Mariah Carey’s mother inspired her to be a singer
The ‘We Belong Together’ hitmaker has admitted she has “always” had a “love affair” with music, but her parent was the driving force behind her successful career, which has spanned over two-decades, because she encouraged her to belt out songs since she was four years old.

Speaking about her career on her programme ‘Mariah’s World’, which will air on Sunday (04.12.16), the blonde beauty said: “I’ve always had this love affair with music, ever since I can remember. When I was like four years old, my mother encouraged me to sing.”

And the powerhouse has revealed despite starting off as a backing singer at 12 years old, and moving to live in Manhattan on her own where she claimed she had “nothing”, she found it an “exciting time” in her life, although she had to sleep on the floor for a while.

She explained: “I started doing demos when I was like 12 years old, I was a backup singer. I moved to Manhattan alone as a teenage girl. It was an exciting time for me, even though I had nothing.

“I lived like on a mattress on the floor. I was writing my songs and being a horrible waitress. My demo tape ended up at Sony and they signed it away.”

And Mariah – who recently called off her engagement to the businessman James Packer – has revealed her and her musically-minded nephew Shawn boast a “great relationship” because they know how it feels to “come from nothing” and build their way up.

The vocalist – who has five-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe with her ex-husband Nick Cannon – explained: “I think me and Shawn have a great relationship because we both understand what it’s like to literally come from nothing.

“We did not grow up this way, people have to understand this.”

World’s biggest Mrs Doubtfire fan has door SLAMMED in his face after a 5000-mile pilgrimage

A superfan of the film Mrs Doubtfire travelled to the US to catch see the iconic family home from the movie in real life – but was left gutted when the famous front door was shut in his face.
Declan Hattie, from Scotland, has watched the 1993 Robin Williams film over 100 times, and planned a pilgrimage to the hallowed home for his 21st birthday.
He travelled 5000 miles with his mum Caroline, 47, to view the San Francisco townhouse featured in the film, which became an impromptu shrine to Williams after his death in 2014.

But to Declan’s horror, the property had been sold last month, and they arrived just as new owners were moving in to the £3.3million home. And they were not pleased to see a Mrs Doubtfire fan hanging around outside.
A woman pointed at Declan and Caroline and minutes later, the blinds were closed and the doors slammed shut. Declan, from Carfin, Lanarkshire, said: “It was not as if we were going to do anything. We just wanted a picture outside and had no intention of going in.”
To add insult to injury, the presence of the removal men going in and out ruled out any chance of a decent selfie.

Declan, who had gone to great lengths to track down the right house, said: “Going to the house was an anti-climax and we were left thinking, ‘Is that it?’ I was a wee bit gutted.”
Any hopes of a decent selfie outside were also dashed as there were house-movers coming and going with heavy furniture.
Declan said: “When you think of the journey we had made you would think the house would just be sitting there. I didn’t expect to see anybody moving into it. We hovered and hovered and I think the folk outside were getting suspicious because we were lingering.”

The first challenge they had faced in the US was finding the iconic property after catching a bus from Union Square through Downtown.
Declan said: “The film was really big and I thought that would be reflected in the tourist industry but it is not really mentioned at all as part of the tour bus programme.
“Steiner Street is one of the longest streets in San Francisco. It’s a neighbourhood so there are no cafes or restaurants and no WiFi. We were asking locals but nobody knew what we were talking about. I thought ‘You’re having a laugh’.”

Eventually Declan had to text his partner Jonathan Larkins, 20, and friend Erin Poutney, 21, back in Scotland. And Jonathan was first to respond with the address in Steiner Street.
Unfortunately, Declan and his mum were at the wrong end of the street at the time and had to walk 40 minutes to reach the house.
Just to add to their woes, they witnessed a youth getting arrested after he leapt over the fence of a gated community as they walked to the house.
Declan said: “When we eventually got there I thought ‘That’s not it, surely?’ It was a real disappointment.”
