Mariah Carey Says Her Memoir Is ‘Composed Of My Memories, Mishaps & Struggles Unfiltered’

Five-time Grammy-award winner Mariah Carey, 50, is revealing what fans can expect from her forthcoming memoir. She shared an open letter about creating her self-titled project on social media. Reports state the book is expected to be released under TV executive Andy Cohen. Mariah Carey wrote:

“IT TOOK ME A LIFETIME TO HAVE THE COURAGE AND THE CLARITY TO WRITE MY MEMOIR. I WANT TO TELL THE STORY OF THE MOMENTS – THE UPS AND DOWNS, THE TRIUMPHS AND TRAUMAS, THE DEBACLES AND THE DREAMS, THAT CONTRIBUTED TO THE PERSON I AM TODAY.”







The award-winning singer-songwriter explained that throughout her career she has found it difficult to share her experiences in life, as outlets have often shaped stories to fit their narratives.

“THOUGH THERE HAVE BEEN COUNTLESS STORIES ABOUT ME THROUGHOUT MY CAREER AND VERY PUBLIC PERSONAL LIFE, IT’S BEEN IMPOSSIBLE TO COMMUNICATE THE COMPLEXITIES AND DEPTHS OF MY EXPERIENCE IN ANY SINGLE MAGAZINE ARTICLE OR A TEN-MINUTE TELEVISION INTERVIEW. AND EVEN THEN, MY WORDS WERE FILTERED THROUGH SOMEONE ELSE’S LENS, LARGELY SATISFYING SOMEONE ELSE’S ASSIGNMENT TO DEFINE ME.”

Now, through her book, Mariah Carey said she has the opportunity to share her stories without it being altered or filtered by interviews and magazine articles.







She added:

“THIS BOOK IS COMPOSED OF MY MEMORIES, MY MISHAPS, MY STRUGGLES, MY SURVIVAL AND MY SONGS, UNFILTERED. I WENT TO DEEP INTO MY CHILDHOOD AND GAVE THE SACRED LITTLE GIRL INSIDE OF ME A BIG VOICE. I LET THE ABANDONED AND AMBITIOUS ADOLESCENT HAVE HER SAY, AND THE BETRAYED AND TRIUMPHANT WOMAN I BECAME TELL HER SIDE.”

Carey finished off the letter with:

“WRITING THIS MEMOIR WAS INCREDIBLY HARD, HUMBLING, AND HEALING. MY SINCERE HOPE IS THAT YOU ARE MOVED TO A NEW UNDERSTANDING, NOT ONLY ABOUT ME, BUT ALSO ABOUT THE RESILIENCE OF THE HUMAN SPIRIT. LOVE, Mariah”








News of Carey’s memoir reportedly came after being diagnosed and treated for a bipolar disorder. A source close to the singer stated:

There were very few people in her circle who knew [she was bipolar]. It was a very personal decision for her. She’s been on and off medication since she was diagnosed. 

There was a small group of people who really cared for her, personally. They gradually left. There were a lot of issues. It was so layered. It was very, very bad. 

There is currently no additional information on when Carey’s memoir will be released.

Juice WRLD’s Photographer Alleges Rapper Died From Drug Addiction, Not Swallowing Pills To Hide Them From Cops

Juice WRLD’s Photographer Alleges Rapper Died From Drug Addiction, Not Swallowing Pills To Hide Them From Cops

Juice WRLD‘s former photographer is adding new speculation to the artist’s untimely death.

Juice WRLD (real name Jarad Higgins) passed away at Chicago Midway International Airport on December 8th, 2019. He died as a result of a seizure, and it was speculated that the “All Girls Are The Same” singer suffered the seizure as a result of overdosing on pills he was trying to hide from the police. This speculation was fueled by reports of Juice WRLD taking Percocet pills on the plane and having knowledge that the FBI was preparing to search the aircraft. Juice WRLD had also reportedly been stopped by Customs Agents on a different flight about a month before his passing, further adding to the narrative.

However, Juice WRLD‘s former photographer Chris Long has recently come out with a different version of events. Chris Long, who was onboard Juice WRLD’s final flight and even allegedly caught a weapon’s charge for him, took to Twitter to set the record straight.

