"This is what it is: You're seeing behind the scenes of a tour and people don't really show that," Carey explained. "Some people show it, but this is different, because I don't really show that."
During our backstage visit with the international superstar, we learned about the essentials for her dressing room, which featured velvet curtains, soft lighting and wine.
"You want to know my one [essential]?" she said, picking up a stuffed lamb doll. "Here it is, right here -- the lamb."
The stuffed animals are gifts from her fans who call themselves lambs.
As the queen of multi-tasking, Carey is also planning her wedding to fiancé James Packer while touring and shooting her series, but she said if the wedding appears on the series at all, it would only be snippets.
Following her Sweet Sweet Fantasy Tour, which ends May 2 in Johannesburg, South Africa, the 46-year-old singer will get a short break before she resumes her Las Vegas residency at Caesar's Palace on June 7.
