Nobody can sing the way Mariah Carey does: Padma Lakshmi

London: India born model Padma Lakshmi, who starred alongside Mariah Carey in flop film ‘Glitter’, says she is a huge fan of pop superstar`s romantic musical drama.

Lakshmi, 42, made her movie debut in the much-maligned 2001 film but says it was a fun experience and even the bad reviews did not change her mind and turned her Carey`s admirer, reported a leading daily.

"Nobody can sing the way she does. Watching her close up is like swimming alongside (Olympian) Michael Phelps at the Olympics. Girl`s got some lungs," she said.
