Grammy award-winning singer Mariah Carey has expressed that she suffers from, “low self-esteem.”

Many super stars suffered from low self-esteem even though they mean the world to their fans. As a child tennis champion, Serena Williams suffered from self-esteem issues as she was always in her sister’s shadow. The iconic Oprah Winfrey suffered from self-esteem issues as well from a young age after being raped and abused. It would seem that there’s a sometimes harsh price to pay to be famous.

In an interview with Page Six, Carey expressed her feelings about her self-esteem, saying, ” I just feel like I am a regular human being and I deserve the same respect as anybody else. I have always had low self-esteem, and people do not recognize that.”

Social media and the people you may surround yourself by has a huge effect on self-esteem and can often cause people to go into a dark place. On that Carey says, “I do think to myself, ‘Did they mean this? Or do they not really mean it?’ And that is with everybody — it is not just with three people or just one.”

Carey explains how being biracial and not knowing where she fits in contributed to her low self-esteem. However, she says, “music became such a big part of my life because it helped me overcome those issues.”

Starting out in the music industry was tough for Carey. She remembers, “making demos in the middle of the night, sleeping on the floor in the studio, being broke with no food.”

Mariah Carey is currently touring with Lionel Richie for the All The Hits Tour.

    It’s truly amazing…the world we live in. Someone can have enough money to buy ANYTHING their heart desires, except happiness. That joy only comes from one source, too bad she may never know.

    I saw this in her a long time ago. She kept changing her personality, her style, her persona…I was like what is she going thur..The signs are All there…She needs counseling and some Soul swarching. Don’t be Afraid to BE YOU BUT YOU MUST FIRST FIND YOU AND LOVE YOU AND NEVER LET GO!!! BE BRAVE!!!😎

    I’ve always felt like she had some mental or insecurity issues. She seems to be very attention seeking, but I agree I love her earlier music also. No sympathy from me worth over 100 million dollars, buy you some esteem.

    There’s probably not a person alive who doesn’t have some type of insecurity about some area or part of their life. Mariah seems to me to be looking for sympathy and a little mercy from a her fans and others not to be too hard on her. I ain’t falling for the okie-doke, lil miss thang-thang is nothing more than a highly paid snob. Great singer, love her earlier music, but hate her funky attitude.
