Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Is Nick Cannon Ready to Date?

When it comes down to his split with his wife, Mariah Carey, Nick Cannon is really mostly worried about his children, Moroccan and Monroe.

At the same time, though, he knows they’re too young to understand that their parents are going through a divorce.

“They just love mommy and daddy so there is nothing different for them,” he told Wonderwall.com.

The “America’s Got Talent” host said he’s simply focusing on work, rather than his divorce, but he’s aware that his personal stock is high right now.

“There are a lot of people after me right now. I gotta slow it down,” he said while deejaying a party at Las Vegas” 1 OAK. “I’m trying to slow it down and stay focused. Family is the first thing and my kids, obviously the dating thing will come down the line.”
And though he’s on the market again, he really hasn’t thought about dating. Right now, he’s all about family and career.

“I think I’m busier than I’ve ever been in my life,” he said. “I love it. You gotta keep cooking while the fire is hot.”

Turning 34 never looked as good as it did last night when superstar actor, DJ, comedian, rapper, record producer and entrepreneur Nick Cannon celebrated his birthday with a special DJ set at Drai’s Nightclub – Las Vegas’ top new nightlife destination located on the rooftop of The Cromwell, the first stand-alone boutique hotel on the Strip.

Cannon arrived at Drai’s with friends, looking stylish in an all black ensemble complete with an edgy detailed leather jacket and a set of heavy chains around his neck. He was in high spirits as he posed for photos and interacted with the crowd of fans who were ready to celebrate the multi-talented star’s birthday.

Inside Drai’s, the group sat at one of the venue’s most exclusive tables located on stage next to the DJ booth. As word of Cannon’s arrival began to buzz throughout the club, it was clear that Drai’s wasn’t emptying out any time soon. When he took to the turntable, the crowd erupted in applause and everyone soon found themselves under command of Cannon’s masterful musicality for the rest of the night. He spun a mixture of new and old hip hop, continually increasing the crowd’s momentum with the start of each new track. At one point, Cannon got so caught up in the music that jumped on top of the DJ booth to show off his dance moves and the entire club cheered him on.

All eyes were on Cannon as a magnificent three-tiered birthday cake made its way through the club and into the DJ booth. Surprised by the monstrous dessert, he took a few moments to appreciate the gesture before getting back to his set. For the remainder of the evening, Cannon was a constant source of energy for everyone who came to party with him 11 stories above the Strip.

At the end of his set, Cannon began to thank everyone for coming out to celebrate when the entire club started to cheer as a show of their own appreciation for the entertainment luminary. He assembled his group for a round of drinks at their VIP table before calling it a wrap and heading to his Parlour Suite at The Cromwell to end what was indisputably an “only in Vegas” kind of night.

Nick Cannon Opens Up About Separation from Mariah Carey

Via Extra TV:

Nick Cannon attended the New York City premiere of “Addicted.” Nick talking only to “Extra’s” AJ Calloway, opening up about his separation from Mariah Carey, telling AJ, “I’m just taking everything one day at a time and just being the best person that I can possibly be at the end of the day.”

Nick recently photographed without his shirt on revealing new body art covering up his “Mariah” tattoo saying, “It’s not finished yet… It wasn’t supposed to be revealed yet… I didn’t know they were there, that’s how sneaky paparazzi are… I had just gotten it done, it was painful… It hurt a lot and I’m still not finished, I’m still probably like six more sessions away.”

Nick also said his twins, Monroe and Moroccan, are doing amazing and are currently on the road overseas with mom.

As for the recent headlines that Mariah had vocal issues at her concert in Japan, Nick defended her, saying, “I just wish her nothing but the best, we’re in contact constantly, you know you might have an off night here and there, but she’s one of the greatest performers and entertainers of all time, she’s not worried, we’re not worried, just going to keep pushing.”

At least it sounds as if they are trying to keep things civil?

Kim Kardashian: Reason For Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey’s Split?

Well, things are not looking good for Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey’s six year marriage. On Thursday Cannon did confirm that he and MC were separated and “living in separate for a few months”.

Even though we aren’t hearing a definite reason for the split, Nick is saying that his “main focus is his kids”.

And that is great and all, but is Kim Kardashian the reason for their ultimate split or were those cheating rumors on his part true?

All I can say is I knew damn well that things were going to get awfully messy at home after this interview:

Yes, he mentioned that he did the deed with Kim Kardashian.

After that interview went down, you know things back at the ranch were bad and Nick even admitted he made a mistake opening his big mouth. He told Australia’s 2DayFM, “I thought I was being coy and cunning by naming someone or people that I actually was in a relationship with. The world knew these, these weren’t like names that, you know, I pulled out of a hat – these are people you’ve seen me on red carpets with, engaged, in love and all of that stuff, so wasn’t like it was new information. You know sometimes, as my wife says, sometimes I should just keep my big mouth shut.”

