Mariah Carey, you may be a certified diva and a repeated show-up-late-to-appearances offender, but being late to an award show is a HUGE no-no!
Especially when it screws up everyone else's schedule!
The Emotions songstress was set to unveil her newest album, Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse before the World Music Awards on Tuesday evening in Monte Carlo at 5:30 p.m.
But for some unknown reason, the event was pushed to 9:30 p.m., causing a four-hour delay, making Miley Cyrus, Leona Lewis, and Tinie Tempah adjust their schedules to accommodate the delay.
One senior producer revealed:
"Mariah was meant to be at the Sporting Club at 5:30 p.m. but her album launch was put back to 9:30 p.m.
The whole event has been delayed. It’s not great."
While a spokesman for the World Music Awards admitted they don't know what caused the delay but just chalked it up to Mimi just being Mimi!
"We don't know why Mariah is late, she's just being Mariah."
But regardless, that's no excuse!
Think of the affect your lateness had on others who are involved in the show!
