Nick Cannon Fantasized About Mariah As A Young Boy

Let’s talk numbers real quick. Nick Cannon was born in 1980. Mariah was born in 1970.  Her first album came out in 1990, when she was 20 and Nick was 10.  So yeah, little ten-year-old Nick Cannon could have definitely rocked out to “Visions of Love” and made out with her poster or whatever.  Crazy, right?

This creepy little tidbit of information comes from an interview that Nick did with Perez Hilton:

Nick Cannon: I always knew I was going to be in love with Mariah Carey.

Perez Hilton: Really?

Nick Cannon: She was my celebrity crush since I was a kid.

Perez Hilton: Really?

Nick Cannon: So I was like when I get the opportunity, I’m going to just let her know how I feel and just go hard, just — and I went hard and then from that point she connected and we –

Perez Hilton: She was ready.

Nick Cannon: Yeah. And it was just –

Perez Hilton: It was just like the right time.

You guys, if this kind of thing actually happens in the world, I’m about to get real mentally unstable.  I’m going to be like “I kissed posters of the Backstreet Boys when I was a kid, why am I not married with Backstreet babies?  We could all live in a special house in Las Vegas like the Sister Wives, except they’d be Brother Husbands.  Why can Nick Cannon live the dream and not me?”  And then I’m going to stumble around, carrying my teddy bear with me everywhere I go and have crying fits roughly every 15 minutes.  I should know, I’ve seen me do it.

Thanks a ton, Perez.  This is why I don’t like you.

  • Well, hey, let’s not forget Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise – I’m pretty sure she said she had a poster of him in Top Gun on her wall as a kid. She’s “living the dream”, too. Lucky her.
