Mariah Carey shares rare photo of her 'bad side'

This is not a drill — we repeat — this is not a drill.

Mariah Carey just shared a photo of her “bad side” on social media.

In honour of #ThrowbackThursday, the diva posted a picture that was taken from her left side.

Any true fan of the ‘Always Be My Baby’ singer knows she prefers the right. For reference, see below.

The ‘We Belong Together’ singer’s complex started when she was 19 years old and doing her first-ever photo shoot and the photographer pointed out her “good side”.

After hearing the critique, MiMi “didn’t like” photos of her left side and wouldn’t let photographers shoot her from that angle for years.

In 2009, she said she was finally OK with her left side.

“I don’t feel like, ‘Oh, I have to be on this side, or I have to be on this side’ — I really had specific things that someone told me when I was 19 starting in the business, and I listened to them … I don’t care anymore,” she told the Associated Press.

“Sometimes I like that [left] side — and Nick likes that side better anyway,” she added, referring to her then-husband, Nick Cannon.

Perhaps this throwback means she really has embraced herself from every angle.
