Mariah Carey is known for being the biggest diva in the world. Why anyone would invite her to do anything is beyond me. She’s not even that popular anymore.
But for some reason the studio behind Will Ferrell’s latest comedy ‘The House‘ invited her on set for a cameo in the film. She was booked for a one day shoot, and during this day, she was scheduled to perform a song in the movie.
It never happened, though. During an interview on Watch What Happens Live, Ferrell talked about why viewers should not expect to see Mariah in the film. According to Ferrell, the 47-year-old singer arrived to set four hours late, and had a list of ridiculous demands. She requested a trailer full of stuffed lamb dolls.
She also had silly script notes, “One script note was ‘I don’t want to do this scene.’ Even though it was totally approved at the time.” The plan was for her to sing one of her songs, but when she arrived to film the scene, she told the production crew she wanted to sing a different song.
“[She wanted to sing] something else, which is hard with clearance, and it became quite a kerfuffle… a.k.a. s**tstorm. At 11 p.m., there was a knock on my trailer door and they said ‘You could go home,’ I got in my car and left everyone at set, and it didn’t happen.”
Another actor from the movie, Rob Huebel, talked specifically about the scene changes Mariah wanted…
“She was like, ‘I don’t think my character would get killed by bullets. What if I deflected them like Wonder Woman?’ 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.”
Well, it’s official. Mariah Carey is insane, and she probably shouldn’t be allowed to leave her own house.
