The meaning of Mariah Carey
like never before, but on TV sets, where she promotes the book, the interpreter of
is just as cash.
This is how she told how her sister tried to sell her to a pimp, during her stint in
The Oprah conversation
, as ET Online relays.
"When I was 12, my sister (Allison) drugged me with valium, presented me with a pink nail full of cocaine, burned me in the third degree and tried to sell me to a pimp," Oprah Winfrey read on set, to the diva's approval.

I couldn't have asked for a better way to introduce my memoir than having a conversation with my friend, therapist and icon Ms. @oprah, on her series @theoprahconversation.

An "extremely violent" brother
Mariah Carey adds that her sister was "disturbed and traumatized" and also claims in her book that her brother, Morgan, was "extremely violent".
Behaviors that she explains by their childhood, different from hers.
Her brother and sister are respectively ten and seven years older than her: the singer told Oprah Winfrey that they were "already damaged" when she came into the world.
Mariah Carey also refers to them as "ex-brother" and "ex-sister," and says they sold many stories about her to the tabloids.
As for her relationship with her mother, whom she calls by her first name (Patricia), the singer considers them "always complicated".
Nevertheless, Mariah Carey is not resentful.
“I tried to be fair (in writing his memoir).
(…) When you succeed, you become a target, you become vulnerable.
But I wouldn't have come to this if I hadn't been done all these things, if I hadn't been dragged through the mud, if I hadn't been treated by some people like a cash machine with a wig on your head, ”said Mariah Carey.
