- Mariah Carey spoke of her career to Cosmo magazine.
- Carey speaks of todays stars"They have no idea what I went through as a child to even get to be an 18 year old girl with a record deal. This was before you could just go on Youtube and sing".
- Says her rocky childhood is why she likes Christmas so much. " As a kid I always hoped for a great Christmas and we did not have one. My brother and sister would come back to where ever I was with my mom and they'd be fighting. She pours her heart into the holiday now with her kids and does all that she wanted to do at their age.
-Carey worked as a waitress and got her demo in the hands of Tommy Mottola. They married in 1991 with a 20 year age diffrence.Carey" You might want to picture a child bride. There was a consious effort to keep me this all american, whatever that means, girl". "It was very controlled. There was no freedom for me as a human being. It was almost like I was a prisoner. Mottola has since called the relationship wrong and inappropriate.
-Speaking about the New Years eve performance of 2016" If people think that is the worst thing that has happened to me then first of all , they haven't studied my career well enough". After what I have been throgh who really gives a s**t if my moniter broke , fell off. These things happen and it's over. My true fans stick with me and the rest of the people will get over it".
- Carey's thoughts on: Writing. Carey" A lot of artists say they write but they don't really write. No offense to anybody. That's just what I've seen".
-On style: A lot of the girls are just nude in front of everbody. No offense to them".
-On her apparent preference for younger men." I haven't had that many, but there has been a variety pack. I've only been with five people in my life, so I'm kind of a prude, honestly compared to most others in the field".
- On music videos" They don't do $2 million videos anymore. Anybody can make a video now".
-Carey on her lips" I look horrible with a red lip. I probably shoud have gotten my lips done but it's to late".
