Normally I dont think Rob is downgrading anyone listed here but Mariah I would think is at least 5'8.
seb said on 29/Oct/08
She speaks with journalists only lying on the sofa and never stands up.They say, she extreamly lies about her height and truely she even shorter then 5'7

If she stands 6'0 in heels, how come she is not taller than De niro and phylicia Rashaad? Is De niro over 6'0 ? Please tell me Briggie.
Briggie said on 25/Oct/08
shes about 5'9, and stands about 6'0 in heels, CASE CLOSED

Jojo you met Mariah and she was in no shoes. Yeah right. You must have met somebody else. Mariah is always wearing extremely high heels. I met her too and she is 5'7.
mclover said on 20/Oct/08
jojo, if mariah is 5 foot 10, then what does this make Kimora?
Click Here
They are both in heels but we cant see who has the heel advantage. One can clearly see that Kimora has at least a 4 inch height advantage if not more. I will say 5'7'' for sure for my girl Mariah.
Jojo said on 17/Oct/08
Shes 5'10" I have met her and im 5'7.5" and she was in no shoes and she was a good 3" taller than me and she even told me she was 5'10". I dont see any reason she would lie

Hey Nate, your link is broken
Jeremy said on 14/Oct/08
I would also believe 5'7 for her height.But I would not believe that she is under 5'7.She is not 5'6 and she is not 5'9.So she is either 5'7 or 5'8.
2005 said on 14/Oct/08
She is 5'7 case closed people. Look at the picture with De niro she is the same height as felicia Rasha.
Jeremy said on 13/Oct/08
I believe that Mariah is 5'8.At times she looks shorter because of her curbs.Also when she takes pictures she always has one leg infront of the other and that takes away from her height.
~Nate~ said on 12/Oct/08
Like I said before..Ive met Mariah 3 times and Nick twice before they were married. I'm 6'1 and The day I met Mariah I was in timbs I was about maybe 6'2ish that day. Anyways she had on her usual 4inchers and I looked eye to eye with her, not to say she was as tall as me but she was close. The top of her head hit the bottom of my eyebrows...I have pics to prove this...In this pic we were standing on a higher platform then Mariah and the fans in the front...Im on the right of her next to her shoulder...or her left....(the mixed black guy) lol...This pic was 5yrs ago [IMG]Click Here
mclover said on 9/Oct/08
I thought this photo was a bit interesting. Although it really dosnt prove a specific height, i think this photo shows that she really is not all that tall. Tall enough, but not "tall" where one would have to comment on it. If you look at her proportions, they really dont look all that long for someone to be over 5 foot 7 like say...Rihanna. Sometimes, i really think mariah is like 5 foot 6.5 or so. Just my opinion.

Brah said on 7/Oct/08
There is a good height comparison scene in "You Don't Mess With the Zohan" where she is standing next to 6'0.5" John Turturro in huge heels. She looked 3 inches shorter than him.
He was probably 6'1.5" with shoes on, so she was 5'10.5" with those huge heels on.
christ said on 4/Oct/08
Nate look at the picture with De niro. She is not even taller than him. A 5'8 girl with heels should be have been taller. Again this site seems to agree with me. 5'7 is dead on.
christ said on 4/Oct/08
Nate don't take it personal. I have seen Mariah in person and she is 5'7 just like this site says. I guess this site is also wrong. Just so that you know Nick is 5'11 and she is never taller than him when wearing platforms. Ps how come when i saw her and Whitney Houston together, Whitney was an inch taller when they were both wearing same size heels?
~Nate~ said on 3/Oct/08
2005- First of all I wish you would stop lying for once in your life, your so pathetic its funny..LOL..Even Brad will tell you that she's about 5'8...maybe taller..anyways I will be going to Nicks Party at club Pure where im in the vip section! Im gonna try my hardest to get another pic with her and Im 6'1 in 4inch heels she's about an inch shorter then me! On oprah she's wearing 4inch heels never 7inches you retard lol you really need to educate yourself sweety. Some folk lol
christ said on 29/Sep/08
I have recently seen her in person at Fashion rocks and she was much shorter than I expected. She is about 5'7 no shorter or taller than that.
2005 said on 28/Sep/08
She is no more than 5'7. The picture with De niro felicia Rashad says it all. She is the same size as felicia.
2005 said on 27/Sep/08
Nate take a look at what king of hooker shoes she was wearing on Ophrah. They are more than 5 inches,more like 7inches. I know it is hard for you to accept the fact that she is 5'7, however it is the truth. I saw her in person and she is no more than 5'7.
2005 said on 27/Sep/08
Like I said it before I saw her with whitney houston while promoting the Prince of Egypt. Whitney was taller. The only time she matched Whitney height was she was wearing platforms while whitney was wearing 3-4 inch heels. We all know Whitney is 5'8 and she is taller. How can Mariah be more than 5'7? By the way her husband is 5'11 and she is never taller than him while wearing those massive heels. Again whitney is 5'8 and taller.
~Nate~ said on 22/Sep/08
2005...Please educate yourself..I've met Mariah a few times and have seen just about every picture she has..and let me tell you she never wears 7inch stilettos your ridiculous 3 to 5in is very realistic but no higher then 5 lol ur ridiculous!
Nicky said on 22/Sep/08
I think she's somewhere around 5'8" to 5'9". Nothing lower than that. I know she does wear a lot of high heels,but she is pretty tall
Tami said on 22/Sep/08
I'm weirded out so many of you think she's not tall!!! I think she's 5'8 1/2. It's true that she's constantly in heels, but a LOT of women who are of more average heights run around in heels every day, but it doesn't have the same effect as when a tall woman (like Mariah) does it. She's already tall, and that 's why there's this sort of "drag" element to her look lol. Jen, thanks for posting those quotes from all those articles instead of speculating from a few pictures where she is turned at an odd angle or hunched over!
fiona said on 15/Sep/08
i've been reading on the net that Mariah is 5"9- NOT POSSIBLE
now i'm reading she's 5"7-that sounds more realistic-but still not true
2005 said on 12/Sep/08
This picture says it all. 5'8 yeah right more like 5'6 1/2 . If she really was 5'8 she would have been much taller than Bob de Niro. She is almost the same height as felicia Rashad.
runt said on 3/Sep/08
She's an inch taller than Robert DeNiro's current shrunken height in this pic and she probably has quite an advantage in footwear...

