Mariah Carey is adamant that she doesn't have her own personal drink holder.
Not long ago rumours were flying thick and fast that the self-confessed pop diva employed a poor lackey to do nothing else but feed her drinks.
Not true says Mariah. "That is so, ugh...," said Mariah in response to the story. "I was at a record signing and I signed about 3,000 records. Most artists will go for maybe half an hour, then they leave everybody standing there. I always feel guilty doing that, so I stay for a long time."
"I'm signing with one hand and shaking somebody else's hand, so someone tapped me to take a sip of water, and then they took a picture. But believe me, I'd much rather hold my own glass! I can't even get a proper assistant, how am I gonna get a cup-holder?"
