    Default Mariah Carey blames 9/11 for Glitter failure

    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.”

    I blame Glitter for 9/11.

    If I was a terrorist that hated the US, Glitter would push me over the edge.

    GAG! If that movie had debuted on Christmas Day, the Jolly Old Elf himself would have thumbed his jolly old nose at it. Give me a break.

    Wow, Mariah, self-centered much? I would not even have considered making any comments like that regarding this movie. It was simply a bad movie that flopped. To blame one of the 21st century's greatest tragedies for a shitty movie reeks of self-absorption and a sense of entitlement. How dare all those people go off and fucking get murdered by those crackpots on the day your precious movie opened.

    They should have taken your needs into consideration first.

    Silly bitch.

    I'm sure the families of the 9/11 victims will appreciate Mariah blaming their deaths on her shitty movie failing.

    edit:

    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’.”
    A good director can't help if the star can't act.

    Terrible movie, insipid "star".
