Mariah Carey's no stranger to throwing a strop or being, well, Mariah Carey.
She's pretty much synonymous with diva antics, and whether it's on stage at a concert or on a film set, she's going to do what she does best. According to a since-deleted Facebook post by Cedric Yarbough, who stars in the upcoming comedy The House alongside Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler, Mariah Carey was all set for an extended cameo in the film - but was eventually cut.
While Will Ferrell may have already revealed that fact on Seth Meyers, Cedric Yarbough gave a pretty valid reason as to why that was the case. As Yarbough tells it, Carey arrived on set almost four hours late and then - surprise, surprise - had a list of demands. "While we waited the director & team had the idea of doing a stunt that Mariah's body double would do now & bring in Mariah to match it. They do the stunt. All goes well. When Mariah finally showed up she refused to match the stunt. ‘Darling, I would never do it that way…'. I heard her say those exact words."
Yarbough goes on, saying that Mariah "then requested a large fan for her hair to be blown around and a camera that would be above her, basically a crane shot," and called her "unprofessional & borderline abusive to our director, who tried his best to appease her every wish."
So, there you have it. Mariah Carey's gonna Mariah Carey, and she Mariah Carey'd her way out of a cameo in a studio comedy.
