Diva in training!

It appears Mariah Carey’s daughter may be following in her famous mother’s footsteps.   In a series of intimate snaps, the Obsessed singer joins her adorable ‘diva in training’ for a stroll down a stone walkway in complementary pink dresses.   Monroe, one, joined Carey as the chart-topper left for a taping of American Idol on Thursday afternoon.


The Touch My Body crooner, 43, showed off a set of toned legs in a salmon mini dress with a fluttered hem, a khaki trench coat and metallic heeled sandals.   Her perfectly-coiffed honey-blonde tresses accented a golden tan.   Monroe matched mum in a pink floral frock worn over a pair of blue jeans and accessorised with trainers, a hair bow and glasses in the same shade of pale bubblegum.


Carey wrote of her photogenic daughter, ‘Ms. Monroe walking me out #divaintraining.’   She added, ‘Hate leaving dembabies, be back soon!!!’   Earlier this year, Carey told Barbara Walters of her daughter, ‘I call her Miss Monroe, and that kind of dictated her personality. She’s a total diva. She’s into jewelry. She’s fascinated by jewelry.’   Noticeably absent from the scene were Carey’s husband of five years, Nick Cannon, and Monroe’s twin brother, Morocco.

Later, the singer posted a photograph of herself reclining against a shelf, captioning it, ‘Off to mix my new single. #music=life (that’s not the song title ha ha).’  Though reportedly in the studio, Carey has not released an album since 2010.   She told Billboardof her latest effort, ‘It’s about making sure I have tons of good music, because at the end of the day, that’s the most important thing.’   ‘Wherever we go with this project, I’ve tried to keep the soul and heart in it, with me obviously as the through-line.’
