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.”

You’ve got to see all the stars appearing in her upcoming Christmas special – watch the trailer!

In the video, a scary character leads us down a hall in front of a door splattered with blood and the words “not yet,” which she constantly tells people who ask her if it’s time to celebrate yet.

“It’s time,” she says before erupting into a cheer in front of a festive Christmas tree.

Her massive No. 1 hit single “All I Want for Christmas Is You” has also just entered the Top 200 on iTunes.

And that’s not all! She’s been teasing some sort of project for a few weeks now, and fans think she might be working with two pop powerhouse vocalists.

She also recently got candid about one of her last romantic relationships, and revealed that it was not physical.

Mariah Carey‘s new compilation album The Rarities is the type of album that every diehard fan is going to love and listen to on repeat!

The Grammy-winning singer went deep into her archive and put together an album full of previously unreleased material that she never completed before.

“Basically, I found stuff in my vault that I had either started to work on a long time ago and never released or that I wanted to finish mixing or do whatever. But they’re songs that have previously not been released,” Mariah said on GMA.

The album is a two-disc set and the second disc features a live recording from Mariah‘s Daydream World Tour at the Tokyo Dome in Japan. It was recorded in March 1996.

You can download the album now on iTunes or stream it below from Spotify!