5' 8" 4 real.
~nATE~ said on 25/Aug/08
When I saw her at Jimmy Kimmel she wasnt that much shorter then him in heels right under him! She walked past us in the audience! My friend who is 5'7 1/2 was with me and she had 4inch wedges type sandles on..Mariah had on about 4 inch heels and was noticeably taller! shes no shorter then 5'8~ for sure!
2005 said on 12/Aug/08
She always wears those hookers shoes. Go on you tube she was wearing them when she came to mtv to promote her cd. Hsrd to believe huh MHouillon ?
MHouillon said on 12/Aug/08
7 inches heels....
That are almost 18cms !
2005 said on 9/Aug/08
Mariah heel aren't 3-4 inches, 5-7inches will be more accurate.
MHouillon said on 7/Aug/08
168cm (5'6) is the same bull**** as the 175cm (5'9) nonsense.

Truth lies in the 'middle':

She is 172cm (5'7.75"), wears high heels (3-4 inches) and gives this way a 5'11-appearence.
Brad said on 6/Aug/08
She's 5' 8". She's gonna get a huge deal at Planet Hollywood Casino in Vegas that will force Michael Jackson to ink a deal at MGM down the street. He can't pass on the cheese offer.
ashley said on 5/Aug/08
i think maiah carey is 5
2005 said on 21/Jul/08
A lot of celebrity lie about their heights. They because they want to be taller than they are. Again I saw her and whitney houston together. Whitney was 1 to 1 1/2 inch taller. The only time when they were both the same height was when mariah was wearing higher heels. Again whitney is 5'8 how can mariah be more than 5'7 while she was clearly shorter than whitney?
Mike said on 21/Jul/08
Why would she lie about her height? She is 176 cm
2005 said on 20/Jul/08
A girl whos is 5'8 wearing platform heels should not be shorter than a 5'11 guy even if he is wearing Timbs. I saw her and Whitney Houston years ago while promoting the Prince of Egypt. Whitney was taller and she is listed at 5'8. 5'7 is dead on.
Brad said on 18/Jul/08
Yesterday's photo of them together shopping has him 2" taller. He's in Timbs and she's in mid-range heels. She's 5' 8".
2005 said on 17/Jul/08
Her husband Nick Cannon is 5'11 and Mariah while wearing her usual platforms is always at least 2" shorter than him. A 5'8 girl wearing such high shoes should be at be somewhere between 5'11 or 6'. Obviously Mariah is not close to that because she is always shorter than her 5'11 husband.
Brad said on 17/Jul/08
Beyonce brought out the big ones with Mariah. Texas couldn't beat Long Island there.
2005 said on 17/Jul/08
Again I saw her in person She is 5'7. She appears tall because she always wears extremely high shoes. Beyonce is 5'6. Mariah wears higher shoes than her, of course she is going to be 2" taller.
Brad said on 16/Jul/08
Nate is correct. She's 5' 8" easy. She owned Beyonce by 2" standing side by side.
Bee said on 15/Jul/08
Sorry but Mariah is not 5"7. 5"6-5"6 1/2 max. When she first hugs Oprah, she isn't standing straight, but then she does and she does a twirl. They both have on heels but Mariah's is higher and has the platform front. There is no way she'd be taller than Oprah without those heels.
Click Here
Nate said on 13/Jul/08
I most definitely agree with brad on this still...Mariah is about 5'8 to 5'9 max! There's no way a 5'6 or 5'7 chick could stand next to me with 4 to 5 inch heels and be taller then me. My sister is 5'8 and in stilettos she almost matches me in height but mc was taller and im 6ft
K9 said on 13/Jul/08
okay, so Mariah came to st. louis, mo several years ago. my daughter went back stage to meet her and take pictures, my daughter is 4'11" and in the picture she is standing right next to MC. MC still had heals on, and appeared to be 5 or 6 inches taller than my daughter; do the math. Besides, it does not matter how tall she is, she towers above all because she is a true superstar.
Realme2008 said on 9/Jul/08
Yeah, I'm really tired of hearing that Mariah is 5'8" or 5'9. She obviously isn't if you look at her pictures. Of course she's going to look tall if she is wearing huge heels, and is above average height for a women. I mean, it's common sense. 5'7" is a correct height listing for her.
2005 said on 7/Jul/08
She came to Oprah to promote her cd. She and Oprah were wearing same size heels and both of them were the same height? Does that mean Oprah is 5'8 or 5'9 ? Yeah right. Oprah is 5'61/2. Now explain that
Brad said on 6/Jul/08
5' 8" is what I saw right in front of my eyes. Puts on the 5"ers and she owns guys, except me.
~Nate~ said on 29/Jun/08
Ok on American Idol she was taller then all the chicks and some of the guys...she was about 2inches taller then Kristy Lee Cook who is reported to be 5'8-Never was she shorter then her! My homegirl is 5'8.5 she posted her pic on her before..Showing Mariah is taller then her by about an inch check it out kids
Realme2008 said on 25/Jun/08
I'm so mad at E! News, because today they called her the 5'9" beauty. They should get their facts straight. She obviously is not 5'9", and is 5'7". You can really tell this, because when she is standing next to her husband Nick Cannon who is 5'10.5-5'11" she is constantly shorter than him. If she were 5'9" that obviously wouldn't be the case. God, people really need to learn how to properly tell height.

