Mariah “I’m not a diva” Carey acting like a diva on tour


Yesterday Mariah Carey made a big deal about dispelling the longstanding belief that she’s a total diva. Unfortunately, while her words said one thing, her actions said another: she’s still a total diva. In fact MSNBC has a detailed article about the ridiculous lengths Carey’s staff has to go to in order to ensure she’s constantly protected (security sweeps before concerts, none of the venue’s own staff allowed in), given access to proper stylists (demanding six figures for her hair and makeup people alone), and generally catered to at all times. But don’t worry, she’s not some crazy diva.

Mariah Carey is not without flaws, as evidenced by the title of her new album “Confessions of an Imperfect Angel,” but her behavior on her current publicity tour is calling into question the veracity of the angelic claim as well.

“Her security is doing walk-throughs of her performance locations prior to her appearances, as if she’s the president or something,” said one person who was present at one such sweep.

It’s even more intense on the day of a Carey performance, says the source. “She’ll show up with more than a dozen people on her team, and she’s been asking that the people who actually work there are removed from the floor and only her staffers be present,” said the source, who adds that the demand is not always met.

The level of high maintenance Carey is displaying while promoting both “Imperfect Angel” and her new film, “Precious”, didn’t surprise one person, who has worked with Carey in the past.

“We were paying for her travel, her expenses, and yet she still wanted to be compensated nearly six figures just for hair and makeup,” said the source.

I imagine bomb sniffing dogs and security guys hanging from the rafters, all in an attempt to make sure Mariah is totally safe at any given moment. I understand having security, and I understand being worried when you’re famous. But is Mariah Carey really the biggest target? Unless some person were forced to sit through Glitter, I doubt they actually hold a homicidal grudge against her.

Mariah is still on the baby talk circuit. Meaning all she’s doing is chatting up the potential children that she and Nick Cannon want to have, while insisting she’s not pregnant. It’s starting to get a little annoying – if you want to have kids, then have them already! Stop telling us about your secret baby names and all this hypothetical nonsense.

Mariah Carey has given the biggest hint yet that she’s planning to become a mom — she’s been choosing baby names with her husband Nick Cannon!

The singer insists she isn’t pregnant — but she is prepared.

“We have to keep the name secret because if we told everybody, then somebody might use it and then we have to change it, and then it wouldn’t be as good,” she said Tuesday on SIRIUS XM’s Morning Mash Up. “We picked these names out a long time ago.”

In that same article Mariah also claims she likes to go out in public disguised in Nick’s clothes. I’m sorry, but I bet I could count on one hand the number of times I’ve seen Mariah in anything other than a too-short lycra-infuse dress. We’ve just gone over all the ways in which Mariah is not low maintenance. Are we really supposed to buy that she’s in Nick’s jeans and a t-shirt? But remember, this is the new Mariah. The low key, relaxed, down to earth Mariah. She loves babies and puppies and big fuzzy sweatshirts. As long as they’re all custom made with pink diamonds. Dogs included.

Here’s Mariah dressed like a man while filming the music video for “Obsessed” on June 29th. She seems to be a natural, maybe she wasn’t BSing. Images thanks to Fame Pictures .

    I could never see this woman as a “Mother”! She is just wayyyyyyy so self absorbed.

  2. lilred says:

    That’s why she has Nick so he can be the Mommy.

  3. Obvious says:

    I’m sorry Mariah, do you think you are the only Mariah in the world? There is no other Nick in the world. Chances are honey that unless you name your child Nincampoop-numchucks-wolf-whatever the hell Lisa Bonet named hers, the name will already have been used by someone else.

  4. Miss Thang says:

    I can only imagine the number of death threats and psycho stalkers that follow this woman everywhere she goes. I can’t help but wonder if these precautions don’t stem from an incident or near incident in the past. That’s not the type of thing they like to make public if they can help it.

  5. Emily says:

    @Obvious, apparently the kid’s going to be Hello Chiizu (not sure if I spelt the last word right). So, I’m thinking that it might actually be a unique name!

  6. neelyo says:

    She’s really overpaying her hairstylists.

  7. Merridith says:

    Like she could fit her ass in Nick’s clothes, ha.

  8. lilkunta says:

    @obvious : You are bein stupid & disrespectful. Lisa Bonet named her 3rd child Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa. These names are traditional Hawaiian/German names in honor of her boyf’s Jaso Momoa’s culture.

  9. lilkunta says:

    cele|bitchy: Do you not fact check? Her cd is called ‘ MEMOIRS of an imperfect angel’ ; not ‘ Confessions of an impefect angel ‘. Confessions r cds bu Usher & Madonna.

  10. CB Rawks says:

    My idiot sister in law thought she had invented a name for her baby. (She simply miss-spelled an existing -and quite common- name.) It turned out that even the phonetic hot mess she came up with was already out there and you can get cheap-ass bracelets with it pre-engraved. So we did. She was gobsmacked.

  11. Emily says:

    @lilkunta: what, exactly is a Hawaiian/German name? That combination made me lol.

  12. Nicole says:

    She always struck me as a prima donna. And yea I agree, she seems way too into herself to have children. Besides, she’s already got her bitch husband.

  13. mark says:

    1. Nick Cannon is no jeans-and-tshirt guy, or haven’t you folks ever seen any photos of him? I’ve spent many days involved in business with him, and he is consistantly one of the best-dressed men I’ve ever encountered.
    2. How do we know Mariah isn’t currently suffering from a serious, threatening stalker, making extra precautions nessecary?
    3. If you have 3 people on your hair and makeup team making 33 a year each, isn’t that 6 figures?

  14. C-DUB says:

    She probably has the security sweeps to make sure no one is taping her and then posting it on YouTube. People are scandalous! She’s a diva but she can still sing any of these chics under the table.

    I still think that you are one of the most beautiful stupid fat girls I have ever seen. I can’t stand your high pitched noise, but I can look at you for a long time.

  16. connie says:

    You need help girl, you looked better before you got the boob job, don’t you know that big boobs make you look fatter fool. I will give it to you that you can sing but when you hit that pitch it’s a turnoff, be yourself and maybe you can get respect, how can you even say you are not a DIVA….. LOOK IN THE MIRROR LADY!
