Pop superstar Mariah Carey has confessed she is a diva.
The sexy singer has often faced accusations of diva-like behaviour as she
rose to chart-topping success. But unlike Jennifer Lopez and many other fellow
superstars, Mariah declares that the title is fitting for her - even if her
differs to others.
She says, "Everybody's a diva these days. You can be the diva of
garbagewomen - it doesn't matter. It's a little bit tired.
"When I was growing up, my mother was an opera singer, so I connected
divas to someone who can really sing and is a bit grandiose. So I guess that
would be me.
But she warns fans not to believe everything they read about her; "There
are rumours about how I walked into a hotel and insisted on completely
redecorating a room before I stayed there.
"Even funnier is that apparently I also refuse to walk on carpeting. So I
guess I hover. How do people think I get from Point A to Point B?"
