In her 2020 memoir, The Meaning of Mariah Carey, the singer talked about her violent childhood.  She wrote about Morgan Carey, her “broken” brother, who was allegedly so “abusive” that she once had to call the police to stop him from hurting their mother. The singer wrote,

“Choking in tears, I did my best to calmly tell her, ‘My brother really hurt my mother, and I’m home alone. Please come help.’ One of the cops, looking down at me but speaking to another cop beside him, said, ‘If this kid makes it, it’ll be a miracle.’ And that night, I became less of a kid and more of a miracle.”

She also wrote about her older sister, Alison Carey, who allegedly drugged her with a whole Valium when she was only 12 and left her with one of her sister’s boyfriends.

The singer grew up in the Long Island neighborhood of Huntington. She talked about growing up as a biracial kid in a predominately white neighborhood. She said,

“There were no role models for people who were clearly mixed or, you know, light-skinned or whatever we were categorizing it as then, so I didn’t know who to look up to when I was growing up. It was difficult.”

The singer recently performed her Christmas classic, All I Want For Christmas Is You, at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade alongside her two children, Moroccan and Monroe.
