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 JUST A BABY.
THEY SAY A SELF PORTRAIT STEALS
YOUR SOUL, BUT I SAY, WELL,
YOU HAVE TO HAVE A
SOUL TO BEGIN WITH.
I TITLED IT,
"ME. I AM MARIAH."
(BACKGROUND VOICE WHISPERS)
I AM MARIAH.
BECAUSE THAT'S THE FIRST THING I
SAY WHEN I WAKE UP IN THE MORNING
AFTER THE SCREAMING STOPS.
PLEASE DON'T JUDGE ME FOR
SUCH A SIMPLISTIC DRAWING.
WHEN YOU CONSIDER THAT I DID IT
WHEN I WAS A CHILD IT'S CLEAR
THAT I WAS AND AM A GENIUS.
IT'S A CREATIVE VISUALIZATION OF
HOW WOULD'VE LOOKED IF I HAD
BLOND STRAIGHT HAIR WHEN I WAS A
CHILD. I'VE KEPT THIS STORY IN
PRIVATE FOR SO LONG. IS IT A
STORY EVEN? IS IT MORE OF A
FABLE, OR FAIRY TALE? A LEGEND?
I HAVE A THESAURUS. I'M SO VERY
PROUD OF IT. THIS ALBUM IS A
REFLECTION OF SOME OF THE PEAKS AND
VALLEYS THAT HAVE MADE ME WHO I AM
TODAY. A TWEEN WHO LOVES
BUTTERFLIES AND RENEWING
VALLEYS. ANYWAY, I'VE DECIDED TO
SHARE IT WITH THOSE OF YOU WHO
ACTUALLY CARE, AND HAVE BEEN
(CREEPY CHILD LAUGHS IN THE BACKGROUND)
HERE THROUGH IT ALL. BEEN THROUGH A
LOT BUT I'VE ALWAYS KNOWN ME.
(BACKGROUND VOICE WHISPERS ALONG)
ME. I AM MARIAH.
ALONG THE WAY THERE HAVE BEEN A
COUPLE OF NICKNAMES: MO, MIMI,
EDWARD SNOWDEN. LATELY
THEY'VE BEEN CALLING ME
THE ELUSIVE CHANTEUSE, BECAUSE
THAT'S A THING THAT PEOPLE DO
CALL OTHER PEOPLE
WHO THEY ARE LIKE.
