Mariah Carey blames 9/11 for Glitter failure

Monday 1 June 2009

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."
