Mariah Carey Gives It Another Go

Mariah Carey, dressed down in a simple white button-down shirt and jeans, made an appearance at the Tribeca Performing Arts Center at the Borough of Manhattan Community College for the premiere of her new indie film Tennessee, which debuted at the 7th Annual Tribeca Film Festival in NYC last night ... here are a few pics:

It's rare that Mimi dresses down for a red carpet event but it's really very appropriate for this particular event. Tennessee is Mariah's return to the big screen after her disastrous 2001 movie Glitter ... but unlike the mess that Glitter turned out to be, Tennessee is a small indie film that might actually bring the hope that Mariah might actually win accolades (rather than jeers) this time around. Mimi plays a waitress in the film about two men on a journey to find their estranged father, in a bid to save their younger brother from leukemia. It remains to be seen what kind of performance Mariah has in store for us in this movie but ANYTHING has to be better than what we got back in 2001. The stars seem aligned for Mariah Carey these days ... I wouldn't be surprised if this tiny movie role ends up garnering much more success for Miss Mimi. [Source]
