Mariah Carey on Broadway?

Mariah Carey is kind of like Michael Jackson in that she projects this curious media image of one who never wants to grow up. That, and they're both complected not unlike Mary Jane candies. (Exagerated cough suggesting feigned detachment)
But I digress. It's always about the butterflies and charm bracelets and bared-midriffs a la a 12 years old girl at camp. She even believes in Santa. Now, Mariah presents, in her self-described 7 octave range -- the joy of Christmas. (Averted Gaze) According to Ananova:
"Mariah Carey is planning to turn her 1994 Merry Christmas album into a Broadway musical.
"The 35-year-old singer is writing a story based around the songs plus two new songs she is planning to write, reports MTV.
"Carey said: 'I'm such a festive person, and I love Christmas. I'm so over the top with it that this is a bit much, but it's perfect for me.
"'I get a chance to live out my Christmastime fantasies vicariously through the show. I think it's going to be fun and something families can go to see.'"
There's something ... very ... scary about Mariah Carey sometimes. And not just when the glasses and dishes start going "airborne." Like she's walking some invisible line and at any moment the 7-octaves will spring forth, unasked for and unending, accompanied with flying shards of Christmas ornaments and oodles and oodles of "glitter." "Christmastime fantasies," indeed. (Exagerated cough suggesting feigned detachment)
