Mariah Carey Lands Scripted Drama Series Based on Her Life

Mariah Carey Lands Scripted Drama Series Based on Her Life
Mariah Carey's rise to fame is getting the TV treatment.

Starz network confirms to Et that an untitled fictional scripted drama series is in the works that will be based on Carey's real-life experiences. The 47-year-old pop star is executive producing the series along with her friend, Brett Ratner, as Deadline was first to report.

Exclusive: Mariah Carey Stuns in Sexy Cutout Lbd, Says She and Ex Nick Cannon Are ‘Together When it Counts’

Nina Colman will pen the script, which will take place in 1986 New York City and will follow the rise of a bi-racial 16-year-old girl's aspiring singer-songwriter.

News of the scripted series comes after Carey starred in her own reality series, Mariah's World, earlier this year. She also starred in the 2001 movie, Glitter, which -- like the upcoming drama show -- was about a young singer ascending to super stardom.

Mariah Carey's Diva Behavior Got Her Booted from Will Ferrell's The House

Mariah Carey's Diva Behavior Got Her Booted from Will Ferrell's The House
Mariah Carey was supposed to make a cameo as herself in Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler's new comedy The House, but apparently the pop star took the role a little too literally and was too much like her diva self. The movie revolves around two parents portrayed by Ferrell and Poehler who start an underground casino in their basement to try and raise money to pay for their daughter's college tuition. Things turned ugly when Mariah Carey showed up on set.

Will Ferrell was recently on The Late Show With Seth Myers to promote The House and he discussed Mariah Carey's involvement (or lack thereof ) with the movie. Will Ferrell alludes to certain demands by the pop star that apparently were not met either on or off set. Ferrell had this to say.

"There were suggestions that weren't executed. She was on our set and, um, things happened.

Watch John Oliver Slam Gop for Passing Health Care Bill They Didn't Read

Watch John Oliver Slam Gop for Passing Health Care Bill They Didn't Read
During Sunday's Last Week Tonight, John Oliver slammed Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives for endorsing a bill to "repeal and replace" Obamacare without even reading it. The host singled out New York Representative Chris Collins who, seemingly confused by one aspect of the bill in a Buffalo News interview, asked the reporter to "explain" it to him. "I can explain it to you right now," Oliver snapped. "You fucked up."

Oliver also blasted South Carolina Rep. Mark Sanford, who when asked by CNN if he read the

Mariah Carey Wears Tight, Lace-Up Little White Dress and $2,125 Heels on Night Out

Mariah Carey Wears Tight, Lace-Up Little White Dress and $2,125 Heels on Night Out
Mariah Carey came of age as a singer in the heyday of prima donnas. So it probably goes without saying that her life and career have been modeled after some of the greatest performers of all time, such as Diana Ross, Aretha Franklin, and Whitney Houston. For example, if you thought the Glitter star‘s “I don’t know her” response to a question about Jennifer Lopez was the most brutal shade thrown of the century, it truly pales in comparison to Aretha just last week dredging up a five-year-old feud with Dionne Warwick via “a lengthy fax.” Given that

Trailer: Glow

Guts. Glitter. Glory. Glow.

Glow tells the fictional story of Ruth Wilder (Brie), an out-of-work, struggling actress in 1980s Los Angeles who finds one last chance for stardom when she’s thrust into the glitter and spandex world of women’s wrestling. In addition to working with 12 Hollywood misfits, Ruth also has to compete with Debbie Eagan (Betty Gilpin) a former soap actress who left the business to have a baby, only to be sucked back into work when her picture perfect life is not what it seems. And at the wheel is Sam Sylvia (Marc Maron), a washed-up, B-movie director who now must lead this group of women on the journey to wrestling stardom.

Glow launches on Netflix on Friday 23 June 2017.

Mariah Carey Makes Her Live Performance Comeback on Jimmy Kimmel After Disastrous Nye Gig

Mariah Carey Makes Her Live Performance Comeback on Jimmy Kimmel After Disastrous Nye Gig
She’s back, dahlings!

