Mariah Carey Promotes ‘The Butler’ at Press Conference

Before she releases her next album, Mariah Carey is set to return to the big screen in Lee Daniels’ The Butler. On Monday, the pop diva appeared at a press conference for the film in New York alongside her co-stars Oprah Winfrey, Cuba Gooding Jr., Terrence Howard, and Lenny Kravitz.

She plays Hattie Pearl, a field slave, in the historical drama, which opens in theaters on August 16. Mariah previously starred in Daniels’ Oscar-nominated film Precious: Based on the Novel “Push” by Sapphire.

The singer, who injured herself on set of the “#Beautiful (Remix)” video with Young Jeezy, wore a little black dress with a fashionable sling over her arm.

“#Beautiful,” her duet with Miguel, has been certified platinum in the U.S. after selling 1 million digital downloads. The song becomes Mariah’s 13th platinum or multi-platinum single.

She was recently in the studio with Wale and Jermaine Dupri working on a new track. “Mariah x Wale x JD = coming soon,” tweeted Wale.
