all, it is the music business, emphasis on the word business. I have never felt this way before about... read more

Release dates (42,826) by Darryle from Sagamihara, Japan

Does anyone know why different countries get later or earlier release dates of the albums. Like Europe normally gets them first and US somewhere in the middle. Why is that when most of her sales come from the US anyway? Also why does Japan get bonus tracks when US doesn't? They got 4real4real and Heat and America got the standard edition.
