Mariah Carey


It's looking like fans who want to get up close and personal with Mariah Carey, might not get close at all – even if you do pay €640 to meet her.

According to reports, the singer's bodyguards warns fans to keep their hands to themselves when going to meet the Hero singer during the pricey meet and greets.

A source told The Sun: "There were strict instructions for fans. No kissing, touching, grabbing or hugging Mariah. She was allowed to touch fans but they were told by bodyguards they weren't to touch her."

Nearly 650 quid is a bit pricey to just stand and stare at the singer, but her fans don't seem to mind.

"Everyone has been very respectful of the rule so far," the source said.

"Most of them are just so excited to meet Mariah they haven't cared too much about the fact they have to keep their distance. But a few fans have been grumbling it's a bit unfair."

We doubt Mariah will ever stop with her diva behaviour, and she'll probably amp it up a bit while she films her new reality show

Ah, the lives of the rich and famous.



Mariah Carey may be considered a bona fide diva, but this seems a bit excessively diva-ish, even for her. 

According to the Sun, Mariah's brother Morgan has called out his famous sister for allegedly refusing to help out the family with the cost of her sister's medical bills. 

Morgan is the eldest of Mariah's three siblings and her younger sister Alison is reported to be recovering after a near-fatal accident in Hawaii last year. 

"Your sister is dying and she is struggling and where are you?" Morgan reportedly said to the paper.

"You think you are so fabulous, but you are a witch.

"Mariah needs to step up. I flew in from Hawaii last year when Alison was taken off a ventilator, believing she was going to die." 

"Thankfully, Alison had a miraculous recovery but now she needs brain and spinal surgery and will be going into hospital any day."

According to the Daily Mail, the sisters have been estranged since the mid-nineties. 

Alison, a mother-of-four, has admitted in interviews that she is HIV positive and has previously worked as a prostitute in New York to fund a drug habit. 

Mariah is currently planning to wed her billionaire fiancé, James Packer. 


Mariah Carey is known for her diva-like nature – and now we get to see it all on camera.

The singer is filming her own reality TV series about the behind-the-scenes drama of her Las Vegas residency and her two-month European tour, reveals Us Weekly.

“Mariah’s excited to show some personal family moments,” says the pal. “It’ll definitely show another side to her.

“Her manager is a reality TV producer and got her the deal,” says a second source.

We can only guess this will be one jam-packed reality show and Mariah will be brilliant to watch on camera.

Let's just hope she doesn't go too over the top!


Mariah Carey is engaged to her billionaire boyfriend, James Packer, after only a few months of dating. 

Representatives of the singer confirmed to the Mirror yesterday that the 45-year-old pop star said yes to her loaded businessman beau. 

According to sources, the 48-year-old Australian gathered some of Mariah's closest friends and family in New York before popping the question down on one knee. 

The pair first met in  2014 at a movie premiere but only struck up a romance in June of last year. 

"It's crazy how perfect they are together, they both know it and couldn't be happier," a source told E! news, also claiming that the ring is going to come in at a whopping 35 carets. 

This will be the third marriage for each of the couple, with James having three children from previous relationships and Mariah having twins from her marriage to Nick Cannon. 

James, who is Australia's fourth richest man, and Mariah spent a lot of time getting to know each other over the summer as they spent several weeks on a luxury yacht. 


We know Dolly Parton has Dollywood, a theme park dedicated to everything Dolly. And Taylor Swift, of course, has The Taylor Swift Education Centre, where you can learn literally everything there is to know about Tay Tay. 

But now, Mariah Carey wants to go one further and build a museum in tribute to her 25-year career. And that's not it. She wants to make it portable as well. 

An insider told Heat that Mariah thinks the world deserves a shrine of her work and many achievements. 

They were also told that it will display, "her concert outfits, platinum record collection, a recreation of her childhood home, award-show footage and vintage recordings playing on loop, baby photos, treasures from her home, displays of her jewellery collection and home movies of her children." Wow. 

The insider adds, "She has warehouses full of Mariah memorabilia, and I think she'd really throw herself into the project."

And who will be funding this portable museum, you ask? That would be Mariah's billionaire boyf, James Packer. 

