  • Megan from Wilmington, DeDoes anyone know who Mariah may have wrote this song about? She ahs a new song on her new album E=MC2 called "FOR THE RECORD" and there is a quote in it: "And for the record, I told you underneath the stars, that you belong to me" I believe she may be referring to this song.....just curious.