she can't be 5'7 she is the same height as britney and j lo -5'5 max!
JenDoe said on 5/Jun/08
Marissa, Did she wore heels? Mariah always wear those big could never exactly guess her true height.But she has these long legs that would make her appear taller. I think 5Ft7 is right..or maybe 5'8 Max.
Marissa said on 30/May/08
Ive met her at a party down here in miami. She is tall. Im 5'7 and she is taller than me. At least 2 inches
Boss said on 29/May/08
She looks so short on stage but is much taller in person.
Larry said on 29/May/08
I stood right next to her in a hospital elevator. I am exactly 5'6" and she is definately not taller then I am. She was wearing running shoes. I looked becasue I have a foot fetish and would like to see her bare feet
leonari said on 19/May/08
J.Lee: Wanna get real? take your bull**** figures to a site where people don't know the averages. OK?
Your posts are nonsense. Yeah you read correctly. Pure bull. Incredible the arrogance and certitude some folks have without actually having the slightest clue....Most girls are 5'8" and above...From which mental institution have you escaped???
Viper said on 19/May/08
J. Lee, are you blind to facts? The average female is 5-4. Hell it seems shorter where I live. And 5-7 is certaintly tallish.
2005 said on 16/May/08
Her new husband Nick Cannon is 5'11 and she is at least 2inches shorter than him while wearing heels. A 5'8 girl who wears such high heels would be at least 5'11 or taller. Again 5'7 is what I saw in person.
leonari said on 15/May/08
J.Lee: I hope that the heights you posted are WITH HEELS. Cause there is just no way that she is 5'10" or even 5'11" barefoot!! Everything over 5'9" is a joke for mariah. But she is way taller than Robs listing... I say 5'8.5".
2005 said on 12/May/08
Yes she is 5'10" in heels. Once she take them off, she is no more than 5'7. Just remember, I saw her in person when she was promoting the Prince of Egypt with Whitney(who is taller than Mariah for sure)
kk said on 9/May/08
mariah is 5'9" most websites say she's 5'9" and [some says 5'10"]
M.P. said on 7/May/08
Mariah Carey once even said she was 5'10". I'm guessing she meant in heels, because she does almost always wear heels. She could certainly pass for 5'10" because she has the body for it, but I'm guessing that's just wishful thinking, on her behalf. It's weird, because most all women I know don't care about their height if they're under 5'9". I guess she just wants to be even MORE supermodel-like.
ty said on 29/Apr/08
Sawyers has 2 inches on mariah check out the video on youtube. GMA Bye bye vid.
2005 said on 27/Apr/08
If you look at her shoes and Diane sawyer shoes, you will see that her heels are way higher than Diane's. That the reason she is the same height as Diane Sawyer. She did the same thing when she was promoting the prince of Egypt with Whitney Houston. The only way for her to match Whitney height was by wearing higher heels.
byrd said on 25/Apr/08
here she is with Robin Roberts & Diane Sawyer:
Click Here

She appears to be the same height as Sawyer, so I'm guessing she's at least 5'8.
Bruce said on 19/Apr/08
Any woman that is 5'7" and above is tall because they kind of stand out and could easily tower over so many men when wearing like 5-6" heels as well. Despite a 6" heels could probably make her about 4 inches tall... i mean 4 inches can make her nearly 6'0" so i think 5'7" or 5'7.5" is more like her.
josh said on 17/Apr/08
I saw her on idol and was about 1 inch taller than ryan seacrest, who's height is 5'8". MC had on at least 4 maybe 5 or 6 inch heels. She's 5'6" without her heels.
tallgirl1313 said on 16/Apr/08
I have always thought she looked more like 5'6 rather than the commonly reported 5'9... But last night on Idol I think it was obvious.. I mean how does a 5'9" woman end up being the same height or even shorter than almost the entire cast? She certainly didn't come off as someone who is as tall as many fashion models.. She didn't tower over anyone and looked more average height than tall -- AND she was wearing what looked like 4 inch stilettos.. I would never describe her as tall after seeing those comparisons -- sorry...
Anonymous said on 16/Apr/08
Frankly, I think that 5'7" is generous after seeing her stand next to the Idols. Even next to Archuleta with her sky-high heels she didn't eclipse him by much.
Hollie said on 15/Apr/08
Tonight, she stood next to 5ft. 8 in. Kristy Lee Cook and looked about 2-3 inches shorter than her even though she had on heels that were about 1-2 inches taller than Kristy's. 5ft. 7in. seems very accurate.
Linds said on 15/Apr/08
I saw her on american idol when they showed the conestants sessions with her. She certainly didn't tower over any of the girls like a 5'8"-5'9" girl should with MASSIVE heels on. They were ridiculously high and she still didn't look huge.
Deela said on 29/Mar/08
She's the same height as me, 5'6.5" MAX. She wears extremely high heals...3 to 4 inches. That's what puts her to 5'9, up.
kikichanelconspiracy said on 29/Mar/08
There's a new Macy's commercial with her, Martha Stewart and Halle Berry's boyfriend (Gabriel whatever). Stewart and Carey are standing next to each other and Martha Stewart easily has two inches on her. IF not more.
2005 said on 28/Mar/08
Again what I saw in person was not 5'9 girl. Like I said before Whitney was taller than she was when I saw them in person. So It either Mariah is shorter than 5'8 or Whitney is taller than 5'8. One of them is not telling the truth. You tell me
gigi said on 28/Mar/08
She is on the cover of Allure April 2008, the interview states she is 5'9" in barefeet.
2005 said on 26/Mar/08
You said your sister is slightly under 5'8, which means she is not 5'8. And you also said Mariah was about your sister size.You just comfirmed that Mariah might be slightly under 5'8 but she is definitely not 5'8. That is the reason Whitney{true 5'8} was taller than her while wearing same size heels. Again the only way Mariah can match Whitney height is by wearing higher heels. Than her.Thank you for confirming that statement.
sam said on 25/Mar/08
Mariah was about the same size as my sister who is slightly under 5'8. We were standing next to her barefoot so there was no heel height confusion.
2005 said on 24/Mar/08
Again I saw Mariah and Whitney in person wearing same size heels and Whitney was an inch to an inch and half taller. So if Whitney is 5'8 how can Mariah be more than 5'7. I know for sure Whitney is not 5'9
sam said on 24/Mar/08
I am 6 feet even and having stood next to her in the Bahamas without her usual high heels on I would say she is taller than 5'7 but shorter than 5'9
2005 said on 19/Mar/08
You are right Mariah is around 5'7 and Whitney is 5'8 for sure. One thing I know is that when I saw the two of them together Whitney was at least 1 inch to 1 1/2 taller and her heels were the same as Mariah's
Paul said on 14/Mar/08
I think she's around 5-7", whitney seems taller as her legs are very long!
Anyway, does it matter much? When we get old, we will be 4 feet something as our backs bend and we'll all be six feet under after we're dead! By the way, to John below, who cares how tall you're?
2005 said on 4/Mar/08
There is no way Mariah is 5'9. I have seen both Whitney and Mariah in person when promoting The prince of egypt. Whitney is 1 inch to 1/2 inch taller. Mariah only matches whitney height by wearing higher heels than her. So if whitney is taller how can Mariah be 5'9?
john said on 24/Feb/08
I don't mind what she is, it's all rubbish anyway when these chicks take their shoes off. I am 6ft 1.5 without shoes. Plenty tall enough!
marvin said on 19/Feb/08
and mariah is taller than celine dion.
marvin said on 19/Feb/08
i saw mariah and whitney way back in 1998. i can say that mariah is not shorter than whitney. mariah is like 5'8 - 5'8.5

