Mariah Carey rebound from her disastrous lip-synching debacle in 2016 with her flawless rendition of “Hero” and “Vision of Love” at New York’s Time Square this New Year’s Eve. But in true diva fashion, she ended 2017 with the words “They told me there would be tea. Oh, this is a disaster.”
To make things even better, she then proclaimed, “OK I guess we’ll just have to rough it. I’m going to be just like everyone else with no hot tea.” She later posted a picture of herself enjoying tea (complete with her massive engagement ring from ex-fiance James Packer).
Well, there’s no denying Mariah has a very different idea of what roughing it out means. But if this goes to prove anything, it’s that nobody can out diva Queen Mimi. Here are some of our favourite moments that proved Mariah Carey is not like everyone else. Enjoy dahh-ling.
She threw herself a Mariah-themed party
Only Mariah Carey can pull off a party for no reason in a luxurious $60 million 18th century villa in Lake Como, Italy where the theme requires everyone to come dressed as their favourite version of the diva.
“I don’t know her.”
Nobody throws shade like Mariah. And in the best put-down line ever, when she was asked for an opinion on Jennifer Lopez, Mariah said “I don’t know her.” When Andy Cohen brought up the quote again in 2016, she maintained she didn’t know her. Oh, the shade!
Life’s a fantasy
In an interview with Barbara Walters in 2011, Mariah said she had a live version of her song “Fantasy” playing while she was giving birth to her twins. Why? “So they could hear the applause as they entered the world.”
The $250,000 breakup
In her music video “I Don’t”, Mariah Carey let the world know what she thought of ex-fiance James Packer. In the video, she takes her $250,000 Valentino wedding dress, and throws it into a fire pit.
