A YOUNG Irishman who snuck into Mariah Carey’s hotel has now become one of the American diva’s latest pals.
So much so that the singer dragged him up on stage at her London show on Wednesday night last week and has signed him up to take part in her E channel reality show.
“I found out what hotel Mariah was staying in in Glasgow on March 15 before her show there,” explains Dubliner Adam Caslin (26).
“I pretended to be staying there when I was stopped and after an hour sitting there I saw her manager, Stella.”
Adam struck up a friendship with Stella, who asked him if he’d be interested in taking part in Mariah’s programme. He then waited for Mariah (45) to come downstairs.
“She came out of the lift and I pounced,” he giggles. “She heard my accent and told me her mother was from Cork and talked fondly of how she played the MTV awards in Dublin in 1999.
Stella told Mariah that Adam was a ‘good guy ' and then he got some pictures with the star.
He was invited back to her dressingroom afterwards.
“It was a thrill as I’m a huge Mariah fan,” explains Adam, who is from Artane and is a singer/songwriter who now lives in the English capital.
“I then went to her show in London a few days later and one of her assistants saw me.”
Mariah invited Adam up onstage to join her towards the end of her cover of I'll Be There.
“It was one of the most amazing moments of my life,” he enthuses.“I was again brought back to her dressingroom afterwards and we hung out for a long time. The whole thing was again filmed for her E show.”
Adams stresses that he does not think the singer – who cancelled her Brussels show last Sunday due to terrorism fears – is a ‘drama queen’.
“For me she was absolutely lovely,” he stresses. “I think she is 100 per cent professional and she wants things to be of a certain standard as she has sold 200 million records.”
