Mariah Carey Plans Comeback

She's the top-selling female artist of all time, but Mariah Carey's been missing in action lately. This week, though, Mariah made her first public sighting in some time, facing the world this week at a benefit for her charity, Operation Smile. And now, only "Extra" can reveal the three ways the superstar is planning to get back to the top.

First of all, Mariah has now put her career in the hands of Bennie Modina, the man who's launched dozens of stars, including Jennifer Lopez, and is now working with Ricky Martin. Modina has brought in some huge names to work with Carey on her new album, like R. Kelly and rap superstar Kayne West. The first single from the album is due out in the fall.

Mariah has just finished a 60-city tour, but along the way, she spent a lot of quiet time reflecting. "Extra" has learned she is now meditating, and wrote a lot of her new album on the beautiful island of Anguilla.

The third part of Carey's comeback bid involves her acting career. In 1957, Marilyn Monroe starred in "The Prince and the Showgirl," and now we've learned that Carey will be starring in a stage version of the movie in London.

She's also taking meetings with the networks to discuss a primetime gig. And we've learned she wants to get back into movies, preferably independent films.

It's clear that Mariah Carey is back on her game and ready to take the world by storm -- again.
