Mariah Carey doesn’t see “the point” in giving interviews any longer now she’s published her autobiography.
The “Fantasy” hitmaker insisted she can’t see “the point” in speaking with media outlets to market her work any longer as she’s given the complete story of her life in her autobiography, “The Meaning of Mariah Carey”, so people can simply ask the book if they need any questions on her.
She told The Guardian newspaper: “No offence to doing interviews, but what would be the point? I can’t articulate it better than I have already got [in the book]. From now on, I’m like, ‘Please ask page 29,’ you recognize what I mean?”
And asked a few passage within the book during which she documents her 2001 breakdown, she said: “Those are my words, so please ask page 29.”
Mariah Carey has claimed her older sister drugged her and tried to “sell her out” to a pimp when she was just 12 years old.
The 50-year-old singer – who has twins Moroccan and Monroe, nine, with ex-husband Nick Cannon – insisted she “deserves” to be high-maintenance now because she had to figure so hard to urge to where she is today.
She said: “You know what? I don’t give a s***. Im f****** am high-maintenance because I need to be at now .
“That may sound arrogant, but I hope you frame it within the context of coming from nothing.
“If I can’t be high-maintenance after working my a** off my entire life, oh, I’m sorry – I didn’t realise we all had to be low-maintenance. Hell, no! i used to be always high-maintenance, it’s just I didn’t have anyone to try to to the upkeep once I was growing up!”
Despite the very fact she’s developed a reputation as a diva over the years, Mariah doesn’t care.
Asked if the tag bothers her, she laughed: “No! Who the f***cares?
“Honestly! ‘Oh my God, they’re calling me a diva – i feel I’m getting to cry!’
“You think within the grand scheme of things in my life that basically matters to me, being called a diva? i’m , b******, that’s right!”
