Mariah Carey Bares Her Soul In Seoul
Mariah Carey answers questions at a press conference at the Grand Intercontinental Hotel on Tuesday (October 13) in Seoul, South Korea.
The 39-year-old singer was asked about why she titled her album, Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel. “Society seems to make people feel bad about not being perfect, especially in the entertainment business. I thought, wouldn’t it be cool if that would be the theme of the album and speak to the people who may be growing up, and you feel you’re not good enough…It’s one of those things when the title makes the record,” she said.
Mariah also answered questions about balancing her personal life and her career. “Some people didn’t live their lives wanting to be entertainers. I did,” she said. “I make music, I perform, this is who I am. I do definitely want to have a family. I got married a year and half ago … It is difficult to do both things. I have to take time to eventually to have a family with no dysfunction, it’s hard, and also try to make music. It’s a balancing act.”