Mariah Carey made her big live performance return Wednesday night on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to perform her latest ballad, “I Don’t,” which was inspired by her high-profile split from Australian billionaire James Packer.

Donning a curve-hugging and plunging red gown, Mimi belted out the lyrics with the help of rapper Yg and a live band, and it appeared to go off without a hitch.

In the revealing song, the diva tells her ex, “Probably think I’m coming back, but I don’t, I don’t.” In the accompanying music video, Carey, 46, sets her would-be wedding dress on fire.

The singer was spotted cozying up to her rumored backup dancer beau after a night on the town in London on Saturday. The 33-year-old has been by Carey’s side since they were first spotted kissing in Hawaii in November.

Mariah Carey Steps Out with Bryan Tanaka in Wake of New Year’s Eve Controversy

Mariah Carey Steps Out with Bryan Tanaka in Wake of New Year’s Eve Controversy
She may be on a break from “media moments” in the wake of her controversial New Year’s Eve performance, but that didn’t stop Mariah Carey from turning up the glamour when she stepped out at Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills on Monday night.

The “Heartbreaker” singer rocked a floor-length black gown with peek-a-boo cleavage cutouts — and a leather biker jacket draped on her shoulders. Her hair pulled in a side ponytail, she accessorized the look with platform high-heels, diamond jewels, and oversized sunglasses.

Later, she slipped into something far more comfortable — jeans, a white top and matching

The Most Mariah Carey Diva Fashion Moments from the Mariah’s World Premiere
Mariah Carey has officially achieved a level of diva previously unknown to mankind. If her years of hitting high notes only dogs can hear, riding the NYC subway in an evening gown, yachting around Italy listening to her own greatest hits and reciting off-the-cuff one-liners about certain pop stars she may or may not be familiar with wasn’t confirmation enough of her living legends status, we now have definitive proof that she continues to be the most meme-able musician of the decade thanks to her new eight-part reality docuseries Mariah’s World.

As more details continue to come out about Mariah Carey and James Packer‘s split, the whole ordeal only seems to become more uncertain. While the break up has turned into a serious case of he-said, she-said, there’s one thing that the pop star has made crystal clear — she’s keeping the ring. But as the diva continues to go out in Hollywood with that 35-carat rock still firmly attached to her finger, one big question remains: Legally, does she have to give it back?

Here's looking at me: Does Angelina Jolie’s By the Sea qualify for Hollywood’s Hall of Vain?

Once, big film stars fought to turn their personal obsessions in to earnest, uncommercial movies that made them look good and bored everyone else. Now they’re less set on playing the world-changing hero. What’s with the sudden modesty?

It used to be easy to spot a vanity project. If Steven Seagal is playing a heroic spirit-warrior who slaughters a rigful of oil workers to defend Inuit tribes, that’s a vanity project (1994’s On Deadly Ground, if you were wondering). If Mariah Carey is playing a hard-knock orphan whose vocal talents turn her into a superstar … Yep: vanity project (Glitter). If Madonna is … well, if Madonna is in it at all, it’s probably a vanity project.

But things aren’t so clear-cut these days. Take Angelina Jolie’s new movie, By the Sea. She wrote, directed, produced and stars in it, opposite her husband Brad Pitt. And

Mariah Carey's Hallmark Christmas movie looks unforgivable

Mariah Carey's Hallmark Christmas movie looks unforgivable
Mariah Carey, the pop superstar and all-around perfect celebrity, has directed a Hallmark Channel movie. Better yet, it is a Christmas movie. Best yet, it is a movie with Lacey Chabert, best known for her role as Gretchen Weiners in "Mean Girls." This does not look like a great movie. In this clip, watch as Mariah intimidates Lacey using stilted sass and Joan Crawford-type lighting. Wow. Well. Here's everything we got from that: 1) According to this movie, Mariah and Lacey went to high school together. Ok. 2) I don't understand how Mariah can be this robotic. We saw "Precious," right? She was great in that! Here she's giving you "Glitter" outtakes, but there's no camp value to soften the blow.  3) I'd like to ask Director Carey what planet her lighting comes from. She looks like she's reporting live from a 2001 Jessica Simpson video. Lacey Chabert appears to be standing exactly three galaxies away from Mariah,

