Mariah Carey - popcorn diva
16:30 22 February 2006
Mariah Carey insists on having popcorn in her dressing room before she performs.
The pop diva, famed for her outlandish backstage demands, reportedly requests that bags of the sweet snack are available for her to much on before and after her shows.
A source told Britain's Daily Express newspaper: "When she was promoting her last single in the UK, she asked for Butterkist toffee popcorn in her dressing room."
Meanwhile, Mariah has blamed her Chanel dress for her imperfect appearance at the recent Golden Globe awards.
On the night, US fashion expert David Evangelista said the 'Hero' singer's plunging black number "looked like a wine bottle opener".
Now Carey has hit back, blaming the outfit's figure-hugging fabric.
She fumed: "Satin is very unforgiving.
"What was I going to do? Call Karl Legerfeld and say, 'Can you please make it out of matte jersey instead?'"
