It’s no secret that Mariah Carey likes to show some skin, and that’s certainly the case with the cover of the Las Vegas edition of “Paper” magazine. The singer is topless on the cover with only her hair covering her chest. She’s also wearing fishnet stockings and a huge piece of jewelry that wraps around her waist and goes all the way up to her neck.
Meanwhile, inside Mariah discusses her reputation as a diva. When asked about her favorite diva moment, Mariah replies bluntly, “I’ve never had a diva moment.” She later concedes that she has had them, noting, “people can't handle it. I guess it's a little intense.”
Mariah insists her diva attitude is just her way of channeling her mom, a former opera singer, who she calls a “true diva.” “So when people hear me say, like, 'Dahling da da da da' and talk that way, it's kinda like I'm channeling my mother,” she says. “Not that she says 'dahling' all the time, but like that voice is... it's like I inadvertently do it, and I don't do it to be disrespectful, I just do it and it just happens and it's like, [in diva voice] 'I don't even know why.”
