Mariah felt ugly being black

Posted January 18, 2010 by JJSaidIt Staff |Category: Mariah Carey



As Tupac would say…"what makes you ashamed of being black".


The ‘Hero’ singer – whose mother is Irish-American and her father was an African-American of Venezuelan descent – claims she never fitted in at school because of her heritage, leaving her very insecure about the way she looks.



She said: "I am very insecure about my looks, and I always have been because of being part black with mixed race. It’s not so weird now, and everyone’s accepting it in a big way, but as a child I felt very, um, out of place and didn’t feel pretty."



"When you grow up with that type of insecurity you don’t always feel pretty."

Mariah began to realize she was different from other children when she took her white best friend on one of her weekly visits to see her father.



She told Observer Woman Magazine: "She got out of the car and went up the stairs to his house and he was over 6ft tall and very handsome, but to her he must have really been scary because I don’t know that she’d ever seen a black man before. And she looked at him, her mouth went open and she started screaming and crying".
