We always wondered what kind of guy, especially a guy who is reportedly a billionaire, would suffer through a relationship with a high-maintenance diva like Mariah Carey? Well, it’s one that apparently likes to dance and sing to tunes on his iPhone while walking down the street in NYC. Let’s just say that most billionaires, who can bang any chick on the planet, don’t normally want to shake things up with somebody like Mariah Carey, of all people. Not sure if he’s just a very happy guy, but if this is out of the ordinary, I think it’s safe to say that he took a few extra Zoloft pills with his brunch!
As for Mariah, the couple only spent part of the weekend together. After taking her twins Monroe and Morocan to the Bronx Zoo on Sunday morning, Mariah jetted off to Cali and was later seen with friends at the fair in Malibu. James Packer didn’t accompany her, but the couple apparently rendezvoused somewhere in Italy last night to attend a U2 concert. Aaah, the life of the rich & famous! They use their private jets like we use our cars!
Queen Diva Mariah Carey is currently enjoying the billionaire lifestyle courtesy of her new boyfriend James Packer. The singer was seen chilling on his yacht in Ibiza.
So, what’s up with this James Packer guy, anyway? Why put up with somebody like Mariah & her two kids? Is he just a fanatic fan of her music or what? I’m just very confused how a man who can supposedly get his hands on any chick on the planet decides to start a relationship with Mariah Carey, of all people?
We thought Mariah would just be a short fling, but apparently not. It was recently revealed that the new couple visited a spiritual adviser in Jerusalem this past weekend as rumors are swirling that they’re planning to tie knot. Again, what the hell is up with this James Packer guy?
Here’s Queen of All Divas, Mariah Carey vacationing with her baby-doll-twins Monroe and Moroccan in Sardinia. In typical Mariah fashion, she was of course shamelessly showing off one of her few remaining redeeming features.
Mariah’s rumored new sugar-daddy (wait, why does Mariah Carey of all people need one those?), billionaire James Packer, was not seen enjoying the beach day with them. The multi-platinum singer appeared to take a tumble into the water near the sand and was helped by two assistants while keeping a big smile on her face.

Battling with an army of fame-hungry chicks in their 20s trying to get noticed with in their finest stripper dresses, old-schoolers were more than ready for the challenge.
Unfortunately when you’re battling with age at the same time, the red carpet strategy boils down to flaunting your one or two (if you’re lucky) redeeming features so that attention is kept off your least flattering feature (typically the face).
With that said, let’s meet the members of the Over 40 Club limping down the red carpet in their priceless stilettos. First up is 47-year-old Celine Dion, who opted to show off her legs & possibly other things from other camera angles. Mariah, who turned 45 back in March, was rocking some big shades while at the same time motorboating the papz. And finally, we have the seemingly ageless 45-year-old Jennifer Lopez (thanks to the help of L.A. & Miami-based plastic surgeons) killing the red carpet as she has done for the past 35 years!
Singer Mariah Carey and Brett Ratner enjoy a day shopping with a friend while on vacation in St. Barts. Despite rumors that they are dating, both reps claim they are just friends. Yeah, sure, we call bs on that one.
It’s nice to see a happy couple every once in a while. Granted Mariah Carey is a notorious diva, but I feel like Nick Cannon knew when he jumped into the relationship and might be the type of guy who enjoys fanning the raging flames of a diva personality.
For most dudes, diva personalities will get old real quick and you’ll either kill yourself or file for a divorce within a few months, but if diva personalities are one of your big turn-ons, then you can’t go wrong with someone like Mariah Carey. I’ll even go as far as to say that these two probably get it on at least three times a week—maybe even four!!

Question: if a blue haired R & B singer/dancer were to threaten you with a knock-out punch (or two), would you take it seriously?
Mariah Carey would, and has, which is what she tells Barbara Walters in a new interview about the much publicized feud between herself and fellow American Idol judge Nicki Minaj. Carey tells Walters, “I just felt it was the appropriate thing to do. Sitting there on the road with two babies, I’m not going to take any chances.”
Some will recall that Minaj reportedly once said about Mariah Carey, “If I had a gun, I would shoot that bitch.”
Something tells us we won’t be seeing a Mariah Carey duet with Minaj the way we saw with her and Whitney Houston. Yikes.
And, here’s a recent photo of Mariah Carey rocking a red bikini as she spends time in Sydney, Australia:
I would just love to see behind the scenes footage of Mariah Carey & Nicki Minaj acting like divas on the set of “American Idol,” but I just wish producers wouldn’t be so damn racist in their portrayal of Nicki Minaj as the evil Diva and Mariah Carey as the angelic one. Why can’t they both be bitches?!
These were snapped yesterday afternoon in Los Angeles as judges Keith Urban & Mariah Carey were seen making their fashionable arrivals on the set of “American Idol.” Mariah wore a short & shiny gold dress as she catwalked her way inside the studio w/ her man-slave assistant directly behind her. Nicki Minaj, as expected, followed the bitchy diva script & arrived nearly two hours late to the taping while camera crews waited for her.

Similar to CNN Heroes, the award show honors ordinary teens who are Helping And Leading Others, hence the HALO acronym. Hosted by Nick Cannon with performances by Neon Trees and Ne-Yo, look for the show to air on Monday, November 19th, at 8/7c on Nick@Nite.
