This One Career Move Is Mariah Carey's Biggest Regret
Lifestyle - News
With her unique five-octave range and sky-high whistle tones, Mariah Carey is a once-in-a-generation performer, influencing stars like Ariana Grande, Beyonce, and Christina Aguilera. Despite her enormous success, Carey has admitted to making a few mistakes in her career.
Carey starred in the 2001 film "Glitter" as Billie Frank, a nightclub performer trying to break into the industry who is scouted as a backup vocalist. In 2013, Carey revealed that she regrets being in the film, blaming the lack of a script and leadership behind the camera.
"Glitter" came out at a difficult point in Carey’s life, particularly in terms of her public image. Carey was openly struggling with her mental health in 2001, and the fact that the “Glitter” soundtrack was released on September 11, 2001, didn’t help matters.
Carey remarked about the movie in 2013, "Now, I look at it again in retrospect, I'm like, 'You know what, I learned something, I'm grateful for that experience,' but it was a horrible couple of years.” Despite Carey's dislike for the film, the "Glitter" soundtrack holds a special place in her discography for many fans.
