Mariah Carey

The world doesn’t have many truly great divas — and even fewer American divas. Mariah Carey is one such superstar, known for her lavish lifestyle and over the top personality as much as for her incredible singing voice. Carey has been a star for well over two decades and is showing no sign of going anywhere. With a passionate fan base and scores of critical accolades and awards, Carey is truly an American icon. She has also made headlines many times over for her diva demands, including having staff members on hand tasked to do truly ridiculous things. 

Carey was born in New York and named after a famous Broadway musical. She was an excellent student and showed talent in acting, music, and the arts.

As a young woman, Carey was determined to make her own way in the world and did a in beauty school. She also made money singing at occasional gigs, and by the late eighties, she had made some friends in the music industry.

In 1988, Carey befriended Tommy Mottola, the head of Columbia Records. He helped her rise to fame in the music industry by securing her a record deal and getting her in touch with industry professionals.

Carey’s star quickly rose, and critics and fans alike raved about her pitch and ability to hit any note. Eventually, Carey cut ties with Mottola — but by that point, she was a star, and was making headlines all on her own.

Carey has become a symbol for women’s empowerment and is one of the best-selling musical artists of all time. These days, Carey is a mother as well, although she always finds time for projects that matter to her. 

Mariah Carey’s diva lifestyle

Mariah Carey is known for her ability to hit all the right notes. She is also a diva of extraordinary proportions and stories about her excess have become legendary. Notoriously, Carey only wants to be filmed at certain angles, and even during interviews, she has reportedly asked producers to rearrange the cameras so that she can only be captured in the best light.

Many of Carey’s diva moments have been captured on film, such as the memorable occasions when she has had her backup dancers carry her onstage in an extravagant litter, and the other, less outlandish times when she has appeared to be slightly tipsy in interviews or at awards shows. She also isn’t averse to telling off rude or pushy reporters and even telling them to find new, more interesting questions to ask her. 

Mariah Carey’s special tour requests

Mariah Carey has become notorious for her feuds with others in the music industry, including Jennifer . While Carey will rarely discuss anything negative with the press or with her fans, many of her quirks have become widely publicized over the years — including her habit of spending money on rather ridiculous things. During one tour, Carey’s demands reached epic proportions. Reportedly, the star required bendable straws backstage (all the better to sip her costly champagne with), and actually demanded that a new staff member be hired for the express purpose of throwing away her old chewing gum.

There’s no word on what the staff member was paid, but one thing’s for sure — Carey can undoubtedly afford anything that she wants. Carey rarely tours these days, but when she does, it seems as though she wants to travel in style, and in the manner to which she is accustomed.

Bharat Goel on Recreating Songs: It Is Always a Challenge, When the Old Track Is So Loved




Composer Bharat Goel says recreating an old hit is always a challenge because you not only need to do justice to the production of the song, but also the composition and its creative part. Goel has recreated the old Nadeem-Shravan hit “Ek bewafaa”, originally sung by Sonu Nigam in the 2005 Akshay Kumar- Kapoor film Bewafaa. Pianist, Composer & Acclaimed Recording Artist Keyvan Hardani Turns Attention to Tchaikovsky.



“The recreation of an iconic song is always a challenge, because you not only need to do justice with the production, but also the composition and creative part. It has to seamlessly flow into the melody,” Goel said. He added: “You need to live up to the reputation of the original track, especially when the old track is so loved. So, that was a big challenge, but we tried our best and we’re quite pleased with what we’ve managed to achieve.” Arijit Singh to Make His Debut as a Music Composer with Sanya Malhotra’s Film Pagglait.

The song has been arranged, co-produced and programmed by Firoz Khan. The song was composed, produced, written and recorded during lockdown. Goel says managing things over zoom and phone calls was tough. “Since we were all likeminded people, we managed easily. Kaushal Kishore’s writing, Sameer’s voice and my composition blended well and we managed to overcome that challenge. This is the first time I worked with Sameer, and we recorded in the studio,” says Goel.



He added that their version of “Ek bewafaa” is emotional, with a sad and betrayal vibe. “The melody seamlessly flows into the iconic tune that people are already familiar with. That’s what makes it stand out,” he says. Lyrics are an integral part of a song and Bharat feels Kaushal has done justice to the song’s vibe. “Kaushal has done a phenomenal of writing the track. It’s an intense song and he has written very deep and meaningful words,” he says.
