Insult of the day

Mariah Carey says her flop movie 'Glitter' helped Americans recover from the tragedy of September 11th. The pop diva claims her widely-panned film drew in audiences desperate for light relief from the horror of the terrorist attacks. If that is the case, would the movie not have grossed more than a paltry 4.2 Million?

Carey is quoted by the New York Post as saying: "People forget 'Glitter' came out the week of 9/11.”The movie became a pressure release for everyone dealing with the intensity of the attacks. 'Glitter' was the safe joke of the day."

She goes on to say that the semi-autobiographical story shared too many similarities with her own life for her to enjoy it properly. She added: "The problem was 'Glitter' was about a diva moment. It was too close to my life." No the problem with Glitter was it attempted to be a movie.

Carey's comments are just another example of how out of touch movie stars and musicians are with society. The real people who helped America heal were the New York Police Department, the New York Fire Department and the thousands of volunteers who cleaned up the mess in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania.

I think MAriah Carey fans would disagree with you...
