Mariah Carey claims she has only been intimate with five men in her life.
In the cover story of the August Cosmopolitan, the now 49-year old diva says she considers herself "kind of a prude" -- despite her glamorous image.
First married to her producer Tommy Mottola, Carey later wed (and split from) singer-actor Nick Cannon. She also had serious relationships with singer Luis Miguel, Australian media mogul James Packer and baseball superstar Derek Jeter.
The photo-heavy article includes Mariah reflecting on climb to success: "They have no idea what I went through as a child to even get to be an 18-year-old girl with a record deal... This was before you could just go on YouTube and sing."
And she isn't too impressed by today's younger crop of artists: "A lot of artists say they write, but they don't really write. No offense to anybody, that's just what I've seen."
