Carey’s abduction fantasy

LONDON: Pop star Mariah Carey reveals that she used to fantasise about being kidnapped when she was going through the bad phase of her life. reports her saying, “When I was in an unhappy place in my life, I always wanted to be kidnapped. I just wanted a way out, but I didn’t have one.”

It seems her dream came true when husband Nick Cannon kidnapped her and took her on a romantic trip. “He sort of kidnapped me and took me on a helicopter ride. Then he proposed.”

Quashing rumours that her marriage is in trouble, she said, “It is definitely the best place I’ve ever been in my life. If you really look at my life, I’ve never had a personal life, or if I did, it was just wearing a mask and it was not existing... I put my career ahead of my personal life because I think I didn’t know that I was deserving of both, because that was just how I always felt about myself. That was just my own insecurity and land in which I live.”
