Mariah Carey blames 9/11, director for failure of ‘Glitter’

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Mariah Carey says her infamously bad movie debut Glitter failed because of 9/11.
The singer — who stars in new movie Precious – says her semi-biographical film was destined to bomb at the box office as it was released on exactly the same day as the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center eight years ago.


“That movie was released on September 11th, 2001 – could there be a worse day for that movie to come out? I don’t think so,” she said. “I don’t even know that many people even saw the movie so I don’t think it’s the worst thing ever done.”


“Glitter was a learning experience and I wouldn’t do it again if you paid me. But I didn’t have representation or anyone to tell me: ‘What you need is a great director’.”
Carey, 39, recently played down her reputation as a diva — insisting she is simply misunderstood.


“I have been through a lot that’s made me stronger,” she said. “They say: whatever doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. So I’ve been through that kind of stuff a few times.”
“A lot of people have very different opinions about me and it’s difficult to face them and to deal with them and to go on and to say: no, actually you’re wrong. I am this, I am not that.”

how random. I bet if it was GOOD movie it would have done well, even if it was the day sept. 11 happened.

What a load of bs. First she tries to blame 9/11, then she tries to blame the director and then she says she just wouldn't do it again? Which excuse is she sticking with? Surely someone like her could afford a firm well-standing representor who nonetheless would've realized that no director could play up whatever acting skill she supposedly possessed at the time.

However, I'm very interested to see her in Precious. I read the book about two weeks ago (so sad) and the trailer really makes her seem more legit. I'm tired of seeing her prancing with ponies and rainbows and all that glitters and maybe this role will finally help her establish real talent.

No it failed because it was really dumb. I remember during 9/11 MTV kept playing that glitter song and everytime i hear it i think of 9/11.

Exactly! Mariah needs to sit herself down somewhere, no one is thinking about Glitter anymore.

Maybe the movie would have done well if it was actually good? Not just Mariah running around in next to nothing showing off her 'fantastic' acting skills :S

I don't think it is fair to blame september 11 for the failure of her movie. If spiderman 2 came out on september 11, It wouldn't been a failure

The movie stunk and she can't act for s**t. Friends and I watched the movie as a joke, we laughed through the whole thing. The same way we watch Madonna's movies.
