Calling Mariah Carey a diva is like calling the sky blue — it’s a given. But, it looks like she may have upped her diva-ness to a new level.
Mi Mi is set to play herself in the upcoming comedy, The House, starring Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler. But, in true Mi Mi fashion, she brought along her diva ‘tude to the set and co-star Rob Huebel wasn’t having it. During a recent interview on Entertainment Weekly’s SiriusXM radio show, Huebel revealed that Carey showed up four hours late to her only day of shooting. To make matters worse, she demanded that “all white roses” and “stuffed lambs” fill her trailer. Seems to be typical Mariah behavior.
But, it didn’t end there. Carey was supposed to perform just one song but decided, on the day of shooting, that she no longer wanted to do that song. And speaking of things she didn’t want to do, her character was supposed to be shot and killed but, you guessed it, Mi Mi wasn’t down with that either.
“She was like, ‘I don’t want that. I don’t feel like my character would get killed by bullets. Like, what if I deflected them like Wonder Woman?'” Huebel said Carey suggested. “They were like, ‘Mariah, we don’t have time for… You’re getting paid so much money. We have you for like one day. We don’t have time to argue with you. Just do it.'”
You’ll have to wait until The House hits theaters on June 30th to see if Mariah’s scene made the cut, but by the sounds of it, we’d be surprised if it did.
