Mariah Carey admits she finds inspiration in the strangest places - her hit song Hero was written in the bathroom.
The superstar singer was using the toilet during a break from recording when the idea for the track came to her.
And she confesses she even gets up in the early hours of the morning to write songs - because she dreams up tunes in her sleep.
Carey tells U.K. TV show This Morning, "Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night and have an idea and have to get up and record it straight away before I forget it.
"Or with Hero, I was in the studio and someone was telling me about this film Hero with Dustin Hoffman in it. I took a walk to the loo and when I came back I had this idea for a song, and that was what then became Hero."

Nothing but a lie is this article what Carey said about this song! Maybe she wrote the Music on the loo, but not the lyrics! Some People sometimes know REAL FACTS better then what the Press was told by celebs! She wrote the Lyrics of Hero in the Office of Tommy Mottola, nowhere else!
