Sexy Mariah Admits: "I'm A Prude"
Incredibly, men lose interest when they find out, she says
Mariah Carey has delivered a stark warning to her male fans: apparently she's more puritanical than her sexy image might suggest.
And the 35-year-old, famous for her barely-there outfits, admits it can sometimes be a problem for the men in her life. "Men tend to go off me when they find out I'm a prude," she said. "They either turn into my big brother or else they stop talking to me."
But it's not all bad news for the singer, currently worth 173m, who recently equalled Elvis Presley's record of 17 US No.1 singles. "Luckily, I have a lot of male friends who have gone way, way past that whole sexual thing," she added.
