Mariah Carey really wants to star in the new Mean Girls movie.
And she’s got a good chance of doing so now after the film’s writer Tina Fey offered her a part during a broadcast.
Carey and Fey recently came together for a virtual instalment of Billboard’s online series Quizzed, via Pop Crave, during which Fey testing Carey’s knowledge of Mean Girls.
Fey asked the singer: “Which song did the main characters sing at the school’s talent show?”
Carey correctly answered Jingle Bell Rock, only to reveal that she wished they’d used one of her festive tracks instead.
“We’re gonna make another movie of it, so if you want to license us that song for the movie and also be in the movie, just say nothing now and we’ll consider it legally binding. Just laugh and it’ll be legally binding,” joked Fey.
Carey jumped at the chance to be involved in Mean Girls, even if it is just a cameo.
“I’ll make a brand new Christmas song for them to use in the movie,” she said. “I definitely want to be in it as well. I don’t know, maybe I can be friends with Amy Poehler as, like, her other friend that wears sweatsuits.”
During the conversation, Carey also opened up about why she loves Mean Girls so much, revealing she related to the inner struggles of its leading characters.
“I didn’t fit in at all being mixed race and moving 13, 14 times, and having a black father and white mother and everybody was like, ‘Who is this weirdo?’ So I was mean because I was just trying to fit in and that was the only way I could fit in.”
