Carey revealed to OUT Magazine in a 2014 cover story that instead of recognizing her age each year, she celebrates anniversaries of her 12th birthday, “Darling, I’m eternally 12-years-old.”

“As a kid I literally made this pact,” she added. “There had been some sort of argument with my mom and the man she was dating at the time, and somehow I became a part of it—I was around 8 or 9 years old, and I said, ‘I’m never going to forget how it feels to be a kid, and you can’t be seen or heard.’ It’s as though your opinion doesn’t mean anything, or your feelings are not real.”
