Tired of Mariah Carey’s Anxiety

Tired of Mariah Carey’s Anxiety

I don’t know about you, but I’ve had it with Mariah Carey whining about being biracial. She has given many interviews about her very tough life. Give me a break. No one has it easy and we’re not saying there are not certain circumstances that are challenging for multiracial people, but she’s been pretty lucky that she’s so talented. Now during an interview with People, she insinuated that her struggle with bipolar disorder stems from the identity crisis she dealt with as a biracial child. Really?! Maybe only the psychiatric community can answer that, but we can be sure of one thing: Mariah Carey is no role model for biracial and multiracial children.

FAMOUS FRIDAY: Mariah Carey

mariah-carey-rockafeller-center-christmas-tree-lightingAs we enter the holiday season, it is only fitting to feature one of the queens of holiday music, Mariah Carey. She moved to Manhattan the day after her high school graduation to pursue her career. Carey is an extremely talented singer, producer, songwriter, and actress. She even currently holds the record for most number one debuts on the Billboard Hot 100. She has sold over 80 million records and won several Grammies! Over the course of her career she has accumulated a net worth of over 500 million dollars.

Mariah is 46 years old now and primarily focused on parenting her two children. However, she is still expanding her career. Mariah Carey’s collaboration with MAC Cosmetics recently released, and has already proved to be a fan favorite. Some may argue that there aren’t many things that this woman can’t do! I personally find these words from her particularly inspiring, “You really have to look inside yourself and find your own inner strength, and say, ‘I’m proud of what I am and who I am, and I’m just going to be myself.’” May we always remember to believe in our true, authentic selves and who we are becoming! Happy Holidays!
