“I started this camp 25 years ago and if you don’t see what an accomplishment that is for a 2-year old child,” the iconic singer joked in regards to her age.
“I was 18 years old when I got my first record deal,” Carey said. “A lot of very powerful men controlled my career – what I wore, who I worked with, and every aspect of my overall image. Believe me, that can be very intimidating and confining to a young girl just getting started, trying to express herself artistically. It took a lot of hard work, inner strength and believing in myself, but slowly I gained the courage to emerge from that stifling control by a group of men.”
Carey states the experience assisted her in motherhood, specifically understanding what will impact her daughter’s life.
