Mariah Carey Reveals "The Art of Letting Go"

Superstar Mariah Carey has topped the charts for more than two decades.

And she's looking to continue that success - with a hotly anticipated new single despite a slew of recent injuries that threatened to bring her career to an end.

CNN's Nischelle Turner caught up with Carey at her Manhattan recording studio for late night interview where the diva shared all the highest notes.

From her new music, to the changes she's making in her life, to her advice to young music stars and her road to recovery since fracturing her shoulder, Carey reveals all.

“There’s an emotion to it as you listen to the song from start to finish,” Carey says about “The Art of Letting Go.” “You can tell that it’s me.”

Her token of wisdom for young girls who want to follow in her footsteps is a reflection of the song. “Listen to the art of letting go. This is about letting go of maybe something that's not right for you, but you just don't know how to make that final move and let go of it, like it's not easy. It’s something that you have to learn how to do. And I think that we’re all still learning.”

Nearly 100% recovered from her injuries, Carey says she’s also ready to let go of the pain.

Turns out the songstress also let go of longtime manager Randy Jackson, teaming up with Jermaine Dupri, who she’s made many hits with in the past.

”I will say this; she did not want to talk American Idol. She did not want to talk Miley Cyrus,” Turner reports.  "Miss Mariah wanted to talk about Miss Mariah.”

Billionaire Buffett And Son Howard Tackle World Hunger

Billionaire Warren Buffett is backing his son's mission to end world hunger. CNN's Poppy Harlow reports.

Son Howard Buffett is a farmer and philanthropist and has seen the ravages of malnourishment first-hand.

Now the younger man is armed with three billion dollars from his legendary father to do something about it.

"Your goal is to feed the world, frankly," Buffett says. "Well, that's kind of a big goal but it's a goal to shoot for."

The proud father says he's happy to help his children make the world a better place.

"On my 82nd birthday I doubled the commitment and I wouldn't have done that if I didn't feel terrifically about what they are doing.  They're tackling tough things. They could go out and have a hospital wing or do something with a library. They are tacking real problems."