"He can't say no to his girlfriend, even though he thinks this idea is way out there, even for Mariah.

"She thinks the whole thing would cost around $20m (€18m) to build a travelling museum, with the first stop being Las Vegas and her home town, New York."


We all know Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without a bit of Mariah Carey. 

Every corner you turn, All I Want For Christmas Is You blares from the rooftops, and there really is no escape. 

But now, it seems Mariah isn't only going to be on our radios as MAC have revealed they are collaborating with the pop princess. 

The MAC x Mariah Carey Beauty Icon full collection won't be released until 2016, but to whet our appetites, a frosty pink lipstick will be hitting stores this December. 

MAC, who themselves describe the lipstick as a frosted champagne shimmer, said: "One swipe makes lips as fierce and timeless as the icon herself."

The rest of the collection is under wraps but we're excited to see what more is to come. 

"It's a major lip moment!" said Mariah in her Instagram announcement. 

It sure is Mariah!



Even A-listers can get starstruck, it seems.

Oscar winner Anne Hathaway couldn't contain her excitement on Monday night when music legend Mariah Carey showed up at the same event as her.

The event in question was the premiere of Anne's new movie, The Intern, which opens in Ireland on Friday September 25.

Realising that the singer was right behind her on the red carpet, Anne stopped mid-interview to have a mini freak-out.

"She's here, she's at MY movie premiere… like she's two arm lengths away right now," she tells a reporter in the video above.

And like most of us when we get starstruck, the flustered actress could barely string a sentence together.

"“It’s just . . . the best glamorous ever," she gushes, before adding. "That's not even a sentence, there's no grammar there."

While the reporter tries to move on with other questions, Anne gets even more excited as the distance between her and Mariah decreases.

"She's like, an arm length away… I just love that this is on camera right now, is she in the background?!"

Anne's The Intern co-star Robert DeNiro had his own interview freak-out this week, but for a very different reason. He stormed out of a Radio Times interview after objecting to the interviewer’s "negative inference" in the questions and refusing to speak to her any longer.

The pair star together in the new comedy-drama, which sees a 70-year-old widower Ben Whittaker (De Niro) taking on the role of 'senior intern' at an online fashion site run by the much younger Jules Ostin (Hathaway).


She has found love with Aussie billionaire James Packer, and now Mariah Carey's ex-husband has also put their divorce firmly behind him.

Yes, TV presenter Nick Cannon appears to be dating Massachusetts-native Samantha Johnson, a gorgeous America's Got Talent contestant (he also hosts the show) who just happens to bear a STRIKING resemblance to his former wife.

In fact, we positively did a double-take!

Not that the man himself seems to mind the comparison. In fact, it is now being reported that Mr Cannon, 34, is delighted that everyone is remarking on the similarity.

A source told Star magazine: "Nick obsesses over how much Samantha resembles his ex. He has gotten a kick out of comparing their smiles."

Samantha was voted off AGT at the semi-finals stage earlier this month. And while the 26-year-old was cautious of being too tactile with Nick on-set, she is said to be more eager to go public in the aftermath of her dismissal from the reality TV show.

Indeed, she took to Twitter early this morning to announce that from tomorrow, fans will be able to fund her debut album.

Nick and Mariah, 45, married in 2008 after whirlwind romance. They went on to have twins – a boy and a girl – together but sadly announced their separation in 2014. He filed for divorce last December. 

Ms Carey remains one of music's biggest stars. Having sold tens of millions of albums during her 25-year career, she is worth close-to half a billion euro.




Reports are suggesting that international superstar Mariah Carey may be expecting a child with her boyfriend James Packer. 

Mariah has been dating the richest man in Australia for months but they only went public about their relationship in June of this year. 

The 45-year-old singer and Australian billionaire already have five children between them and it seems another one could be on the way. 

New Idea has reported that the couple are set to welcome a bundle of joy: "Mariah found out the baby news recently and they're overjoyed at the prospect of being parents" an insider told the publication. 

Mariah has twins with her former husband Nick Cannon whom she split from after their marriage broke down in 2014. 

James already has three children from his marriage with ex-wife Erica Baxter, which would put this baby fourth in line to James' multi-billion dollar casino empire. 

