Carey: 'Glitter Was A Lighthearted Distraction From 9/11

Superstar MARIAH CAREY can see a positive side to the critical-mauling and poor sales of her GLITTER film and soundtrack album - it cheered up Americans following the September 11th (01) attacks.

The semi-autobiographical film was released only a month after the singer's much-publicised breakdown (AUG01) and ten days after the terrorists attacks in New York and Washington DC.

Carey tells the NEW YORK POST newspaper, "The problem was Glitter was about a diva moment. It was too close to my life.

"Another thing that people don't remember about Glitter is that it came out the week of 9/11. The movie became a pressure release for everyone dealing the intensity of the attacks. Glitter was the safe joke of the day."