Mariah is 5 foot 9. I've had the pleasure of meeting her several times, I am 6 foot 1, and with her heels on she is 6'1 we were same height. also she has super long legs, and very toned, shes not a small lady, very lean and toned, but muscular
mon said on 22/Jan/08
shes taller than 5'7...she just looks short cause she always hanging around taller ppl..on da cribs episode with naomi campbell, she was basically the same height as her. I say 5'9 is right
sw said on 5/Jan/08
Mariah is not more than 170cm because she did a video with Pharrell (175cm) and there she had pumps with 8cm or more and was as tall as Pharrell was.
C. said on 31/Dec/07
As much as I dislike Mariah Carey, the woman is taller than 5'7". Either a weak 5'9" or 5'8" 3/4 or something very close.
Jen said on 24/Dec/07
Cosmopolitan, December 1997:
"Carey pours herself a glass of red wine, kicks off her size 9 1/2 shoes, and stretches out her surprisingly tall 5 foot 8 1/2-inch frame on a couch."

Rolling Stone, Feb 23rd 2006:
"Though not a Zellwegerian stick figure by any stretch of the matte jersey, the five foot eight Mariah is considerably leaner than you might expect: not so much full figured as sturdy."

Mirabella, May 1999:
"She lays all five-feet-9 of her down on a white antique couch."
(5'8 1/2" could conceivably be rounded to 5'9".)

People, November 22nd 1993:
"Tall-5'9 and striking with her mahogany-colored hair and ebony eyes, she seems unaffected by her fame."

QX Magazine, April 2005:
"She's surprisingly tall."

You Magazine, November 10th 2002:
"She's also taller than I expected, above and beyond the precipitous heels she's sporting."

Blender, Jan/Feb 2003:
"A strapping five-foot-nine SANS stilettos, with huge chocolate eyes, tumbling locks and the type of stop-the-traffic curves that Blender can put down only to a slip of God's pen, the most expensive pop star in history is a whole lotta woman."

Rolling Stone, Feb 5th 1998:
"People are, for some reason, surprised to learn that she is a not-at-all petite 5 feet 9 inches. Also that she is smart."

Jen said on 24/Dec/07
By the way, I have a pic of her standing front on next to Whitney and they were the same height...Whitney isn't taller. The thing with Mariah is she has long legs but I don't think her torso is very long and her arms aren't long. I'm tall, and everything on me is balanced so it's easier to tell. When she got her boobs done, it made her look less lean and thereby shorter. I have 100 magazine interviews on her, and every one of them comments on how statuesque she is. A lot of short/average height people wear heels, and they don't get referred to as statuesque. That's because she IS. Get over it people.
Jen said on 24/Dec/07
She is 5'8 1/2 not 5'7". This is both according to her fan club and her personal stylist. All other sources can't be trusted. That is still tall though, and she is definitely tall...whoever thinks otherwise is nuts. She is 6'0" in heels according to everyone who has interviewed her. She also walked directly in front of me wearing 4-5 inch boots at Pure Nightclub and although she was shorter than me (I'm 5'10" and had on 5 inch wedges) she was not THAT much shorter.
Kieran said on 29/Nov/07
wha? why has she been put down to 5ft 7? she is a very tall women isnt anywhere close to that!

mia said on 26/Nov/07
i just saw her last week and i'm 6'1. i can really say that she's taller than 5'7 (without heels) because my sister is 5'7 1/2. i'm sure mariah is 5'8 - 5'9.
. said on 26/Nov/07
4 inch heels aren't sky high? I disagree with that. And she didn't look much taller than Ellen to me either. Again my opinion.
~Nate~ said on 24/Nov/07
Yes she was on Ellen, she was wearing about 4inch heels on not sky high!! Yes she was alot taller then Ellen!..I'll look for pics
. said on 22/Nov/07
She was just on Ellen. She had her typical sky-high heels on and she wasn't much taller than Ellen. I agree with 5'6". No way is she 5'8".
~Nate~ said on 21/Nov/07
SO I just got back from meeting Mariah at the Perfume signing at the Glendale Galleria Mall in Macys-So she was sitting down the whole time signing pics-didnt get to see her height this time, but I did see how thin and gorgeous she looked...good times
~Nate~ said on 20/Nov/07
Ok I'm going to meet Mariah tomorrow in LA at Macys Galleria Maybe I'll get a pic with her! We'll see! Stay tuned kids.....

