Here is a shot of Barbara Walters and Mariah on their Tv special Weds. Night on Abc both are in heels and it is clear Mariah is 5'8 Min...
Alex said on 2/Mar/06
I agree with you Nate. Mariah isn't under 5'8. She's 5'8 exactly I think.

I met Mariah in Dallas back in 2003 for her Charmbracelet Tour. We are both about the same height. I am 5'9 and she is about 5'9 or 5'8. She always wears stilettos or heels, she wont wear anything with less than 3 inches. That day I met her I was wearing shoes that had 3 inch heels and I had to have been like 6 foot tall. She looked like about 6 foot to 6' a matter of fact, the first thing she said to me when I met her was "Wow, I love your shoes! And we're both the same height!"... She is very statuesque...definitely an Amazon woman. In real life she is about 5'8 to 5'9" tall.

Her Shoe size is 9 &nd a half...

And i personally think she's no shorter then 5'8 ... But everybody has their own opinion..!

I don't know exactly how tall she is, but she is less then five foot nine. My guess is she is no taller then 5 foot seven and one half.... When her father was ill and in North Shore Hospital, my wife, at one point, was standing right next to her, I was on the other side... she is taller then me and I'm five foot six. She is shorter then my wife, who is five foot nine and was wearing sneakers. Mariah was wearing boots with about a three inch heel. So far as I know, a three inch heel makes a person stand about two inches taller then flat footed... But who really cares??? I'd just like to know her shoe size, becasue she's got really sexy looking feet, as well as those shapely legs and full breasts!!!

Thats funny that Caity and I have met her and both agree that she's 5'9 however judging from pics Katie and Marissa are experts. Ok I'll stop the bitchyness but for real Mariah rarely ever stands straight up and in those pics with her Paul Jay Z and Kanye shes not even standing straight. Homegirl is 5'8 Min.
Katie said on 12/Feb/06
Hey Marissa, totally agree with you. But your Kanye West and Jay-Z pic didn't download so here's the pic.
Marissa said on 10/Feb/06
Mariah Carey is not 5'8" or 5'9". She is at most 5'7".
Here is a picture of her with Paul McCartney (5'10) and a picture of her with Jay-Z(6'1") and Kanye West (5'8.5"). You people need to get over the fact that she's not 5'8"-5'9". But why does it matter anyway. 5'8"-5'9' or not, she's still a great singer.

~Nate~ said on 27/Jan/06
Like I said many times LOL Mariah has to be at the bare min 5'8 because I've met her twice and when she was wearing heels she was the exact same height as me and im just a tad over 6. But when I was wearing my timbs Im 6'1 and she was in sneakers one occasion and she wasnt that much shorter then me. Plus my friends who have met her all claim she is 5'9. But 5'8-5'9 looks right to me from my own experience. And it is also hard to compare pics because she never really stands straight, especially in the view pic.
Caity said on 27/Jan/06
I've met Mariah carey. She is most definitely 5'9 because I am too and when I met her we were comparing heights and she took off her heels and stood next to me and we were exactly the same size. Hope that helps.
Tim said on 26/Jan/06
She's not 5'9". Here she is standing next to 6'1" Jay-Z looking 5" shorter than him in heels. If she were this height, she would be 6'-6'1" in heels and she would be closer to Jay-Z's height even if his shoes does give him 1-2".

She's taller then 5'7 .. She is 5'9.. &nd the last picture she's not standing straight she never does really:) &nd you dont see their foot wear..!!
A said on 25/Jan/06
Here she is with the ladies of The View. She's standing next to Star Jones (5'5") and looks a good 2" or so taller. So, she's 5'7".
Anonymous said on 24/Jan/06

&nd look her with the 6' Wyclef Jean... So i really think that if she puts out those heels she would Most Deffenately be 5'9 !!

Here is an recent intervieuw from Mariah ...
It was like 50 Questions... They also asked about her height!

