Mariah Carey started shopping her film idea to studios in 1997. She started writing songs for the soundtrack before it got a green light. Carey admits that when the project was approved in 2000, she found songs for the movie that she'd written and forgotten about. She was only supposed to do six songs, but many collaborations with producers, writers, and artists, including Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis, and Rick James, led to her writing the entire soundtrack. She also worked on a song with Prince, but they missed the deadline. See more »

so bad it goes past good and comes back to bad again
I rented Glitter because I'd read it was destined to become a 'so bad it's good' classic, but I was disappointed. This is no Showgirls. What makes Glitter a bad movie is that it's a bland, soulless procession of clichés, exactly like Mariah Carey's songs. And that just makes it boring-bad instead of spectacularly bad. And though Mariah is plenty vacuous in the starring role, she doesn't reach the heights of strenuously bad acting that Elizabeth Berkeley does in Showgirls. The only element of this movie that satisfies my so-bad-it's-good criteria is the character of Mariah's boyfriend. Here you have the whitest man on Earth, saying 'hip' things like "I'm a'ight" and "when you got no food in yo crib". If only the movie had contained more cringe-worthy gems like those!
