Mariah Carey: Nick Cannon Would Be A Great Dad

Mariah Carey: Nick Cannon Would Be A Great Dad

Mariah Carey grabs hold of her husband Nick Cannon in the latest cover photo spread in Elle. Here are a few more interesting quotes pulled from the article:

On Nick, who’s ‘motivated by faith’: “We really do share a similar spiritual outlook on life… Even though people have their own fears about ‘Was I in a relationship before this, was I not in a relationship before this,’ to me, I wasn’t in a real relationship; it was more of a friendship and a working situation.”

On the importance of her future kids living in ‘reality’: “You can get caught up in Hollywood-land or celebrity-land, and that’s maybe not the best thing for kids, ’cause they didn’t ask for it. Speaking for myself, I don’t know that I always felt safe and secure [as a child] — and that’s nobody’s fault; we’re not mudslinging or trying to slay anybody — but truly I really feel like it’s very important to be responsible and to think, Well, maybe if I do this it’s not the best thing for my child. You have to take a backseat a little bit, and as someone in the public eye, you’re not used to doing that…. I couldn’t imagine anybody that I’ve ever met being a better dad [than Nick].”

    well – at least Nick’s “good side” is the opposite of Mariah’s “good side” otherwise they could never be photographed this way. Mariah only likes the right side of her face photographed. Google images of Mariah and you will see most of them all are showing the right side of her face or at an angle – very rarely head on. It’s SOOOOOOO annoying.

    I do not like her, she is so fake from her body to her personality. She has changed a lot from the Mariah back then when she was beautiful and I loved her music. I can not stand hearing her voice in music or interviews.

    She looks great but I wish she’d choose to pose with more clothing on in such photos. She has a great body but that doesn’t mean she has to put it out there all the time. I know sex sells, but her voice gives her the option to rely on talent alone.

    I hope they are both happy and I wish them the best of luck.

    Mariah Carey is or should i say WAS a very talented artist.. She USED TO BE BEAUTIFUL!!! back in the day. WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED TO HER NOW??? All she does in her videos is twist and turn her body and making these stupid faces thinking she’s cute. Fat ***** needs to get over herself!!! of course she looks great in photos…That’s what photo editors are for!!!!!!!! Sure she worked out and slimmed down, but she didn’t do it without a trainer. she also claims to be a size 2. There is NO WAY in hell she’ s a two!!!! I’ve been athletic all my life and played various sports including boxing, basket ball and track and I am not even a two. She may have lost some fat, but her body build is naturally that of a thick girl and that’s ok because thick is beautiful but she cant trick herself into thinking she’s this dainty little thing. there are soooo many celebs claiming to be a size two and they all look like they differ in waist size. Mariah Carey was an amazing artist back in the day… Now she’s gone horribly wrong!!! she can’t even sing anymore, and she looks like ****!!! what happened to the old Mariah when she used to sing that song “without you” she was so natural and beautiful back then. She is too old to be pulling that **** now. get over yourself you fat old *****!!!! The only good thing she’s done recently is to cast Wentworth Miller in her music videos.
