Mariah Carey can't have 20 white kittens or 100 white doves
Not to be outdone by tales of Beyonce renting an entire Liverpool hotel room just for her baggage, Mariah Carey is probably off pouting because British health and safety officials refused to let her be surrounded by 20 white kittens and 100 white doves as she turned on a shopping center's Christmas lights in London. No wonder the world hates America.
It's not like organizers of the complex's celebration could find them anyway: 'We did manage to source the doves that we were going to release into the sky, but the kittens proved terribly difficult," a source told the Daily Mail. "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."
The menagerie was among a list of demands the 39-year-old diva had for the Thursday event. She also wanted 80 security guards; pink, butterfly-shaped confetti to be thrown into the air; a pink carpet; a wand to "wave" on the lights; consideration for an entourage of 15 recording execs and PR people and a Rolls Royce to drive her to the place.
"We have worked extremely hard to make sure that Mariah's event is fantastic," the source said. "Even the model of car had to be changed six times to one that her people liked."
Oh, we remember Mimi back during her Vision of Love days, when marrying the head of Columbia Records was the most dastardly thing she could do.
