Also...Mariah opens up about her troubled childhood in a new interview with Pitchfork.
"It was very difficult. People don’t really know about it because I’ve always been pretty vague, but I’ve alluded to it in certain songs," Carey explained. "A lot of intense stuff happened to me when I was a kid, that people who grew up with money or with families that weren’t fully dysfunctional will never quite understand."
Mariah notes that a lot of her troubles stemmed from the fact that she felt like she “didn’t fit in,” noting that the “Caution” song “8th Grade” touches on the subject. “That is not a happy song,” she says. “When we were writing that song, I just had this melancholy thing in me, and it still felt young. I just know what I felt like."
