Famous and Tired

Pop stars complain about their jobs like everyone else. Here's what's happened when some of their gripes have actually made it to tape.

Mariah Carey, Glitter (2001): Her first product for Virgin was a single which had to be greatly reduced in price to get it into the Top 10, probably because the word Loverboy on a record spells "box office disaster." Speaking of which, previews for her dismal Glitter movie were greeted with laughter and boos (and that was nothing compared to the thud heard round the world when it actually opened in theaters). No wonder Carey went spare-y, posting audio messages on the Internet that she's working too hard and maybe shouldn't be making music anymore. So when the Glitter album was released on the most disastrous day in the history of the world, you almost hoped to hosanna it would at least have songs about how Tommy Mottola and J. Lo are out to ruin her. No dice, but at least fans are sensitive about her condition. One even renamed her Web site Mariah Breakdown and is getting more hits than Carey is.
