Have you ever wondered how many gossips and rumors an artist such as Mariah has had to face during her life?. Mariah Carey has been seriously attacked by media, in some cases, rumors have been negative for her career.
In the beginning of her career, Mariah was criticized because she married Thomas Mottola, president of Columbia Records at that moment. Some foreign press affirmed that Mariah was the reason why Mottola and his ex-wife broke up. What many people who have read this story don’t know, is that Mottola divorced in 1987, he met Mariah in 1989, and he married her in 1993. This marriage came with other gossip, press said that Mariah was so successful because she had all the support because she was married to the president of Sony Music, and that he only paid attention to his young wife. These rumors were fading when Mariah Carey divorced and her albums were still selling millions.
In addition, Mariah was seriously attacked in 1999, when some media published a Mariah Carey saying that she would love to be as skinny as those children in poor areas of Africa, but without all the flies. This gossip was too hard, and a few weeks after the nonsense article, people knew the truth…the article was false.
Other many gossip have been spreading through the years. For example, in 1999 Mariah married Mexican singer Luis Miguel. A few months ago I was watching TV and the reporter said: “Did you know that some icons do some weird things. For example, did you know that Mariah Carey doesn’t use stairs, she is a diva and she always asks her body guards for help” In 2001 Mariah said bad things about Mottola’s new wife, and many other gossips and lies.
However, the hardest gossips came out in 2001, when media affirmed that Mariah tried to suicide because she realized that her single ‘Loverboy’ was not doing so well, and that Luis Miguel was not part of her life anymore. During 2001, press also said that Mariah was alcoholic, she used drugs, and that she was getting crazy. These are the hardest gossip in her career because a painful lie is always uncomfortable and sad.
There are hundreds of rumors and gossips, some of them are just silly; other ones are evil and they can really affect anyone. When we hear another silly story; let’s not repeat it, that’s how everything starts, and let’s not forget Mariah Carey is someone who feels and who can gets hurt easily, she is a sensitive human being not a cartoon without feelings such as Mickey Mouse; So don’t believe everything you hear.
