Mariah Carey: I swim in evening gowns

Mariah Carey’s favourite place is her bathtub.

The We Belong Together singer is known for her constantly glamorous attire and perfectly coiffed locks. And the star admits she doesn’t dress down at any time - even when she fancies a dip.

“I swim in evening gowns and heels,” she told Us Weekly, before adding that anything involving water is her favourite activity. “The bathtub is my place of serenity. Any tub, really — bathtub, hot tub or whatever. As long as there is water.”

One thing the mother-of-two won’t have to worry about when taking a dip is mascara running down her face. That’s because she despises the cosmetic and refuses to wear it on her lashes.

“I hate mascara. I never wear it,” she revealed. “Whenever a makeup artist tries to put it on me, I throw a fit.”

Mariah has never been afraid of embracing her diva persona, and added to the outlet that she has an “extreme aversion” to overhead lighting and describes elevator lighting as “toxic”.

While the Hero singer is immaculate now, she revealed to the outlet that she hasn’t always got it right. As a teen, she tried to experiment with different hair colours without much success.

“I dyed my hair orange by accident in the seventh grade. It was a major disaster!” she said. “I started beauty school in the 11th grade, and a year later I was officially a beauty school dropout.”

Now Mariah leaves it to the professionals to make her look amazing, and instead, spends any free time enjoying some relaxing past times instead.

“I arrange flowers in my spare time. Well, when I have spare time, that is,” she laughed. “I can make a mean gluten-free lasagna and an even meaner pecan pie.”
