Singer Mariah Carey has a reputation as a diva and she gave this credence when she performed in Leeds on Thursday evening.
The 46 year-old best-selling artist, was booed by concert-go ers after she arrived 45 minutes late for her performance at the city’s First Direct Arena.
The mother of two was supposedly billed to be on stage at 20.45 for the latest installment of her Sweet Sweet Fantasy show – but instead arrived at 21.30.
Not surprisingly, her fans were not pleased with her lateness and took to twitter to vent their frustrations.
One user, Charlotte White, wrote: ‘Sat in Leeds First Direct. Where are you, Mariah?’, while a second posted: ‘Excuse me Mariah Carey, but there are 10,000 people in Leeds waiting for you. Care to join us? #late’.
A few moments later she added ‘Lots of boos as we wait for Mariah at the FD Arena. 45 minutes late and counting. Not worth £70!’.
Another attendee posted a sarcastic tweet which said: ‘Don’t worry, it’s not like I have to be up tomorrow. Oh wait…’
Another added to the mix by saying: ‘Absolute joke how [she] was 40 min late in Leeds tonight 🙁 Saw a grand total of 40 mins of the show.’
Fortunately, Mariah had some loyal fans who had her back.
One user, Michael from Melbourne, hit back at critics saying: ‘Who’s complaining that Mariah is late? Hush. Mariah transcends time, dahhhling, you can’t hold her to regular standards.’
Another added: ‘Despite the fact she was late, Mariah Carey was AMAZING tonight!!’.
