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.

I'm more than positive that MC is not retiring. That wouldn't make sense. Even if the voice was in tatters or the buying public just aren't buying anymore, she loves music. Here's what would happen first. She would continue to make albums quietly like Annie Lennox, Dionne Warwick, Cher, Aretha, Diana Ross and Patti. She would also stop releasing vo... read more

Pushback? Nope (42,720) by tobby from canada

Guys, May 6th is the only date we got since the orginal pushback of last July. It's not like she keeps changing the date over and over. It was July 23rd, then she thought she wanted more time to work on it and now it's May 6th, period. Enjoy the album.
