Mariah Carey on being high-maintenance: 'I deserve to be at this point’

'Well, the cat's out of the bag!'

October 7, 2020

Mariah Carey will never let remarks like being called a “diva” or “high-maintenance” get her down, in fact, Mimi wears these titles like an absolute Queen.

During an interview with The Guardian about her new memoir, The Meaning of Mariah Carey the “Save The Day” singer welcomed the idea of being labeled “high-maintenance.”

The Lambily matriarch brilliantly and boldly says, “You know what? I don’t give a s***. I f****** am high-maintenance because I deserve to be at this point. That may sound arrogant, but I hope you frame it within the context of coming from nothing.” Additionally Mariah shares, "If I can’t be high-maintenance after working my a** off my entire life, oh, I’m sorry -- I didn’t realize we all had to be low maintenance. Hell, no! I was always high-maintenance, it’s just I didn’t have anyone to do the maintenance when I was growing up!”

Carey even took to Twitter to sarcastically update the world that she is in fact “high-maintenance,” after The Guardian interview was shared. “Well, the cat's out of the bag! Now you all know I'm high maintenance. Oh well,” writes Mariah alongside a perfectly hilarious shrugging gif from her judging days on American Idol. 

The Meaning of Mariah Carey is out everywhere along with Carey’s newest Rarities album.
