Mariah Carey Does a Sexy Photo Shoot with 'Paper'

Mariah Carey is baring her body on the cover of Paper magazine’s new issue.

Here’s what the superstar had to share with the mag:

On deciding to have a Vegas residency: “Well, I just thought it would be something in between albums, because now I’m working on a new album and new singles, and I just thought it was a great place to be able to be. Because I have twins [Moroccan and Monroe], who just turned six…to have them be in one place for a period of time rather than, like, touring for all that time [is great]. They go with me.”

On diva moments: “Actually, I have had diva moments, and then people can’t handle it. I guess it’s a little intense, because I come from a true diva: My mother is an opera singer. And that’s a real diva, you know — Juilliard diva. And so other people that are like, ‘I’m a diva,’ it’s like, ‘Honey, you don’t know what a diva is, you didn’t grow up with my mom.’ [Laughs] And I mean it as a compliment, or I wouldn’t be the person I am without experiencing that. And so when people hear me say, like, ‘Dahling da da da da’ and talk that way, it’s kinda like I’m channeling my mother. Not that she says ‘dahling’ all the time, but like that voice is… it’s like I inadvertently do it, and I don’t do it to be disrespectful, I just do it and it just happens and it’s like, [in diva voice] ‘I don’t even know why.’”
