Mariah Carey's latest attempt to emulate her heroine Marilyn Monroe has stalled - her stage debut in a role made famous by the screen goddess has been postponed.

Mariah, whose acting debut in flop film GLITTER earned her critical ridicule, is a huge fan of tragic Marilyn, and even owns the late star's white baby grand piano.

She'd been planning to make her live acting debut in a stage production of THE SLEEPING PRINCE - in the role Marilyn played in the film version THE PRINCE AND THE SHOWGIRL - but the production has now been delayed until further notice.
