It's really easy to assume that just because they're rich and dense, people like Mariah Carey have no ability to feel empathy for those suffering hard times. We're sure, then, the stories that she repeatedly sent food back while backstage at Live 8 because it was made with parmesan from a jar can't have an iota of truth in them, can they? Because what would that make her look like, at a gig designed to focus people's minds on the plight of those without anything - food, shelter, hope - sending back plate after plate of food untouched because it hadn't had enough cash spent on it? God, that would make her seem terrible, wouldn't it? And callous. And heartless. And a stinking hypocrite who was probably only there to further her own career.
