If you tuned in to Mariah Carey‘s Thanksgiving-night NBC special, then you know that despite her two Grammys, her marriage to Sony’s president and chief operating officer Tommy Mottola, her new top 5 album (Music Box), and her sold-out concert tour, the 23-year-old singer spends an inordinate amount of time alone on the farm.
