Mariah Carey is reportedly set to play a small role opposite Dakota Fanning in the upcoming film “Push,” reports WENN.
The entertainer says she’ll play a dowdy New York social worker in the sci-fi thriller, which follows a group of young American ex-pats with telekinetic and clairvoyant abilities who are hiding from a clandestine U.S. government agency. They must utilize their different talents and band together for a final job enabling them to escape the agency forever.
“I’m not going to be a pretty picture. The role’s a supporting part – a little scene – but it’s a very important scene,” Carey says of her role. “I don’t want to reveal what happens, but my character is important because things are revealed through her.”
Djimon Hounsou and Camilla Belle also star in the film, which is due in Feb. 2009.
In other Mariah news, London’s Daily Mail detailed every penny of the expenses needed to transport and house Carey for Monday’s World Music Awards in Monte Carlo.
The paper reported: The singer’s extraordinary demands included a £100,000 private jet transport to the ceremony in Monte Carlo and a £10,000-a-night penthouse suite at the exclusive Hotel de Paris for two nights. Never one to travel light, she also asked for similar VIP treatment at the hotel for her 15-strong entourage of stylists and personal assistants.
And when she felt a little peckish, she decided that the five-star hotel just wasn’t quite up to standard. Instead she had renowned Michelin-starred chef Alain Ducasse brought to her hotel to cook her a private dinner. Seemingly impressed with the results, she then asked if he could stay and teach her how to cook the clam linguine for her new husband Nick Cannon.
Never mind that the 38-year-old was appearing for only 15 minutes on the night. After collecting her Special Achievement award, she made a short speech before being escorted immediately home.
During her stay in London, Carey appeared on the TV competition show “X Factor,” where she sang her latest single “I Stay In Love” before joining the show’s finalists on stage to sing her hit “Hero.”
Similar to her appearance on “American Idol,” Carey’s “X Factor” face time included mentoring sessions and each contestant performing a Mariah ballad.
