Mariah Carey has finally addressed her disastrous New Years Eve performance and admitted that she was ‘mortified’.
MARIAH Carey garnered a reputation as being one of the entertainment industry’s biggest divas years ago and she seems to be working hard to maintain it.
The 47-year-old singer recently shot a cameo for Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler’s new movie The House but her appearance wasn’t as easy as it looked.
Actor Rob Huebel revealed exactly what went down behind-the-scenes in a recent interview with Entertainment Weeklyand how Carey behaved.
“F**king what is going on with her? It was bananas,” Huebel told Sirius XM’s EW Radiobefore telling them “it did not go well”.
According to the actor, Carey showed up “four hours late” to the set with plenty of requests before she arrived.
She reportedly required her trailer to be filled with “all white roses and stuffed lambs” despite only being cast in The House for a quick cameo.
“She was hired to sing one song, and she was like, ‘You guys, I don’t want to sing that song.’ They’re like, ‘We hired you to sing this song,’” Huebel said.
In the quick scene, Carey was also supposed to be shot — something she wasn’t happy with.
“So then they were going to do this bit where they shoot her, I think, and they kill her — in the movie. Not in real life. But she didn’t want that. She was like, ‘I don’t think my character would get killed by bullets. What if I deflected them like Wonder Woman?’” Huebel said she asked.
“They were like, ‘Mariah, we don’t have time for [this]. You’re getting paid so much money. We have you for one day. We don’t have time to argue with you. Just do it.’ She just didn’t want to do what they wanted her to do,” Huebel added.
It’s still unknown whether or not they kept Carey in the final cut and when the radio show asked Huebel if she was still in the movie, he gave a blunt response.
“Just know, if you see her, they had to work for it,” he said.
The House stars Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler who start an illegal casino to fund their daughter’s hefty college tuition. It is slated for Australian release on 29 June.
