I always hate it when I hear about celebs leaving New York City and moving to L.A. For some reason, it makes me feel like New York is just a little less special without them. But in Mariah Carey’s case I’ll make an exception. Mariah is planning on hightailing it from Manhattan and moving to the west coast. Why? To work on her acting career, which has apparently become a priority in her life. This would normally be the spot where I’d make fun of “Glitter,” – which was easily the worst film of this decade. But she actually got great reviews for her work in “Tennessee” this past year, so her plans might not be totally ridiculous after all.
IS Mariah Carey giving up on New York? A music industry insider said, “She and [husband] Nick Cannon are looking for houses in Santa Monica. They want to move to Los Angeles permanently. She wants to act more and she has to be on the West Coast to do that. And well, then, he’s got his . . . career. Whatever that is.” Carey just got rave reviews for her role in the indie flick, “Tennessee.” Her rep declined to comment.

I love the little jibe at Nick Cannon. Who I’ve got to admit has the most confusing IMDB resume I’ve ever seen. For a guy that hasn’t done more than two movies I could name, he’s got the longest list of projects imaginable. None of which are memorable. But it does look like he works a lot, just not at anything that would make you say, “Oh, so he does such-and-such.”
Mariah might want to take a lesson from Nick and stick with the one thing she’s proven she’s good at, instead of fanning out too much. Wait, that implies Nick excelled at something. Well, nonetheless, I hope she’s not giving up on singing. Her music should still be her priority – she’s proven time and again that she’s got tons of talent, and she’s managed to stay on the top 40 charts for over fifteen years – without constantly reinventing herself like Madonna.
