Mariah Carey on Time's Up for the Music Industry: 'I Think I Need to Be a Consultant on That' (Exclusive)


Mariah Carey is ready for Time's Up to come to the music industry.

The singer wore all black along with almost every other woman on the red carpet at the Golden Globes, where she told ET's Carly Steel about the need for change across the board.

"Of course it's important for me to support the movement, there's no way I couldn't. I had a few conversations with Kerry Washington, just talking about the whole thing," Carey said of her decision to wear black.  

"And even in the music business, we haven't even touched on that ball of wax. But I think I need to be a consultant when it's time to talk about that," she added.

Carey was nominated for "The Star" from the animated film of the same name, and it was her first Golden Globe nomination.

"As a songwriter, this is a huge honor, and especially as a female, we don't always get acknowledged as songwriters, so that kind of goes with tonight's theme," she said.

But how do 'dem babies' aka Carey's twins, Moroccan and Monroe, like Mom's movie?

"They love it, they loved the movie. I think it's such a good movie for kids, for families. I'm honored to have been able to work with Marc Shaiman [her song co-writer] who's just an incredible musician and fantastic songwriter, and we worked together on this song called 'The Star,' and here we are at the Golden Globes nominated!"
