Mariah's Grammys strop
13:30 10 February 2006
Mariah Carey reportedly refused to leave her dressing room at the Grammys because she didn't win the Best Album award.
The pop diva allegedly sulked in her private room after the ceremony because Irish rockers U2 had scooped the accolade for their hit LP, 'How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb'.
A source told America's New York Post newspaper: "She ended up back at her hotel with a small group of friends."
Earlier this week, it was claimed Mariah - who won three awards, including Best Contemporary R&B Album for 'The Emancipation of Mimi' - was angry pop rival Madonna was chosen to open the ceremony.
The singer was said to be desperate to headline the star-studded bash.
But Madonna, who performed a duet with animated group Gorillaz, allegedly threatened to boycott the ceremony if she didn't get top billing.
A source revealed: "The war between Madonna and Mariah has been going on for years.
"Mariah was also steaming last summer when Madonna stole the show at Live 8."
