Mariah Carey reveals that she suffers from low self-esteem.
In an interview with Page Six, Mariah Carey reveals that she always had low self-esteem and how her road to stardom was not easy.
She tells Page Six,
“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.”
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.
On her road to success:
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.”
