Okay Mariah, Enough About Dressing Down to be a Social Worker

Jeers to for running yet another article on glam pop star Mariah Carey’s transformation into social worker Mrs. Weiss for the film “Precious.”

Carey said now when she walks around the house dressed “normally” she doesn’t feel bad about her looks because she knows she looked worse playing a social worker. Carey said she did her scenes in “Precious” under unforgiving fluorescent lights in a dental office.

Which led’s Rohin Guha to write:

“Uncertain is the subtle dig at social workers everywhere subject to such harsh lights, lacking luxuries like L’Oreal under-eye creams.”

Okay, let’s drop the stereotype about style-challenged social workers. Social workers can be some of the best-dressed people you know.
