Tina Fey Wants to Make a Mean Girls Musical, and Maybe Cast Mariah Carey as Regina's Mom (!!!)

I know, right?

Lindsay, there's finally a reason for you to sober up! Tina Fey told E! on the SAG red carpet that she hopes there will be a Mean Girls musical. YOU BETTER NOT BE YANKING OUR CHAIN, FEY!


When asked about said the possibility of said musical, Fey answered: "Maybe! We want to. I would love to," "I'm trying to develop it with my husband, who does all the music for 30 Rock and I think Paramount's onboard."

So fetch.

Also fetch, Fey is impressed with Mariah Carey, and not just because she's Mariah Carey:

...Tina already has one musician in mind to take on one of the now-iconic parts: Mariah Carey.
"I loved it!" Tina gushed when asked about the recent American Idol fight between Mariah and fellow judge Nicki Minaj over Mean Girls. "And I think Mariah won. Like, Mariah seemed to really know all the characters."

During the spat, Ms. Carey was adament that she was no Regina George and Tina agrees: "Maybe she can play Amy Poehler's part in the musical."


YES YES YES, a million times YES! I want to see Mariah Carey sporting a velour Juicy Couture tracksuit and misaligned nipples sipping "virgin" margaritas and singing about being a cool mom.


If you can hear me, please please please make this happen. I promise to never write anything mean about you ever again. Also, I love your skirt, where did you get it?

Laura and Everyone Else

It's a comedy gold idea, but lets get serious - Diva "Queen Bee" Mariah Carey would not be likely to make it through a gruelling broadway schedule. We'd be subjected to story after story of how she broke down in tears, threatened to quit, and finally her big exit. I mean I guess people would love all that but she'd never actually make it long on the Great White Way.
