Mariah Carey has been around for a very very long time. We’re talking early 90s people. And in her nearly 30 years of being on top she’s developed quite the reputation for being a diva. In fact so much so that it kind of goes hand in hand with her personality and is even a contributing factor in her popularity. At this point in her career it’s almost “expected” in a way. However, tell that to the people she actually has to show up to work for. It’s not fun to say the least.
Carey recently made an appearance in the new upcoming comedy The House which is starring Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler. Apparently things were pretty rocky with the singer and staff on the set. According to Uproxx
“We did some reshoots with a pop star named Mariah Carey. It did not go well,” comedian Rob Hueble recently revealed on SiriusXM’s Entertainment Weekly Radio show. “It was bananas,” he added. Apparently, Mariah showed up four hours late to work, and asked that her trailer be stocked with white roses and stuffed lamb animals. But that was nothing compared to her behavior once she made it to the set.
“She was hired to sing one song, and she was like, ‘You guys, I don’t want to sing that song.’ They’re like, ‘We hired you to sing this song…So then they were going to do this bit where they shoot her, I think, and they kill her – in the movie. Not in real life. But she didn’t want that. She was like, ‘I don’t think my character would get killed by bullets. What if I deflected them like Wonder Woman?’ They were like, ‘Mariah, we don’t have time for [this]. You’re getting paid so much money. We have you for one day. We don’t have time to argue with you. Just do it.’ She just didn’t want to do what they wanted her to do.”
Unfortunately none of this is surprising and Carey’s reputation will not take any hits whatsoever.