35. Your height in centimeters?
I am 5 foot and 9 inches tall. You’ll have to translate that.

(5 foot, 9 inches are 175cm/1.75m)

Of course I’m taller when I’m wearing shoes.
People always think I’m tiny until they meet me for the first time. They’ll be like “Huh! You’re tall!”
Danny said on 17/Jan/06
Rob do you know how tall Nancy O'Nell is? She was an inch taller than Mariah Carey on the Golden Globe red carpet presentation.
~Nate~ said on 16/Jan/06
No Jake Mariah is standing on a lower level then Beyonce and Versace, look at a picture where you can really see their feet....
~Nate~ said on 13/Jan/06
In that pic look at Ushers feet! I believe its obvious he has lifts on as well as Mariah isnt standing is another pic of Mariah and Usher.. another... Mariah is 5'8 Min.
Marc said on 10/Jan/06
Mariah is always wearing big ass heels, so she can be up around 6'0" when she is.
preston Mui said on 27/Dec/05
At the Charmabracelet tour she had a check up with the doctor and they said she was 5'8.5. i am the dancer that was at her tour.
Danny said on 19/Dec/05
MAriah looked 3 inches shorter than Terence in four inches. So with heels she was around 178-179 and sinches four inches heels make you about 2.5 inches taller 5'8 for mariah seems right on the nose.
~Nate~ said on 15/Dec/05
Ok Mariah in her standard four inchers standing beside 6'1-6'2 Terrence Howard.....
Tall Girl said on 30/Nov/05
I happen to have met Mariah recently and i'm 5'8"....yes, she was wearin heels but they really weren't that high.....and she was definitely about 6ft on heals cos she was almost my boyfriends height, which is 6'1.5" i'm guessin she probably is 5'8"'s hard to tell someone's height from a picture...especially when ur tryna compare it to someone else's due to the fact that the two people might now be standin properly...well, i seen her in person and she's def no shorter than 5'7.5" at the VERY least.
Danny said on 21/Nov/05
I still believe she's 172cm don't you Rob???//
Michelle said on 17/Nov/05
She 173cm for sure when I met her she was only 2 inches shorter than me. We were in the same heels. I'm a fairly tall girl at 5'10 178cm. Sorry I don't have a picture of it. But I knew she was 2 inches shorter because I know for sure I'm exactly 5'10!!! yay
~Nate~ said on 16/Nov/05
Ok when Mariah was presented with the award for album of the year Shannon Elizabeth presented it and her and Mariah were about the same height, shannon had maybe a 1/4 inch on Mariah but thats all.
~Nate~ said on 13/Nov/05
So this Tuesday Nov 15 is the Vibe awards and Mariah will be presented with an award from Shannon Elizabeth, Mariah won all four awards and Ill see if I can compare her heights to the other people.
Lorelle said on 9/Nov/05
Mariah is 5'9 12 because iam 5'9 12 and she was the same height as me
~Nate~ said on 5/Nov/05
Carey pours herself a glass of red wine, kicks off her 9 1/2 shoes, stretches her suprisinlgy tall 5 - foot - 8 1/2 inch frame on a couch, and pulls up a blanket... Thats what the magazine says, I know there is another magazine from Blender Claiming she is 5'9, I'll try to find that one as well.

What has my spelling got to do with it ? It was obvz readable if u jst read it ? And I said that because you then said to the replay 'Am no expert' ? That sounds to me like u were changing storys, thanks.
~Nate~ said on 2/Nov/05
Ok before you start attacking me Chloee I'm going to need for you to learn how to spell, and construct a sentence correctly was that even English you were speaking? Anyways I said I was a fashion designer because I am, I am a student at the Fashion Arts school here in San Diego California. I design clothing for projects and have a book of them, that makes me a designer maybe nobody's wearing my clothes yet but nevertheless I am a designer, thanks.

Here is a pic of 5'5 Victoria Beckham standing straight while Mariah is doing her usual hip sway stance post and not standing striaght, this must prove shes 5'8.

~Nate~ said on 30/Oct/05
Mariah standing next to Victoria Beckham who you have listed at 5'5.5 both are slanting, Mariah is definitely 5'8 Min.
~Nate~ said on 19/Oct/05
Wow your pretty tall, if you wear 4 inch heels with a platform on them you will be like 6ft...However if you wear regular 4 inch heels you'd prolly top out at about 5'10-5'11. LOL I'm no expert really but a few of my friends who model are about 5'8-5'9 and in four inch heels they are still shorter then me, and I'm just about 6'1.
Anonymous said on 18/Oct/05
Is it ture nate that if u wear 4 inch heels u dont achuly increase ur height by 4 inches .. Iam practly 5'8 so if i was to wear them a'd be wot ? 5'11 ?
~Nate~ said on 10/Oct/05

