Things People Say

“I had to go through so much in my childhood just to feel worthy of existing. I felt so different from everybody else. To this day, I have very low self-esteem.” What celebrity, the product of a bi-racial marriage, says like her mother, she too experienced racism?

A. Halle Berry
B. Camila Alves
C. Mariah Carey
D. Jennifer Beals

In a recent interview with The Guardian, the pop star went into more depth about her bipolar diagnosis, her first marriage to record executive Tommy Motola and how her upbringing as a biracial child had major psychological damage on her later in life. “I felt so different from everybody else growing up, because I was biracial, because I was so ambiguous-looking and because we didn’t have the money to escape whatever the everyday realities of life were.”
