Mariah Carey spoke with ITN about ‘Precious’, the latest film she stars in with fellow singer Lenny Kravitz. Carey said her past wasn’t as easy as many might perceive, which made it easier to relate to her role. “I guess people have this confused version of who they think I am – like I’m this princess that fell down from Never Never Land, and grew up exfoliating my skin with diamonds,” Mariah said. “No. That’s not who I am. I really had a lot of intense things happen to me as a child and growing up.” Watch via YouTube below.
