Ah, Mariah Carey. Would the world know what the definition of "diva" was without her? Definitely not. Luckily for humans everywhere, the legendary singer stays true to her reputation, ensuring that her signature "diva" antics are perpetually on display. Whether it is filming in bed, wearing coordinating leather and fur ensembles with rapper Busta Rhymes, or commanding $2 million fees to sing "Auld Lang Syne," Carey knows how to hustle her diva status hard.
Taking a well-deserved break from the bleak American air and participating in annual "celebrities on vacation" month, Carey is currently vacationing on some unspecified tropical and gloriously hot island. From her hashtags #pondeislands and #pondebeach, it's most likely Jamaica or somewhere in the Caribbean. What better way to commemorate the diva she is and the vacation she is on than with a photoshoot? After all, with all these new kids posting pictures, it's time for Mariah to show them how it's done.