Thats funny Crystal because all of my other die hard Mariah fan friends asked her and she told them all 5' funny she told you a totally different number then everyone else. This is a joke rob I have the proof in my pic so does the other girl who posted her pic.
Michael said on 3/Oct/05
Crystal, you're on crack. The national average for women is 5'4", and there is simply no way Mariah is that short. She's *at least* three inches above that, if not more.
Crystal said on 3/Oct/05
MARIAH IS NOT 5'8 SHE TOLD ME she WAS 5'7 1/2 171cm like whitney houston what rubbish 5'8 maybe with certain heels she doesn't look that tall to me she doesn't appear above the national average.
~Nate~ said on 2/Oct/05
Ok here is the pic of me and Mariah, now I recently had a physical and my exact height is 6ft and 3/4 so a smidge away from 6'1. With my shoes on 6'1.5. NOW in this pic I am standing in the back on a higher level then Mariah as you can tell by looking at our feet, also Mariah has her hip sway stance knocking her down some inches. Here is the pic..I am the darkest one in the pic on the rightside of MC. here is a more close up shot of us that I cropped.... I am standing straight Mariah is not and is also standing on a lower level ground then I am, take a look at our feet in the first pic you can see my white sneaker while you cant see Mariahs feet because she is standing lower then me even though she's in 4 inch heels. When I hugged her we were standing on the same level and she was about my height we looked eye to eye. Putting Mariah at 5'8.5 Min. THE END
~Nate~ said on 1/Oct/05
Yeah to the girl who has the pic with her and met her, thank you!! We peeps that actually had the chance to meet her know that she is really 5'8-5'9! Hey rob I'll upload my pic of me and Mariah I have a few so Im trying to choose a good one!
jcdorz said on 1/Oct/05
No tall woman wears heels constantly, never photographed without them and if she is, she's standing on her tiptoes, if she's really 5'9". Here heels in some of those pictures look even higher than 4 inches, how do we know they are 4 inches. She looks like she's 5'6" or maybe a tad more. No woman who is 5'9" has the need to appear tall because they are tall.
~Nate~ said on 28/Sep/05
Here's a pic with Mira Sorvino in Boots with a heel and Mariah with snow boots. I used to live in Aspen and I'm not sure who else has worn snow boots but they do nothing for your height like at all, lol. Anyways heres Mariah in snow boots and Mira in heels. Mariah still looks tall without her trusty four inchers....
~Nate~ said on 28/Sep/05
Mariah standing next to Mira Sorvino listed anywhere from 5'9-5'11
Danny said on 27/Sep/05
Rob take a look at another Mariah Carey picture
Could she be shorter than 5'8
look closely at her heel it has a big platform which makes her look tall when she isn't
~Nate~ said on 25/Sep/05
Mariah posing next to 5'3 Brittany Murphy at Versace's Store opening and Mariah has her head down and is not standing straight while Brittany is look at the difference between them.... there is also a pic of Brittany standing next to 5'6 1/2 Jessica Alba here....
How come Brittany's head comes up to about Jessica Alba's Eyebrow who stands at 5'6.5' but she doesnt even come up to Mariahs eyebrow while she is standing straight and Mariah isn't with her head down? Hmm maybe because she is 5'8-5'9.
~Nate~ said on 20/Sep/05
Ok Beyonce is listed anywhere from 5'6/5'7 and Mariah is a little bit taller then her in this pic and Mariah is standing on a lower platform..
Here is the pic of their feet showing Mariah standing Lower then Beyonce and Versace is 5'8/5'9
~Nate~ said on 19/Sep/05
Ok so I just watched the show its good to be Mariah Carey on E! And Her stylist had this to say "Mariah is about 5'8/5'9 And with her stiletto's she's about 6ft, and she refuses to wear heels less then four inches". I also just asked my friend Derrick who met her, he said that Mariah is short probably about 5'9/5'10, Granted Derrick is 6'4. I don't think she's as tall as 5'10 personally but not as short as 5'7 or 5'6, 5'5 as some are claiming on this site, I'd say Rob has it right 5'8/5'9.
TheMan said on 18/Sep/05
I think shes more like 5,6 i do notice she trys to look really tall usually with massive heels i can usually tell tall people and i think although above average in height shes no more than 5,6. Basicly anyone could look tall with heals on fact she just wears massive ones. Im just not going to credit someone whos not actually all that tall lol.
anonymous said on 18/Sep/05
If Whitney houston and Mariah are 173cm then Bobby brown will be near the 180cm range and he doesn't appear that even to your opinion Rob, so don't you think Mariah and whitney are 171cm. I do agree they have very same heights and also very same singing diva voices, they got a lot in common.
~Nate~ said on 17/Sep/05
OOps Forgot to post it but here is the pic of Mariah Carey and 5'8.5 Randy Jackson
~Nate~ said on 14/Sep/05
Mariah standing next to Randy Jackson who you have listed as 5'8.5' also he is wearing boots. Mariah is still a few inches taller and she's wearing heels, you take off the heels, you take off his boots and I think she'll still be taller. then him, if not the same height.
~Nate~ said on 14/Sep/05
Ok, here is a pic of Bono and Mariah, now you have Bono listed on this site at 5'6.5' and in this pic Mariah is wearing flats and still appears two or three inches taller then him.

