Nick Cannon had a thing for older women, way before he popped the question to Mariah Carey, who is 11 years older than her her hubby. Cannon revealed, “I was always a little attracted to women that were a little older than me. I even lost my virginity to an older lady… I actually ended up crying at the end of the whole ordeal.” Ummm sure, it’s emotional?
He went on to say, “She was in high school and I was in junior high…we were in a sleeping bag…I said we should change positions, she was like ‘just get off me!’” he added. “She ran into the bathroom with all of her friends and they were in there laughing…I vowed from that day forward no woman would ever laugh at me in the sack again and that’s when the ‘Cannon’ was born.” That’s called blowing your own…uhh…trumpet, Cannon.
About his wife, he had this to say, “We connected at a spiritual level… she is the funniest person ever and has a great sense of humor.” But M.C. is a diva so he’s learned to work around her quirks. Cannon said, “Imagine if you’ve got the diva of all divas… if we gotta be somewhere at five or six o’clock, I tell her it’s time to go at noon so she gets those five hours to do what she needs to do.”
On another note, pregnancy rumors have been flying around Nick and Mariah. The buzz peaked when she abruptly dropped out of Tyler Perry‘s new film. Filming was supposed to begin next month on the adaptation of Ntozake Shange‘s 1975 play For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf. Her rep stated, “She is not doing the movie because her doctor advised her not to. More than that I cannot comment further.” Sounds smokey, so there’s got to be a fire!
