Mariah Carey is ready to give fans a deeper look into her.
The DIVA announced Wednesday afternoon that she’s finished work on her memoir. “It took me a lifetime to have the courage and the clarity to write,” she wrote in a note posted to her Instagram. “I want to tell the story of the moments – the ups and downs, the triumphs and traumas, the debacles and the dreams that contributed to the person I am today.

From her Instagram post, it sounds like MiMi used this memoir as a healing tool.
