Matt Lauer: Where are you in life now, Mariah? Where are you? I mean -- you know, describe the place you inhabit right now emotionally.

Mariah Carey: Look, I've always been a pretty vulnerable person. But I built up -- I have learned how to build up a wall. So when I have to, I can put up that wall, and leave it there, and walk in the other direction. And that's what I have to do sometimes with people in my life when they just don't get it, that I'm a person like them.
