Mariah Carey has enhanced her diva status by demanding that the color of one of the world’s New7Wonders of Nature be changed for her arrival.
The “We Belong Together” singer arrived in Cape Town, South Africa on Monday and she has already demanded that the lights that occasionally light up the city’s iconic Table Mountain be lit.
According to Channel24, a source close to the singer also revealed she wants the lights to shine purple in honor of Prince, who died unexpectedly last week, when she performs there on Tuesday.
According to a news report by The Mercury, the lights can be switched on for “particular cultural, historical or traditional significance for the people of Cape Town or South Africa.”
It does not specifically state whether pop stars could make that call or not.
Usually, the application to have the lights switched on takes 20 days, but city officials are working hard on giving Mimi what she wants.
