The term diva has followed pop icon Mariah Carey for twenty years. Even her hubby Nick Cannon lovingly called his wife the four letter word on Anderson Live last week when discussing the pair’s various parenting styles of twins Moroccan and Monroe.
Apparently the American Idol judge is taking pampering “‘Dem Babies” to a whole new level. We’ve all heard the stories of the Cannon babies donning designer baby shoes, sleeping in imported Italian crib linens and bathing in bubble baths filled only with bottled water. The print edition of Star Magazine is now reporting that Mimi spends $1900 for 16-ounce jars of La Mer moisturizer for Roc and Roe’s bottoms as diaper cream.
For those not in the know, La Mer is a very pricey facial moisturizer that usually sells at $150 an ounce. Sources close to Carey say, “Nothing is too good for Mariah’s babies. She probably spends more than $6000 a month on the lotion alone so the kids don’t have diaper rash.”
But despite her lavish lifestyle Carey is not a wasteful diva. She reportedly uses whatever is leftover of the cream on her own face.
You’ve got to love Mimi. She lives in her own pampered world and she’s apparently loving it. Hey, you might too if you had Mariah’s style of pop princess loot to spend.
