Mariah Carey has a personal assistant who is solely responsible for her breast tape.
The Hero singer attended the VH1 Save the Music Foundation 10th Anniversary Gala in New York on Thursday night (20.09.07) with an entourage of nine people, including a helper to ensure her ample boobs remain covered up at all times.
A source told the New York Daily News: "One assistant was in charge of dishing out breast tape, another wore a belt with brushes and hair spray and another one had portable heated rollers. The bathroom was shut down for 10 minutes for Mariah to be primped and preened.
"She also had several massive bodyguards surrounding her all night.
"As she made her way around the party her entourage marched in front, holding back other guests who included John Mayer and Jon Bon Jovi and shouted, 'Get out of the way! Mariah's coming!'"
The 38-year-old singer showed off her new svelte figure in a tight purple gown at the party, which she revealed was down to a diet of bland soups and water aerobics.
Mariah said: "My secret is bleak diets, basically soups and fish prepared really blandly.
"I have a wonderful trainer whose name is Patricia, she lives in St. Barts, poor girl. People say to me, 'Only you would fly someone from St. Barts in the Caribbean to New York to work out.' We do water aerobics mostly.
"I don't feel like you have to be a size zero. We should all just embrace who we are physically. I'm not supposed to be a stick figure girl. It's just not me."