Lily,Lily,Lily....I bet this discussion is the highlight of your life I'll entertain you and give you a reason to exist for a few paragraphs, Anyways I believe and feel like I know in the real world that Mariah is really 5'8 min! You can think whatever you want since you'e never met her, thats fake sweety, just like you!
lily said on 17/Nov/07
@Nate: It's hard discussing real life things with people who are probably blind and never get out in the real world! We're moving on over here, stay in your fantasy MC world, in our world she's still not tall at all, so end of discussion.
~Nate~ said on 17/Nov/07
Were gonna keep it moving on Lily were gonna wish the haters well, anyways about Mc yes she is a few inches taller then Oprah and is about the same height as Whitney and is about two inches shorter then 6'2-ODB in stilettos
lily said on 15/Nov/07
Nate get a real life and stop living in a fantasy where you think you've met MC and know it all. Get your facts straight by observing (open your eyes!) and read: MC isn't taller than Oprah, isn't taller than Whitney Houston so no way tha gal is 5'9". And I do own mirrors, perhaps I should send you one and the next time you meet MC both of you can take a look at yourselves. Warning:Don't be surprise at the revealing truth of the real world!!!
~Nate~ said on 14/Nov/07
First of all Lily before you open your mouth about someone please look in the mirror...please sweety! lol ANyways I think we can all attest for those of us who met her that she is by no means fat and she was born in 1970...She is 5'9, and een if shes a fake your a genuine hater!!! Get a life please :D
lily said on 12/Nov/07
I think MC lives in a dreamworld where she would like to be younger(born in 1970 instead of 1969 *LOL*), thinner (pics on her website and album covers always depict her leaner than she actually is) and taller (no way she is 5'7", more like max 5'6"). Her voice is the only real thing but she doesn't know how to use that at best anymore, so keep on dreaming little, fat almost 40 MC!! Thanks to your voice your "make-believe-world" keeps on rockin'.
sweetchari said on 5/Nov/07
I think she is five eight like me and wears really high heels because she has always looked like she was near 6ft she always towers almost everyone it seems so I kind of don't buy 5'7" for her height.
Katie said on 27/Oct/07
She said she was 5'9? No way! She's not that tall.
~Nate~ said on 24/Oct/07
Well duh I have many pics from that event Mariah was wearing stiettos same as Paris same as Nicole
joy said on 21/Oct/07
Shes the same height as oprah, when she cam eon the oprah show after the legends ball.
~Nate~ said on 16/Oct/07
Ok Mariah is clearly not 5'7-here she is what 5'7-5'8 Paris Hilton-Mariah is clearly taller....look...

Kieran said on 16/Oct/07
shes definately over 5ft 7 due to la reid being like 5ft5 and when she stands beside him shes towering him, so maybe she is the 5ft 9.
myspace celebrity said on 12/Oct/07
i kinda agree with her quote, i would've never guessed 5'7 but with jermaine dupri and missy elliott next to her she does this tall
Viper said on 2/Oct/07
She really does look 5-6-5-7 in the one sweet day video.
Damone said on 2/Oct/07
I'm sorry, but she's nowhere near 5'9...have you watched the One Sweet Day video with Boyz 2 Men...she's standing next to one of the singer's, who's no more then 5'6 5'7..and she's not wearing heels..and the rest of the singers are towering over both of if she's 5'9 then the rest of Boyz 2 Men are well over 6'3 and up... pfft..
jody said on 29/Sep/07
it seems like mariah carey's 5'8'' minimum w/o heels. because she has a curve..and er robustness makes her that much suits her whole body with that height. probably with heels, she's tall about 5'10''
Anonymous said on 24/Sep/07
I saw her at the Dylan hotel in Amsterdam, in the summer of 2005 i guess &nd it was amazing... She wore high heels yes but not THAT high Maybe 3 inch heels. And she stood next 2 me.. I guess she was about 5'11 maybe 6 feet with heels
~Nate~ said on 19/Sep/07
LOL Mariah didnt have a date to the legends ball! how funny she never had one but u claim she did and u happen to know how tall he was....thats ok we love liars here! :D
Eduard24 said on 18/Sep/07
When I met her in the concert, I think she's just only 5'3 or 5'4 but when she stood beside me, we almost have the same height but she appears taller when she wear her very high heels.
Melanie said on 17/Sep/07
She's probably around 5'6 barefoot. I just watched Oprah's Legends Ball and Mariah's 6'6" date towered over her, and I'm sure she was wearing 3, 4 or maybe even 5 inch heels.

When you see footage where she's performing "When you believe" on stage together with Whitney Houston, it's clear that she's somewhat shorter than Whitney - who's 5'7 herself..

How true this is I don't know, but my old flat mate saw her fairly close up and reckons she is tiny as in not much over 5ft maybe 5'2. My flatmate is 5'6 and not the star struck type so I believe her. She may look bigger in concert because mostly you are either looking up or you are so high up it is hard to tell.
Anonymous said on 12/Aug/07
she's def taller than 5'7, saw her in concert and she was almost 6 ft in heels! yes, she wears high ones, but i'm 5'7 barefoot, and i only appear 5'9-5'10 in big heels. she's at least 5'8. upgrade???????

