Description

It took me a lifetime to have the courage and the clarity to write my memoir. I want to tell the story of the moments - the ups and downs, the triumphs and traumas, the debacles and the dreams - that contributed to the person I am today. Though there have been countless stories about me throughout my career and very public personal life, it’s been impossible to communicate the complexities and depths of my experience in any single magazine article or a 10-minute television interview. And even then, my words were filtered through someone else’s lens, largely satisfying someone else’s assignment to define me. 

This book is composed of my memories, my mishaps, my struggles, my survival, and my songs. Unfiltered. I went deep into my childhood and gave the scared little girl inside of me a big voice. I let the abandoned and ambitious adolescent have her say, and the betrayed and triumphant woman I became tell her side. 

Writing this memoir was incredibly hard, humbling and healing. My sincere hope is that you are moved to a new understanding, not only about me, but also about the resilience of the human spirit. 

Love,

Mariah

THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING

I laughed, cried, giggles and cried some more along the way with you Mariah Carey! This was everything and more for all of us Lambily. It tugged at my heart strings whenever you mentioned us (your fans), and how much you adored us. Now I'm going to listen to this entire book again while reading along with the book!! Hearing you read, and sing along the way felt like you were right there with me on the couch having a few splashes while you regaled me with your stories. gosh, what a feeling. THANK YOU, THANK YOU SO SO MUCH for giving us this wonderful gift, YOU. we love you forever. -marian

Exceptional Writing of an Exceptional Story

This is a fantastic literary work of art that discusses some major themes in life. Race, identity, delicate family relationships, abuse and overcoming. Mariah’s reading makes the experience very intimate and is necessary for this audio. It is her story, no one else could have read it and, sang it in parts, like her. Whether for a fan or not, this is a very enjoyable and utterly fascinating material.

A Diva Defined

I highly recommend this book to anyone who feels less-than, lonely, not good enough, an outcast... (and many other adjectives). I especially enjoyed Mariah’s humility. As a lamb (die-hard Mariah fan) it’s wonderful to hear her be so open about things she never really expanded on previously. The audio version of this book is amazing. Mariah includes many a cappella moments of songs she’s preformed thousands of times and songs she had rarely or never performed live. I believe this book did everything that Mariah had intended it to do. I now know the meaning of Mariah Carey.

So intimate and fabulously written and read

Listening to this book was like walking through marvelous monumental buildings that is of Mariah’s timeless hits, and getting a VIP tour through stories in the inspiration, characters, blood, sweat and tears it took to becoming the Mariah we love and grew up with. Like a reveal in plot of a romantic movie, I was elated and teared up/gushed when she spoke of the inspiration behind The Roof, one of my all time favorite songs to this day - I’ve always wondered who and what this song was about if there was an event that actually happened because the lyrics were so specific and had always evoked a sensual, sad longing that’s relatable. Even 20+ years later it’s still a great song. I got angry and happy for her as she talks about some of the micro and pivotal moments of her life, I cried when she shared stories about her father. I would sing along with her when she sang portions of her hit songs, connecting each to events that inspired them. This is the best audio book of the year, deep conversations on race, acceptance, growing up with the maturity of doing what’s best for you, and holding tightly onto your dreams. Impeccably written and read.

Interesting, Surprising and Articulate

I loved that Mariah narrated her own memoir. It felt as if she were really telling me her story. It was quite surprising hearing about her rough childhood and adolescent years, but also quite inspiring to hear how she overcame all these obstacles intended to set up her failure. Yet she still managed to be one of the most talented artists of all time. Bonuses are hearing her singing throughout most of the chapters. Highly recommended, especially to Mariah fans.

Fragile, forte, talentueuse et humaine !

Mariah Carey nous livre une performance exceptionnelle après 30 ans d'une fabuleuse carrière. Oubliez les interviews, ragots, écoutez Mariah exprimer SA vision, ses souvenirs, cette force qui l'a conduite à tant de succès. Une artiste à part entière qui n'oublie pas d'où elle vient, et qui honore ses fans à chaque moment. Comme les chansons qu'elle écrit, ce livre inspire et même si l'on ne se sent pas proche de sa musique, avec ce livre, on ne peut que se rapprocher de l'artiste, de l'humain.

