As told to Swiss newspaper SonntagsZeitung, via Mariah Daily…
With your movie Glitter you reached the low-point of your career. The Glitter album flopped. What went wrong?
MARIAH: 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.
And speaking of terrorism and terrible pop music, thanks to everyone for praying for Omarion’s safe return.
