Will Mariah Carey be a diva on American Idol? If her behavior at a benefit this weekend is any indication, she just might.

According to the New York Post, Mariah attended Russell Simmons’s Art for Life benefit on Saturday and requested that the event’s big screens be turned off before she went onstage because she “wanted to avoid close-ups of her face.”

MC of course obliged, and once she left the stage the screens were switched back on.

Insiders have insisted so far that her Idol-related requests aren’t out of the ordinary, but someone should tell Mariah that she won’t be able to avoid her close-ups on the show!
