Most people sit back and relax when taking a bath, but for Mariah Carey it's not quite so simple. The singer recently told People magazine that she rarely takes a bath “where no one’s banging on the door going, ‘Mommy!'”

Carey, 45, has four-year-old twins, Monroe and Moroccan. As a result, she often wears a swimsuit when soaking after a long day.

She revealed, "I love them so much, but when I’m home, they just want to be with me. I’ll often take a bath in a bathing suit knowing that I’m going to have to let them in. It’s that one thing that used to be my private time, and now it’s not, bu...

While regular women don't have the best makeup artists and hair people on the planet to glam up us on a regular basis as Carey does, her words still ring true to the average person.

All deserve the same respect if not more than the hits, but they can always bask in their critical acclaim. These are the most underrated songs of 2015…so far.
