Mariah Carey has developed a side effect from her love of stilettos - she permanently tiptoes around.

The HONEY singer, 35, has been a fan of heels since she was a little child, and her feet have spent years adjusting themselves to her tastes accordingly.

She says, "My feet repel flats - I have permanent high heels on. Without knowing it, I walk on my tippy-toes with no shoes on to the point that people laugh at me.

"But I've done it since I was a five-year-old girl and ruined my babysitter's high heels in the garden. See, I was obsessed with all things feminine - some girls play with baby dolls, but I would only play with Barbie."
