Mariah Carey to Remake “The Sleeping Prince”

Mariah Carey appears to have a plan for that sad day when the pop charts no longer need her. A few years ago she scooped the rights to Marilyn Monroe’s classic movie The Prince And The Showgirl. She wants to turn it into a West End stage spectacular when time permits. The diva says, “I like the idea of doing it but it’s all down to the time – you have to commit for a rather long time and now is really hard for me. But it’s a dream that I want to achieve in the future.”

Carey purchased Monroe’s white piano at the 1999 Christie’s Auction “The Personal Property of Marilyn Monroe,” Lot 21. The piano is shown here in Carey’s New York City apartment.
