Pop star Mariah Carey has packed a phenomenal 40 cases for her latest worldwide travels to ensure she's comfortable in all climates.

The sexy singer - who's currently busy promoting her new album THE EMANCIPATION OF MIMI and denying reports she's a diva - admits her extensive range of bathing suits alone occupy two cases.

The other 38 are filled with garments fit for the various celebrity functions and temperatures she's expecting to encounter.

She says, "Is that a lot? I have been going through different climates and have just come from Aspen (Colorado) where it's tradition to roll around in the snow then get in the jacuzzi.

"So I've got to have my bathing suits, which is two big bags."
