Coming Soon: Mariah Carey, The Musical

By: Catherine Strawn / December 31, 2008

If you’re not getting enough of Mariah Carey in the tabloids and press these days, just wait a few months. Carey has been in discussions about creating “Glitter” the musical, as we’re calling the Broadway production about her life. A source told Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper that she’s not sure whether she’ll play herself yet, but the likes of Vanessa Hudgens and Eva Longoria-Parker are being considered. Who knew the “Desperate Housewife” could sing? Carey supposedly wants Leona Lewis to play her; she would be better able than most at tackling Carey’s eight-octave vocal range, after all. Plus, we already know she can play crazy from the UK video for “Bleeding Love.” [Daily Mirror UK]
