She’s the quintessential diva and we bloody LUV her for it.
The sunglasses. The yachts. The tres sequinned outfits. Everything.
Look, if I had to sum up the songstress in a single ‘gram, it’d be this one:
Being the world’s sassiest pop queen, we thought our honourary Aussie (in case you missed it, she’s engaged to bajill-zill-squillionaire James Packer) deserved a tribute.
A listicle tribute, if you will, for all the Mariah Moments that have captivated us over the years.
1. That time she appeared on HSN
Whowuddathunkit – Mariah Carey graced the Home Shopping Network with her goddess-like presence.
Back in 2011, the pop star DEMANDED the live TV crew only film her from particular angles, and snapped whenever the cameraman dared to go rogue.
Oh, she wasn’t thrilled about her earrings selling for “only $40”, either. Savage.
2. That time she gave birth to a soundtrack of herself singing.
Mariah said in interviews that in 2011 when she was in labour with her twin girls, Monroe and Moroccan Scott (of course), she asked hospital staff to play a live version of her hit "Fantasy" as she birthed.
Why? "So they could hear the applause as they entered the world."
3. That time she expected a red carpet to be rolled out wherever she went.
Ohhhh THAT time.
Back in 2005, Mariah booked to stay at the Baglioni Hotel in London - but wouldn't enter the room until her "crew" made sure everything was up to Mariah's lavish standards.
According to the mags, she even refused to get out of the limo until hotel staff rolled out a red carpet for her arrival.
