Jump To Mariah Carey's Stats
She may have her legs insured for a billion dollars and have a fleet of expensive cars available at her disposal, but cautious folks would never get in a car with Mariah Carey at the wheel. The uber songstress that can carve up a high note like no other hasn't been so lucky when it came time to pass her driver's test. It took three times before the platinum record-making diva passed. That hasn't stopped the curvaceous crooner from racking up a net worth of $483,170,700.
The Long Island, New York Lolita has the pipes that belie her talent. Carey has accumulated a total of 18 number one singles during her career. Second only to the Beatles, she ranks higher than Elvis' 17. Along the way, she has collected awards as if she was a recording star magnet. World Music Awards, Grammys, Billboard, and RIAA Awards represent her full court press to demonstrate that her renown vocal range of five octaves translates into selling records and albums like no other female singing star.
Her attempt on the silver screen hasn't gone over so well. With less than 10 attempts to capture her moving image for posterity, she has managed to acquire one award – The 2001 Golden Raspberry Award for her preformance in the film Glitter.
When it comes to acting in the family, her second husband, Nick Cannon holds the edge. His breakout performance in Drumline captured Carey's attention that ultimately ended up in the pair's nuptials. The couple are the proud parents of twins.
No matter what the critics say, Carey sells albums more than any other female performer in history. And a close reading of any critical review of her concerts, her albums or performance give the reader a sense that the writer has to stretch trying to find fault with her voice, pitch or timbre.
