According to Page Six, Mariah Carey was furious when she found out where she’d be seated for the inauguration. A spy said, “Mariah was in the VIP area, where every celebrity, like Jon Bon Jovi, Mary J. Blige, Alicia Keys and Bruce Springsteen, was seated. But somehow she thought she’d be up with the Obama family. When she realized she wasn’t, she bailed.”
What would make Mariah think she would be seated with the Obama family??
Another unhappy celebrity was Sean Combs (Puffy, P. Diddy, etc) who was said to be upset also because he wasn’t invited to perform at official events and he was disappointed that Jay-Z had a bigger presence.
I am always amazed at the size of some of the celebrity’s egos. The inauguration was a historic event that many people would have been happy to attend – no matter where they were sitting. What do you think??
