Mariah Carey obviously has a lot of experience in the music industry — which is exactly why she reached out to Britney Spears about her conservatorship battle.
The legendary singer recently told NME that she hit up Spears with a message for her amidst her struggles. “I think everybody on this planet deserves to be free and what they did to her, what I saw, was horrific,” Mariah said.
So I reached out to her through a mutual friend because I wanted her to know: ‘Guess what? You’re not alone.'”
Mariah said that her decision to reach out to Britney was inspired by some sage wisdom from the Purple One himself. “I remember when I was going through a lot of stuff years ago,” she recalled. “Prince reached out to me and gave me a Bible and he talked to me for hours.”
“He’s an amazing person and he cared about the music business and the industry being so screwed up—which it is,” she continued.
“You’ve got to be a giving person. It doesn’t matter whether they’re my best friend or whatever, I just felt like it was the right thing to do.”
