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.
Halle Berry & Her Wig Return For L.A. Riots Drama ‘Kings’
We may know why Halle Berry had those trendils of terrors at last years Oscars ceremony … she was in character for her new flick Kings.
The trailer just dropped and Berry’s curly locks are pretty identical to the ones she infamously rocked at the 2017 Academy awards. Folks went in on the gorgeous beauty about her hair choice for the evening, but we think once people see the trailer they’ll give her a pass.
Kings tells the story of Millie (Berry), a single mother with eight children, and some of them aren’t even her own. But she takes it upon herself to give them the best home that she can, even if it brings a little craziness into her neighborhood and drives her next door neighbor Obie (Daniel Craig) a little crazy. But there’s turmoil on the horizon after the Rodney King verdict is announced and the riots begin, seemingly putting Millie and her family in danger on the streets.
Similar to last years Detroit the flick, directed by Deniz Gamze Ergüven tackles racial tensions between citizens and law enforcement. Kings received mixed reviews when it premiered at September’s Toronto International Film Festival, but audiences will get to make up their own minds about the hot-button race-relations drama when it lands in theaters on April 27.
