“Back in the days when I was young, I’m not a kid anymore. But some days I sit and wish I was a kid again.” – Ahmad 

It’s #FlashbackFriday again, and this week we’re taking a look back at Mariah Carey when she had long brown curly hair and a vision of love.

This morning, the 44-year-old diva performed on NBC’s Today Show to promote her fourteenth studio album, Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse. It comes as no surprise, but with over 200 million records sold, the “Thirsty” songstress has been crowned the top-selling female artist of all time…of ALL TIME (cue up Kanye).

So in honor of her illustrious career, we decided to take a look back at where it all began – 1990. Take a trip down memory lane and see how MiMi looked 25 years ago in the gallery below.
