Mariah Carey was interviewed by 60 Minutes in Australia, where the singer was asked by Liz Hayes about her diva image, her failed marriage to Tommy Mottola, and her breakdown. Carey was asked if the breakdown was something she had to have in order to get her life back on track. “Yes, I believe so,” she said. “I believe that everything happens for a reason and it’s actually a miracle that I made it as long as I did through the difficult situations that I encountered. It wasn’t a nervous breakdown, but it was definitely a breakdown in terms of emotionally and most definitely physically, because any time you go six days without sleep, your body’s going to, you’re going to collapse, I don’t care who you are.”
