Music's Most Demanding Divas

Mariah Carey

Mariah raised the bar for divas everywhere with the revelation that she once requested a "staircase assistant" whose primary job responsibility is to test stairs to make sure they are safe for the singer to walk down.

The unusual demand ranks up there with Mimi’s best, including her insistence on custom toilet paper in her dressing room. Other necessities include a $200 bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon, two dozen white roses and vanilla aromatherapy candles. As for the furnishings, there should be "no busy patterns; black, dark grey, cream, dark pink are all fine." The temperature of the room "should be about 75 degrees" and there should be a lamp so that "harsh lighting may be turned off" in her backstage bathroom."

The singer also reportedly has assistants follow her to make sure she's filmed from the right side and to protect her from falling backward, and has a special attendant in her dressing room just to hand her towels. She once demanded to be surrounded by 20 white kittens and 100 white doves at a public event. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo by Ben Gabbe/Getty Images)
