Mariah Carey glow on the cover of Billboard Magazine

Move over, Grinch: 'As an adult, what I've tried to do is take what I always wished Christmas would be and have the perfect holiday season,' Mariah said
In the new issue of Billboard Magazine, the Dreamlover hitmaker talks about how her now-classic holiday standard, All I Want For Christmas Is You, came out of her determination to see the joy in the holiday season, in spite of what she calls her 'tragically dysfunctional family.'

'I grew up looking forward to the holidays all year long, but because I have such a tragically dysfunctional family, certain family members or ex-family members would ruin it every year,' Mariah said. 
'As an adult, what I've tried to do is take what I always wished Christmas would be and have the perfect holiday season.'
And perfect it is: this season, the 25th anniversary of her holiday song's debut, Carey has been dominating attention, with the song vaulting to first place along with a sold out concert and festive Late Show appearance.
'For me, it's not just making a Christmas album for the sake of jumping on a bandwagon,' the diva explained. 'It's literally exorcising the demons that I had to battle as a child and coming out still feeling festive.'
