The mother-of-two is no rookie when it comes to finding flattering lighting and reveals one of her unique life mantras as she glides into a late-night dance rehearsal. “I have a rule, which states that I will not be seen in fluorescent lighting without sunglasses.

Some people need white noise, others prefer the soothing sounds of the ocean. But for Mariah, it’s a more modern luxury that settles her.

“The Apple TV is the most important thing for Ms MC. If she can’t have the Apple TV playing while she’s sleeping then she can’t sleep. If she can’t sleep, she can’t perform. If she can’t perform, there’s no show. If it’s not there everything else falls apart,” her panicked assistant Molly explains as she tries to figure out the hotel’s complex tech system.