[Updated] Mariah Carey Reportedly Cast As Commissioner Gordon In The Lego Batman Movie

Update: Contrary to previous reports, singer-songstress Mariah Carey will join The Lego Batman Movie as Gotham’s mayor, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Original story: In what has to be one of the most interesting pieces of casting news this reporter has seen in recent memory, singer/actress Mariah Carey (Glitter) is reportedly in talks to voice Commissioner Jim Gordon in The Lego Batman Movie. Now that you have checked your calendar to make sure today is not April 1st, you can come to the realization that she is now in the company of actors such as Pat Hingle, Gary Oldman, and Ben McKenzie, all of which have inhabited the role of one of Batman’s most trusted allies and confidants.

First appearing in the very first Batman story ever published, “The Case of the Chemical Syndicate” in Detective Comics #27 (1939), Commissioner Jim Gordon has since been an important part of

Updated: Mariah Carey to Play Gotham City Mayor in The Lego Batman Movie

Update: Borys Kit from The Hollywood Reporter says Carey will actually be playing the mayor of Gotham City, not Commissioner Gordon as Deadline originally reported. Bummer. That makes things considerably less interesting. Oh well. Original article follows.

This just in: Mariah Carey is Not playing Commissioner Gordon but rather Gotham's mayor.

— Borys Kit (@Borys_Kit) November 9, 2015

If that headline [formerly "Mariah Carey to Play Commissioner Gordon in The Lego Batman Movie...Wait, What?"] has you scratching your head, you aren't the only one. Deadline reports that Warner Bros. is in talks with Mariah Carey to provide the voice for Commissioner Gordon in The Lego Batman Movie. No word on whether she'll sing in the film or not, but it seems unlikely that they'd cast her just for her speaking voice alone; this could be one of the most interesting interpretations of a Batman character in history.

Carey has acted before, notably in Precious: Based on the Novel "Push" by Sapphire, Lee Daniels' The Butler,

Warner Bros. Adds Glitter To ‘The Lego Batman Movie,’ Mariah Carey Cast As Commissioner Gordon

Warner Bros. Adds Glitter To ‘The Lego Batman Movie,’ Mariah Carey Cast As Commissioner Gordon
So far, the casting for Warner Bros.' "The Lego Batman Movie" has been either inspired or inventive. The ensemble at the moment is led by Will Arnett as Batman, with Ralph Fiennes (Alfred the Butler), Michael Cera (Robin), Rosario Dawson (Batgirl) and Zach Galifianakis (The Joker) joining the voice roles, and each one is a pretty bang on selection. But frankly, I have no idea what to make of this latest addition. Deadline reports that Mariah Carey will play Commissioner Gordon in the movie. The superstar singer famously flopped with the musical big screen vehicle "Glitter," but has since proven she's got chops, particularly with her gritty turn in Lee Daniels' "Precious." All that said, I can only imagine it's going to be a seriously reinvented Gordon in this movie. "The Lego Batman Movie" drops on February 10, 2017 but if you need a Batman fix sooner, the animated "Batman

Best of Late Night TV: Celebrity Mean Tweets and Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Barbershop Quartet

  • Moviefone
If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Mean Tweets Week is over on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," and these are the best of the best from stars like Jeff Bridges, Kristen Bell, Benedict Cumberbatch and Emily Blunt. Our favorite of the batch? "Kristen Bell seems like such a bitch, her vagina is probably an Alcatraz for penis." Yikes.

Chances are you already saw the video of Anne Hathaway nerding out over Mariah Carey. Well, Seth Meyers made her act out what would happen had she actually met Saint Mimi, and it was a hot mess. Not like "Glitter" hot mess, but close.

Finally, the best part of last night on late night? The Rag Time Gals are back!
