Singer-songwriter Mariah Carey has the most expensive body parts as she had her legs and vocal cords insured for a whooping $70 million, according to reports.
TMZ reported that the 46-year old singer who made hits such as “Heartbreaker,” and “One Sweet Day” has just insured her hamstring and vocal chords for $35 million each. She is currently on tour and plans to extend it to South America.
The Daily Mail reported that Mariah’s legs was judged as “Leg’s of a Goddess” by Gillette in 2006 as she fronted their campaigns and considered as the most perfect legs in America while her vocal cords is one of a kind as she can reach a span of five octaves.
In 1998, the popular singer explained that her ability to hit many notes was the result of nodules on her vocal cords, which usually decreases a singer’s range.
“’A lot of people couldn’t sing through the nodules the way I do. I’ve learned to sing through my vocal cords. It’s a certain part of the cord that not many people use – the very top,” Carey said.
The total monthly premium is said to be highly expensive, though no details have been revealed, but it was said that it was all worth it. Aside from the extended concert tour, Mariah is said to be preparing also for her wedding to Australian billionaire James Packer.
A close friend to Mariah stated that singer desperately wants to lose 20 lbs. and is on strict protein diet. In detail the friend stated that Mariah never gets up before 11 a.m. then she skips breakfast, but has a smoothie or protein shake by noon.
“Mariah is only eating four ounces of grilled chicken, lean beef or one of her favorites, broiled Chilean Sea Bass or grilled shrimp with grilled asparagus,” Mariah’s friend explained.
Now aside from having insured her body’s assets, it’s no wonder that one day Mariah will have her whole body insured as she keeps on entertaining her fans.
