The trailer for Mariah Carey's forth­com­ing E! doc­u­ment­ary — billed as "an 8-part event" — is now on the www and it's a suitably subdued affair.

Here's the trailer (there's a good bit where she jokes "I'm like anyone else"):

Here's a blurb we copied and pasted from under­neath the video about what the "docu-series" will focus on:

A new E! Entertainment docu-series revealed at Upfronts, “Mariah’s World,” takes viewers beyond the flash­bulbs and fame and into the private life of singer, song­writer and mega-producer Mariah Carey. It will give viewers VIP access to the song­stress like never before as she begins her “Sweet Sweet Fantasy” tour of the United Kingdom, Europe and Africa, all while planning her wedding to Australian business mogul, James Packer.

Not sure when it's on actually, but 'soon' probably.
