August 15, 2008: "Mariah Carey Needs Assistants To Dry Herself Off After Swimming"
Mariah Carey has been photographed being dried off by two assistants after she swam in the Mediterranean Sea.
The "Touch My Body" singer, who has a reputation for being a diva, enjoyed a peaceful swim on her second honeymoon with husband Nick Cannon off the island of Capri.
As she emerged from the water, Mariah was quickly met by two assistants bearing towels, who then proceeded to ensure she was completely dry by rubbing her all over.
A source said: "Mariah looked in absolute heaven as she was dried off. She just held out her arms to her side and let the assistants get rid of any water remaining on her body."
Mariah, 38, has previously revealed she likes being called a diva because it means she is successful.
She said: "They throw that word around like it's a Frisbee! I grew up hearing it, because my mother is an opera singer. The actual definition is 'a talented female singer'. Definition two is 'a difficult woman who is successful,' I believe. So I take it as a compliment."
Despite her reputation, Mariah insists she doesn't make enough demands.
The 38-year-old star said: "You know what? I guess I am a diva in many ways! When it comes to certain things, yes, I can be difficult and a little bit rigid about what I want. Am I demanding? I don't think I'm demanding enough."

Mariah has been known to have 11 bodyguards surround her restaurant table so diners can't see her eat.
When signing autographs this week at Selfridges department store, Mariah demanded a �50,000 antique table, covered with silk cloth, to scribble upon, flown in from New York. She sat on a �1,000 throne and was surrounded by roses and butterflies.
She insisted on having a �10,000 gym installed next to her penthouse suite at Claridge's. It was also rumoured she was bringing 100 pairs of shoes with her on the trip.
She booked every penthouse in Claridge's hotel, so she can have ultimate privacy.
When accepting her role in the upcoming film Tennessee, an independent, low-budget production, Mariah was told budgetary constraints meant she would have to travel to the location on an economy-class air ticket, rather than her usual first class or private jet.
Mariah agreed ... then bought every single economy seat on her flight, and travelled alone in the cabin.
She keeps 20 humidifiers around her bed. She likes being carried around, because wearing high heels all the time hurts her feet. She insists her dogs travel by private plane or private car only .
she herself admits: "I guess I am a diva in many ways. I can be difficult and a little bit rigid about what I want." Here's Mariah signing autographs in London last night.

"For me, in my mind, the accomplishment is just that much sweeter," she explained. "In terms of my ethnicity, always feeling like an outsider, always feeling different ... for me it's about saying, 'Thank you Lord, for giving me the faith to believe in myself when other people had written me off'."

Mariah Carey is an American pop and R&B singer, songwriter, record producer, music video director and actress. She debuted in 1990 under the guidance of Columbia Records executive Tommy Mottola and became the first recording act to have its first five singles top the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart. Following her marriage to Mottola in 1993, a series of hit records established her position as Columbia's highest-selling act. According to Billboard magazine, she was the most successful artist of the 1990s in the United States.
Carey took much more control over her image and music following her separation from Mottola in 1997, and she introduced elements of hip hop into her album material. Her popularity was in decline when she left Columbia in 2001, and she was dropped by Virgin Records the following year after a highly publicized physical and emotional breakdown and the poor reception of Glitter, her film and soundtrack project. In 2002 Carey signed with Island Records, and after an unsuccessful period, she returned to the forefront of pop music in 2005.
In 2000 the World Music Awards named Carey the best-selling female artist of all time, and she has recorded the most U.S. number-one singles for a female solo artist (seventeen). In addition to her commercial accomplishments, she is well-known for her Dramatic Coloratura Soprano, melismatic singing voice, vocal range, power and use of the whistle register. However, some critics have said that Carey's efforts to showcase her vocal talents have been at the expense of communicating true emotion through song.
She is in 2nd place among all artists with the most No. 1s in music history, tying Elvis Presley's in second place with a total of 17 #1 hits, with The Beatles remaining in first place with 20.
