The stroppy star provides Westfield with a long list of demands as she agrees to turn on lights
Mariah Carey is known for her diva demands, but she has really excelled herself this time, giving Westfield shopping centre a whopping list of requests after agreeing to switch on their Christmas lights.
Officials were told the star wanted to be surrounded by 20 white kittens and 100 white doves as she turned on the lighting display. But unfortunately, the superstar singer’s demands were refused on health and safety grounds.
A source said: ‘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. We do not allow pets into Westfield – that rule would apply for everyone.
But aside from this, officials worked hard to meet Mariah’s requests. The stroppy singer also asked to be driven by a Rolls-Royce along a pink carpet, to a pink podium where she could wave a wand to turn on the lights.
A source revealed, ‘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 starry singer will bring with her an entourage of 18, and have pink, butterfly shaped confetti showered over her at the end of the ceremony.
This comes after reports yesterday that Mariah kept presenter Philip Schofield waiting for over an hour, after turning up late and deciding to change her dress at the last minute.
The fuming This Morning star tweeted ‘Sitting here twiddling our thumbs waiting for Mariah Carey.. la la la laaa’, remarking afterwards that the star had turned up with an entourage ‘the size of Denmark‘.
Wow! She is one demanding diva!
