It may be one of the most famous songs of all time and certainly its most iconic, but it turns out that Mariah Carey was not always a fan of All I Want for Christmas. In a new interview for Billboard, the singer became candid and revealed that when she first recorded, the song made her feel “irritated!”
Thinking back to the classic holiday song and music video, Mariah started by saying it was really “festive” before admitting that there are some things she still doesn’t like.
“I don’t like every photo in this video,” she revealed.
Not to like certain elements of a clip from the 90s, especially when it presents you, is not so surprising.
What may have taken people by surprise, however, is the fact that she also told Billboard that ‘Originally, I would just do a little pat’ All I want for Christmas is you’. Not about the song itself, but about the voice: ‘Why don’t I solve this? Why didn’t I do this? ”
According to the singer, certain parts of the song “irritated her”!
But there is no reason to be disappointed if you really like this song, as it happens to have loved it over the years as well.
“Now I live with it and I love it. It’s the first Christmas song I wrote and it makes me happy every year. When people tell me that I am part of their holiday celebrations and that I am part of their holiday memories… when I meet small children and they sing the song to me and they are, like, four years old, it’s the most incredible feeling of all time! “Said Mariah to the media.
