  1. Loverboy (Remix) is maybe my favourite song ever.

  2. On this day in 2005, Mariah Carey became the first lead female artist to occupy the top 2 positions on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart - with ‘We Belong Together’ at #1 and ‘Shake It Off’ at #2.
  3. Legends only.
  4. Glitter really is one of her best albums and I will always stand by that fact.
  5. Happy anniversary to a masterpiece! I can't believe it's been 20 years since I got mad at my dad for not getting me the CD while I was at school cuz he was glued to the TV. I still remember how impressed I was seeing the interlude before Didn't Mean to Turn You On showing up as -00:10 on my CD player

  6. For someone who’s never watched the movie or listened to the album, which should come first?
  7. I'm a pretty major lamb, but I have one secret to share that I'm slightly ashamed of...
    I have never watched Glitter.

  8. It's never occurred to me that there are people who haven't seen Glitter? Everyone I've lent the DVD to through the years from my cousins to my high school photography teacher thought it was good
  9. I think movie first is a funner way to be introduced to the songs.

  10. For me, it was the soundtrack/album then the film. The songs on their own even without them part of the film project, makes for an essential listen. And then when you do see Glitter, only more so.

  11. Not them lying to you. The film isn’t good, but it’s still iconic (mostly for the wrong reasons). The original script had a lot of potential. They truly neutered it to the point it was a completely different project in the end.

    I’ve had dreams of that version becoming a mini series on HBO, but I also live for the camp-cult underdog status.

  12. Is there anywhere I can see the original script?
  13. This is sadly true. There is no case to be made that Glitter is some hidden underrated gem. It’s just not good at all. Not even laminated stan card lamb status can save this for me and I even love just looking at Mariah.
  14. I am guessing because of obviously the tragic date the album came out, she hasn't perhaps felt to say anything about the 20th anniversary.
  15. I’m not going to pretend it’s some masterpiece but it’s a cute watch honestly. The dialogue is not great but it’s not laughably bad.
  16. I imagine if anything is said/done it’ll be on the film’s release date (21st). I’m not holding much hope for the 20th anniversary celebrations it deserves (like… do an online screening + Q&A, a vinyl, etc!) but I’d love her to prove me wrong.

  17. Yes, guess we have to wait and see. Hopefully something!
  18. #Glitter20 is in effect! Hopefully there's a vinyl pre-order in the cards. But I especially want the videos remastered and the remixes uploaded.
