Mariah Carey is to follow in the footsteps of Nicki Minaj and create a TV series about her life before fame.
Full story below…
The star’s manager Stella Bulochnikov shared:
We have a secret project. We do have a scripted drama that we are developing that has not been announced about Mariah’s life that’s going to be incredibly poignant.
Stella broke the news as Carey seeks to silence the storm generated by her botched New Year’s Eve performance and the less than stellar ratings pulled in by her Reality TV series ‘Mariah’s World.’
It appears that work on the biopic is yet to begin but will see Carey join a long list of artists who are preparing to take their stories to the small screen.
Mariah’s fans will know that she has committed to delivering three more original movies to ‘Lifetime’ and that 2017 is expected to offer them fresh material from the ‘My All’ icon.
Alas, these fans also know that her era will be launched without the expertise of world class creative director Anthony Burrell who was fired from her camp this week.
A “source” close to Carey gave ‘Entertainment Tonight‘ the following information:
Burrell moved Carey’s backup singers off the stage for the live performance in Times Square, putting them at the base of the risers in order to make more room for the dancers.
The source further explained to ET that Burrell’s decision to move the backup dancers offstage “left Mariah without any support,” as backup singers can be a source of support and help an artist pick up cues if their inner earpieces don’t work and they can’t hear the music.
