Mariah Carey Hits Bum Note in Las Vegas Casino
Throwing tantrums, making outlandish demands and generally terrorising anybody who dares to come within earshot of their dulcet tones are the trademarks of a true diva. Indeed, if there’s one singer in modern times that encapsulate the word diva more than any other it’s Mariah Carey. The warbler is well known for throwing a wobbly backstage and getting her way but on her most recent trip to Las Vegas things didn’t go quite so smoothly.
After complaining of a sore throat the singer demanded to see a doctor before she took to the stage at The Colosseum on the Las Vegas strip. The examination meant she eventually started her performance 2 hours late and instead of receiving a rapturous applause for her efforts she was greeted by a wave of boos from the disgruntled crowd. In an attempt to justify her selfish actions she said: “I got sick yet again because it's winter, I didn't think I could come out here tonight. It's not so glam at 6:30 in the morning when you're coughing and sounding like a frog."
This most recent act follows Mariah’s drunken antics on stage at the Palm Springs Film Festival last month. While accepting her award she bumbled through her acceptance speech clearly the worse for wear before finally staggering off the stage. The latest incident is unlikely to endear her to the fans that paid to see the concert but when you’ve sold as many records and gained as many fans as Mariah it probably doesn’t matter, well, to her at least it doesn’t.
