AceShowbiz - Mariah Carey considers herself "kind of a prude" because she's only ever slept with five people.
The 49-year-old singer opened up about her sex life in a chat with America's Cosmopolitan magazine, admitting she hasn't played the field much over the years.
"I haven't had that many, but there has been a variety pack," she smiled to the publication. "I've only been with five people in my life, so I'm kind of a prude, honestly, compared to most others in the field."
Mariah has been married twice - to Tommy Mottola and Nick Cannon - and was engaged to Australian billionaire James Packer. She is currently in a relationship with her back-up dancer and choreographer Bryan Tanaka.
Her ex-boyfriends are rumoured to have included Derek Jeter and Eric Benet.
Elsewhere in the interview, Mariah reflected on her infamous 2016 performance on Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve in Times Square, which received worldwide attention after technical difficulties caused the "Hero" hitmaker's in-ear monitors to malfunction.
Addressing the poorly received show, Mariah insisted she was unbothered by the fallout and is grateful for the unwavering support of her loyal fans.
"If people think that's the worst thing that's ever happened to me, then, first of all, they haven't studied my career well enough," the mother-of-two smiled. "After what I've been through, who really gives a s**t if my monitor broke, fell off, came out of my ears because the stupid robe was too loose? These things happen and it's over. My true fans stick with me, and the rest of the people will get over it."
