Every American likely remembers where they were as the tragic events of September 11, 2001 unfolded. Unfortunately for Mariah Carey, not many 9/11 memories begin, "I was just walking out of a matinee showing of Glitter when..." and the diva is not pleased.
For whatever reason, the would-be actress recently spoke out about the failure of her indulgent, semi-autobiographical film, doling out blame to the two parties most responsible: the director and terrorism. From ShowbizSpy (via Cele|Bitchy, thanks to Nick):
“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’.”
Pointless, untimely, and mildly offensive, all at once. Probably not the best quote, M.C.
On the plus side, good job giving the film a positive spin by pointing out it's not literally the worst thing ever done. Great save! But I would have stopped before adding, "Also, if 1941's The Wolf Man hadn't come out the same week as Pearl Harbor, that shit would have been Star Wars."
