Carey Hangs Up After Dj's Sales Blunder
R+B superstar Mariah Carey has left a British radio DJ red-faced - after hanging up during a telephone interview because he grossly underestimated her sales figures. Radio One DJ Reggie Yates was quizzing the star for Sunday's (30Mar08) Chart Show, when he inadvertently claimed she had sold 80 million albums - and the singer was far from impressed. After almost four minutes of Carey happily chatting and joking with the presenter, Yates launched into another question, saying: "You've sold over 80 million albums worldwide..." But before he could finish, the We Belong Together hitmaker interrupted him and asked, "Is that the right quote?" - then hung up the phone. Carey's worldwide sales are closer to the 160 million mark.