Some months ago I thought "What has happened here...? Some time ago I visited here she was on 173cm, now she is on 170cm ?? That's not very realistic. Okay, she is not the 5'9" she claims, but 172cm-173cm is realistic. She walked past me during her concert, and minding her 3-4 inches heels she was certainly not shorter than 5'8 !" Then I wrote

"Rob, bring her back to 5'8 or give her at least the 172cm (5'7.75) (that Tom Cruise has on this site and give HIM the 5'7 (170cm), because this is his actual height.)"

Nothing has happened since then, many people think the same as I do,
no 170cm or 175cm either, just a realistic 172cm-173cm !!

When do we get closer to the truth ? I mean come on! Mariah is 170, but Tom Cruise is 172cm... rrriiight....

i was in paris on june 29th 2007 and saw mariah carey outside of hotel de crillon where she stayed..and she was about an arms length away from me..she was wearing 4" heels cuz my sister has the exact same heels..and i am 5'10 and she seems about an inch or two taller than she is prolly about 172~173..she is also super gorgeous in person

Franco said on 27/Jun/07
you guys can say what you want but she's for me she was and will always be 171cm or 5'7.5 and with heels about 5'9.5 to 5'10

makes sense, she does look tallish with heels but thanks to her rounded body you get the impression she's 5'6 or so, not true, she' not 5'7 flat but not 5'8 either.

i have a theory...

maybe she used to be 5'8 years ago before gaining weight, infact i never doubted GLENN being 5'8 at all, i think glenn from the moment he gained all that weight lost at least 1cm and is 5'7.75 pretty noticeble in some of the latest pix, sometimes looks 5'8 sometimes shorter and being closer to the cam or slouching got nothing to do, when he stood straight in some pix he looked 5'7ish. :)

so for me TODAY mariah carey is 171cm and she used to be 173cm, my guess?
**** heels shrinked her spine a bit. :)
LD said on 24/Jun/07
Nate, no need to argue. I just told you a fact about me and my heels-- accept it or not. I noticed you didn't respond my point about the photographic evidence of Mariah standing with women who actually are tall.
glenn said on 22/Jun/07
i couldve sworn she was short when i saw her in 1990 to 1992.did she grow? i agree on 5-7 to 5-8 now.

LD your a woman you should know this 4"inch heels dont make you four inchers taller maybe 2.5 inches I mean my sister is 5'8 and in four inchers she's about 5'10-5'11 never 6ft and shes exactly 5'8 come on
Brad said on 15/Jun/07
We've met Long Island's finest. Campbell is a building compared to most females.She's a hair under 5' 10". MC rarely stands straight, she throws out one of her legs much like a model pose. She's 5' 8".
LD said on 15/Jun/07
Nate, you are making that statement to a woman. Since I wear them, I can tell you with absolute certainty that my 3" heels make this 5'6 1/2 inch woman as tall as my 5'9" man. Wow, this place is incredible! The photos are right here. Mariah was DWARFED standing next to 5'9" Naomi Cambell. Whitney Houston is standing right next to her in video and is taller. This woman is 5'9 only in heels-- just like me.

Get a clue, we've seen her from a foot away, she's 5' 8". Who have you met, yer postman? (Glenn line, copyright 2006). Naomi is a building in heels.

[Editor Rob: are you trying to do a Paris Hilton here?!]
~Nate~ said on 10/Jun/07
LD I'm not sure if you read what I posted about heels as well as the article written specifically about heels on this website. A Four Inch heel will only give you about 2 inches little over of height Meaning if Mariah 5'9 wears 4 inch stiletto heels that would make her a little over 5'11 wouldnt make her over 6' unless she wore bigger ones like the ones she wore when I met her.
LD said on 9/Jun/07
Nate, I see that you are aware that Mariah wears fantastically high heels all the time. If a 5'9" woman were to wear 3" (let alone 4" heels) all the time, that would make her 6' tall and therefore a couple of inches taller than the average man. There are a lot of photo links of her here and you sure don't see that in them. Naomi Campbell is 5'9 or 5'10 and she TOWERS over Mariah in the photos of them together.
LD said on 9/Jun/07
I don't know why some people want to believe Mariah is 5'8" or even taller. She is on video singing with 5'7" or 5'8" Whitney Houston and is clearly shorter. So she can't be 5'8". That is impossible.
Jen said on 6/Jun/07
Okay, I read all the comments. Actually, I do have an article that says 5'7" so that's not true about what's been reported. But that's irrelevant. Her stylist said she was 5'8 1/2" and all I know is, I was EXPECTING her to be tall since I've mostly read that she is 5'9". I am 5'10", we both had on heels, and when she walked past me at Pure, I couldn't believe how much shorter she was than me...I was like wtf...But yeah, 5'8 1/2 is a safe estimate.

Alex said on 4/Jun/07
5'7 is a bit too low. Not going to even comment on 5'5. 5'9 is a bit too high. 5'8 seems most accurate.

