Thalia Talks Mariah in New Autobiography

>> Wednesday, January 4, 2012


International superstar Thalia, who is currently married to Mariah's ex-husband Tommy Mottola, recently released her autobiography Growing Stronger. (Cada dia mas fuerte in Spanish) In it, she briefly talks about Mariah. Many thanks to Eric for sharing the text and translating it to English for us!

Original text, in Spanish :

Cuando le dijeron a Tommy que yo era actriz y cantante, casi me deja plantada en el restaurante. Se habia separado para luego divorciarse hacia solo unos anos de Mariah
Carey y lo menos que queria era meterse con otra cantante; mucho menos, con una actriz. Y encima, que no hablaba su idioma. Pero el y yo estabamos predestinados. No
habia forma de sacarle la vuelta.

De hecho, cuando supe que el era el ex marido de Mariah Carey me causo mucha gracia porque yo no tenia ni idea de quien era el hasta que ate ese cabo. Ademas, siempre
admire mucho a Mariah como cantante. Es mas, me encantaba su musica. Es una pionera que marco una diferencia en el estilo vocal y sobre todo en las baladas, con esas subidas de tono tan unicas y caracteristicas de ella. Y por supuesto que con el manager, presidente de su compania disquera en ese entonces, Tommy Mottola, logicamente todo estaba a su favor para lograr la fama que logro. Sigo pensando que es una mujer con un talento digno de admiracion. El arreglo floral mas grande y bello que recibi cuando nacio nuestra hija Sabrina fue el de ella.


English translation :

When they told Tommy that I was an actress and a singer, he almost left me there waiting at the restaurant. He got divorced from Mariah Carey just a couple of years before we met, and the last thing he had on his mind was to get involved with another singer, and even less with an actress. Even worse, a woman who didn't even speak his own language. But we were meant to be together. There was no way out. In fact, when I got to know he was Mariah Carey's ex husband, it made me laugh a little, because I didn't have a clue who he was until I got to know he was married to Mariah.

I always admired Mariah as a singer so much. In fact, I loved her music. She's a pioneer who marked a difference with her vocal range, and with her ballads specially, with her unique high notes that are so characteristic of her. And of course with Tommy Mottola as her manager, and president of her record label at that time, logically everything was on her side to become so famous. I still think she's a woman with a talent that deserves admiration. The biggest and most beautiful flowers that I received were the ones she sent when our daughter Sabrina was born.
