Mariah Carey Explains the Real Reason She Cares About Christmas So Much

Mariah Carey Explains the Real Reason She Cares About Christmas So Much

Mariah Carey is opening up about her festive spirit.

The “All I Want for Christmas Is You” singer opened up in an interview with Elle. Here’s what she had to say…

On her history with the holiday and creating the Christmases that she always wanted to have: “I think it’s just that longing that I had as a child, that I always wanted things to be perfect for the holidays. And they never were. It was always somebody ruining the moment, always these dysfunctional family members who came around and foiled everything. And so I just made a pact with myself that I wasn’t going to allow that to happen anymore. After I kind of emerged from my first relationship–slash–marriage, I created the Christmases that I wanted to have.”

On not seeing herself as a celebrity: “When you frame it as ‘celebrity,’ I don’t really know how to answer that question…because I don’t really see myself as a celebrity. I’m a recording artist. I make music, occasionally. Not to be like, ‘How dare you call me a celebrity?’ I love the glamorous stuff and the dress-up of it all. But the truth is, that’s work to me.”

Mariah on the importance of maintaining control of her music and why it was her “saving grace”: “When I write down words—I have to protect that, because this is something that people try to take from you.”

On being a biracial kid, and feeling like she didn’t belong anywhere: “It’s very difficult to explain to most people who haven’t experienced that on some level. Being very ambiguous-looking, that really affected the way people saw me or judged me, depending on what kind of caste system you grew up with…there would always be that question of, ‘What are you?’ Not ‘Who are you? How can I get to know you as a person?’ But ‘What are you? Oh, you’re so exotic. What are you mixed with?’ It depends who’s asking the question and how they ask the question.”

'Juno' & 'Umbrella Academy' Star Elliot Page Comes Out as Trans - Read the Statement

'Juno' & 'Umbrella Academy' Star Elliot Page Comes Out as Trans - Read the Statement

Juno and The Umbrella Academy star Elliot Page is coming out as trans and explaining their pronouns are he/they.

The 33-year-old star posted a message on their Twitter account, writing, “Hi friends, I want to share with you that I am trans, my pronouns are he/they and my name is Elliot. I feel lucky to be writing this. To be here. To have arrived at this place in my life.”

Elliot continued, “I feel overwhelming gratitude for the incredible people who have supported me along this journey. I can’t begin to express how remarkable it feels to finally love who I am enough to pursue my authentic self. I’ve been endlessly inspired by so many in the trans community. Thank you for your courage, your generosity and ceaselessly working to make this world a more inclusive and compassionate place. I will offer whatever support I can and continue to strive for a more loving and equal society.”

Elliot then added some upsetting information about discrimination that transgender people face on a daily basis.

“I also ask for patience. My joy is real, but it is also fragile,” Elliot added. “The truth is, despite feeling profoundly happy right now and knowing how much privilege I carry, I am also scared. I’m scared of the invasiveness, the hate, the ‘jokes’ and of violence. To be clear, I am not trying to dampen a moment that is joyous and one that I celebrate, but I want to address the full picture. The statistics are staggering. The discrimination towards trans people is rife, insidious and cruel, resulting in horrific consequences. In 2020 alone it has been reported that at least 40 transgender people have been murdered, the majority of which were Black and Latinx trans women. To the political leaders who work to criminalize trans health care and deny our right to exist and to all of those with a massive platform who continue to spew hostility towards the trans community: you have blood on your hands. You unleash a fury of vile and demeaning rage that lands on the shoulders of the trans community, a community in which 40, of trans adults report attempting suicide. Enough is enough. You aren’t being ‘cancelled,’ you are hurting people. I am one of those people and we won’t be silent in the face of your attacks.”

“I love that I am trans. And I love that I am queer. A. the more I hold myself close and fully embrace who I am, the more I dream, the more my heart grows and the more I thrive. To all trans people who deal with harassment, self-loathing, abuse and the threat of violence every day: I see you, I love you and I will do everything I can to change this world for the better,” Elliot added.

Jennifer Lawrence Releases Statement on the Fire at Her Family's Barn & Summer Camp

Jennifer Lawrence Releases Statement on the Fire at Her Family's Barn & Summer Camp

Jennifer Lawrence has released a statement on the devastation that occurred at her family’s camp, Camp Hi Ho, in Kentucky.

If you missed the tragic news, over the weekend, the 30-year-old actress’ brother Blaine revealed on Camp Hi-Ho’s Facebook that the barn had burnt down. The barn was the base of a summer camp in Kentucky that has been going on for several years.

“I want to thank my Louisville community for reaching out to my family and me following the devastating fire that sadly destroyed a significant part of Camp Hi Ho,” Jennifer told People. “Thankfully, because of our amazing firefighters and first responders, no one was hurt and all of the animals were kept safe. I grew up on that farm, going to Camp Hi Ho every summer. When my brother Blaine took it over, he applied his creative mind and fun loving spirit and expanded a camp that was already the coolest, because it was the only place where kids could do whatever they wanted. A muddy messy paradise.

“I’m grateful to Camp Hi Ho for the amazing childhood memories. My family and I are working together to help Blaine through this. And we are so grateful for the widespread support from the community to get Camp Hi Ho back up and running so we can welcome kids back this summer,” Jennifer added.

Jennifer recently revealed some personal information about herself and her upbringing.
