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…
