Pop diva Mariah Carey suffered from a “complex” about her face when she was young, and only allowed photos of her to be taken from a certain side. The 40-year-old singer admitted she became self-conscious after somebody at her record company pointed out some flaws.

“I remember starting out and being at a record company at 19 and having someone tell me, ‘This is your good side and this is your bad side. Don’t ever let anyone take pictures of you from that side. You look terrible from that side’, and so on. It created this whole complex,” said Carey.

The Honey singer’s mother is Irish-American and her father an African-American of Venezuelan descent. “I felt very different as a bi-racial person,” she said.
