MARIAH Carey has witnessed extreme diva behavior first hand - and she insists thats not who she is. The Touch My Body hitmaker says she tries her best not be a jerk - but admits her sassiness has been mistaken for rudeness in the past. I try not to be a jerk. I really do, she said. I try to be nice and cordial. Ive seen the real extreme diva behavior and I dont think thats who I am. I think I have mannerisms and that whole thing... But even before I had any type of fame I was like this. Seriously. - SS They [the media] said I wouldnt come into a hotel room unless there were petals on the floor, Mariah added. Im like, do you really think at 3am I give a shit what Im walking on? - SS
