Marian Liu of the San Jose Mercury News caught up with Mariah Carey who talked about her attitude following her emotional breakdown in 2001. “Now I realized, that the most important thing is to just take care of myself as a human being, and not just like as an object that gets on stage and sings, or is in a video,” Carey said. “That’s because I started out so young, like right out of high school, that it was like, learn how to be superwoman, you don’t take time off for yourself, you don’t have your own moments, you don’t have your own space. That’s what the older people wanted me to feel, that’s what the business people wanted me to feel, because it’s easier for them to make money off of someone like that, off my insecurities as a young person. But, now I’ve learned. It’s all about being creative in your moments when you need to be creative, and then you know, not killing yourself in the process.”