Even though I do not think Kim Kardashian was the ultimate reason for Nick and Mariah’s split, I do think Nick’s mouth got him in a lot of trouble on more than one occasion.

Not all the jewelry in the world could fix his public spewing of the mouth.

So what do you think? Is this a permanent split for these two?

Nick Cannon: Playing Richard Pryor In Upcoming Biopic?

Via Extra TV:

Nick Cannon joined “Extra’s” Mario Lopez at Universal Studios Hollywood, where the “America’s Got Talent” host commented on headlines that say he’s going to play comedian Richard Pryor in an upcoming biopic.

Cannon explained it’s just rumors for now. “There’s a phenomenal director, Lee Daniels, who did everything from ‘The Butler,’ to ‘Precious.’ He’s assigned to the project, and he’s supposed to direct… He’s a personal friend of mine, and I’ve had the opportunity to kind of read with him, talk about it, but in my mind I’m trying to be the best man for the role. There’s several other people who’d love to play this role, and I’m just saying may the best man get it.”

Nick added he has begun to look the part. “I started growing my hair and doing the look and everything. Crazy, because the rumors started right away… ultimately man, it’s a dream project, who wouldn’t want to be part of that legendary story, that legendary comic? He changed the face of comedy, so I’d love the opportunity.”

For now, Cannon is concentrating on “America’s Got Talent.” “Season 9… it’s the best season we’ve had so far. The judges are just jelling. I think it’s the best judging panel on television, then after that, man, like, the talent shot up to the next level.”

The TV personality is also working on a children’s book based on his 3-year-old twins with wife Mariah Carey. “I really don’t want my kids to be in entertainment, but I understand how people have fallen in love with their characters, who they are, so I was like, I’ll just design children’s books with their characters in mind. They’re like the new Raggedy Ann and Andy, and it’s called ‘The Adventures of Roc and Roe.’”

Nick Cannon Says Wife Mariah Carey Doesn’t Know Who Kim Kardashian Is

Nick-Cannon

Nick Cannon is still being open with his private life that I am sure Mariah Carey isn’t thrilled to hear about. He recently blabbed about his sexual conquests here and then caused quite the controversy with his “white face” banter (here). But this time with Howard Stern, Cannon got even more revealing, discussing his intimate life with the legendary MC.

“She doesn’t care when I talk about our sex life because our sex life is amazing,” he admitted. But one thing she doesn’t like is him talking about his past lovers like he did just last week.

The good news is that “She doesn’t even know who Kim Kardashian is…,” he said, adding, “She doesn’t pay attention to that.”

And oh how I would LOVE to live in Mariah Carey’s world…NOT know who Kim Kardashian is?! YES, please!!!

In the video Nick explained, “People feel like they can ask me anything, because I say anything. I’m brutally honest, and now my wife doesn’t like when I come on your show! She doesn’t care when I talk about our sex life, because our sex life is amazing. She’s one of the most beautiful women in the world. But…when we bring up — I’m not gonna do it — other people’s names, she’s like, ‘Why would you even do that?'”

Um, hello?! Do you blame her? Especially for bringing Kim K into the whole dang thing…even though she doesn’t know who she is. *blink blink* Straight up SHADE!

Nick Cannon Promotes Album “White People Party Music” With “White Face”

nick-cannon

It took awhile for me to accept Nick Cannon. As a hardcore Mariah Carey fan, it was really hard for me to believe that their marriage was going to last. Granted they are still together, but now I am wondering if his latest “white face” antic is going to throw a dagger into their union and his public persona. In an effort to promote his upcoming album, White People Party Music, Cannon decided to post a photo of himself disguised with body makeup, a wig and a surfer guy accent to play a character he calls “Connor Smallnut”. It’s clear with this particular persona, he’s mocking a white man. So, am I offended by this? Well, I’ll tell you one thing right now…I definitely have an icky feeling about the whole thing.

And he continued to play this role on his Twitter…when asked how it “feels to be white”, he replied, “Great, I’m no longer afraid of the Police!! LOL.”

Not everyone thought Cannon’s “white face” stunt was cute. Vanity Fair tweeted that he is making the world “cringe” by acting like this. His reponse? “Not really the World, just you guys! LOL.”

He went on to add, “Don’t get your fancy panties in a bunch! It’s funny how people take themselves so seriously. People love drama! We feed off of it. Just relax and have fun!!”

Hmmm, but is it just all in good fun? Are our panties way too tight?

So what do you think? Is this offensive or funny? Sound off in the comments section below.

Can I be 3 years old and adopted by Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon like right now? AHHH! I can’t even imagine what it must be like to have the legendary MC sing you to sleep every night and have Nick cracking jokes and making goofy faces at you all damn day.

According to our friends at Bohomoth, the couple partied it up for this holiday wearing green and hanging out with their little sweeties and they seem to be genuinely having fun!

