Backlash From Film Glitter Disturbed Mariah Carey Mentally

Mariah Carey decided to take a new turn and try her hand in acting when she chose to star in the 2001 feature film Glitter. However, the film got critically and commercially panned and the criticism affected Mariah mentally. She was traumatized by the word Glitter, and she couldn’t get over it for a long time. She said:

β€œThe Glitter era, it was an intense time. There are very few people who understand, like, being under the constant scrutiny of the world or the press. I couldn’t even say the word ‘glitter.’ It’d be, like, people around me, we had to say ‘sparkle’ instead of ‘glitter’!”

β€œBut I allowed myself to be put in a position for that to happen. I was working so hard and I wasn’t about to let everything I’d worked so hard for just to slip away. So, I worked myself into the ground. I was in a very dark place that ended up almost completely destroying my life.”