*Take a look at her footwear, Flat-
So Rob I agree with you Mariah is anywhere between 5'8 and 5'9, thanks ;)
~Nate~ said on 13/Sep/05
Anon, I'm about to prove you wrong, yet again which is fairly easy for me,, here is an even better pic Mariah is even slouched over in the pic, everyone knows Mariah never stands straight, even Rob said this. AND FYI Usher is not 5'7, look on this site Rob has him listed at 5'8.5 which is exactly what my friend said when I asked how tall Usher is, shes completly obsessed with him shes met like twice dude. So anyways Rob also has Ciara listed at 5'7.5 and even when she wears heels she is just about the same height as Usher at the VMAs maybe a half an inch taller. So Mariah has to be at least 5'8, alright no more arguing with anyone I believe it, obviously Rob believes and I met her so if you don't believe she's 5'8 you dont have to because I know the truth. ;)
anon said on 13/Sep/05
Um, Nate, take another look at the second pic you posted. Mariah is standing on HIGHER GROUND. She's not towering over Usher, unless his legs are stumps - you'll see that their knees are WAY out of alignment. This picture is far more accurate:

Mariah is about an inch taller in that photo, and has better posture than the slightly slouching Usher. They're standing at the podium, which as you can see from the pic you posted is level ground.

Now, since Usher is 5'7.5'' MAX, this confirms Mariah is anywhere between 5'6.5''-5'7''. I personally think she's 5'7''.

On another note, why is she completely obsessed with wanting people to think she's taller, what with all her fabricated heights? Pure vanity.
~Nate~ said on 8/Sep/05
Ok let me ask ya'll a question, if Mariah is 5'5-5'7 like you guys THINK. Then how come Beyonce who is anywhere from 5'6-5'7 is shorter then Usher. And Michelle in Destiny's Child is taller then Beyonce is also shorter then Usher. They all wear outrageous heels and they're still smaller. Look at this pic from the World Music Awards-
*Now Mariah is a lot taller then Usher meaning she has to be taller then 5'7, look at this pic with Mariah and Usher-
And do not say anything about the heels because Destiny's Child wears heels just as big as Mariah. So Rob, I think your right on with the 5'8 height for Mariah I say 5'8 Minimum so this works for me I wont protest anymore! lol
Danny said on 7/Sep/05
Here is the evidence that Mariah carey is just slightly taller than Oprah and Oprah was leaning
I think she 171cm about 5'7 like Whitney Houston
~Nate~ said on 6/Sep/05
Hey Rob, Ive seen Brandy listed anywhere from 5'7-5'9 and although shes tall I think 5'7-5'8 is the right height for her I saw her in concert once and she looked this height. Anyways I found a pic with Mariah and Brandy and Mariah appears to be about an inch or two taller then brandy even though Brandy is leaning in and has big hair! LOL anyways let me know what you think Rob
Danny said on 6/Sep/05
Rob just change her back to 171cm she deserve being that tall she just tippy toes
Hani said on 5/Sep/05
Are you guys sure she is even 5'8,she was 2_3 inches shorter than Jay Leno and she had heels on..!!!
~Nate~ said on 5/Sep/05
Mariah is by no means 5'11 barefoot, I highly doubt this, but I do believe she's about 5'8.5-5'9 without heels, that sounds about right. But she was a tad taller then me, she could've been wearing bigger heels then usual but when I hugged her she was a little taller then me.
anon said on 5/Sep/05
Nate, if you were 6'1.5'' in your shoes, and Mariah is 5'9'' in heels that, as you say, give her 2.5 inches MAX, she should've only been 5'11.5'. She should not have been a "tad taller" than you as you claim.

