Mariah Carey may be best known for her INCREDIBLE voice - and more recently, her role as a judge this season on American Idol - but it's perhaps a lesser-known fact that she is also a talented songwriter, having penned some of her own biggest hits!

Well, thankfully, at the BMI Urban Awards this past Friday, her talents did NOT go unrecognized, as the diva was awarded with the publishing association's Icon Award…despite showing up an hour into the ceremony!

Ch-ch-check her out making her grand entrace (above)!

During her acceptance speech, she explained:

"I'm so humbled by this moment because a lot of people still don't know I write my own songs. It's so great. I've been writing songs my whole life, I love it. It's my favorite form of expression and release. Tonight's not really about diva dramatics or gossipy moments, it's about the music and that's what's important to me."

WELL-SAID!

For someone as SUPREMELY talented as you are, we're thrilled to know that the music industry is aware of how lucky they are to have you, and honoring you as such!

Now keep writing - and BELTING - out those fantastic tunes, gurl!

And CONGRATZ again!

    She is extremely talented - it is to bad that her reputation for being a diva has turned fans off to the point that no one cares anymore.

    I still love her!!!
    Every night and day, I can't hardly wait, for another taste of that HONEY! <3

    Mario, compliment her if you like, but keep it in proportion. Mariah Carey has excellent pipes. But I think it's more a case that she's lucky to be where she is, rather than the industry is lucky to have her. It's her fans who got her and keep her in luxury. Your post is overly fawning and sickening. Grow the fuck up already.
    .
    P.S. Where's Meggie? I'm missing my new, unfortunately stupid, punching bag. It's too bad, Meggie, you're too brainless to figure out that it's a WEEKEND date, and most white-collar people DON'T WORK ON SUNDAYS, you dumb bitch.

    Pretty sure she wrote ALL her hits besides the covers…

    And I actually think she looks pretty good. SHe just needs to tone down on the fake tan then she'd look great!

    Why do people hate so much on her? Beyonce is also a real diva but noone is hating on her. Being a diva shows that u're very gifted and talented. AND real Divas don't demand. Only the ones who thonk they are..,.

    Re: Marc – Marc are you serious? Do you know anything about music? She is the best selling music act since 1990 and you think her music is shit? Not only are you an idiot but your taste in music must be truly fucking HORRIBLE!

    ohh the haters have to post comments. You would think they would get a life. If you don't like someone, DON'T POST ABOUT THEM. Its that simple Marcass!

    Still fat, still ugly and still long island trash.
    I hope she gets killed in a plane crash.

    Re: Marc
    But I bet you wouldn't mind some of her $500 million fortune? Guess for a pile of crap, as you put it, many don't agree. Jealous much? Gee… Marc, how many hit songs and albums have you had?

    So much hate torwards Mariah & i don't know why. she hasn't done a single thing but make wonderful music & it's ABOUT TIME she got credit for her writing. She has such a talent, it's honestly god given. Can you write 18 # 1 hits besides a few covers? No, didn't think so. She isn't a "diva" people claim she is. she is down to Earth and a very charismatic person. She is a real role model, not doing drugs or anything! Hate on people who don't have talent, but i understand you want to hate because your jealous. "If you don't have anything nice to say, Don't say it at all." #TeamMariah
