Those won’t be Mariah Carey’s pipes that you hear warbling the theme song, “Where Are You, Christmas?” in this holiday season’s “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” starring Jim Carrey. PEOPLE reports that the diva was all set to do the singing, but it just didn’t happen, even though Carey cowrote the song. Mariah’s rep told PEOPLE that Carey didn’t have the time to record, but, reports the magazine, the songbird’s ex-hubby, Sony Music chief Tommy Mottola, wouldn’t let her sing for rival MCA/Universal, which is releasing the picture (based on the Dr. Seuss classic). Faith Hill has since recorded the song for the soundtrack.