For your claim to hold merit she'd need to be about 5'11.5'' barefoot, and I highly doubt that's the case.
Danny said on 5/Sep/05
After seeing those photos I think she might be 5'8. But she might be standing next to short people so I still think she's 172cm
~Nate~ said on 4/Sep/05
Ok David thats sad Rob called you out and knows ur a fake! Anyways you know absolutely nothing about Heels, a four inch heel will not give you four inches, it will give you about 2.5 inches MAX, get over it Buddy. How come she was wearing four inch heels when she met me and was a tad taller then me when I was wearing my Timbs that made me 6'1.5 However when you met her she was wearing four inch heels and she was only 5'9? Your such a fake dude, move on.

Mariah standing next to 5'1 Nicole Richie

Ok I found a pic of Faith Hill who is listed at 5'8 standing close to Mariah, now Mariah has her head down and she's still almost as tall with her head down, so if it was up Im guessing Mariah would be taller. I think the reason Mariah doesnt look like a 5'9er is because she's not as skinny as the average girl in Hollywood, I mean she's skinny but she's also got a gorgeous curvy figure that might make her look shorter then she actually is, heres the pic.

Mariah standing next to 5'6 Mary J Blige, I really do think Mary J.Blige is at least 5'6 because on an episode of Moesha she was a tad smaller then 5'7 Brandy, anyways heres the pic...
J. said on 4/Sep/05
Okay, I don't want to get caught in the crossfires of the 'Mariah-ain't-5'9"-YES-she-is-I-met-her" wars! :-) BUT ... the World Music Awards were held a few nights ago in Hollywood. Mariah and Snoop Dogg were on stage together. Mariah had on her 4-inchers as usual, Snoop had on his trademark Converse All-Stars which barely give you an inch. Needless to say, Snoop still towered over Mariah like it was nothing. I've seen Snoop in person and he without a doubt AT LEAST 6'4" (his laidback posture may give the impression that he's a tad shorter). So, with that in mind, would a 5'8"- 5'9" woman, who likes 4" heels (this would put her in the 6'0"- 6'1" range) really get towered over like that by a 6'4" guy???
~Nate~ said on 4/Sep/05
OMG! Rob you are so right! now they are guessing my height! Yes because I lie about my height! Get a life Blue and Z2 sheesh! LOL Anyways yes I'm 6.05 barefoot and 6'1 and change with my timberlands on which I was wearing at the ecounter with Mariah
~Nate~ said on 4/Sep/05
Also I'm not sure how many people watched "Access Granted" Making the video of "Shake It Off". Mariah's best friend Rapper Dabrat has always claimed in her songs that she is 5'5. In the scene where Mariah took off her heels and stood next to Dabrat who not only was she wearing shoes had a hat on and puffy hair, Mariah was still very much taller then her. You can DL The segment on, Click the archives "Media" and you will find it there, Trust Mariah's 5'9. On the show "Its Good To Be Mariah Carey" Which aired earlier this year on E!, her stylist said and I quote "Mariah stands at about 5'8 and refuses to wear a heel less then 4 inches, so she stands at about 6ft tall" Now as for Whitney claiming that she is 5'7 I wouldn't trust anything someone says that uses the slogan "Crack is whack" but enters rehab for a drug problem. Really Even if Mariah is 5'5, which she is not it really doesnt matter cause at the end of the day shes still the best selling female recording artist in history with more #1's then any other female artist so I'm pretty sure its not that big of a deal, even though she is 5'9! LOL
~Nate~ said on 4/Sep/05
LOL Thank you Rob! I'm just over 6ft barefoot and 6'1.5 in my timberlands which I was wearing when I met Mariah, now if I was 6'1.5 at the time of meeting Mariah, and she was wearing four inch heels and she was standing a little taller then me, less then a half inch taller then me, this means without the shoes she's 5'9 Max, 5'8.5 Min. When I met her while she was wearing sandals and I was wearing my old school adidas, she was only a little bit shorter then me. maybe 2.5 inches shorter then me because the top of her head met just above my cheekbone, which is exactly where my sister meets me when we stand next to eachother, my sister is exactly 5'9 she just measured for me. When she is wearing a four inch J.Lo heels she is exactly as tall as me (My sister). In the pic Im about to send Rob, all us tall guys in the back of Mariah are standing on a top ledge behind her as Rob will be able to tell. Mariah and the girls are standing lower then us, considerably and Mariah is up to my eye, but thats only because of the difference in the platforms we are standing on.
comment said on 3/Sep/05
Rob when are you going to change her back to 171 172cm 1 think it's more accurate she doesn't look like a 5'9 girl with heels on
Blue said on 3/Sep/05
Editor...It's unlikely, very unlikely he remeasured himself, and 'properly' no less. He's 6' and that's that.
~Nate~ said on 3/Sep/05
Like I said before, my friends are in modeling and fashion and wear stiletto's all the time. Im sorry that some of you dont know this but Mariah has said in many interviews that ever since she was a little girl she's walked on her tippy toes and her feet repel flats. She refuses to wear a heel less then four inches. Anyways, a four inch stiletto heel will give you just about 2.5 inches to your height it would by no means make you four inches taller unless your standing on a platform. Didn't I also say before that I've met Mariah while she had sandals on and she was at best 5'10, at the minimum 5'8.5, because my sister is 5'9 and change and when we stand together she hits my cheekbone as did Mariah when I met her the time she was wearing FLAT sandals. If Mariah is not 5'9, at the bare minimum she can be 5'8.5, I know you agree with me Rob! You should meet her Rob then we can stop all this! haha
Blue said on 2/Sep/05
Nate...I've been reading this forum's entire page. Z2 said some very wise things. I agree with Z2 and anonymous. You said something to Z2 about how he should keep his comments to himself unless he's met Mariah. That's bull. Because some people on this site have met Mariah and that's still not good enough for you. Also, this site isn't about you, so you get over yourself. Also, I read your debate with Z2 and I agree with Z2. Where in his post was he giving you attitude. Z2 put it best, it is in your head. And another thing half the people on this site agree that Mariah is not 5'9", she doesn't even look it. On a MTV Cribs about her house, Mariah spent half the time tip-toeing throught the entire filming. Only a short person would do this, and don't say it's because she's used to heels. She's tip-toeing because she wants to be taller. Anyways, I agree with Z2. And don't forget to write me back to yell at me. Oh, wait, you can't, you promised the editor you wouldn't argue anymore.
~Nate~ said on 2/Sep/05
My friend Justine is exactly 5'10, she is standing next to Mariah in the red dress. She and Mariah are about the same she told me, however, Justine was wearing about a 3 inch heel comparable to Mariahs four inch heel. In the pic Mariah is standing straight up but Justine is. Justine said Mariah was just a tad shorter then her and believes Mariah is Max 5'9, bare minimum 5'8.5 Check it out for yourself....
And Z2 your right, I shouldnt jump down everyone's throats for their oppinions Im sorry about that. You and everyone else are entitled to your own oppinion, even though you are wrong. ;)
~Nate~ said on 2/Sep/05
Z2, please get over yourself and move on, it aint about you. Anyways yes, I'm 6'1 exactly I just measured myself yet again and Mariah is taller then me by maybe 1/4 inch. I showed Rob my pics I've met her a few times now so yes Mariah is 5'9, 5 of my friends who met her also had the opportunity to ask her how tall she is and what do you know! She said she was 5'9! How funny that she didnt say she wa 5'6.5, even on her MTV Special for "Shining Through The Rain" She claimed she was 5'9, thats remarkable.

