Can you see Mariah Carey as V anessa Hudgens' mother?
Why not? She's 40 and Vanessa is 21. But that's not the point.
The point is whether Mariah wants to be seen as a 40-year-old mom in a new movie about a mother/daughter singing duo who audition for an "American Idol" kind of show.
It could be a little more than the Diva can handle.
