Mariah Carey is having 3,000 special dolls made - of herself.
The pop diva has allegedly asked toymakers to produce a host of miniature Mariahs - complete with a diamante replica of the butterfly ring she always wears.
A source told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "There'll only be 3,000 of them and while they're supposed to be for kids, they're likely to become instant collectors' items."
Last month, it was revealed the R&B beauty spends 15 hours a day sleeping in a room full of voice-preserving humidifiers before every performance.
The sexy star reportedly insists on the extreme preparation to ensure her voice is in top condition when she goes onstage.
She admitted: "It's bleak, but you've got to do what you've got to do."
Mariah also revealed she never gets out of bed before 5pm.
The stunning singer has confessed she stays awake at night and goes to sleep at 7am, eating her main meal around 2am.
She explained: "I live in my own little universe."
