In October of 2019, we learned that pop superstar Mariah Carey was planning to tell all in a new memoir about her life and career.
At the time, Mariah explained that she would not be holding anything back from fans, including details about her 2001 "supposed breakdown" as she called it. "All of this to be revealed in the book, by the way, which I’m obsessed with writing right now. It’s so cathartic."
Mimi tweeted out a hint about the book's completion just yesterday, with a photo of the tome's foreword along with the word, "Delivered" -- suggesting her work was in publishers' hands.
"It took me a lifetime to have the courage and the clarity to write my memoir," the photo reads. "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."
"This book is composed of my memories, my mishaps, my struggles, my survival and my songs," she continues. "Unfiltered. I went deep inside 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."
Now, we have an official release date.
Mariah is one of the most successful artists in music history with over 200 million albums sold to date, and numerous number one singles under her belt. She's also the recipient of multiple GRAMMYs, and has been inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
Most recently, Carey decided to bypass celebrating the 30th anniversary of her debut, self-titled album in light of the Black Lives Matter movement taking place across the nation, asking that her fans continue to be agents of change instead.