~Nate~ I read what you wrote and like I said before, "It's all in your head." You believe I was giving you attitude. You could show my "post"(the one you think I'm giving you attitude), to any psychologist, the public, or any other group and they would not conclude what you've concluded(the attitude). Everyone is entitled to an opinion. Like I said before, I'll make an opinion on someones height, and someone else will be quick to "question" my opinion. A few people on this site agree that Mariah is NOT 5'9" and is more likely 5'6" - 5'7". I believe Mariah is closer to 5'5". And I will add, people on this "Mariah Carey" site post their opinions of Mariah and you SLAM them. You won't even let them have their own opinion, and then you "tell them off." So, then I come along and call you out and now you don't like it. Those other people don't like it when you call them out on their Mariah height opinion. You live on this page and when someone new comes here trying to give thier opinion, you call them out. You are in DENIAL. You are VERY SENSITIVE. When someone calls you out, you slam them and their opinion. "anonymous" met Mariah Carey and Mariah told "anonymous" that she was 5'6.5" You then don't believe "anonymous." Why do you insist on slamming everyones "celebrity sighting encounter?" Just because you claim you've met Mariah, what makes people believe your encounter? Because you met her? That's not proof. Just don't go around telling everyone their "encounters" are wrong. You are saying everyones encounter(Mariah telling these people her height) is wrong and yours is the correct one--and yours is NOT. And as for your own height, you claim you're 6'1"(that's "code" for 6'). If you were a true 6'1" you'd say 6'2". This debate back and forth is pointless because it's like having a debate with a child(pre-schooler).

