Denise Truscello/WireImageThink you know everything about Mariah Carey? Think again. The singer just revealed 25 surprising facts about herself to Us Weekly, including the bizarre tidbit that she swims in evening gowns and heels.
True to her diva reputation, she admits she hates overhead lighting. “In my opinion, elevator lighting is toxic!” she says. And she despises mascara. “Whenever a makeup artist tries to put it on me, I throw a fit,” she says.
But lest you think she has assistants do everything for her, she says she “can make a mean gluten-free lasagna and an even meaner pecan pie” and that she’s a “very good laundress” when she has to be.
Among Mariah’s other revelations: She does all her own video stunts; she never wears a watch because “time is irrelevant” to her; she arranges flowers in her spare time; she’s addicted to Scandal, How to Get Away with Murder and Veep; and she was a frequent smoker from age 12 to 18, but she quit in one day and never went back.
