Mariah Carey Is Set to Release Her Memoir, The Meaning of Mariah, This Fall


Mariah Carey is ready to tell her story, her way.

The best-selling singer and songwriter revealed on social media that she had finished working on her upcoming memoir, The Meaning of Mariah, set to release on September 29 by Andy Cohen Books. The book, which will cover Carey’s rise to stardom, her public relationships, personal struggles, and more, was written in collaboration with fashion journalist and activist Michaela Angela Davis.

“It took me a lifetime to have the courage and the clarity to write my memoir. I want to tell the story of the moments—the ups and downs, the triumphs and traumas, the debacles and the dreams, that contributed to the person I am today,” wrote Carey in an open letter to fans, teasing the book’s arrival.

“This book is composed of my memories, my mishaps, my struggles, my survival and my songs,” Carey revealed. She added later in her letter, “Writing this memoir was incredibly hard, humbling and healing. My sincere hope is that you are moved to a new understanding, not only about me but also about the resilience of the human spirit.”

Per Rolling Stone, Carey will also perform the memoir’s accompanying audiobook, in which musical moments will be woven into her narration of her story.

The Meaning of Mariah‘s release coincides with the 30-year anniversary of Carey’s self-titled debut album. Since then, the star has gone on to sell more than 200 million records, has taken home five Grammy Awards, has created arguably the most popular Christmas song of all time, and will soon be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
