Music royal Mariah Carey has been named “queen” of many things: whistles, Billboard Hot 100, shade, and, let some of us tell it…umm..the universe.
But, a recent interview with our buds at Buzzfeed shows Mimi has a few other things she thinks she rules – namely ‘Taboo’ (the board game) and the kitchen (as we also saw here).
Going over ’40 Things You Should Know About Mariah,’ the 45-year-old diva dishes on her likes, many dislikes, new Christmas film, and so much more. Get into some fun-filled – and somewhat shady – highlights below:
1. What do you love most about your career?
Mariah Carey: I love being able to do what I love for a living most about my career. It would suck to be stuck doing something I hated.
2. What, so far, has been your favorite career moment?
MC: Wow, I’ve been blessed and had so many moments. It definitely has to do with the Lambilys. My fans have made all my career moments special for me.
3. Do you have a favorite moment in your new Vegas show?
MC: I love performing “Infinity” in Vegas because to see the people singing along to such a brand-new song — I just wrote and recorded it three months ago — it’s one of my favorite things.
4. Do you have a personal favorite off your #1 to Infinity album?
MC: Hmmm, a friend of mine told me last night that his favorite song was “My All,” and I have had lot of people tell me that’s their favorite song. And that song is based on a real moment; I wrote in the album credits for #1 to Infinity that was the first time I fell in love with love, and it’s true. I went to Puerto Rico and had MOMENTS; they weren’t severe moments, but they were moments for me, Miss Goody Two-Shoes, and out came “My All.” But, I am not going to claim it as my favorite ‘cause I love “Fantasy,” as well as the newer songs “We Belong Together” and “Touch My Body.”
5. Is there an artist that you’d like to collaborate with whom you haven’t worked with yet?
MC: I want to collaborate with me ‘cause I’ve done so many collaborations that after a certain point unless you’re really working with a certain caliber of an artist, there’s no point [to collaborate]. It just becomes, ‘Oh, let’s throw these two people together,’ and that’s what I feel is wrong with some of the collaborations that happen today and, dare I say, I helped paved the way for some of these little collaborations that happened today.
7. So this is a new chapter for you, what do you want to accomplish next?
MC: There are a lot things I have on the horizon that I’m going to be doing: acting, singing, even writing for movies. I think I’d even like to score a movie — I don’t know why that hasn’t happened yet, clearly someone isn’t on their game.
16. Which Plastic (from Mean Girls) would you want as your BFF?
Regina George — you have to be on her good side. Honestly, I would just want to be her; she’s the best.
20. Champagne or wine?
Right now I’m not trying to have either one of them. But if I had to, it’s all about the glass, so I would have to go with the champagne flute — it’s the best look.
22. What are you binge-watching right now?
Scandal, I have to admit. I was binge-watching How to Get Away With Murder and Veep.It’s freaking hilarious, I live for Veep.
23. NSYNC or One Direction?
Oh come on, oh come now. Do you really expect me to answer that question?
32. What is one thing that a true diva could not live without?
I guess a smart remark every now and then, a good sip of water.
40. What’s your favorite song to sing at Christmas?
I have to go with my own, “All I Want for Christmas Is You.” I still love it. Even though it’s not my favorite vocal performance, or the best thing I’ve done in that way. It’s just for fun, it’s… moments, dahhling.
I’m the queen of festivities, that’s all I can say.