~Nate~ said on 13/May/07
LD you cant believe anyone would believe she's over 5'5 because your not one of the lucky few to have met her. She does wear four inch stiletto heels everyday of her life but the woman is tall. Back in the day she did wear the highest heels* but not anymore and by the way there spelt *Heels* not *Heals* Bottom line homegirl is 5'8 Min just ask Glenn or MHouillon or the other few who have pics with her who met her.
LD said on 12/May/07
The tallest she could possibly be is 5'6". As I said before, at 5'7" wearing the heels she wears, she wouldn't be shorter than Whitney. At 5'6 in 3 in heels (she wears at least that at all times), she'd be 5'9. She isn't any taller.
ice said on 11/May/07
LMAO at the 5'5 comment! No offense, you are entitled to your opinion, but I think 5'5 is downgrading too much. I can see 5'7, but not 5'5.
LD said on 27/Apr/07
I can't believe anyone would really think this woman is anywhere near 5'9" tall. She wears the highest heals possible all the times! If she were really 5'9", she would tower over most men. But she never looks taller than any man. And one quick check of youtube and you can see her singing live on Oprah next to a 5'8" inch Whitney wearing the highest heels possible and is still a couple of inches shorter than Whitney. Whitney was wearing heels also, just not high heels. She's probably about 5'5".
~Nate~ said on 20/Apr/07
Franco dont act like you know sh** please I already posted the Pic w/ 5'6.5 Beyonce and 6'2 ODB there is no way a girl who is 5'7 can wear four inch stiletto heels and look an inch shorter then a 6'2 man thats impossible unless there platforms Mariah are not Franco putting her at 5'8 min. Period thanks ;)

MARIAH CAREY is max 5'7 and dont come telling me anything above that. period.

Yeah I saw those pics Glenn she does look a lot shorter then Naomi! But Im not sure her heels dont look nearly as high as Naomi's but its a huge height diff. I'm no expert on Mariah I just have met her and have had many friends too and having a sister that is 5'9 that loves heels when we both met Mariah together we were eye to eye I know this is all he said she said but just my oppinion and Glenn's of course who claims 5'8-5'9 when he met her too. But hey you never know Ill let you know next time I meet her
ice said on 8/Mar/07
I don't know, Nate. You're right about her not wearing heels, but they look really thick. Do you have any clue how much height you get from those? It's clear she would get more than the standard one-inch a tennis shoe would give. Also, she looks even shorter in that pic than the one anonymous posted. I would say she looks about 2-2.5 inches shorter than Mira. Mira says she's 5'9, and it looks like she's wearing standard heels, so she's probably standing at about 5'11.5" This means Mariah would be about 5'9-5'9.5" in her boots. this makes me guess 5'7.5"-5'8" barefoot.

[Editor Rob: there was some playfull pics of Mariah Carey and Naomi campbell,

like this but then Reality, kicks in

really, seeing her with that ian wright fellow who I know isn't much taller than myself in person, its harder to argue 170+ for the lady. That and she's a few inches shy of latifah who can be seen with the glenn]

I met Mariah back in 2001. I am regular height, 5'6, and I met her when she was coming out of a limo with hundreds of other fans swarming around. Her bodygaurds backed us off, but she came over and met me!!!! I didn't get a picture, however, I was in flat sandals and she was in 2-3 inch heels, I must agree that she stood about 5'9 or 5'10. But definetely with lifts!

tom cruise is not 170, that`s imposible. penelope looks at least 2-3 inchees shorter and she is tall. she can`t be shorter that 5'5 and that makes tom at least 174 because penelope wears heels. katie is 175 and she is 5 cm taller with heels and that makes tom at least 175

I saw her on a concert in Germany. Already in the beginning of the concert I wondered why her background dancers all looked so small even up on stage. At the end of the concert she went off the stage and came down for a handshaking while singing one of the last songs for the evening (behind the security barrier of course). As there weren't that many people there I was able to stand in the first row. I was wearing sneakers and she high heels and I still was two inches taller than her and I am 5'7 tall.

The picture with Pharrell Williams closes the case on Mariah's height. If he is 5 foot 8 she is about the same height as him when he is wearing flip flops. There are dozens of picture of the both of them walking out of that hotel holding hands from several angels. Take 2 to 3 inches off Mariah's height because she is wearing heels and he is let say 5 foot 9 inches the picture makes Mariah Carey 5 foot 6 to 5 foot 7. Also who says Mariah might not be wearing 6 inch heels some of the time so if your 6 foot tall and you ment Mariah maybe she was wearing higher heels. Pharrell is 5 foot 8 the pictures don't lie people do.

I think she is 5'7". As for her being fat, I wouldn't be suprised if she is only a size 8(US). It is when the rest of Hollywood is size 0, you just look fat in comparison. She is just average sized and curvy.
skull said on 12/Dec/06
i was scamming through this and i'm guessing shes 5'6 to 5'7 cause she doesn't look that tall beyonce look taller than her and shes only 5'7 i don't know why you guys are even comparing her to guys height cause they lie about their height... i say everybody lie about their their height espicially celebrities. everybody wants to be taller and stuff... but with mariah case i don't know if shes telling the truth cause she kinda fat and fatter people looks shorter, while slimmer figures look taller than what they really are.
alyrose said on 10/Dec/06
Definitely taller than 5'7". She's only about 3-3.5" shorter, in heels, than Luther Vandross (6'3") when they did the Endless Love duet. She really is probably 5'8.5"-5'9".

When she walked infront of us and hugged my friend we were standing on the same level and when I said hi to her she looked me dead on in the eyes she could've been maybe half inch shorter then me, an inch at the most but she definitely was very tall. Like I said at the min Rob we should put her at 5'8.5, I'm going to ask my friends to make some eye witness accounts see what they say I'm not sure about them but for me she's 5'8.5 MIN.

Notice Mariah is wearing platforms whereas Whitney is wearing standard heels, and they only seem the same height when Whitney bends and stands awkwardly and keeps slouching, and Mariah stands straight.Click Here

No, Mariah is not 5'8, not even 5'7.

And look at her in this vid. They put her to stand with the shortest member of the band who is 5'7/5'8 (same height as Brandy - they used to date and perform Brokenhearted together) and she is significantly shorter. And he's in the flatest sneakers and so is Mariah. She is NOT 5'8. That's a joke.

[Editor Rob: true in a way....

actually that video with Wrighty is pretty damning...

