Mariah Carey graced The Daily Show With Trevor Noah with a visit on Thursday (Oct. 1) to chat all about her new memoir, The Meaning of Mariah Carey, and album, The Rarities.
During the socially-distanced interview, the icon opened up to host Trevor Noah about the racism she experienced growing up mixed race -- including one particularly disturbing memory she recounts in her book about being invited to a birthday party as a child, only to be locked in a room and repeatedly called the n-word by her peers.
"Yes, that was a very harrowing experience," she said. "I don't know that I ever felt the need to talk to anybody about it because I don't feel like I'm the only person in the world that ever went through something traumatic. But that was very specific."
