Mariah Carey: ‘I have always had low self-esteem’




“I just feel like I am a regular human being and I deserve the same respect as anybody else. I have always had low self-esteem, and people do not recognize that. I can’t measure what type of respect I deserve. I really can’t.”

"Growing up different, being biracial, having the whole thing where I did not know if I fit in . . . That is why music became such a big part of my life, because it helped me overcome those issues. Sometimes it is hard to let your guard down.”

“I do think to myself, ‘Did they mean this? Or do they not really mean it?’ And that is with everybody, it is not just with three people or just one.”

“I remember it not being easy getting a record deal. Making demos in the middle of the night, sleeping on the floor in the studio, being broke with no food. My go-to meal was [Newman’s Own] sauce. Me and my friend would split the pasta and sauce for, like, a week. Or it was, like, a bagel and iced tea . . . The guy would give it to me at the deli for free.”
