At iHeartRadio Festival, French Montana Reveals He Likes Vodka for Breakfast

Ahead of his performance Saturday (Sept. 23) at the iHeartRadio Music Festival, French Montana talked to Billboard about topics ranging from the stock market to vodka.

The most-intriguing question: Should we expect an appearance from Mariah Carey during his set? Word on the street was that the diva herself had been spotted at the Las Vegas festival.

But, as to whether she'd be making a cameo for their <a href="articles/columns/hip-hop/7942002/french-montana-unforgettable-remix-mariah-carey">"Unforgettable" acoustic remix</a>, the rapper wasn't ready to spill the beans.

Calling Carey "a legend," he shared, "There might be a little surprise. We can't let it out of the bag just yet."

Earlier in the week, Montana rang the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange with the non-profit organization Global Citizen. Reflecting on his invite, he commented, "It just shows a lot of growth."

Of course, alongside his humanitarian work, Montana is always making time to relax, and deemed his newly released vodka, Ciroc French Vanilla, "the best vodka in the world."

"It was my idea," he shared. "I like liquor you can even have in the morning. You can mix it with your coffee, you can mix it with anything you want -- lemonade, root beer, cream soda."

Sounds like a breakfast of champions to us!