Mariah Carey is not 5'8. She 5'6.5 standing next to olivia Newton John. She could be 5'7 like whitney houston. 5'8-9 for both of them is definitely impossible

Also I would like to say that just because someone wears 4 inch stiletto's it doesn't make them 4 inches taller. I would know about this because my friend is in the modeling business and I have a lot of friends in fashion. A 4 inch heel will you give you about 2 inches, the only way a 4 inch heel would give u 4 inches is if they're platforms.
~Nate~ said on 31/Aug/05
Your very right about that one Rob! LOL They would tell me that I'm really not 6'1, even though I played Highschool Basketball as a center! LOL Its not a big deal to me, I'm a nobody so I dont feel that I need to lie about my height! :D
anonymous said on 31/Aug/05
I agree with Z2 she is always in outrageous heels so in my opinion is no more than 5ft 6.5. She told me when I asked her her height. Nate if you argue that she 5'9 I don't think Rob is going to give her 5'9 anyway so who cares
~Nate~ said on 30/Aug/05
Oh No Z2, first of all you don't need to give me attitude, unless you've met Mariah you need to keep your comments to yourself. I'm sure if you were a teacher your class would be speculation 101. And Secondly I've met Paris as well as Mariah both are about 5'8 and change. I have pictures of me standing next to Mariah, I was wearing my timberland boots which gave me about a 2 inch advantage while Mariah was wearing her 4 inch stiletto's. I'm just over 6ft tall and Mariah even with my boots was standing slightly taller then me. Mariah is 5'9. 5'5? Are you serious, you are ridiculous dude.
Z2 said on 30/Aug/05
~Nate~, First if all, Rosie O'Donnell isn't 5'7", she's 5'6". Paris Hilton is nowhere near 5'8". Mariah Carey was standing next to 5'6" Whitney Houston at a MTV show(same outfit, same heels). The two were about the same height. Mariah Carey is closer to 5'5" and Whitney is closer to 5'6".
~Nate~ said on 29/Aug/05
Thanks Rob! Now what dod I have to do to get a couple more CM!!! LOL
~Nate~ said on 23/Aug/05
Ok and as for the person who said "I wouldn't call her tall, I'm taller than her and I'm only average height". What you need to take an account for is what is average to this person? And is this person male or female? I just researched this on Google and it says The average female is 5'4, Obviously Mariah cannot be under that. The Average male is 5'10, Obviously Mariah can be shorter then this.
~Nate~ said on 23/Aug/05
Ok I'm not the only one who has met her and said that she is tall, I say 5'9. When my friend Christina also had the opportunity to meet Mariah, my friend Christina is a model and she likes to wear about 4 inch stiletto's like everyday! lol Anyways when she met her she was wearing the 4 inchers and said her and Mariah were exactly the same exact height, as Mariah was wearing 4 inchers as well.
CelebHeights Editor said on 23/Aug/05
From Mariah's fanclub, she has supposedly stated her height as 5ft 8.5 and weight of 130lbs.

From Gossip newsgroup:
"I've met Mariah Carey several times. She's about 5'8", 135 pounds."
MHouillon said on 2/Aug/05
No, 5'9 isn't very realistic. And 5'7.5 isn't , too. She's a 173cm maximum. See my last posting down here...
Nate said on 26/Jul/05
Ok LOL I have one more try to get the Editor to change Mariah's height to 5'9! LOL Ellen is 5'8 and when Mariah was on the show wearing 4 inch heels she TOWERED over Ellen, and heres a pic of Jackie Chan (Who is listed anywhere from 5'8-5'11) standing next to Mariah again she towers over him in 4 inch heels. Hopes this helps kids.......
Standing Next to 5'8 Faith Hill, Mariahs head is also down...
Nate said on 21/Jul/05
Ummm, by the way "Heightfreek" I'm going to need for you to leave your speculations at the door buddy unless you've met her. Thanks

