Mariah Carey's mother worries
Mariah Carey is scared of motherhood.
The 'Touch My Body' singer - who is currently dating record executive Mark Sudack - definitely wants to start a family in the future, but only when she is in a position to devote herself entirely to a child.
She said: "Obviously having a kid is a commitment for life. I really would have to be very, very positive that I was in a place where I could completely focus and put everything into the job of being someone's mommy because it's hard enough to have a puppy."
Mariah, 38, also spoke about Britney Spears' current troubles - which include drug and alcohol addiction rumours and a bitter custody battle with ex-husband Kevin Federline.
The pop superstar feels for the 'Toxic' singer, but insists she would never follow her seemingly destructive path.
After being quizzed about Britney, Mariah told US TV network E!: "If people ever said things that are not in my character like doing serious drugs or anything of that nature, that's just not me and that's never been me and it never will be.
"Things like, 'Oh she was going to commit suicide' - nobody could get me to that point because I have too much respect for God and for life. One of the rumours I just heard about was that I spent $150,000 in plastic surgery. What in the ham sandwich do they think I did? It's very annoying."
Mariah's new album 'E=MC2' is scheduled for release in April.
