The Meaning of Mariah Carey

The Meaning of Mariah Carey by Mariah Carey Book Summary

The Instant #1 New York Times Bestseller

The global icon, award-winning singer, songwriter, producer, actress, mother, daughter, sister, storyteller, and artist finally tells the unfiltered story of her life in The Meaning of Mariah Carey

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 ten-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.

I’m not going to lie - I have always loved the music but not always the outward persona of Mariah Carey. This book made me really understand Mariah as a person & as a creative soul. Thank you for being so honest - it was a pleasure getting to know you & your journey. God Bless you & your family!

I loved this book!!! It took me on a spree of re-listening to all of my Mariah favorites for weeks! It was interesting to learn about her life and how amazing she is! I love her!! 💕🦋

- Amazing5 star

While I was reading it I got so many goose bumps so many times. I always felt very connected to Mariah Carey BACK in 2006 when I came to the USA. After I heard her voice I became her number one fan however, there was a spiritual connection as well and today I know why upon finishing reading her book. Mariah, we love you and keep being the strong person that you are! It amazes me all that you have gone through and still how you manage to be a being of light. I can connect with your story in so many ways but JUST LIKE YOU I keep holding on to faith and I don’t ever let them take that away from me. I hope you keep healing because I do know sometimes there are BACK lashes but God is great and those two beautiful children, which I myself also have two kids, are the reason to keep shining and pushing through. That shied that you created to protect yourself will forever be your guard and use it every time you want to because your peace doesn’t have a price. Don’t let them put a tag on it! Love you; your number one fan dahhhling. And here is for mire festivities and amazing moments to come!!!

This is an incredible storybook of the life of Mariah Carey! Wow! It took me on a roller coaster of emotions. Thank you for sharing so much. Love you always! #Lambily

- Mariah is a GENIUS!5 star

Wow, crazy how amongst all of her albums she goes back and writes about the pain and struggles she faced with family, the industry, and relationships. I love that about Mariah!

- W.O.W!5 star

Simply amazing! As a lamb, you think you know everything there is about Mariah. But clearly that was just the tip of the iceberg! I had to go back and listen to her songs again with a newfound understanding and respect for the lyrical content. Mariah will forever remain my idol and one day I hope to be able to share a moment with her to let her know how much she means to me.

- Amazing1 star

Half way through and try to put it down to get work done but I instinctively pick it back up. Help me!

- A lesson in faith5 star

As a lifelong lamb, there were not many revelations in this book that I hadn’t suspected. The painful familial relationships, the suffocating marriage, the racial isolation have been in Mariah’s music all along, and I KNOW the catalog, dahhhling! That said, I was riveted the entire way through this book. Mariah owns the telling of these stories, and balances unflinching honesty with that meme-able humor we all know so well. She describes events as they impacted her, giving us an understanding of how she ticks and how she survives. As she chronicles her journey of survival and success, Mariah lays out a blueprint for employing faith to navigate any sort of struggle, any kind of pain. Thank you, MC for sharing your story with us for the past 30 years! It’s exactly why “you’ll always be a part of me” 🎶🦋

- Eloquent writer, opulent soul5 star

Mariah is so inspiring because she has been through the unfathomable yet is so successful and stands strong. This book is indicative of the stellar person she is beyond what is portrayed by the media and adversaries, and her ascent of a life story that delineates her humbleness and vulnerability.

- Every page I was more shocked than the next.5 star

We see her as this diva who has it all and that may be true... however, this book showed us that she came from less than nothing and somehow overcame it all. If there is just wasn’t chapter to read it would be “Dandelion Tea.” Drugged my her sister, almost raped at a drive thru at 12 & three degree burns by hot tea being thrown at her it is so sad yet so encouraging to people struggling.

- Real Treat for the Lambs5 star

No Wendy, these aren’t stories we’ve heard before. Mariah takes us deep into her childhood and shares some very personal, raw, and untold stories. She even sings songs she’s never performed live before. Written the way only Mariah can, this woman is a genius. Even if you aren’t a fan/don’t care for her, this book really gives you insight as to what it’s like growing up biracial, and inspiration to overcome whatever life throws your way.

- Wow- truly inspirational for anyone5 star

I did not expect this to be as good as it is. Mariah truly shocked me with how open and honest she is. How raw. Her story is one of inspiration for anyone.

- Outstanding!5 star

Fantastic read. Made me love her even more!

- What a Life5 star

Mariah Carey is so private. This book is vague but still enough insight to be worth it. She has milked that one drop rule. I pray she truly gets over what she was dealt in the beginning of her life. She’s a success because she writes about that pain that Most people experience or are still experiencing. Blink two times if tommy Mottola is part of the mafia.

- icon5 star

this woman is an icon, misunderstood and bashed by the media. this book will truly change your perspective on this amazing woman.

Regardless of what your perception is of Mariah, the meaning of Mariah is more than just that. It’s the meaning of the little girl, the singer, the writer, and the diva. Completely genuine and honest I have found a new respect for Mariah and admire her courage to tell her story.
