Mariah Carey Reflects on How Dreams of a ‘Show Business Life’ Were Realized

Mariah Carey Reflects on How Dreams of a ‘Show Business Life’ Were Realized
After five Grammy award wins, enough No.1 hit singles to create a whole album (the aptly titled “#1s” released in 1998, followed by the updated “#1 to Infinity” in 2015) and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, singer-songwriter-producer-actress Mariah Carey is about to get her feet wet.

On Nov. 1, she will stick them and her hands in cement at the Chinese Theatre forecourt, joining an exalted group of notables with her latest star turn.

Even with a long list of accolades behind her and a number of upcoming projects ahead of her, being immortalized alongside legends such as Marilyn Monroe, one of her own idols, is not an event Carey takes lightly. “I have this picture of Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell when they were doing their imprint ceremony. It’s an iconic photograph, and I have it hanging in my living room,” Carey says. “It’s something that feels humbling, and I feel honored by it.

New Ways to See Non-Fiction: How MoMA Doc Fortnight Brings a Fresh Perspective to Documentary Films

  • Indiewire
The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) kicks off its 16th annual Doc Fortnight on Thursday, a 10-day festival that includes 20 feature-length non-fiction films and 10 documentary shorts. This year’s lineup includes four world premieres and a number of North American and U.S. premieres.

The festival is far from the only major North American showcase for non-fiction cinema. Festivals ranging from Hot Docs to True/False have played key roles in the expanding documentary festival circuit. However, Doc Fortnight has maintained its own niche on the scene, by aiming to expose undiscovered stories and filmmakers, screening a range of documentaries from around the world and capturing the ways in which artists are pushing the boundaries of non-fiction filmmaking.

“It’s not an industry festival, there aren’t awards, and distributors aren’t all coming looking to buy,

Talk turns to Willie Nelson, with whom she recently recorded a duet, “Lay Me Down,” on her Full Circle album, out earlier this year.

Mariah Carey to Appear on 'Empire,' Co-Creator Lee Daniels Says
Another famous songstress is allegedly headed to Empire. Mariah Carey will guest star on the upcoming second season of the hip-hop drama, co-creator Lee Daniels revealed Wednesday at Carey's Walk of Fame ceremony. However, Fox declined to comment, and sources tell THR there is currently no deal in place for Carey to appear.

Another day, another Empire guest star announcement, and this is a good one.  Five-time Grammy winner Mariah Carey will be heading to the Fox music drama for season two, with the show's creator, Lee Daniels breaking the epic casting news at the ceremony for Carey's Hollywood Walk of Fame star on Wednesday.

Mariah Carey’s Movie Career Gets Big Boost from Lee Daniels

Mariah Carey’s Movie Career Gets Big Boost from Lee Daniels
Lee Daniels will not disclose any details about Mariah Carey’s role or character on the second season of Fox’s “Empire” — “I’m already in trouble with my publicist” is his quick excuse — but he believes she has definitely earned her place on the hip-hop insider drama as an actress. This is not a case of stunt casting.

“She has certainly proven herself, good lord. Repeatedly,” says Daniels, the co-creator, executive producer and writer of Fox’s biggest scripted hit of the 2014-15 season. “I’m very excited to see where she goes on ‘Empire.’”

It’s not a stretch to say Carey owes her current standing as an actress to Daniels, who ignored the crush of negativity that engulfed her 2001 film debut in “Glitter” and guided her to a starring role in a feature (“Tennessee”) followed by two well-received supporting roles (“Precious,” “Lee DanielsThe Butler”).

She’ll return to topline status,

‘Empire’ Dream Cast: 12 Actors We Want to Reunite with Lee Daniels on Season 2

‘Empire’ Dream Cast: 12 Actors We Want to Reunite with Lee Daniels on Season 2
When it comes to appearing on Empire, there seems to be one common thread: Lee Daniels. The director, who helped creator Fox’s hit new series with writer/actor Danny Strong, comes from a critically acclaimed film background. Both Terrence Howard (Lucious Lyon) and Gabourey Sidibe (Becky Williams) earned Oscar recognition thanks to Daniels work behind the camera.

Daniels has worked with an impressive pool of actors, which includes everyone from Dame Helen Mirren to SeanP. Diddy” Combs. While we’d never expect to see Mirren on the show -- though it would be delightful if she made a voice cameo like she did on Glee -- we do love the idea of Combs getting back into acting, Nicole Kidman returning to her camp days, or even Zac Efron revisiting the musical world that first made him a star.

16 Dead in Arkansas After Tornadoes Rip Through U.S.

Three years after a tornado devastated the Little Rock suburb of Vilonia, its residents found themselves huddling in the dark early Monday wondering how they would rebuild again after the most powerful tornado yet this year carved a path through their city and others nearby, killing at least 16 people. The tornado touched down Sunday about 10 miles west of Little Rock at around 7 p.m., then carved an 80-mile path of destruction as it passed through or near several suburbs north of the state capital, including Vilonia. It grew to be a half-mile wide and remained on the ground for much of that route,
