Mariah Carey Opens Up About Suffering From 'Low Self-Esteem'

Mariah Carey is all smiles in a black and gold low cut dress as she steps out of her car on Tuesday night (August 22) in Boston, Mass.

The 47-year-old entertainer romantically held hands with her on-again boyfriend Bryan Tanaka as they departed the restaurant Ocean Prime located in Boston’s bustling Seaport District following Mariah‘s concert at TD Garden.

Over the weekend at her Madison Square Garden show, Mariah opened up about suffering from “low self-esteem” as an aspiring singer.

“I just feel like I am a regular human being and I deserve the same respect as anybody else. I have always had low self-esteem, and people do not recognize that. I can’t measure what type of respect I deserve — I really can’t,” Mariah told PageSix. “Growing up different, being biracial, having the whole thing where I did not know if I fit in,” Mariah added. “That is why music became such a big part of my life, because it helped me overcome those issues. Sometimes it is hard to let your guard down.”
