Mariah Carey arrived four hours late to an event on Tuesday night. The singer is currently promoting her 14th solo album Me. I Am Mariah. The Elusive Chanteuse. A launch party was due to take place ahead of the World Music Awards in Monaco on Tuesday evening, but when it failed to kick off on time it had a knock-on effect on the whole night. ‘Mariah was meant to be at the venue the Monte Carlo Sporting Club at 5.30pm but her album launch was put back to 9.30pm,’ a source told British newspaper The Mirror. ‘The whole event has been delayed. It’s not great.’ The mishap meant big name stars such as Miley Cyrus and Leona Lewis had to rearrange their schedules at short notice.
