Mariah Carey: “I would want to be married with a stable family environment”

R&B diva Mariah Carey, whose parents divorced when she was 3 years old, says she would want to have a solid family life in place before becoming a parent. “If I were to have a child, I would want to be married with a stable family environment,” Carey says on CBS’s day time show The View. “Not to say that that’s how everybody has to do it.” Carey, who told PEOPLE this past February that she’s in no rush to have kids, referred to her parents’ divorce, and the effect it had on her upbringing. “I’m not saying it was unstable, like the worst thing on earth,” she said, but she made it clear that she’d like to do things differently. Asked if she currently has a man in her life, Carey paused and then said with a smile, “I don’t know how to answer that today.” Carey was also invited to advise young celebrities who are experiencing trouble in their personal lives. “If you’re not spiritually centered, you’re kind of back and forth,” she said. “But you know, not everybody is at that point, and maybe some people have to reel themselves in and get back to that point.” “Prayer works for me,” she said. “Reading the Bible does work for me, because knowledge is power.”
