Mariah Carey Insecure About Her Looks
Pop Diva Mariah Carey who has made the world dance on her numbers has revealed that she is insecure about her looks. The singer confessed that she is conscious about her beauty and appearance since the age of 19.
Mariah Carey said, "I remember starting out and being at a record company at 19 and having someone tell me, 'This is your good side and this is your bad side. Don't ever let anyone take pictures of you from that side. You look terrible from that side,' and so on. It created this whole complex."
The 40-year old star explained that the reason of her insecurity is that she is of mixed race. Mariah Carey’s mother is Irish-American and her father was an African-American of Venezuelan descent.
"I felt very different as a bi-racial person. Growing up where I did, being half-black and half-white was a weird and difficult thing because I didn't quite fit in either place and I moved around a lot," the singer revealed.
"So when I went from that to this world it was like, let's create an inferiority complex before we make this person go on TV and try to have confidence. So it was all about building self-confidence," she added.
