Mariah Carey Without Make-up

Mariah Carey is known for being a Diva, and she's pretty much never seen without make up. Ever. I stumbled across this article that talks about a movie where she will be make up free. In the article there's a photo of her and a movie trailer, sans 5 pounds of foundation.

My first thought was that "Wow, she's really uh, ugly." But then I found out that

she's playing in a movie called "Precious" which is based on the novel "PUSH" by Sapphire.

The book is a powerful and heart wrenching novel that I read about 4 years ago when I was in 9th grade. I'm really glad that Mariah Carey was chosen for a role in the film, especially since she will be completely natural. It gives the movie that REAL feel that it needs to match the novel.

What do you think of Mariah Carey without make-up? Have you read the novel PUSH?
