(Newser) – Most of us would use the word "rancid" to describe long-expired milk. Mariah Carey used it to describe ... her pregnant body. The singer was so disgusted by her pregnant form that she wouldn’t let husband Nick Cannon see her unless she was covered up. “I had a towel on in the tub,” she tells People. “You think I would let Nick see me looking rancid like that?” She adds that she didn’t look at the scale while pregnant because she didn’t “want to feel that bad. I had, like, no bones for a while. It's important to me to feel my bones!”

But there was an upside to the pregnancy other than just the birth of her twins, the AP reports: "Right now I feel like pregnancy actually helped me vocally," Carey says. "At this moment my voice is in great shape."
