Is Mariah Carey Gay?
No, Mariah Carey is not gay. She has always been made to face allegations that stated that she was secretly into women until she decided to come out about it. She specifically stated that she is not gay and that she does not care if people are happy spreading such rumors and it irrespective of all, it is still going to be false.
She further stated that it could be because she does not discriminate amongst people whom she considers or calls a friend. She is friends with gay women and that does not matter to her. She further added that their random speculations do not make her upset and she could not care less if a lie that she is gay would make her seem more excited.
Furthermore, she insisted that she is absolutely supportive of gay rights and is in favor of their basic rights campaign. At this point in time when being gay is not a tag but actually just a normal course of one’s life Mariah Carey is considered a Gay Icon. She has always been an active supporter of the LGBTQ+ community and that is very evident in her statements too.
As a human being, Mariah has faced a lot of her own troubles too. She was treated differently because of the fact that she was biracial and due to the fact that she had money issues. She has written songs from a perspective that is different because of the fact that she knew what it felt like to be treated differently.
Her songs tended to have a deeper meaning to them and the feelings that she portrayed in the songs successfully reached out to a huge bunch taking her to the point where she now belongs.
