When Mariah Carey wants something, the 47-year-old singer gets it.
It’s no secret that Carey is a certified diva. For instance, there was that time she said she “didn’t know Jennifer Lopez:
And the time she said it again:
And the time she threw shade at everyone she “doesn’t know:
There was also the time her ex-husband, Nick Cannon, revealed her biggest diva moment ever: She made them listen to her own music while making love.
She also made sure her own music was playing while her twins were born — specifically, the song “Fantasy.”
And, for good measure, it was reported that she stormed out of President Barack Obama’s inauguration ceremony after finding out she wasn’t seated at the same table as the president and first lady.
But most recently, the singer has been getting flak for her on-stage antics. First, she disappointed millions when she just barely performed for ABC’s “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest.”
Then, she garnered a ton of criticism for her lacking dance moves:
And on Tuesday, she came under fire again for her whistling stunt during one of her shows.

Clearly, things haven’t really been going her way as of late.
And yesterday, her string of less-than-ideal outcomes continued in full force. During a performance at the legendary Hollywood Bowl, Carey gifted the audience with a surprise cameo from her twins, Monroe and Moroccan.
While singing the well-known “Always Be My Baby,” Carey informed the audience that her kids had just learned the catchy tune.
But when she tried to wrangle the tots to sing along with her into the microphone, well, they weren’t that into it.
Her 6-year-olds had their arms crossed, wouldn’t show themselves to the audience, and just barely let their mother catch a hold of their arms.
Eventually, Monroe and sang a few precious lines to Carey’s fans while her brother hid behind their celebrity mother.
In a world where celebrity divas like Carey seemingly get everything they want, the display of universal parenting struggles is the perfect dose of reality.
