Divas, not diamonds, are forever.
She told Entertainment Tonight, “I’m still always going to be a diva in certain ways and I don’t mean that in the bad sense of the word. I just mean, if there’s a makeup artist there and they don’t mind touching me up while I’m directing…”
“I don’t think either one of us thought, ‘Here we are, making a debut,’ he’s not that guy,” she commented. “It was a lot for him. … I just automatically pose. I can’t help it!”
Nor did she have to give him any posing tips, which is a good thing because it’d ruin her own red carpet moments and best angles otherwise. “If I did that, I would have had to coach him instead of posing,” she adeed, “then I’d look bad in pictures.”
Mariah’s latest project, as star and director of A Christmas Melody, is like old hat for her. “I’ve been directing so much of my own work for a really long time,” she explained. “A lot of music videos that I didn’t take credit for.” ET further notes that Carey got her first directing credit for her 1995 “Fantasy” music video.
Anyways, a movie titled A Christmas Melody seems to be a perfect fit for Mariah; after all, her hit Christmas album Merry Christmas is basically a staple for the season’s soundtrack.
A Christmas Melody premieres on December 19 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Hallmark Channel.
