Mariah Returning To Big Screen

Mariah Carey shocked and nauseated the world with Glitter, the singer’s simply atrocious 2001 big screen flop.

While one would think the 38-year would be inclined to stay away from the movie business, Ms. Carey’s picked herself up and thrown herself back into acting. And apparently she doesn’t suck:

The Grammy winner put away her lip gloss to play the battered wife of a state trooper in “Tennessee,” which won raves at the Tribeca Film Festival. Director Lee Daniels was so impressed with her grit that he’s cast her in “Push,” in which she plays a Harlem social worker ministering to an obese, HIV-positive woman impregnated twice by her father.

Carey’s also reportedly working on a musical set to her Christmas album. The story will revolve around an evil developer looking to build a mall in a small town. Sounds perfect.
