(dailymail.co.uk)- Mariah Carey is notorious for her diva behaviour and moments before appearing on a U.S. TV show, she didn't disappoint.
She called on one of her many assistants to perform the unenviable task of patting down her sweaty upper lip and chin.
Carey, who is one of the world's highest paid female singers, appeared unfazed about being pampered in full view of the audience at the CBS Studios in New York.
Back on track and minus sweat, the 38-year-old singer appeared onstage during the BET '106 & Park' show to promote her latest perfume 'M'.
The singer is continuing work on her next album, a follow-up to her Grammy award winning comeback The Emancipation of Mimi.
She has said: "It's hard for me to sit here and talk about it without sounding like I'm bragging if I'm in love with it, but I'm in love with this album.
"I think that having the success with the last record allowed me to have more freedom. ... and just make records that I like.
"It's kind of a really fun record."
