On-stage diva Mariah Carey


Mariah Carey had her hair and make-up re-touched by one of her entourage during a sold-out concert at the weekend.

The 'Hero' singer was performing to a packed out audience at the Borgata Hotel and Casino, in Atlantic City, when her stagehands brought out a chaise longue on which she laid down on. She was then pampered while enjoying a glass of champagne.

Laying back on her on stage throne, she playfully asked: "Do they expect me to stand up for the whole show? They call me a diva... because I am."

During her stay at the hotel, Mariah had a huge rider and needed ten carts to carry all her luggage.

The 40-year-old star recently admitted she loves being known as 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."
