Mariah Carey Promotes ‘The Butler’ at Press Conference

Mariah Carey

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.

    yes how can a fat old white woman play a field slave-with her lack of talent and being completely miscast her part in that movie is a joke-just like when she does all that “i’m sooo glamorous” posing in clothes for a 20 year old -her legs look like fence posts and the black is not disguising her thunder thighs. Flopping out the sagging udders isn’t making her no neck linebacker shoulders look better either-and the fake horse hair extensions are no help -MeMe is so fake and such a drooling spotlight chasing fame hore-she just gets more desperate pathetic and gross the older she gets -from screwing a man 25 years older to get into poptard music to now-it was never anything but acting like gold digging trash with this huge attitude like she was all that-
