And Now They're Novelists

Multitasking:

Mariah Carey has announced plans to write a series of children's books.

Following in the footsteps of fellow diva Madonna, Mariah will publish a series of illustrated children's tales following the life a bi-racial orphan girl. Entitled Automatic Princess, the stories will be based upon her own experiences growing up as part of a mixed-race family, website digitalspy.co.uk reports.

Mariah said: "The way I do things, I need to be involved. I wouldn't just be like, 'Here's a concept, go run with it.' "It's still something I really want to do, and I'm going to do, and I'm going to start getting that into production soon."

Meanwhile, pop and movie star J.Lo is also set to become a writer.

The 35-year-old beauty will pen a self-help book on how celebrities can deal with the US paparazzi. She's well qualified for the task. J.Lo's long-running affair with Hollywood hunk Ben Affleck gained her worldwide attention.

She said: "Nobody likes to hear somebody in the public eye, who they feel makes a lot of money, complain. So we don't, but it is a very strange thing. "Nobody writes books about how to deal with that, so I think I'll do that next."

--Why do stars think they are good at EVERYTHING? They should BOTH just stick to singing.

You Said

In Mariah's case, yes, maybe she should stick to singing.

In Jennifer's case....maybe writing is what she's best at. :) (I LOVE Jennifer Lopez. I feel I should mention that. Love her. Still....singing, not so good....)

She's right. We "little people" don't like to hear rich celebrities complain. Yes, the paparazzi is a handle for these people but how 'bout they try changing places with a cop, a soldier, a secretary, or other underpaid, overworked real person.

I don't think that either is all that particularly good at singing, either. The sad thing is that whatever ridiculous amount of money some publisher will hand over to these already overcompensated women could have sponsored at least ten other writers who are actually talented, and said money would probably make a real difference in their lives. Bah.

Lawren, where do you get your great pics?

I'm not a big fan of J.Lo and think there is lots of more beautiful starlets, but she looks mighty nice in this one.

One thing about J.Lo.... She knows what makes her look good.
