Mariah Carey promises to tell it all. In a few days, the diva will release her autobiography, titled The Meaning of Mariah. “This book is made up of my memories, my misadventures, my struggles, my survival and my songs,” explained the singer on social networks, impatient to see her memories in bookstores on September 29. this memoir has been incredibly difficult, humbling and calming. I sincerely hope that you are brought to a new understanding, not only of me, but also of the resilience of the human spirit. ” In an interview with Vulture, who also shared the Good Sheets, Mariah Carey gives herself open heart. She returned in particular to a complicated period of her life: her marriage to Tommy Mottola. In the 1990s, it was the former director of Sony Music who allowed her to get into music when she was 19 years old. After meeting in 1988, the two began a romance and tied the knot in a lavish ceremony five years later.
In her autobiography, Mariah Carey repeatedly describes this marriage as determining for her life as for her career. And yet, alongside Tommy Mottola, she felt like “a prisoner” watched 24 hours a day. In The Meaning of Mariah, the singer tells how her ex-husband was watching her, thanks to security cameras and a close team. who signaled his every move. “It was like oppressive humidity,” she explains. More than 23 years after their separation, the singer is still touched to talk about this complicated period of her love story. “There was a conscious effort to keep me in the role of the little American,” said Mariah Carey, who managed to continue her career after their media separation (…) It was very controlled. There was no freedom for me as a human being. It was almost like being a prisoner. ” In his own memoir, published in 2013, Tommy Mottola defended himself against his ex’s accusations.

Was I obsessive? Yes. But that was also one of the reasons for his success. ” Separated with loss and noise in 1998, the exes continue to launch regular spikes in the media. A few years ago, Tommy Mottola had tackled his ex-wife, yet still used to success. If he had described her as “the greatest pop voice to come in the last three decades”, he had advised her to surround himself “with more experienced and respected professionals to surround him and help him in his career. “.
