(CNN) — Mariah Carey is coming clean.
The singer is releasing a memoir called “The Meaning of Mariah Carey.”
Carey says she wanted to “tell the story of the moments, the ups and downs, the triumphs and traumas.”
The book will focus on Carey’s childhood, adolescence all the way through her superstar career. Carey said finishing the memoir was “hard, humbling and healing.”
Michaela Angela Davis cowrote the book with Carey. It is expected to release in September.
