Glitter star Mariah Carey has reportedly backed out of her role in Tyler Perry’s latest movie, a take on the 1975 play “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf.” The cast currently features Whoopi Goldberg, Janet Jackson, Phylicia Rashad, and Macy Gray, among others. Carey’s decision is peculiar, seeing as this is a guaranteed cash cow, but her excuse may be that she’s too preggers to go on.

Carey, 41, has been married to 29-year old “actor” and “comedian” Nick Cannon for the past two years, and the couple have already denied a farce marriage she beats him that they are expecting their first child. However, Carey’s film and music schedule looks pretty slow over the next year, which is either a declaration of a bun in the oven or it’s a sign of hope that people in Hollywood may finally be seeing the light.

What’s that, NY Daily News? Damn.

The 41-year-old songstress has dropped out of her latest movie just days before filming was scheduled to begin, fueling rumors that the she is pregnant.

“She is not doing the movie because her doctor advised her not to,” her rep told UsMagazine.com Thursday. “More than that I cannot comment further.”

Although Carey and her husband, Nick Cannon, recently denied pregnancy rumors, Cannon hinted in early May that a baby is not out of the question somewhere down the line.

Ntozake Shange wrote the play 35 years ago and has written the screen adaptation as well. The story revolves around 20 black women who are all dealing with a variety of problems. I’d say their biggest problem is that black men keep playing their parts.
