Mariah Carey Writes About the Pressure and the Pain Endured Over the Years
Mariah Carey describes how she has overcome multiple traumas. In Carey’s memoir “The Meaning of Mariah,” the solo artist with more hits than Elvis Presley, speaks about her private and painful past.
In a recent interview with Oprah, Carey speaks about tremendous pressure. The pressure to help provide for her family, and having to constantly work. An excerpt from the memoir was read to describe the weight on her shoulders in relation to her mother, “She had no concept of the humiliation I was suffering from the ravenous media monster that was feeding off of me… My mother never could acknowledge my fear. In fact, she often triggered it.”
Carey also opens up in the memoir about her ex-husband Tommy Mottola. She speaks about the control he had over her life. The singer confessed about a time when she and Da Brat left her home, and she was urged to get back on the grounds in order to not cause more of a situation with Mottola. She also talks about her other relationships including the marriage to Nick Cannon.
