Mariah Carey: “I Bathe in Milk”

But if push comes to shove, she's open to mineral water.

Pop diva Mariah Carey has long been the subject of rumors about her diva antics and bizarre requests, but in a new interview, the singer confesses to having one unusual beauty secret.

In an interview with The Guardian, Carey shared: “I bathe in milk. Yes, sometimes I use milk as a beauty treatment.” Upon furthering investigation by the reporter, the 48-year-old singer revealed that the milk must be cold, and if push comes to shove, she’s open to mineral water if clean water isn’t available.

When asked about her other diva demands—requesting 20 white kittens, golden taps and toilet seats, and 100 white doves—Carey says, it’s all a sweet, sweet fantasy, baby.

“Look, 20 cats is an absolute lie. I’m not a cat lady. And I mean, honestly? Golden taps! I could just buy a house for that! I mean, are there myths about other people and their diva-ishness?”

Next month, the iconic chanteuse and best-selling female artist is returning to Las Vegas with an all-new residency, “The Butterfly Returns,” at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace beginning July 5.

And this winter, the Queen of Christmas will embark on a holiday tour overseas. The “All I Want For Christmas Is You” tour will see the singer traveling the U.K. beginning December 1.
