Fragile singer MARIAH CAREY's acting debut in the movie GLITTER (2001) came in for such criticism that friends fear she may be on the verge of another breakdown. The singer was hospitalised in late July (01) for what her publicist called an emotional and physical breakdown.
Now critics have it in for her. JACK MATTHEWS, a critic with the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS, says, "Carey is astonishingly bad. " And USA TODAY's CLAUDIA PUIG railed, "Her acting doesn't come close to the potency of her pipes. " (RM/WNTSU/RP)
