When it comes to confidence, few women can top the pop music icon that is Mariah Carey.
Throughout her career, the recording artist has been recognized with her chart-topping hits. However, success didn’t come easy for the songstress. Carey admits that she has gone through the same struggles as other women in the entertainment industry for decades.
In an interview with Variety, Carey spoke up about the uncomfortable situations she’s been thrown in, including her own #MeToo experiences.
“As a woman, yeah, I’ve been in situations where I’m looking at stuff now going, ‘Oh my god, this happened to me, that happened to me. I totally relate to this woman’s experience,'” she tells the entertainment publication. “I just went along with it. I didn’t necessarily go along with it in a complete way, but I was like, ‘Oh, this person just tried to have a moment with me, without being too specific, in the studio, in the dark, and then I laughed my way out of it,’ but I think that’s just my mechanism that I turn on. So these things have happened to me, yeah.”
In addition, Carey also took the opportunity to give credit to the women who came forward amid the polarizing movement that paved the way to change in the industry.
“I really respect the women that have come forward and paved the way so that the newer generation of women don’t have to do deal with this and know they don’t have to deal with this,” the “Obsessed” hitmaker adds.
