Mariah Carey's diva dogs
Mariah Carey claims she is not a diva, despite admitting her dogs have their own entourage
Mariah Carey's dogs have their own entourage.
The singer insisted having assistants on hand for her Jack Russell pooches Cha Cha and JJ while filming a recent commercial, but insists she is not a diva.
She told Britain's Hello! magazine: "My puppies are starring in this ad with me, too. I had my team with me but the pups had a mini entourage of their own, of course! And why wouldn't they? It was a big shoot and even my entourage had an entourage - my stylist had an assistant, my security had extra security.
"The shoot was based on the fact that some people think I'm a demanding diva. I have no idea why people have that impression!"
The 'Fantasy' singer has previously admitted to feeling baffled by her "demanding" reputation.
She said: "I am baffled, shocked and appalled when I am called a diva. I've never done one diva-ish thing in my life. The actual definition of a diva is a woman who sings well.
"The secondary definition is a woman who is difficult to deal with. I hope I am the first, but I really don't think I am the second. I don't believe I am truly nasty and act in a bad way."
