Mariah's 'Glitter' CD Put on Hold
With the release of her movie "Glitter" already pushed back from Aug. 31 to Sept. 21, Mariah Carey is now seeing that her new album -- also called "Glitter" -- is delayed, as well. The original debut date of Aug. 21 will be pushed back to Sept. 11, her label has announced. The CD, a soundtrack of the movie, is the pop diva's first release under her new $80 million contract with Virgin Records. Carey, 31, was released from a Connecticut hospital on Tuesday, after a two-week treatment for what her spokeswoman described as an "emotional and physical breakdown." Publicist Cindi Berger cited the singer's intense work schedule as the cause of the star's bizarre public behavior, including an impromptu strip while giving an interview to MTV. Carey is said to be under a doctor's supervision and resting under the watchful eye of her mother at an undisclosed location. "Mariah is looking forward to being able to participate in both her album and movie projects, and we are hopeful that this new soundtrack release date will allow her to do so," Virgin Music Group vice chairman Nancy Berry said in a statement. "She has been making great recovery progress, and continues to grow stronger every day. " The executive added that her company "continues to give its absolute commitment and support to Mariah on every level."