Wonderful Strong Woman

Daaaahhhling !

Je connaissais la vie de Mariah Carey, j’ai toujours été fan de sa musique, mais certainement pas au travers de son propre prisme qui reflète sa propre histoire, sa véritable et personnelle identité. Un vrai plaisir de l’entendre conter sa propre existence. J’ai adoré !

Entertaining glitz glam smoke and mirrors - not the whole story.

This is Mariah’s story - I wish she addressed her bipolar diagnosis in 2001 and her subsequent admission almost 20 years later so much seems missing because she leaves this part out. It feels like she’s denying a part of it and because of that I feel like I didn’t get to really know who this woman is - only who she wants us to be. She presents as a victim often. Most impressive is her commanding storytelling which is enveloping and immersive. The audio performance is relaxing and thrilling to hear her sing often as well as her moving reading of many emotionally heavy parts.

Phenomenal

Mariah... we may have thought we knew her but until you have completed this book, you do not know her. The glitz and glam have covered up years of hurt and betrayal but with the help of good friends, her faith, family, and fans, Mariah overcome many obstacles. I’m proud to be a Lamb. Mariah, thank you for allowing us into your life. This is a beautiful book!

World vs Mariah

First let me say I’ve been a HUGE fan of Mariah’s for like 30+ years. But I have to just put this out there. Title should be “Mariah: Through the Lens of Race” or “The World vs. Mariah”. She’s very quick to write off her white mother because her mother dared scold her for laughing at her mom’s singing; however, her black father is portrayed in an almost heroic figure even though he was violent at times. It feels like, at time, she’s trying very hard prove that white people have been very bad throughout her life. Also, everything is a slight toward her. I’d like to hear the other perspectives of how they feel things went down. The story of the kindergarten student teacher and two other adults at the school berating her for “using the wrong color crayon” to color her father seems very unlikely to have happened the way she remembers it. I don’t think I’m going to be able to finish the book, especially if it doesn’t change in tone. I’m currently at almost 4 hours in.

Holy Crap it's Really Her!

I can't believe she's reading it herself! I will own a physical copy but until it arrives I thought why not use a credit to have it on my phone 🤷‍♀️ I never thought it would be her actually reading it herself but boy what a surprise and a treat! No one holds a flame to Mariah and could never tell her story they way she would/ can /did! I feel like I have the best of both worlds, a tangible book to cherish and the author, & my favorite person of all time, reading it to me on the go! This project was a long time coming and will crush all the little "unofficial" biographies I used to buy as a kid so I'm ready to have my wig snatched! Thank you God for small miracles in the midst of one of the globally agreed worst years of the century! 🙏❤🐑

The Emancipation of One Mariah Carey

Mariah The Carey, or Mimi as her closest friends call her delivers a gripping tale but not one of two cities. No, in fact, The Meaning of Mariah Carey takes you a journey of her most personal moments and her most public hour. She regales the life of a wayward biracial child who never knew how to fit in and perhaps never needed to fit in because she, was meant for far greater isles. From racists children to possessive manchilds, from having nothing and no one to having all she wanted for Christmas, this scared little girl just wanted to sing and be free to play in her musical sandbox. Mariah is at her most vulnerable and most POWERFUL as she unravels and upends all that we (well the media) thought they knew about who and what she is. In undergoing this road long travelled, you will gain a fair bit of acknowledgment, sympathy, and remorse of who she is but do not get it twisted, Mimi does not need your tears or pity. Afterall she's a born DIVA, an Aries Dahling! This book is a true gift to the Lambs (her fans) and even to those who may not have thought she had much depth and nuance behind that fiery persona; she's so much more! Mariah will undoubtedly go down as one of the Greatest Vocal legends of our time, eh of several decades. What's a decade again?
