Mariah Carey has become known for her extravagant lifestyle. Now she wants to travel in style. Carey recently decided to spend £70,000 on a plane ride from New York to France in which the entire first class cabin has been booked.
The lady doth protest too much! Mariah Carey has booked the entire first class cabin of a British Airways flight for a whopping 70,000 pounds. She will be flying the Atlantic in style from New York to France in order to attend the Cannes Film Festival. All this is still a month away.
Mariah seems to have taken this decision so that her pesky fans on board the plane don’t keep coming up to her to ask for autographs or photo opportunities. She is a successful singer and so commands quite a lot of money as compensation for her wonderful songs.
So over time, Mariah has become used to travelling in luxurious settings. Some commentators have suggested that it would be less of a hassle for Mariah Carey to just get her own jet airplane instead of shelling out such an astronomical sum for a plane ride.
According to a source, ''Over the years Mariah has grown accustomed to travelling in ultimate style so she doesn't think twice about paying such a crazy amount to ensure her privacy. At least she'll be able to stock up on the missing passengers' complimentary eye masks and hot towels.''
Mariah Carey is a diva of the first degree. Her hissy fits and temper tantrums, which she shows if things don’t go her way, are famous. But she insists that she has no mental illness. It is just part of the story of fame. She churns out such classic hits that the hefty amounts of money she is paid in return have spoilt her a little.
Mariah has two little kids from husband Nick Cannon. She won’t be taking them along with her on that flight from New York to France though. Mariah prefers her privacy.
''Let's hope she doesn't demand that British Airways lays out fluffy carpets for her, kits out the upper deck with puppies and paints the interiors cream. To be honest, it would be cheaper for Mariah to just hire her own private jet,'' said the source.
Meanwhile, her latest album is still not out in the market. It seems it got delayed somehow. Yet there are many who say that she plans a surprise release for her album. This could be in a copycat manner to Beyonce who is known for such last moment revelations.
