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.

Andrew (47,726) by LC from USA

I agree with your post on Mariah not being able to let go of certain lip synced parts of her songs. Like, the first parts of the choruses of My All. Those parts are really easy for her to sing, as shown by her hitting the exact notes in later performances. Also, in Hero, when she's singing the long note in "the way", it's completely unnecessary bec... read more

Andrew / Tommy and his posse (47,725) by Edward from USA

Andrew, I read Tommy's "Hitmaker: The Man And His Music" to have a better understanding about the development of Mariah's career and what went on between them. Even though the book is not centered on Mariah, it gives a good insight about the situation. It was interesting to find out what her reaction was to losing to all her Grammy nominations back... read more

New annual Christmas shows in New York / sponsored by Coca Cola (47,724) by Saint from UK

Damn I wish I was a New Yorker right now. The first annual set of Christmas shows in December are going to be amazing. Remember the Merry Christmas II You TV special? I think it's amazing that Mariah will be allowing fans to see her during her favorite time of year. Every year during a time when AIWFCIY goes to #1 every year and she's in the forefr... read more
