Pop singer Mariah Carey was left waiting for a screening of her new movie Precious at the ongoing 62nd Cannes Film Festival in France after acclaimed filmmaker Martin Scorsese overran with a presentation of his forthcoming film.
Carey was Friday on the red carpet at the annual event to promote her upcoming drama, in which she has a small role as a social worker, reports contactmusic.com.
But a planned screening of the movie that evening was pushed back when Scorsese took longer than expected to introduce his new picture The Red Shoes.
Carey waited patiently for the film's promotional slot and took to the stage alongside her fellow stars Lenny Kravitz, Paula Patton, Gabby Sidbe, and director Lee Daniels to introduce the movie.
"Je suis fatiguee, (I'm very tired.) I've had too much champagne, so I'm not able to give the speech I spent three weeks preparing. I say this movie was made with love, bubble gum, popsicle sticks, everyone on this stage, and grace," Daniels said while addressing the crowd.
