Mariah Carey's home robbed of $50,000 of jewellery and handbagsMariah Carey’s house has been burgled (Picture: Paul Morigi/WireImage)

Mariah Carey has been robbed of $50,000 (£38,000) worth of accessories.
The ‘Hero’ hitmaker’s Los Angeles home was targeted by burglars at around 3am on Thursday and though they didn’t touch her valuable jewellery collection, they made off with expensive bags and sunglasses.

Sources told TMZ the crooks seemingly got in through a window or door on an upper floor, as a ladder was found in the back yard.

No one was home at the time of the robbery as Mariah – who has six-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe with ex-husband Nick Cannon – is currently in New York.
The burglars tripped a silent alarm, but the 47-year-old singer’s security team didn’t discover the break-in until around 6 or 7am.

Mariah has joined a long list of stars whose Los Angeles homes have been burgled in recent months, with the likes of Jason Derulo, Scott Disick, Kendall Jenner, Alanis Morissette, David Spade and Emmy Rossum previously targeted.

Despite the high value, it is believed only around 10 items were stolen from Mariah, but it is unclear what they were.
The We Belong Together hitmaker recently showed off a bright pink Birkin bag, which was given to her by boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Mariah revealed the retired sports star gave her some very specific instructions about the gift, too.
‘”He told me every time someone asks, make sure they know it’s a gift from Floyd,’ she said.
And giving her fans a tour of her home in a recent video for Vogue magazine, she also revealed her most treasured possession used to belong to Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe.

She explained: ‘I have Marilyn’s white piano upstairs in my living room and it’s from when she was a child and it’s my prized possession.
‘I love the glamour. There’s just something about that specific era where it’s, like, magical.’

Mavin Queen Tiwa Savage, revels some information about her to Vanguard Newspaper that her most embarrassing moment in her life is when a Banky W saw her unclothedness.

Speaking with Vanguard, the pop singer explained how Banky W drew her attention to a certain part of her body that was exposed. She said,

”My dress for my stage performance at 2face’s album launch arrived very late. Literally, it came in 5 minutes before I was supposed to mount the stage.

“I didn’t have time to try it on before my performance. The MC announced: ‘Next on stage is rising star, Tiwa Savage.’ So I quickly put it on.

As soon as I was walking up stage, the zip ripped at the back and I didn’t even realise. “Banky saw it and was like ‘Oh my God! Your whole back is opened.

“I was really embarrassed; just like he saw me Unclad” Tiwa said, adding that they tried to pin her up but all the while the band and everybody was on stage.

The model in the controversial "racist" advert for Dove says it was actually meant to represent diversity.

Lola Ogunyemi has defended the Facebook ad which caused an internet backlash after it appeared to show her turning white after using the body wash.
She told Newsbeat she was excited to be part of the campaign as it was "supposed to be about all skin types deserving gentleness".
She says the ad was taken out of context but gets why people were upset.

The ad posted on Facebook showed Lola pulling her t-shirt off to reveal a white woman underneath, followed by her doing the same to reveal an Asian woman.

It was part of a longer ad which featured five women of different ethnicities.

Lola says she was excited to be the "black face in the campaign".
"I wanted to get involved because as a black woman, my race and colour in beauty and media tends not to be represented.

"Sometimes, if my skin tone is represented, it usually about skin lightening products so I was excited to be the black face in this campaign.

"I knew the concept and understood what they were trying to do creatively. I wasn't aware of the order of which we would appear, but we were all excited about it," says Lola.

A screenshot of the ad went viral which featured Lola and the white model.
Several people took to twitter to criticise the beauty brand.

"The social ad wasn't a fair representation of the full thing," Lola says.

But she admits Dove has previously faced backlash about the way they've dealt with race in its ads.
"While I think Dove has been celebrated and congratulated about campaigns in the past, they've also faced significant backlash about the way they've handled race."

Lola, who was born in London and raised in Atlanta in the US, says she was overwhelmed by all the comments online about the ad.

"To wake up one morning to all of these messages, was unbelievable. I think the main issue is the outrage being sparked by screenshots that were posted.

"It wasn't even the full ad that people had issue with. Because of this, a different narrative has been presented.

"Once Dove pulled the ad, it left no room for the public to get the full story."
Lola adds: "I'm not necessarily defending Dove wholeheartedly but I would say Dove had good intentions.

"Given the backlash they've faced in the past, you can see why people are upset. The fact that this could have happened should have been discussed."
