The music industry is full of hugely talented and successful stars, and while some of these stars see their career fizzle out almost as quickly as it started, there are others who have been working in the business for decades. Mariah Carey is one of the biggest music stars to ever work in the business, winning five Grammy Awards during her career, and she has now been giving her views on the Grammys.
Carey said, "In the music business, if you care about the Grammys and submitting your stuff before a certain time frame, you want a single out in the summer. And then you want to have a record [out] before the Grammys [consideration] deadline, which has changed. Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn. I mean, I have five Grammys. That’s cute. There’s people that have been doing this half the time that have twice as many."
She added, "I won two Grammys the first year I started, but after that, [the Grammys] are like, ‘We don’t go with the people that are selling a lot of records and are popular; we’re gonna go the opposite way.’ So, I got screwed out of certain years. I wasn’t bitter about it. I was just like, okay, well, I guess I’m not standing here barefoot onstage singing and trying to go a certain way. I’m just me."
Well, while Mariah Carey suggests she is not bothered about the Grammy Awards, we have no doubt that she would be more than happy to take one home again if she was to win another in the future.
