Mariah Carey talks her personal traits of being considered a ditz, Marilyn Monroe, and growing up as a biracial child in an interview with Out.
Mariah, who covers the latest issue of the magazine says of being a ditz:
“I was a reader as a child, believe it or not,” she tells the magazine. “It doesn’t go with the ditzy image, I guess. I have too many highlights!”
“I flirt with it, and I play with it. If it pisses people off, whatever.”
On Marilyn Monroe:
“Marilyn Monroe Productions was the first female-owned production company in Hollywood. She paved the way for women in Hollywood, and every single woman owes something to her for that, whether they agree with her image or not."
On being biracial:
“Being biracial is so much a part of who I am that it’s almost, ‘let it go already,’” she tells Out. “But it’s intrinsic to me, but I think a lot of my fans relate to me because they felt different.”
