Though Mariah Carey has been in the spotlight for a long time, she wants to make sure her two children, Moroccan And Monroeto follow their heart as they get older.

“Honey, look, I know a lot of times people are like, ‘Oh, yay! Look at her! It’s, like, so festive and such a Christmas girl‘or anything else. But really, Christmas makes me happy. People think I had this princess life or whatever, kind of a fairytale existence that I just emerged into, like, “Here I am!” And that’s not what it is. I doubt you have enough time to write about any of this, so we won’t talk about it. But when you grow up with a messed up life and then you’re able to have this transformation where you can make your life the way you want it to be? This is joy for me. That’s why I want my children to have everything they can have. I want them to be able to understand that they can be anything they want to be,” she said In magazines.

“It was extremely dysfunctional childhoodto the point where it’s shocking that she pulled it off,” Carey explained. “There weren’t any role models for people who were clearly mixed or, you know, light-skinned or whatever we were classifying it as back then, so I didn’t know who to look up to when I was growing up. It was hard.”

After surviving tough days, the ‘Hero’ singer is hoping to spend time with her kids.

So songs are just 15-second snippets to them,” she said.

“But I have several different playlists that I play all the time. I try to get them to listen to some of my favorite artists that they may not have heard or may never hear if they were just to hear those snippets. I’ll ask them questions and say, ‘OK , who’s singing?’ And most of the time, they get it right Prince or Stevie Wonder. IS Aretha Franklin. There is chakhan. And I’m like, ‘You have to listen to the tone of voice. Listen to how they sing,” she added.