In his series of tweets, Chris Long makes various claims, including “[Juice WRLD] did not swallow a bunch of pills because the police [were] at the airport” and “[Juice WRLD] was just hooked bad.” After claiming that Juice WRLD was considering rehab, Chris Long goes on to state:

“[N]o one knew how much he really took because he was hiding it.”

Shortly after these tweets, Chris Long goes on to express how much he misses the dearly departed rapper.

These allegations add an additional layer to the narrative surrounding Juice WRLD‘s death, as it suggests that the star’s struggles with drugs were more intense than the public previously thought. Neither Juice WRLD‘s representatives nor family have commented on Chris Long‘s allegations.

Andra Day Says She Dealt With Porn & Sex Addiction While Filming ‘The United States vs. Billie Holiday’

Andra Day Says She Dealt With Porn & Sex Addiction While Filming ‘The United States vs. Billie Holiday’

Andra Day’s acting debut in ‘The United States vs. Billie Holiday’ was definitely a hit and well received by the film industry. Her portrayal of Billie Holiday landed her an Oscar nomination and a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture-Drama.

Andra Day recently shared that while she was portraying Billie Holiday, and the struggles the jazz singer faced on screen, she was dealing with her own battles off camera. During an interview with InStyle, the 36-year-old entertainer revealed that she struggled with porn and sex addictions while filming the biopic. And because of that, she wanted the film to be more about Billie Holiday’s music and less about the hyper-sexualization she dealt with during her career. She said,

“I didn’t want any element of sexualization. I had come out of something in my own life — dealing with porn addiction, sex addiction. I’m being very, very candid with you because I’m not the only one. But I knew I wanted all of that very much gone.”

Andra Day continued and said that she’s in a much better place now.

“I feel now, after playing Billie, that I’m honoring her, and the strength that is femininity. I’m definitely in a healthier place to enjoy that because I’m outside of the addiction, if you will. So, yeah, it’s been really fun, because it’s been very new for me.”

As previously reported, Andra Day took her part as Billie Holiday very seriously and lost 40 lbs for the role. When speaking on her body transformation she shared that she liked her figure being ‘juicy.’

“I’ve had people ask me, ‘Do you feel prettier now that you’ve lost weight?’ I was like, ‘Hell, no! I liked being juicy! I was cool.’ But I do like the way [the weight loss] feels on my body, I like the way it feels on my joints. You do notice a difference. Besides, to me, there is no such thing as a classic beauty. Beauty takes on so many different forms, in different times and depending on the nation. It’s just about being confident, loving yourself, and understanding your value.”

She added that playing Billie Holiday has helped with her confidence and feeling beautiful.

“It has to do with Billie. It was almost like she said, ‘Sis, we’re going to have to close this, because I have to survive.’ She opened me up to value myself in a way that I hadn’t fully before.”

Jay-Z & Tina Turner Inducted Into Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, LL Cool J Honored With Musical Excellence Award

Congratulations are in order for Jay-Z, Tina Turner, and LL Cool J!

Earlier today (Wednesday, May 12th), the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame announced its list of inductees for 2021, and Jay-Z and Tina Turner were among the artists named! Additionally, LL Cool J was announced to receive a Musical Excellence Award.

In order to be eligible for induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, artists have to have released their debut commercial recording at least 25 years before nomination. Resultingly, this was the first year that Jay-Z (born Shawn Carter) was eligible, as his debut Reasonable Doubt album hit airwaves back in 1996 with hits like “Can’t Knock the Hustle.”

Tina Turner (born Anna Mae Bullock), on the other hand, made her solo debut back in 1974. However, it was her fifth solo album, 1984’s Private Dancer, that shot her into superstardom. Before her solo career, Tina Turner was a part of the Ike & Tina Turner musical group, which was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame back in 1991.

LL Cool J (born James Smith) is not currently inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, although has been eligible for some time now since his debut album was released in 1985. However, the “Around The Way Girl” rapper is being honored with a Musical Excellence Award at this year’s ceremony to acknowledge his musical prowess!

The 2021 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will occur on October 30th at 8 p.m. (EST) at Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse in Cleveland, Ohio. It will air via HBO on a later date.
