Mariah Carey Announces Album Title, Pulls Inspiration From Her 3-Year-Old Self

Published

After much thought and consideration, Mariah Carey has officially announced the title for her 14th studio album.

The singer released a teaser video announcing the title, which she tells Billboard was a “personal possession of mine that’s part of an entity that I’ve had almost all my life.”

Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse is taken from a self portrait drawn when Mariah was just a young child. “On the back cover of this album, is a personal treasure. This is my first and only self portrait. I drew it when I was only 3 1/2-years-old and entitled it Me. I Am Mariah,” the singer says in the video.

She continues, “It was a creative visualization of how I saw myself with the purity of a child’s heart before it was ever broken. I’ve kept this drawing private for so long, but because this album  is a reflection of some of the peaks and valleys that have made me who I am today, I’ve decided to share it with those of you who actually care and have been here for me through it all.”

“I am Mariah. Along the way there have been a couple nick names and I have been envertly embodied by different personas. Lately they’ve been calling me The Elusive Chanteuse.”

The album, which features Nas, Wale and Miguel, is set to drop May 27.

Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
