Hey kids, make sure you get good grades in school, work hard, and one day you just may grow up to be...Mariah Carey's personal umbrella holder!
Yup, that apparently is a real job title--or, at least, a real job anyway--based on this snap of Carey in full diva mode at a Baton Rouge American Idol photo shoot Thursday. The superstar AI judge was flanked by security, including one guy whose sole chore appeared to be blocking the 85-degree afternoon sun from damaging his boss's flawless complexion.
Well, hey, if anything, we're sure this gentleman is well-paid for his work--if probably not challenged too much by it.
Carey reportedly beefed up her security after a blowout catfight with fellow AI judge Nicki Minaj earlier in the week. Her Minajesty allegedly threatened violence against Carey--however, all seemed to have gone peacefully yesterday at the shoot. At any rate, if another fight had emerged between the two alpha-female judges, at least they'd be able to duke it out in a nice shady place.
