Alleged superdiva Mariah Carey believes that there are too many divas in the music industry and says that she has no time for them.
The international star said: "I don't really follow every new act - they come out constantly. There are so many, its often hard to keep track, and sometimes they're here today and gone tomorrow. "
However, Mariah conceded that there are some acts that she keeps track of adding: "I admire my friends, like Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj - people who seem destined to be doing this for a living with longevity."
Carey defended herself against claims that she is a diva saying: "I'm a strong woman who works extremely hard to be able to have my life the way I want it. So, if that makes me a diva, then okay."
The singer, who is currently pregnant with twins, appeared on UK breakfast show GMTV recently and was accused of unreasonable behaviour by presenter Kate Garraway including having a member of staff walk backwards in front of her at all times in case she fell over.