The couple were spotted on holiday together earlier this summer as they sailed around the Balearic Islands together on James's yacht. 

Mariah's four-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe also joined the pair on their romantic holiday as they were spotted hanging out on the boat and playing on the beach with their mum. 



Mariah Carey was at a press event in Israel recently where she talked about how she disapproves of people who manage to attain celebrity status without having spent years building their career.

“Some people’s goal is to be famous, not to have a craft or an art that they’re famous for,” she tod reporters.

She continued:  “Today, you can be famous just from being on a reality…well, doing… you don’t really have to do much, but you kinda gotta do a lot.”

She added that she thinks there is a difference between wanting to be famous and wanting to be successful:  

"And then your whole life is just about being a celebrity and that’s what some people aspire to, because it’s easy and because then everybody knows them and all they see is the bright side of fame."

Mariah confessed that she doesn’t think she could deal with being on a reality TV show, “I couldn’t handle having people with cameras on me all the time.”

We can’t imagine Mariah would be in need of a role on any reality TV consider her music career has gone quite well for her over the years.

As of now she’s had 18 No.1 hits and five Grammy awards is quite impressive.

Mariah recently received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and it seems like she would be less than impressed at having to share the coveted real estate with the likes of Snooki, or the Kardashians or any Made In Chelsea cast members.

However, while she may not be wild about reality TV, that doesn’t mean she’s shying away from the scripted kind.

During her Walk of Fame ceremony, it was announced that she would be joining the cast of the hit series Empire for a number of episodes in their second season.



Mariah Carey is never one to let a little thing like a demanding child get in the way of her moment in the spotlight. Even if that child is one of her own, it seems.

The legendary singer was accepting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame yesterday, and brought her four-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe along for the big moment. Except the little ones really didn't seem to give a toss about their famous mum's special event, and spent most of the time doing what four-year-olds do best… being total messers.

While both Monroe and Moroccan got a little antsy during the presentation and speeches, little Moroccan really outshone his sister with an epic red carpet tantrum as Mariah posed for the cameras.

As his mum lay across the ground next to her new star, Moroccan showed his love by climbing on top of her, hugging her and clinging to her.


Eventually the poor lad had to be pried off his mum by an assistant, in what has to be one of the most iconic celebrity baby moments of 2015. 

It almost beats North West's catwalk tantrum back in February:

As for Mariah, she seemed totally unfazed by the incident and barely broke her showbiz smile for a second despite the screaming child at her side. That's professionalism.

Speaking to PEOPLE after the incident, the newly divorced singer said she wouldn't have had it any other way. "I didn’t know what they were going to do or say. Trust me, it was not planned," she said. "For them to be here was everything. I’m so humbled and grateful."

Bet those photos are getting whipped out at the twins' 21st birthday party…


Beyoncé, Rihanna and co. might have stolen Mariah's thunder a few times over the years when it came to being crowned the ultimate diva, but there's one area Mariah has always won out in… SHOES.

The singer took to Instagram last night to show off a behind-the-scenes look at one of the most enviable rooms in her lavish New York apartment. "Always my favorite room in the house… #shoes #shoes #moreshoes," she wrote, sharing a picture of the plush pink-and-gold carpeted room complete with shelf after shelf of heels and boots.


Mariah and her ex-husband Nick Cannon sold off their $9m (€8.3m) Bel Air mansion back in March, and Mariah has been living full time at her second home in Tribeca ever since. Don't feel too sorry for her though, as the singer's $9.5m (€8.75m) apartment is one of the most luxurious living spaces in the city.

After failing to purchase Barbara Streisand's $8m (€7.4m) penthouse back in 1999, Mariah instead opted to buy into a new 17-storey development in the Lower Manhattan area, purchasing both the duplex penthouse and the apartment below it. The result? A plush "triplex" style apartment with incredible Art Deco style furnishings, six bedrooms, a clothes room (not a wardrobe), and of course, the legendary shoe room.

It's been a rough year for Mariah, whose divorce from Nick was finalised in April after six years of marriage. But with the help of her Australian billionaire boyfriend James Packer, it seems the singer has found happiness again.

We're delighted… now if we could just get our hands on some of those shoes…
