Mariah Carey recently told Parade magazine that she is thankful for the troubles she faced as a bi-racial child. Because of her struggles, she believes that she was able to connect with many fans with a similar social identity–those who identified themselves as outcasts. “A lot of kids have said that to me, ‘Until you put your first record out, I didn’t feel like there was anybody that was the same as me.'”
She has also functioned as a role model for all those women out there with giant breasts with a penchant for tiny clothes. It’s like she’s the Rosa Parks of scantily dressed ladies.
