There are few songbirds who live up to their diva reps like Mariah Carey. Carey does what she wants, when she wants — a fact ex-husband Nick Cannon recently confirmed when he spilled the tea on her biggest high-maintenance moment of all (she made him play her hit “Fantasy” in their delivery room while their twins were being born).

She gave us all another reminder that she’s no plebe this week when the mother of two went bowling wearing… well, not bowling shoes.

For a recent family outing with “’dem babies,” Carey opted for a pair of five-inch peep-toe heels, because of course she did. We’re not even sure how the bowling alley allowed it, since those clownish shoes are usually mandatory for safety reasons, but leave it to the elusive chanteuse to skirt the rules.

Carey also posted a pic with her two younguns, captioning it, “Having fun with #DemBabiesin New York City!!!” and hashtagging it #DontBreakYourNailsWhileBowling. But even if she had cracked a nail, we’re confident Mimi has a manicurist on speed dial who makes house calls ;)

What’s the weirdest place you’ve ever worn stilettos? Tells us over @BritandCo.
