あらすじ・解説

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. 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 10-minute television interview. And even then, my words were filtered through someone else’s lens, largely satisfying someone else’s assignment to define me. 

This book is composed of my memories, my mishaps, my struggles, my survival, and my songs. Unfiltered. I went deep into my childhood and gave the scared 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. 

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

サバイバー

シンデレラストーリーの裏にこんな波乱万丈な人生があったとは!他のスターの自伝も読んだことありますが、彼女はかなり壮絶な人生ですね。彼女が幸運の星の下に生まれたことは間違いありませんが、神から授かった才能を余すことなくファンに捧げる並外れた努力が良く伝わります。読むより、聴く方が早く、しかもナレーションがアカペラ満載なので、ファンにとってはマストですね。アメリカと同時リリースしてくれた日本のAudibleに感謝です。本の方も買いましたが、やはり、声が命の人ですね。ナレーションの声も良く、飽きずに2晩かけて聴きました。また、何度も聴きたいと思います。

Entertaining glitz glam smoke and mirrors - not the whole story.

This is Mariah’s story - I wish she addressed her bipolar diagnosis in 2001 and her subsequent admission almost 20 years later so much seems missing because she leaves this part out. It feels like she’s denying a part of it and because of that I feel like I didn’t get to really know who this woman is - only who she wants us to be. She presents as a victim often. Most impressive is her commanding storytelling which is enveloping and immersive. The audio performance is relaxing and thrilling to hear her sing often as well as her moving reading of many emotionally heavy parts.

Phenomenal

Mariah... we may have thought we knew her but until you have completed this book, you do not know her. The glitz and glam have covered up years of hurt and betrayal but with the help of good friends, her faith, family, and fans, Mariah overcome many obstacles. I’m proud to be a Lamb. Mariah, thank you for allowing us into your life. This is a beautiful book!

World vs Mariah

First let me say I’ve been a HUGE fan of Mariah’s for like 30+ years. But I have to just put this out there. Title should be “Mariah: Through the Lens of Race” or “The World vs. Mariah”. She’s very quick to write off her white mother because her mother dared scold her for laughing at her mom’s singing; however, her black father is portrayed in an almost heroic figure even though he was violent at times. It feels like, at time, she’s trying very hard prove that white people have been very bad throughout her life. Also, everything is a slight toward her. I’d like to hear the other perspectives of how they feel things went down. The story of the kindergarten student teacher and two other adults at the school berating her for “using the wrong color crayon” to color her father seems very unlikely to have happened the way she remembers it. I don’t think I’m going to be able to finish the book, especially if it doesn’t change in tone. I’m currently at almost 4 hours in.

Holy Crap it's Really Her!

I can't believe she's reading it herself! I will own a physical copy but until it arrives I thought why not use a credit to have it on my phone 🤷‍♀️ I never thought it would be her actually reading it herself but boy what a surprise and a treat! No one holds a flame to Mariah and could never tell her story they way she would/ can /did! I feel like I have the best of both worlds, a tangible book to cherish and the author, & my favorite person of all time, reading it to me on the go! This project was a long time coming and will crush all the little "unofficial" biographies I used to buy as a kid so I'm ready to have my wig snatched! Thank you God for small miracles in the midst of one of the globally agreed worst years of the century! 🙏❤🐑

The Emancipation of One Mariah Carey

Mariah The Carey, or Mimi as her closest friends call her delivers a gripping tale but not one of two cities. No, in fact, The Meaning of Mariah Carey takes you a journey of her most personal moments and her most public hour. She regales the life of a wayward biracial child who never knew how to fit in and perhaps never needed to fit in because she, was meant for far greater isles. From racists children to possessive manchilds, from having nothing and no one to having all she wanted for Christmas, this scared little girl just wanted to sing and be free to play in her musical sandbox. Mariah is at her most vulnerable and most POWERFUL as she unravels and upends all that we (well the media) thought they knew about who and what she is. In undergoing this road long travelled, you will gain a fair bit of acknowledgment, sympathy, and remorse of who she is but do not get it twisted, Mimi does not need your tears or pity. Afterall she's a born DIVA, an Aries Dahling! This book is a true gift to the Lambs (her fans) and even to those who may not have thought she had much depth and nuance behind that fiery persona; she's so much more! Mariah will undoubtedly go down as one of the Greatest Vocal legends of our time, eh of several decades. What's a decade again?

