Mariah Carey Tried ‘Jumping Out Of A Moving Car’ During Emotional Breakdown
“I Lived In Denial And Isolation”
Carey has previously opened up about her diagnosis with bipolar disorder in a 2018 interview with People.
She admitted that she “didn’t want to believe” her situation when she was told about the diagnosis.
“Until recently I lived in denial and isolation and in constant fear someone would expose me,” Carey told People. “It was too heavy a burden to carry and I simply couldn’t do that anymore. I sought and received treatment, I put positive people around and I got back to doing what I love — writing songs and making music.”
The mom-of-two has been in therapy and takes medications for her bipolar disorder.
“I’m actually taking medication that seems to be pretty good. It’s not making me feel too tired or sluggish or anything like that. Finding the proper balance is what is most important,” Carey told People.
Despite the drama surrounding Glitter the first time around, the soundtrack made an extraordinary comeback by making it to #1 on the iTunes chart, 17 years after the film debuted.
In anticipation of Carey’s new album, Caution, her devoted fans, affectionately called the Lambily, decided to buy the 2001 soundtrack using the hashtag #JusticeforGlitter to spread the word.
The singer was sure to thank her lambs on Twitter, tweeting, “I have to dedicate today’s #tbt to Glitter, which is currently #1 on the iTunes albums chart, 17 years after its release and on the eve of my new album release! My fans are THE BEST #JusticeForGlitter!! LET’S GO #CAUTION“
