I think we can all agree that Mariah Carey is one of the top female performers.

In 2001 she reportedly did some strange things like running naked in NYC, acting like she was high on a set of a video etc. Well Mariah is opening up about her hard battle with mental illness. She shared with People magazine that she was first diagnosed with bipolar ll disorder in 2001 when she was hospitalized for a mental and emotional breakdown.

Mariah Said….

“I didn’t want to carry around the stigma of a lifelong disease that would define me and potentially end my career,” she told the magazine. “I was so terrified of losing everything.” It took a lot for the singer to bravely speak about mental illness and try to make a difference for those to come.

What other news did she share with the magazine?  We got to get it and find out
