(April 23) - Pop superstar Mariah Carey has ruled out having kids of her own some day, saying they would make her feel uncomfortable and points to "traumatic stuff" during her childhood for the decision to remain childless.
The 38-year-old Carey told the UK version of OK! Magazine that having children of her own would leave her feeling "violated," adding "I know that's a kind of weird thing to say, but that's how I am.""For now I enjoy my dog Jack's company. It's definitely because of childhood traumatic stuff. The whole not wanting to have a baby as a baby." She did not specify what events turned her off on kids. Her parents divorced when she was three years old. "They just fought all the time," she told PEOPLE.The singer, who is in London to promote her new chart-topping album "E=MC2," said she had serious concerns about bringing up a child."It's hard to have kids in this world," she told the OK! reporter. "I don't think I could properly educate a child right now. Maybe in the future, but I actually haven't thought about it."

Lightening has struck!
Well, I never thought I would see the day, but a celebrity has received some press for her decision to be child-free.
Looks like Mariah Carey is perfectly happy sans children, but notice that a large chunk of the article focuses on her explanations for her decision. Always the childfree woman MUST provide a detailed accounting for her choice. Still, it's cool that Mariah is talking about it and that even cooler that some reporter was interested enough to report on it.
