Hong Kong tells Mariah to stick it

Mariah Carey's Hong Kong concert has been canceled after she made a string of "last minute diva demands." Noooo.

Promoters in the Chinese territory are furious at Carey's "unreasonable" behavior, but refused to divulge the exact nature of her requests. However, they insisted "sluggish" ticket sales also accounted for the cancellation.

Concerts Asia says, "As promoters of the Mariah Carey Hong Kong concert, we have decided to cancel the event effective immediately due to both the poor response of public ticket sales and also due to specific last-minute demands which we find wholly unreasonable and not with the best interests of Hong Kong, us and also the fans."

The company claims only 4,000 tickets were sold.
