(Radio.com) Mariah Carey and Lionel Richie are touring the country on their All the Hits Tour, and The New York Post caught up with Carey after a Madison Square Garden show to discuss self esteem, her humble beginnings and future business endeavors.

Carey admitted that "growing up different, being biracial, having the whole thing where I did not know if I fit in" caused her to underestimate herself--an issue she still struggles with today.

"I just feel like I am a regular human being and I deserve the same respect as anybody else. I have always had low self-esteem, and people do not recognize that," she said. "I can't measure what type of respect I deserve I really can't."

Nevertheless, Carey's come a long way since the pre-fame days. Mariah recalled how challenging it was to stay afloat financially before her first record deal was inked. Read more here.
