A representative for Mariah Carey has shot down reports the star is in talks to turn her life into a new stage musical. The singer/actress was said to be eyeing British star Leona Lewis to play her in the project.
An insider revealed, "Not only is she exotic, she's the only one who they reckon would be able to tackle Mariah's eight-octave vocal range." But Carey's spokesperson is adamant the report is just speculation, telling GossipCop the rumor is not true.
Mariah Carey's musical rumors first sparked after her spokesperson claimed, "Mariah is in talks for a Broadway musical to be made about her life in 2009." The statement then led into numerous published reports.
