Mariah Carey entered a hospital Wednesday night for treatment of "extreme exhaustion," according to her publicity firm.
In a terse press release, the PMK publicity firm suggested that the pace of filming two movies, "Glitter" and "Wise Girls," while completing the Glitter album, caused Carey to become exhausted.
"I'm trying to understand things in life right now and so I really don't feel that I should be doing music right now," Carey said earlier this week in a despondent voice message left on her official Web site, according to a fan-site transcript confirmed by Cindi Berger, Carey's spokesperson at PMK.
"What I'd like to do is just a take a little break or at least get one night of sleep without someone popping up about a video," Carey said. "All I really want is [to] just be me and that's what I should have done in the first place … I don't say this much but guess what, I don't take care of myself."