Go here to see more photos of the fun family as they celebrate St. Patrick’s Day 2013.

Nick Cannon Explains Why He Dumped Kim Kardashian

Before the plastic and the annoying reality show and 10394958 business deals, Kim Kardashian attempted Nick Cannon. But as we all know, things didn’t work out.

The question is…why? Why oh why would Nick Cannon drop Kimmy K like a bad habit?

Well now he speaks.

“This was my issue,” said Cannon. “We talked about this tape…And she told me there was no tape. If she might have been honest with me I might have tried to hold her down and be like ‘That was before me’ because she is a great girl. She’s actually one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. But the fact that she lied and told me that there was no tape?…And I still think she might have even had a part to play with it.”

Even though he probably HAS seen the sex tape but will never know admit it, he will admit one thing about his ex.

“I think she’s a great businesswoman if you ask me,” said Cannon.

Nick Cannon was spotted working the DJ booth during Oakley 2013 Women’s Swim Launch (Hosted By Trimera Group) party held on July 22nd at SLS Hotel in Miami Beach.

Nick Cannon Says He Would Have Had Chuck E. Cheese Party For Twins

Nick Cannon stopped by “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Friday, May 11th for the special Mother’s Day show and he chats with Ellen about his twins first birthday in Paris. Let’s just say that it wasn’t his idea!

ON HIS TWINS’ FIRST BIRTHDAY:

Ellen: We’re looking at pictures of them. You said, you wanted for them to have a very normal life. How in the world are you and Mariah Carey raising them to have a normal life? How’s that working out for you?

Nick: Well, I don’t think you think having the first birthday in Paris would be my idea so, that was Mommy’s idea but I loved it…and our wedding anniversary is on the same day the kids were born. It’s kind of cool..

Ellen: That’s amazing.

Nick: So we renew our vows and everything and the kids will be able to say well, my first birthday was in Paris. I would have had it at Chuck E. Cheese, personally.

Nick Cannon Talks Mariah and “Forever”

Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey recently renewed their vows and from what it sounds like, Nick is still smitten with his wife. And how could he not be? He’s been pining for this girl for forever! In a recent interview Nick gushed over his wife and talked about “Forever”.

ON HOW HE FELT THE FIRST TIME HE MET MARIAH:

I presented her with an award at the Kid’s Choice Awards. I was so nervous but decided to take my chances and give her a kiss on the cheek! I had to have that kiss.

ON HOW HE KNEW MARIAH WOULD BE HIS FOREVER LOVE:

Mariah is a beautiful and talented person, and I’ve had a crush on her for as long as I can remember. Every day, my respect for Mariah continues to grow higher. She’s a caring, warm and funny person. People have no idea how funny she is! I feel like I’ve always known she was my forever love.

ON WHAT IT TAKES TO BE FOREVER:

Nobody can predict the future. You just have to give your all to the relationship you’re in and do your best to take care of your partner, communicate and give them every last drop of love you have. I think one of the most important things in a relationship is caring for your significant other through good times and bad. To celebrate our lasting love, Mariah and I get married each year on our anniversary.

ON FOREVER LOVE:

To me a forever love is a bond that can’t be broken. It’s like my love for “dembabies” and Mariah. You go through difficult times, but as long as you hang on to the beautiful things, it’s great – even when it’s rough, it’s real.

ON BEING THE INSPIRATION BEHIND MC’S FRAGRANCE “FOREVER”:

It’s incredible. Who could really imagine somebody dedicating a fragrance for your love? I was pretty much in awe. I’ve learned a lot watching Mariah create such successful fragrances. Every time Mariah wears “Forever”, it takes me back to the passion and excitement of when we first fell in love.

Awwww. These two are just too much. LOVE them!

Nick Cannon Has a Lupus auto-immune condition

It has been a rough few months for Nick Cannon and his family, with his health scares and all. After being hospitalized for blood clots in his lungs and undergoing several tests, it appears as if Nick finally has some answers.

According to People magazine, Nick revealed that he has a Lupus-like autoimmune disease. Nick explained, “The blood clot thing was probably the scariest because … I’ve known people who have passed away from that. I thought I was getting better and then that happened, so that kind of came out of nowhere.”

After quitting his radio show he has been able to focus on getting himself healthy. He adds, “I’m just trying to make sure I put my health first. They kind of say [my] autoimmune [disease] is – like a lupus type of thing, but no one else in my family has it.”

And even though it has been a trying time for Nick and his fam, he is remaining positive. “I feel blessed to be alive,” Cannon said. “If it wasn’t discovered, I don’t know [what would have happened].

Well it’s good to hear that Nick now knows. It is hard not knowing what is keeping you down. I am sure Nick has the best doctors to care for him so that has to be encouraging for everyone close to him. We continue to think of you, Nick!
