6. [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Mariah Carey[/lastfm] — Mimi
When Mariah released her album, The Emancipation of Mimi, everyone just assumed she was using it as an outlet to express her dual-personality.
But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Mariah maintains that Mimi is more of a nickname rather than an entirely different persona.
It’s not like Mimi is some alter ego or character, but really more the true person as opposed to the celebrity. It’s a very personal nickname. Only people who are really close to me use it.
Nickname or not, Mariah showed off her more intimate side in the video for “We Belong Together.”
