Mariah Carey isn't just the "Queen of Christmas," she's also one of the world's biggest selling musicians, one of the most enduring icons from the '90s, and also one of the richest singers worldwide, with an estimated net worth of over $350 million, according to

However, the singer has also battled a "diva" reputation over the past few years, but clapped back at those claims with the most hilarious and prescient clip, to the tune of her 2009 hit "Obsessed."

The 54-year-old singer-songwriter took to her Instagram page to share a video that captured what the perception would be of her daily life, combining the luxe with the camp.

"Sunday Camp!" she captioned her clip, in which she's seen working out in a gold sequined gown with heels, sleeping with a glam team on standby, reading her own book, and indulging her puppies in massages (from professionals, no less) after they poop.

"I'm Mariah Carey…" she said before each outrageous scenario, leaving fans in stitches with her take on the "luxurious diva life" that also provided a glimpse into her massive home.

"Girrrrlllll, I LOVE this!" Tyra Banks commented, with Lauren Sánchez adding: "Wait I'm coming over." A fan also wrote: "Some people still won't get it. But the reality is that few celebrities have such a great sense of humor like you do!"
