World's Silliest Skank...
I've never understood anyone who enjoys Mariah Carey. Her music is just annoying, trapped-animal-sounding voice excercises with a crappy beat or sappy generic studio stings behind them, and let's just say her 'look' has always been a wee bit trashy.
But here's the Coup De Graah (sic); Apparently, her movie 'Glitter', which was one of the most unintentionally funny movies ever made ever (I don't count Showgirls, as i believe that was all on purpose), only failed because of, yup you guessed it, 9/11.
Glitter was ahead of its time – today it's 'in' to make 80's music. But the timing was bad - I released it around September 11 2001. The talk shows needed something to distract from 9/11. I became a punching bag. I was so successful that they tore me down because my album was at number 2 instead of number 1. The media was laughing at me and attacked me. - Mariah Carey
I would try to impart to Mariah how contemptably offensive a statement like that is, but I'm sure she's been called much worse and each time she hears someone try and tell her how mind-numbingly ignorant she is, her head probably cocks to the side like when you try and explain string theory to a dog.
