Why Mariah Will Always Be Grateful to Tommy Mottola

Tommy Mottola and Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey and Tommy Mottola’s marriage may not have ended on a happy note, but there’s still one piece of advice Carey will always treasure from her ex-husband.

Mrs. Cannon revealed that it was Mottola’s idea to record her classic Merry Christmas album, which spawned the holiday staple “All I Want for Christmas Is You.” “I didn’t want to do a Christmas album. It was Tommy’s idea,” she told Liz Smith. “And I was all, ‘Please, I’m a young girl. People don’t do Christmas albums until they are, like, 50. Some sort of last resort.’ But he insisted. ‘No, no. Do it. It’ll be a big hit.’ So I did and it was, and I’ll always be grateful for that.”

She is also planning a new Christmas collaboration with her mother, an opera singer. “I’m going to record another Christmas song, with my mother. I’m going to sing in my style, and she is going to sing operatic, which is her style.”
