Mariah Carey Likes to Spend Cash

Who doesn’t?  Especially when you have Mariah money!

Mariah Carey, who thinks that recession is something that only affects Nick Cannon’s hairline, recently spent ?750,000 (about $1.2 mil for you Ameri-yes-we-cans) in four days in London.

Mimi was rolling in style, with first-class flights, the entire top floor of The Dorchester, rented Rolls-Royce AND Bentley (it’s like wearing the same dress twice, right?), and most importantly, a huge to-do at Jalouse nightclub to promote her new album, “Memoirs Of An Imperfect Angel.”

I won’t get into the specifics of this cheap little affair (so you won’t choke on your delicious Sunday brunch; this is a recession and eggs aren’t cheap!), but homegirl wanted a diamond-encrusted ice bucket for her VIP area.  Ok, but were there kittens?  I thought not!  Lame!

That’s life in the Butterfly Kingdom, I guess.
