Everyone has their favorite sleeping rituals, but Mariah Carey managed to top most. According to an Us Weekly source, the five-time Grammy winner arranged an eight-hour massage while she slept. The lavish luxury cost Mariah $1,500.

No $1,500 massage is complete without your favorite movie, which is why Mariah made one special request. “She insisted [Sacha Baron Cohen's] Bruno play on repeat,” reports Us Weekly’s source.

The 42-year-old diva most likely needed the therapeutic relief to keep her cool amid beef with “American Idol” co-star Nicki Minaj. The two have been at odds since Minaj lashed out at Mariah during auditions in Charlotte, NC.

Mariah Carey is no stranger to unusual spending habits. She made news when she placed her dogs in therapy to prepare for the arrival of twins with hubby Nick Cannon. She even spent $100,000 on a nursery, according to MSN.com.

“American Idol” returns for season 12 on January 16th. We don’t know if that’s enough time for Mariah to patch things up with Nicki Minaj. But after a $1,500 massage, she is expected to be well-rested.
