Mariah Carey performs all her own stunts in her music videos.
The R&B legend is famous for her elaborate promos which have seen her ride a jet ski for 1997 single 'Honey' and fight a love rival for 1999's 'Heartbreaker' among other things.
Mariah is adamant there is no camera trickery involved or stunt doubles replacing her as she likes to shoot every scene herself.
In a feature for Us Weekly magazine entitled '25 Things You Don't Know About Me', she revealed: "I do all of my own stunts in videos. The jet ski scenes, the fight scenes, all of them!"
However, one video shoot has gone wrong.
When Mariah was making the promo for the remix of '#Beautiful' - directed by her estranged husband Nick Cannon - in July 2013 when she slipped on stage while wearing a gown and heels.
The singer - who has four-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe with Nick - insists the pain of the injury was worse than childbirth and two years later she has only just finished physiotherapy for it.
She said: "I dislocated my shoulder two years ago, and it was the worst pain I've ever experienced. I had to wear a glove for a while because it affected my hand as well. Thanks to physical therapy, I'm finally glove-free!"
