Mariah Carey Addresses Album Delay And Arm Injury In Heartfelt Letter To Fans

Mariah Carey was on a roll earlier this year. American Idol raised her profile, “#Beautiful” turned out to be her biggest hit in years and hype for new LP The Art Of Letting Go was building nicely. Then she injured her arm filming a remix video and everything got put on hold. But the pop icon jumped on Facebook today to let us know that she’s finally healthy and coming back with a vengeance.

“The last three months of my life have not been easy,” the Lamb Whisperer wrote. “Getting through this injury has been the toughest experience of my life.” She also confides that doctors originally told her the injury would take eight months to heal but she is almost fully recovered. That’s great news even though the diamante slings were rather fabulous.

Excitingly, Mimi has finished her LP. The chart-busting diva used her time off to record new songs and calls the opus “one of the most important albums I’ve ever made in my life”, going as far as labeling it “a complete+total classic!” Mariah never lies, so expect the musical extravaganza to scalp your faves and end careers. Read her letter after the jump.
