We wouldn't be surprised if we looked up "diva" in the dictionary and saw a picture of Mariah Carey. While the Grammy-winning singer certainly has the pipes and resume to back up the title — she holds the record for most no. 1 singles by a female recording artist — does her Billboard status justify her outrageous demands?
According to her contract rider obtained by The Smoking Gun, she's been known to demand chilled Cristal, two dozen white roses, and dark-colored couches without busy patterns for her dressing room.
Of course, that's nothing compared to her rumored 2009 demand for 20 white kittens and 100 white doves to be released while she turned on Christmas lights at Westfield London Shopping Centre. The demand could not be met due to health hazards, but Westfield was able to accommodate her request to roll out the pink carpet for her and then shower the crowd with pink and white butterfly-shaped confetti. Did she learn nothing from Glitter?!
