Aged 19, Carey was discovered by Tommy Mottola, boss of the multi-national Columbia label. her he married her and he helped mould her into a superstar covered by "Alot of young women relate to these e signed her. introspective, really honest moments about childhood and overcomind After the rise came the inevitable fall: divorce, a (sort of) nervous breakdown, relative failure and ridicule. Finally, there is redemption via a musical renaissance culminating in her 10th album, The Emancipation Of Mimi. The only constant in the morality tale that is her life has been the constant sneering: she's dull, she's dim, she's a diva. "I don't understand that," she admits. "It's a sexist thing, honestly. If a man, say Mick Jagger, is regarded as a sex symbol- not that I'm calling myself a sex symbol, perish the thought - do people doubt that he writes and sings his songs as they do me? I bring the melody, I bring the concept and I bring the lyrics to my songs. I've always been fully involved in my music. Always." That may not be in doubt. Less clear is why she should be so staggeringly popular. After all, others have the looks and the songs and who wouldn't relish being greeted by a platoon of three-foot candles? "I don't know," she confesses. I've worked very hard, but because of my songwriting my fans relate to me on another level. They hear the personal songs such as Looking In from Daydream, Close My Eyes and Outside fronm Butterfly or Petals from Rainbow where I talk about things that have happened to me. A lot of young women relate to these introspective, really honest moments about childhood and overcoming difficulties. That's whyI have such a connection with my fans. "When people say 'your song got me through a moment of my life', that the validation, the real moment of glory, because you've actually touc somebody's life. I always said that if I became famous, it would validate my existence. It didn't. Instead, the fans compel me to keep going Those fans were desperately needed in her darkest hour. After a lavish ceremony in 1993, her marriage to the domineering Mottola soon turned sour "When you're married to someone who's also the head of your label; when his best friend is your lawyer and his lawyer; when your manager used to work for him and when everybody around you is on s payroll feat. What I'm really proud of is that I paid for half of everything in our mansion, down to the lighting bills and the water in the refrigerator. I knoww that I was never kept by anybody. Overall though, I really do look at what happened as a blessing because I had to go through everything so I could write about it and other people could find inspiration. I had to stop with all the worrying and rise above all the negativity that person had brought to my life and to the people around me. icult situation.

Having followed her wallet rather than her instinct, Carey was soon paid off and moved on. "Anybody would have taken that deal, but now I realise that Virgin weren't equipped to deal with the type of music I make." ract in istory. Her Virgin album, Glitter, was released on When she re-surfaced with 2002's Charmbracelet, "that whole moment was about this supposed breakdown. People wanted me to talk about it and to cry on television with Oprah. People were whispering 'be vulnerable in my ear. People cloud your perceptions sometimes especially when youu don't want them to think you're a difficult diva. Ultimately, you have to trust your gut The joyous experience that was recording The Emancipation Of Mimi (Mimi is her pet name) has completed her recovery. "I'm in the best state I've ever been in. I'm in a great moment. I'm very excited and it's a really great time for me." Not bad going for a woman who, when she isn't demanding red carpets, three-foot candles and breaking fingernails, legendarily refuses to use stairs. "Yeah right," she giggles. "I'm the complete opposite. Actually I've been stuck in elevators in Germany, in Japan and in my own apartment close to where the World Trade Center used to be, so I really, really hate elevators. "But I go in them when I have to. Here in Britain, the elevators seem to be much smaller than in America, so it gets me feeling even more uneasy. All the time I'm saying can't we just take the stairs?' I'm always about stairs unless it's 20 flights, l even use stairs when I'm in my heels.

Just ask rap kingpin Sean "Puffy" Combs "Female MCs always had it so hard-no respect-it was like thcy was livin' in Siberia, he says. "But it made 'em strong. Now their shit's so hot, they dont needa mike to be heard." In fact, soon every one will be hearing the new albums from hip-hop queens Mary J. Blige, Aaliyah, Lil' Kim, Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliott, and Da Brat, all friends as well as frequent collaborators. They're even making plans to take their act-The Bitch Tour-on the road with a funky twist on Lilith Fair, coming to a sold-out stadium near you. But dont call them divas (except perhaps for Ms. Blige, who cited personal drama at the last minute and was unable to attend the photo shoot). Mary J. Blige, 28.

I'm at such a place now, such a peace, I cannot be knocked down. Im Mary the lone woman. Mmm-hmmm," What becomes a diva most: "Someone who got through tough times and paid dues, like Tina Turner and Aretha Franklin. Good God, those were war storics they had to tell. Men wanted to rule them and treat them like shit, and they got through it." The Mary Jane girls: "People expect us to be com- petitive, but I didn't give Lauryn Hill her career-that was somethin' she worked for. And she didn't give me my career. Why should I think about competition if she got somethin' she could contribute to my project? I cannot be jealous. It's wasted energy. Ijust did a duet with the Queen of Soul herself, Miss Aretha Franklin I keep quiet when the veterans are in the room-and honey, she is a veteran.
