GLITTER

After a cameo appearance in 1999's "The bachelor", it was time for Mariah to play the leading part in a movie. There were already plans for this movie in 1999, then it was called "All that glitters", but fans had to wait until September 20, 2001 to see the movie "Glitter". Based loosely on Mariah's own life, it tells the story of a mixed-race woman who is abandoned by her white father and taken from her black mother to be raised by foster parents. After years of hardship she finds fame and fortune as a 1980s pop star, then goes looking for her mother.

Mariah about the movie: "It's in the early 80's, in the club scene of that time. I play a singer, Billie, who's half-breed, from a white father and a black mother. Billie grows up in a foster home, because her mother abandonned her. Later on she meets a DJ and becomes a star in just one night. The point is, that all this time she waits for her mother to return. As you can see, this is far away from my reality, because I couldn't have a closest relationship with my own mother. When she's not with me, she calls like every 5 minutes."

The reviews "Glitter" received were devastating and the movie did very poorly in theaters, In most countries it wasn't even released. In the USA it premiered only in 1,196 theaters and was the 11th highest-grossing movie over the weekend with $5M. It was originally scheduled to open over Labor Day weekend, but the film was pushed back three weeks when Mariah checked into a hospital for emotional stress.

Mariah looks back at that period "as something that had to happen in my life. That time period was so blown out of proportion. That movie and that soundtrack - which had some really good songs that hopefully one day I'll get to redo - the fact it came out on September 11, people need to remember. How can we expect anything from that? I was a scapegoat in a lot of ways for talk show hosts who wanted to get away from the real stuff going on in the world. We all have to go through our tests to see how strong we are and come out on the other side."
