Mariah Has Low Self Esteem
Mariah Carey admits she suffers from “low self-esteem.” The 47-year-old mega star recently revealed this explaining:
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.
Carey, who is currently touring with Lionel Richie for their All the Hits tour, says that growing up she had a difficult time fitting in.
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.
Before becoming a successful recording artist she says,
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.
