Mariah Demands 20 White Kittens

One thing I really love about celebrities is when they make crazy demands. Mariah Carey is one of the most fun celebrities in this regard, because her diva demands are truly insane. I also really enjoy her weirdly girlish personality--she's like a tween trapped in a woman's body, with her obsessions with kittens and rainbows and butterflies. Except "trapped" isn't the right word, because what tween girl wouldn't want to be Mariah Carey, with the power to make all her girly glittery fantasies come true?? Well, not all of them, I guess. They did say ix-nay to the ittens-kay. But at least Mariah tried, that's the important thing. Also, she thinks she is "not demanding enough" which is one of the hallmarks of a true diva. They always think their insane demands are perfectly reasonable:

"Mariah Carey's demands to have 20 white kittens at a Christmas lights switch-on have been blocked by health and safety officials. The diva reportedly wanted the young felines and 100 white doves to accompany her at the extravagant switch-on ceremony at Westfield shopping centre, in west London.

"She also requested to be showered with butterfly-shaped confetti - her favourite insect - while standing on a pink podium and waving a magic wand.

"The American singer will arrive in a Rolls-Royce car and be accompanied by 80 security guards as well as her 15-strong entourage. But while most of her demands have been met, health and safety officials refused her request to have kittens and doves - because animals are not allowed inside the complex.

"A source told Britain's Daily Mail newspaper: "We did manage to source the doves that we were going to release into the sky, but the kittens proved terribly difficult. In the end, it was made clear that due to health and safety, there was no way we could have the animals at Westfield. Pets are not allowed in Westfield - that rule would apply for everyone. We have worked extremely hard to make sure that Mariah's event is fantastic. Even the model of car had to be changed six times to one that her people liked."

"The 'Hero' singer, who is appearing on UK TV talent show 'The X Factor' this weekend, recently admitted she loves being a diva - but doesn't think she is demanding enough.

"She said: "You know what? I guess I am a diva in many ways! When it comes to certain things, yes, I can be difficult and a little bit rigid about what I want. Am I demanding? I don't think I'm demanding enough.""


  1. She must not own any cats. Dogs or puppies might be trained to frolic within a certain area. Kittens though? She might find herself upstaged ;-D

    Kittens aside, the doves would rain poop on the guests and the Diva nad the Diva's group. I think there must be some Outrageous Diva requests contest going. Hey, that could be a coffee table book! Outrageous Diva Requests.

  2. Oooh, that's a GREAT coffee table book idea. I wanna read it!
