If Mariah Carey's career as a musical superstar doesn't work out for her (yeah, right!), she can always think about a future as a firefighter! The Grammy winner put out flames that erupted at her feet Monday night, as she was about to begin a live concert performance in the Middle East.
"In Egypt getting ready to go on stage and suddenly there was a surge of power and an electrical fire started under my feet! Wtf?!" Twittered Carey.
Though spooked by the potentially dangerous situation, Carey, 40, kept her cool (and her sense of humor!) and took care of business.
"Naturally, my emergency instincts kicked in and I put out the flames w/a towel. Lol (yet true)," she posted a few minutes later. "The funny thing about this is an ol'skool radio station in the other room started playing "aww freak out!"@that exact moment!" Carey recalled, referring to the '70s hit by Chic, "Le Freak."
Luckily, nobody was hurt and Carey went on to perform as scheduled. The singer landed in the country on Sunday, when she posted: "Ugh... traveling since 1901 but I'm in Egypt now overlooking the Nile and I'm very happy to be here!"
Do you think Mariah Carey is a diva? Chime in below!
