Mariah Carey Personal Life
As a BBW (Big Beautiful Woman), Mariah became well-known for her curves as well as her vocal performances. Although she was never as large as other popular celebrities, Mariah decided to have gastric sleeve surgery after being repeatedly made fun of online. This resulted in her losing over 30 lbs! Still, it is a well-known fact that in 2015 and in-between relationships with singers, millionaires, and choreographers, she actually chose the best BBW dating app for her romantic needs and signed up for an online dating site.
Nowadays it is a no-brainer with dozens of reviews and ratings available online on dedicated dating review platforms. According to her online dating profile, the celebrity likes to cook, only dates guys from New York, and doesn’t mind younger fellas! Whether this was an honest attempt by the BBW to find love or simply a marketing scheme (she debuted the music video “Infinity” at the same time) remains a matter of opinion.

Mariah was married to Tommy Mottola from 1993 to 1998. She married Nick Cannon in 2008; they divorced in 2016. She has two children: Moroccan Scott Cannon & Monroe Cannon.
Mariah Carey Singing Career
She achieved initial success with her first album, “Mariah Carey,” which sold over 15 million copies worldwide & became the best-selling U.S. album of 1991. Her next album, “Emotions,” sold eight million copies around the world but wasn’t as successful as her first album. Carey’s third album, “Music Box,” became her best-selling album of all time, with over 28 copies being sold.
She then released “Merry Christmas” (1994) & “Daydream” (1995). “Daydream” is her best-selling album in the United States.

She released “Glitter” with Virgin Records (EMI Records) in April of 2001. Following “Glitter,” she released “Charmbracelet,” which many said was the worst performance of her career. However, her next album, “The Emancipation of Mimi,” once again put Carey at the top of the charts again. She released “ E=MC²” in 2008 and “Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel” in 2009. “Merry Christmas II You,” which was her second Christmas album, was released in 2010. Released in 2014, the album “The Art of Letting Go” was renamed “Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse”. Her latest album, “ Caution,” was released on November 16 of 2018. Alongside her music career, she has engaged in a number of side projects as well, such as her position on American Idol & a guest appearance on “American Dad.”