PS Since your so smart those are not flats Serena is wearing, if you look closer thats about a 1.5-2inch heel. Thanks
Heightfreek said on 20/Jul/05
Ummm, by the way Nate, Serena is clearly wearing flat shoes in the pic you provided, while Mariah is clearly wearing 2-3 inch heels. Serena is therefore much taller. Serena's height is probalbly 5-9. Mariah can not be more than 5-8, 5-7 would be more accurate.
Issheuhboy said on 19/Jul/05
Well, it was actually Rob who posted that pic, mine was just to show Carey has height "issues", leading to getting herself insectised on her album cover. And that Ratner pic you posted looks a little funny, with the posture etc. - I don't mean to be pedantic (ped - feet, geddit? No. OK) but you can't see their shoes etc. But if you've met her, well...that's different and more conclusive. But she does seem to always wear heels, fudging her height accuracy a lot.
Nate said on 18/Jul/05
And the person Issheuhboy who posted the pic of Brett Rattner towering over Mariah in the link, that was a bad pic Mariah was standing straight up and the angle was off, I have a straight on shot right here that proves my theory that Mariah is 5'9...
Nate said on 15/Jul/05
Sorry to burst your bubbles everybody but your wrong on this one. I recently got the opportunity to meet Mariah on two occasions and have pics for proof. The first time she was wearing about 4 inch heels and I'm exactly 6'1 in shoes and she was maybe a tiny bit shorter then me. Let me also add that I'm a designer so when people say 4 inch heels make you 4 inches taller thats entirely wrong they make you maybe 2-3 inches taller max. I also met her while she was wearing sandals and she appeared a little taller then 5'9.
Nathan said on 14/Jul/05
I have pictures with Mariah if anyone cares to see..I'm about 6'1 and when I met Mariah she had on about 3-4 inch heels and we looked eye to eye with eachother..I also met her during the trl taping two years ago and she seemed to be at the least 5'9 because I'm 6'1. Shes pretty tall.
MHouillon said on 7/Apr/05
Okay, who was on the concert? I knew, I should have added that she did not wear "massive looking 4 inch heels". When she was on stage, we were pretty close to her, her heels were about normal 3 inches. Mrs Carey is definitely wrong with her 5´9" claiming. But I think she should be a solid 5´8". Oh, I´m listening to the radio and guess which song is played right now... "It´s like that" by Mariah... strange...very strange....Scully? Yes, Mulder?....

Best wishes to everyone.
J. said on 5/Apr/05
Yeah, that proves that Mariah's around 5'7". With her massive looking 4 inch heels, she is 5'11".
MHouillon said on 5/Apr/05
Nonsense, jimbo ! Me and my girlfriend (she´s 5´11.25",181cm) were on a concert in Hamburg and in the beginning Mariah was walking thru the audience lines (ofcourse, guided by bodyguards). She was almost as tall as my girlfriend (I´d say, she was 5´11" -180cm-). Okay, Mariah´s high heels were really high, but reduce them and she should be at minimum 5´7.5-5´8" (172cm-173cm). Never ever 5´6" (168cm)!!!!
J. said on 31/Mar/05
I was looking at Mariah on TV the other night and you know what, there's no way in hell that she is the 5'9" that she always has said she was. If you notice, she's ALWAYS in giant heels and publicity photos of her always have her looking like a giantress! (The magic of airbrushing). In reality, Mariah's in the 5'6"- 5'7" range. If she really were 5'9" barefoot like she has said, she'd be 6'1"- 6'2" with her mega heels on but she's defintely not.
Jimbo said on 24/Mar/05
I saw a photograph of mariah carey standing beside 5'8 and a half cate blanchet cate was about an inch and a half taller than mariah . No way is mariah 5'9, 5'7 looks about right .
Flavia said on 14/Mar/05
She's not 5'9" ??
she looks SO tall on her #1s CD. wow..
Mr. R said on 10/Mar/05
Uh, I hate to tell you, but Bobby Brown is not 5'11", but he is 5'9". I crashed the HBO party after Whitney's concert, and spoke with him for awhile! I am 5'11.05".
Ricardo said on 4/Mar/05
Mariah is not 5'9" saw her on TRL yesterday, more like 5'6" or 5'7". she was a niticeable 4 inches shorter than damien fahey who is about 6'1" or 6'2" even though she was wearing 3 inch heels.
jimbo said on 16/Feb/05
I dont believe she is 5'9 , whitney houston is only 5'7 she said so herself but when ever I see whitney and mariah standing together , whitney is always an inch taller than mariah , I would say mariah carey is about 5'6 .
