Mariah Carey ditches glamour for new role
R&B superstar Mariah Carey is set to ditch her glamourous image by playing a dowdy social worker in a new movie.
The ‘Touch My Body’ songstress is hoping her new movies will fare better than her 2001 film ‘Glitter’, which flopped at the box office.
In movie ‘Push’, released in early 2009, Mariah will appear alongside Dakota Fanning.
“I’m not going to be a pretty picture. The role’s a supporting part – a little scene – but it’s a very important scene. I don’t want to reveal what happens, but my character is important because things are revealed through her,” Mariah says of her role.
Mariah’s also starring in the forthcoming ‘Tennessee’ movie and working on a project based on her Christmas album.
