"I just feel like I am a regular human being and I deserve the same respect as anybody else. I have always had low self-esteem, and people do not recognize that," Carey exclusively told pagesix.com.
But she added: "I can't measure what type of respect I deserve - I really can't."
Carey says that on the inside she feels less regal.
"Growing up different, being biracial, having the whole thing where I did not know if I fit in ... That is why music became such a big part of my life, because it helped me overcome those issues," she said.
"Sometimes it is hard to let your guard down."
She recounted her time before she made it to the industry.
"I remember it not being easy getting a record deal. Making demos in the middle of the night, sleeping on the floor in the studio, being broke with no food. My go-to meal was (Newman's Own) sauce. Me and my friend would split the pasta and sauce for, like, a week. Or it was, like, a bagel and iced tea ... The guy would give it to me at the deli for free.
These days, she said she is working on a new fragrance.
"I don't have a name ... But it is with Elizabeth Arden. It smells like success. There is also a secret song I have been working on."
Hilton filmed the sex tape with Saloman in 2001 and he released it in 2004.
By doing so, Hilton feels Saloman robbed her of the type of life and image she had, reports dailymail.co.uk.
"It's really hurtful, because my whole life I really looked up to Princess Diana, all these elegant, amazing women, and I feel like (Salomon) just took that all away from me," Hilton told Marie Claire magazine.
"I could have been like that, but because of that tape, I will always be judged and thought of as whatever they say about me because of a private moment between my boyfriend and me.
"I wish I had never met him. That is actually the one regret in my life. I wish that I had never met that guy. I could not leave my house for months. I was so depressed, humiliated. I didn't want to be seen in p…

"Opinions and emotions are present in every tweet, regardless of whether the user is talking about their health," said lead author Svitlana Volkova, a data scientist at the US Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) in Washington.
"Like a digital heartbeat, we're finding how changes in this behaviour relate to health trends in a community," Volkova added, in the report published in the journal EPJ Data Science.
It takes health workers weeks to discover influenza trends the traditional way: By monitoring how many sick people visit clinics.
However, by discovering trends in real time, social media could be the game-changing solution public health workers have been looking for, the researchers sa…