Pre-ordered immediately and I don't regret it.

Long-term fan of Mariah. She seems to be in such a good place the past couple of years, which is heart-warming. I admire her resilience and work ethic so much, she's inspirational to me. Beautifully and candidly told in Mariah's gorgeous speaking voice. This dive into her childhood struggles and the ups and downs of her adult life and career gives deeper context to her massive anthology of songs, so many of which are revealed to be more personal and based on her real life than we thought.

Thank you Mariah for being the woman you are and yet again showing us what a strong beautiful person you truly are. I really hope that your stories of your struggles with racist people opens others eyes to how cruel And damaging being racist is to those receiving the hate. I pray it’s one step closer to love and acceptance from all and to all of human race. 🦋love always Abbie 🦋

Living life from Christmas to Christmas

This is the heavily promoted autobiography of Mariah Carey narrated by the author including sections in this audio version where she sings excerpts from her songs to punctuate her life story. We hear how young Mariah, being of mixed heritage, grew up in a mainly white neighbourhood and her early encounters with racism and the pain, resentment and jealousy she experienced as a result of her parents splitting. Despite being scared and scarred, Mariah took comfort in her singing. She vowed never to be promiscuous and avoided and refused drugs. She arrived penniless in New York City with one pair of shoes and took waitress jobs to get by. There is little in these memoirs regarding exactly how she made it to the big time, presumably being married to her first husband Tommy Mottola, CEO of Sony Music, must have helped her in her early days. Following her relationship break-up with her husband and the breakdown of her relationship with her mother, Mariah turned to God. We hear how she continues to work daily on her emotional recovery and her life has become a psychological thriller. Mariah Carey is not shy when it comes to talking about her achievements in the music industry and she rattles off impressive sales statistics for each record through her career. Mariah Carey is undoubtedly talented and comes over as you would expect; confident, forthright, and, yes, a bit of a diva.

Enchanting and raw

This is probably the best advertisement for audiobooks that you can get. The amount of care put into this audiobook conversion helps it stand on its own as a separate body of work from the memoir. The musical flourishes, the cracks in her voice, the mischievous intonation at certain key points in the story really take the emotion and meaning of the text to a whole new level.

Mariah on Fiyah

This was the best audible book I've ever purchased. I've been a major Mariah fan (who isn't) since she started her career, but to have heard her story, I cannot believe what she has endured in her lifetime already and my respect for her is now sky high. She's an earth angel, who's voice, storytelling and message has blessed us all earth side. Love Mariah & thank you for sharing, lifetime fan from New Zealand 💜

A true Lamb-maker

This book has given me GREAT insight into the past and the life of the Songbird Supreme. While I was saddened greatly of how her childhood went, and felt immense fury towards the people who did her wrong, I come out of this book feeling inspired to do better and never let anyone control what I want to do in my life. Mariah Carey, I thank you so much for sharing your life story. It has turned me into a full bonafide Lamb. 🐑

A beautiful memoir

Mariah Carey has been a part of my life since I was a young girl... Her lyrics have gotten me through many lows from being bullied as a child, to loosing my father. She has been there for my highs such as being a part of my wedding. This book has been a pleasure to listen to, she is amazing! I have laughed, cried and cheered for her through this whole read. I've felt closer to her as I understand the deeper meaning behind her lyrics... I listen to her daily and to have her be so open about her life is just another layer of amazingness! She also has an amazing voice reading, her soul pours through her words. An amazing read!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I have been a fan of Mariah Carey’s from the very beginning. This book revealed so many facets of her life. It made me laugh and also brought a tear to my eyes on several occasions. She is one tough “cookie”! It was wonderful and such a privilege to have this insight into her incredible journey and career. I have to admit I was a little sad when it was finished.

I didn't know much about Mariah before this and it was different to what I was expecting. I definitely respect how strong and hard working and of course talented she is.