I made a comment on Lemar's page back in 2005, Wright is no 5ft 7 guy though, trust me...:

"xaoxio says on 22/Jun/05
Rob, excuse me for saying this but can you prove that Lemar is 5'11"?
By the way, you may delete the previous comment on Lemar cause it's a lie.

[Editor Rob: Actually I think I may regrade him slightly Ian Wright and Lemar. Ok he's got a wee lean and is wearing converse trainers at that event, but I've met Ian back in 99 outside Celtic Park and he was negligibly taller than me. At the absolute most Wrighty looked 5ft 9 but seemed 174ish]"

Mariah 5'8? I don't think so. Here she is standing next to Ian Wright who is listed around 5'8 officially but is closer to 5'7 in real life. Anyway, even if he is really 5'8, she only looks taller than him when he bends forward and dances like a clown, even though she's in her huge high heeled shoes. If she was really over 5'5/5'6 she would have towered over him, or at least been significantly taller. Here's the clip from YouTube

No, Mariah Carey is not tall! - she is airbrushed to look tall but her height is 5ft6-7 maximum and have seen celebrity pictures of her standing next to very tall women and she comes to their shoulders so they must be 7ft tall if she is 6ft tall. All celebrities lie about their height and you can tell how tall they are by looking how far away their knees are from their calves (they have small lower legs that tell you the height of a person even if they have a taller back, it has to be in proportion to the rest of their body.

I know somebody who saw her in Aspen recently. She was closing in on 6' in ski boots. She IS 5' 8".
Alex said on 29/Nov/06
5'6 for Mariah? She looks at least 5'8 to me. Who knows.
Phil said on 16/Sep/06
Having seen a live video of "Against all odds" where Mariah is singing with the Irish band Westlife, she did not seem that tall. She was wearing heels close to 4 inches I'd say and should have towered over some of the shortish/average guys. That was not the case. She's at least 5'7 though imo, maybe a tad over.

I saw her ex at Springsteen show years ago. I'm sure he demanded her to wear no heels next to him.

I'm 5'11'' I think Mariah Carey is tall women 5'8''. My Friends name Pete shorter than Mariah Carey! (He's 5'7'') I think my friend name Pete is someguy that very tall in my group.
Brad said on 31/Jul/06
Mariah is a legit 5'8". She is constantly standing with her leg out pulling her height down. She towers over most people she stands next to for good reason: she's tall. I'm 6'5" with no judge of height towering over people, but, I met her at a Sony party years ago and she IS 5'8" without heels!
SweetCharity said on 30/Jul/06
I would jus say if you notice in the video with Pharell she is actually taller than Pharell by a good couple inches. I know she probably has on heels but she is definitely taller than him or his height without heels. I am 5'8''-5'9'' myself and I always wear heels just like Mariah. Mariah is clearly the same height as Whitney Houston. Whitney Houston is like 5'8'' or so. All you people saying Ciara is only five-seven are definitely lying because she towered Bow Wow who claimed himself to be five eight she is at least five nine. Paris is only 5'8'' it is listed in her compcard for Ford Models which I do not think would lie. Beyonce is about 5'5'' or 5'6'' and only appears tall because of her five-inch stiletto heels. Mariah also took an award from WMAs it was presented to her by Howie D. and AJ McLean of the Backstreet Boys. Howie is 5'6'' and AJ is 5'9'' and both of them were way shorter than her. Howie has a pic with her in his home and she clearly a good 2-3inches taller.

I though the celebs height was measured with no footwear on, or is Mariahs case different, because theres no way she's 5'8 without her height enhanching heels. Nate is just defending her because he's obviously got a thing for her
~Nate~ said on 20/Jul/06
LOL Mariah is nobody's 5'3 and she didn't admit she was either, they presented her with the celebrity legs of a goddess cause she does got some bangin legs on her. Mariah is not 5'3 or 5'9 in heels...Shes 5'9 without I mean just look at her and Vanessa Minillo who is also a tall girl standing next to Mariah in heels...Click Here Mariah at least 5'8 barefoot
Nelly said on 20/Jul/06
I heared in a tv-program for some time ago, that this year Mariah got the price for "Best celeb legs", and in the program they were saying that Mariah was 5'3, so it was possible for small girls to have very nice legs, and Mariah agreed... I have always thought that she was taller than 5'3, but after that, well I'm confused ... haha ..

Shes 5-9 in heels.
Nate said on 18/Jul/06
Oh my god! Maja ur right mariah isn't 5'8 she's 5'9 plus pharell can't wear lifts god forbid to make him look taller next to be a big girl...I've met mariah a few times and have posted pics of my friends who have she's 5'9 and unless you've met her you would know this, but I do agree that in pics she looks shorter then 5'9 prolly cause of horrible posture and she never stands straight
Maja said on 18/Jul/06
Look.. Mariah is not at all 5 ft 8 in. Just look at her in her video "Say something" togehter with Snoop and Pharrell Williams. Pharrell Wiliams is 5 ft 8,5 in. and Mariah Carey is standing right beside him in the video and she wears very high heels, still she is NOT taller than Pharrell Williams. She is 160 cm. that's it. If she was 5 ft 8 in. with those high heels on standing beside at Pharrell Williams she was ought to towering over Pharrell, but she's NOT. Look after it yuorself when you see the video next time.

Hmmm. 5'8"?. I don't know. Here's Mariah with the Editor-in-chief of Allure magazine Linda Well who has stated in a previous issue of the magazine that she's 5'7".

Pics from the ESPY's with Lance Armstrong are interesting. We know he's not that tall and have to assume she's wearing big heels right? I haven't seen a good full body pic though so it's hard to tell. You'd think she'd tower over him though if she was really 5'8...
Viper652 said on 7/Jul/06
5-6 looks to be correct.
