Mariah Carey Doesn't Want The Title 'Queen Of Christmas' & Shares Her Candid Thoughts On Sexual Harassment In New Interview

| Filed under: Music MinuteMariah CareyWhitney HoustonHolidaze

Mariah Carey covers it all!

Mariah Carey is back on the promo grind for The Star, which means she's up for interviews!

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, the songstress mostly spoke about her new track from the Nativity Christmas movie, which led her to announcing she is not the "Queen of Christmas"!

In fact, she's not even sure how she even got that title!

The momma of two responded to not sounding "thrilled" with the title:

"It's not that I'm not thrilled. I just don't think I deserve it. I'm just a person who likes Christmas, OK? Who happened to write some songs."

But she did share she had some special holiday memories from her past, and revealed how she's making new ones with the twins, Monroe and Moroccan:

"I've always loved Christmas. Even though we didn't have a lot of material things, like money, my mom would always make it festive. She would wrap up, like, some fruit and sign the card from the dog or the cat. Just to have something to open up. Because I grew up in New York, sometimes we had snow at Christmas. Now I try to create this magical moment with Christmas where Santa Claus comes, and it's in Aspen."

Interestingly enough, the convo did move to sexual harassment, and how Mariah feels about all the allegations coming to light.

Music Mogul Benny Medina Accused Of Attempted Rape By Sordid Lives Actor Jason Dottley

Benny Medina

And another one.

On Friday, Sordid Lives star Jason Dottley accused music mogul Benny Medina of raping him nearly 10 years ago at his Los Angeles mansion.

According to Dottley's account, the two first met at The Abbey in West Hollywood before Medina invited Dottley and his friend back to his place. It's there that Dottley says Medina sexually assaulted him after leading him into his bedroom and forcefully pinning him to the bed.

It wasn't until Dottley's friend T. Ashanti Mozelle intervened that Medina kicked the two out of his home. Days later, Medina allegedly sent Dottley — who was married at the time — a text after seeing him on the street, saying:

"Hey, I'm at The Ivy eating. Just saw you walking across the street. Is that the husband I have to have killed to have you?"

When asked why he didn't come forward at the time, the actor admitted:

"I was emasculated, I was humiliated, and at that time, no one was coming forward and I was afraid if I went to the police or the press that Benny Medina was powerful enough to ruin both my career and my ex-husband's," Dottley said. "I also had stepchildren at the time and their safety came into question as well. … All of the tactics used by power predators worked on me because the end result was extreme fear of retaliation if I came forward in any way. [Medina] sexually assaulted and attempted to rape me while choking me. Add in a threatening text a few days later and hopefully anyone can understand just how scared of this man I was. I always thought I would be telling my autobiography long after he was dead. I found the strength through the other [victims] who've come before."

He added:

"He took a part of me away that I didn't even know I had, which is faith in humanity, because here's a revered person that seemed so nice and at the end of the day he was using power to prey on young vulnerable looking guys and I happened to be his pick for that night. … You have to do this a lot to be confident enough that you can send a text like that, like, that's not a first-timer. I think because he produces a lot of television and has hands in tons of pies, that's prevented more people from coming forward."

Now, Dottley is hoping to keep this violence from happening again:

"For the record, I don't plan on suing for money. What I want is the truth exposed about these people so that they cannot continue to prey on people like they do. Hopefully, if enough of us continue to speak out and name names, I would hope the next time one of these power predators will think long and hard before he attempts that on somebody else because he'll always think, I wonder if this one's going to talk too."

So far, no response from Medina's camp.

Medina is best known for managing the careers of the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Mariah Carey, and Will Smith — and for executive producing The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air, The Fosters, and Shades Of Blue.

Despite the single being SO close in name to Mariah Carey's banger All I Want For Christmas Is You, we doubt this collaboration will reach "classic" status. Nonetheless, both Nick and Shania sound great on the track. Plus, Say All You Want For Christmas is a welcomed change from all the renditions of Let It Snow out there.

Mariah Carey Accused Of Sexual Harassment & More By Former Security Guard

| Filed under: Legal MattersMariah CareyControversy

Mariah Carey is facing a new lawsuit.

Mariah Carey's former security guard has accused her of sexual harassment.

In a draft of a lawsuit his company threatened the singer with for unpaid invoices, Michael Anello also alleged she was constantly referring to him as a Nazi, a skinhead, a KKK member, and a white supremacist, according to TMZ.

The guard claims she only "wanted to be surrounded with black guys, not white people," and would refer to another colleague of his as a member of hate groups.

And when it came to the sexual harassment, Michael says she performed "sexual acts with the intent that they be viewed by Anello."

He added how Mariah once asked him to come to her room to move some luggage during a trip to Mexico, but she was only wearing a see-through dressing gown, which he says was open. Michael tried leaving, but
