This story makes me LOL because once again, Nick Cannon is running his mouth about people who are actually in the news in order to get himself in there with them. His most recent thoughts are about Kanye West and how if he was really a genius or modern day Shakespeare, he wouldn’t have to brag about it. To which the world says: duh. We don’t need Nick Cannon’s commentary on world issues, to be honest.
I love @KanyeWest like a brother & been one of his biggest fans & friends since day 1, but Genius is eternal patience.

Maybe I should've just called him and told him that in private. Oops, my bad! Twitter-stream-of-consciousness LOL

I just got online and saw all these @KanyeWest interviews and I was inspired to rant. Oh well, going back to Thanksgiving. We cookin' son!

Of course, he also wrote a more questionable tweet that he deleted, which read: “@KanyeWest Real geniuses don’t have to tell everyone that they are a genius.”
Shots fired! Watch out, Nick – Kanye will be on your ass like he was Sway’s.

Wait, it’s not exactly what it sounds like. Someone pretending to be part of Nick Cannon‘s crew stole a shit ton of stuff from Fred Segal in Beverly Hills, which, first of all, why Nick Cannon? Of all the celebrities you could pretend to be friends with, THAT’S who you choose? I suppose it is slightly more believable given his “joke” of a career, but dear me.
Here’s what happened. A guy who called himself Michael called the Santa Monica store and said he worked for Nick, and, being the hubby of Mariah Carey, he needed some jewelry STAT.
Michael asked the woman from Fred Segal to meet him at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood with the goods. The woman obliged, put the jewelry in a bag and drove to the Hotel.
A guy met the woman at the front door, but it wasn’t Michael … it was a guy claiming to be a security guard and dressed like one. The guy apparently indicated he would take the goods up to Nick’s room and come down with cash — in order to avoid paying taxes.
You guessed it. The woman gave the dude the goods and that was the last she saw of anyone.
Uh, so… she just left? She didn’t try to go into the hotel and report them, or describe what just happened to ACTUAL employees? Also, who in the hell agrees to hand things of such high value over to anyone, let alone a security guard? Anyone with sense would ask to be escorted with the items to Nick to receive cash in hand as she couldn’t just randomly hand over thousands of dollars of shit to some random. SMH.

There’s only room for one diva in the Cannon-Carey house, apparently, as Nick Cannon has admitted that wife Mariah Carey thinks his music career is a “joke”. How awful is that? Nick is getting ready to release a new album called White People Party Music and apparently has a hit single called ‘Gigolo’ (uh…) and said in a new interview that Mariah doesn’t take his stuff seriously. I was about to feel pretty bad for him, but with a title like that, who could take it seriously?
He told Enstarsat the InTouch Weekly Icons & Idols after-party for the VMAs that Carey is in the studio “getting her album finished” and he called it an “incredible” record. Cannon added that he and his wife do not give each other advice about their albums, but that Carey has strong feelings against his music.
“She thinks my music is a big joke,” he said, before adding with laughs, “but so do I so it doesn’t matter.”
He then explained the difference between their different sounds and in the process praised his wife’s talents.
“My music is silly, you know what I mean, she makes anthems that changes people’s lives,” he continued. “I make songs about shaking ya ass. My album is called White People Party Music so that’s how I would describe it. Fist-pumping-good-time-have-a-blast-type of music.”
I mean, I sort of get it – Mariah has more pull, but why does that mean that she can’t support his work, as well? I love me some Mariah and I agree that she’s “changed lives” (well…), but that doesn’t mean that “silly” music can’t have its place. Poor Nick is a whipping boy in that household, it seems, but he apparently likes it, so right on!

Mariah Carey cracked some ribs and dislocated her shoulder during a music video shoot a couple of months ago, leaving her with nerve damage and trouble moving her arm and hands. Serious shit! While she’s managed to make the best of it with bejeweled slings and the like, recovery has been slow-going… but she’s getting there!
“My wife is doing a lot, lot better. The physical therapy is definitely working.
“At [the recent premiere of Lee Daniels' The Butler], she still couldn’t really move her right hand, but now she’s got a little bit of the functionality of her hand back. She’s still got the blinged-out slings, but hopefully she won’t need those pretty soon!”
Aw, poor Mariah. Having been temporarily disabled when I broke my ankle, I know how tough that shit can be, so here’s hoping she’s better soon. (I don’t know why I’m feeling so empathetic today, so let’s just go with it.)

I know Nick Cannon used to star with Amanda Bynes on All That because I read that in an article a while back (I have zero memory of him on that show) and it’s fine that he’s commented on Amanda’s breakdown once or twice because that’s what people do. However, it seems like he’s sorta taking shit to the next level and won’t shut up about it, even going so far as to release an open letter on his official website offering his support (despite being knocked back by her before when he offered).
When a person is told all of their life that they are awesome, the best, the greatest and they are catered to every moment of the day. Imagine being the breadwinner in your household before you can even drive. Imagine you parents, teachers, and employers NEVER telling you NO. Anything you ask for or want, the world gives you, at some point you are bound to self-destruct. I call this “access to excess”. I’ve seen it happen to many of my friends and colleagues young and old. It goes back to that old saying; “Too much of anything is bad for anyone”. Whether it’s fame, money, sex, drugs, attention. It’s all a dangerous addiction. When there is no balance in your life a person will always become victim to their reality or lack thereof. The question is, when this destruction occurs, who is there to help put back the pieces. What do you do when you have no solid support system? When you feel like your friends are talking behind your back. When you feel like your co-workers are jealous and out to competitively sabotage you. When you feel your family has turned your back on you. When you feel like you parents have a conditional appreciation for you and only really love your money. You find yourself alone in that dark hole. Then you have to rely on your own devices once again in this vulnerable state. You become paranoid, frantic, manic, irrational because you can bounce your thoughts or ideas off of anyone anymore. Your reality no longer allows you to reason with the world, so you try to break through to get back to what you think is common ground.
I mean, this is just PART of the diatribe Nick wrote – he seriously put together about 2,000 words on the subject. I can’t tell you it’s “worth the read” because it’s nothing that common sense won’t tell you, but I suppose someone will care about it? Here’s the thing, bro: if people are asking you – someone who starred with Amanda on a kids show over a decade ago – about her life now, you can pretty much figure that no one’s really interested in you or what you’re doing and that’s the bigger concern. I think his heart is in the right place and he does seem like a genuinely nice guy, but come on, man. Move on.

Mariah Carey dislocated her shoulder during a video shoot a couple weeks ago and has since been bringing glamour to all of our lives during her performances with the donning of many a bejeweled and sequined arm slings. However, turns out it’s not all just fun and games – the injury left her with some nerve damage, making it hard to regain movement in her arm. She also cracked a few ribs so she’s in a bit of a state at the moment. :(
toofab: You wife Mariah just dislocated her shoulder, how is she doing after that?
Cannon: She’s doing a lot better, but she still doesn’t have movement in her right arm, there’s nerve damage. Her shoulder is definitely a lot better, back in place, but she also had some cracked ribs. She can’t move. The fact that she doesn’t have use of her right arm right now has been pretty tough on her, but the doctor said with a lot more rest and relaxation she’ll be fine.
Damn, that’s a pretty serious injury. I’m sure it’s even less fun since she has twin toddlers to take care of. Here’s hoping for a speedy recovery!
