Mariah CareyPopstar Mariah Carey is known for her diva demands but she outdid herself by asking to be surrounded by 20 white kittens and 100 white doves for a brief appearance at a mall.

The Hero hitmaker's hosts were rescued when the demands were turned down by UK's health and safety officials, reported Daily Mail online.

The 39-year-old singer wanted confetti shaped like butterflies, her favourite insect, to shower over her at the end of her appearance at the Westfield complex in West London.

The list known in showbusiness circles as a 'rider', included being driven by Rolls Royce along a pink carpet right to the pink podium where she is to wave a wand to turn on the lights.

A source revealed the model of car had to be changed six times before she was finally happy.

"We did manage to source the doves that we were going to release into the sky, but the kittens proved terribly difficult," said the source.

Earlier this month, the singer told of her passion for animals and how far she will go to keep them in the luxury that she is accustomed to.

She told Hello! magazine that she had hired extra minders for her dogs while shooting for a recent commercial where she starred with them.

"I had my team with me but the pups had a mini-entourage of their own, of course! And why wouldn't they."
