Mariah Carey has officially finished writing her new memoir, and is eager to get it out to the world! The book, titled The Meaning Of Mariah Carey, will allow readers an inside and behind-the-scenes look at the lavish life of a diva!
The book will follow the pop sensation's journey from childhood nobody to award-winning pop star. Issued in a press release, the book was described as, "an improbable and inspiring journey of survival and resilience as she struggles through complex issues of race, identity, class, childhood and family trauma during her meteoric rise to music superstardom."
Mariah Carey shares her story
Mariah Carey is hopeful this book will share her story through her own lens, and not that of the media.
Continued in the release, it read, "By pulling back the curtain on perceptions often told through the filtered lens of media, Carey bravely and beautifully walks through her battles with gender and power dynamics, emotional abuse, public embarrassments, personal failures and phenomenal victories."
"In her own words and song lyrics, Carey reveals untold moments and intimate experiences along with anecdotes of sacred moments with iconic figures to craft an honest, unique and vivid portrait of her extraordinary life," the release continued.
On Wednesday, the singer posted to Instagram to celebrate the completion of the book and shared with fans the difficult yet rewarding path she took to complete the memoir.
"It took me a lifetime to have the courage and clarity to write my memoir. I want to tell the story of the moments," Carey began. "The ups and downs, the triumphs and traumas, the debacles and the dreams that contributed to the person I am today."
"The 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," she continued.
Adding how difficult it was, the singer also reveals that it was truly rewarding, saying, "Writing this memoir was incredibly hard, humbling and healing."
Carey concluded, "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."
The Meaning Of Mariah Carey is set to be released on September 29 of this year and is already available for pre-order.
