Being named after a superstar certainly has its perks. While performing a concert in Sydney, Australia on January 3, Mariah Carey invited a six-year-old named Mariah Cini on stage upon finding out that the little girl was named after her.
During a break between songs, Carey asked Cini if she could look at her ensemble. Complimenting her with, “Your outfit is very pretty. That is pink and it’s gorgeous!”, Carey added that she she hated that she was the only one with the name Mariah growing up and now she’s excited to see other girls with the same name.
According to Contact Music, Cini’s father Chris met Carey during a concert in Australia in 1998 and decided to name his daughter after the songstress. “Mariah Carey is truly a beautiful, genuine person. She’s protective of her fans and she’s not above herself at all. I knew when we were having a baby girl that she would be my Mariah Grace,” he said.
“I’ve always liked her, from when I was born, basically,” Mariah Cini added. “Dad always said if she came back [to Australia] we’d go to visit her and I couldn’t believe it. I know I’m one of the luckiest fans in Australia.”
Mariah Carey may be a diva, but she’s humble and certainly knows how to treat her fans right. What a class act!
Mariah Carey is a Twitter addict, and she shares everything with her followers. This includes pictures of Nick Cannon in the hospital.
“Please pray for Nick as he’s fighting to recover from a mild kidney failure,” she tweeted early Wednesday morning.
“This is us in the hospital – role reversal; Last year it was me attached to the machines (after having dembabies) and Nick was there with me through it, and now here we are,” she added.
“We’re trying to be as festive as possible under the circumstances but please keep Nick in your thoughts because this is very painful,” Mariah writes. “They tried to kick me out of the hospital but here I am pon de bed with Mr. C.”
There is proof for you. Mariah is a very dedicated wife who is at her husband’s side when he is in need. Who would have thought?
As “America’s Got Talent” gears up for its seventh season, Howard Stern, the King of all media, is hired on as a judge to replace Piers Morgan.
If you’re a big fan of the outspoken radio DJ, don’t fret. Production for the televised talent show will be moved to New York City, so Stern can continue on with his Sirius/XM radio show, BuzzFeed reports.
I have to admit, I find “America’s Got Talent” extremely corny and boring but now that Stern is on board, his larger-than-life personality will definitely make things more entertaining to watch. I’d be curious to hear him speak his mind to a family of baby jugglers from Oklahoma.
The New York Post writes the shock jock allegedly requested $20 million dollars for his new job. Being a judge is no joke, Stern tells his listeners.
“I take judging very seriously. In order to up my credibility, I will wear a suit,” he jokes.
In this video below, you can watch the cocky Howard talk about how he looks forward to the show, especially to “judge these lunatics”.
No word yet on whether or not anyone’s replacing the snooze-fest of a host that is Nick Cannon.
After all that negative attention from the faux-flying dog story, you’d think Nick Cannon would cozy up in a corner somewhere and not peep a word.
Nick and his poor taste are back! This time, he’s pulling a classic Jessica Simpson move on Twitter: not thinking before he tweets. Case in point:
The sound you can now here is the world’s smallest violin playing. Maybe you get pulled over because you’re a shitty driver, Nick. Did you ever think about that?
He also tweeted about getting off the hook one time. “Just got pulled over again. For the 1st time ever… The Cop let me go! He was a black man! ‘Preciate it Brotha!!,” he wrote. What a class act!
Get your barf bangs out, everybody!
Newlyweds Nikki Reed and American Idol contestant Paul McDonald are so in love they had to record a cheesy song to let it all out.
The couple premiered their song “Now That I Got You” on Ryan Seacreast’s radio show this morning. She told Ryan she attends a lot of open mic nights with her hubby and plans to record more songs with him.
You can listen to the song posted below.
Nikki and Paul aren’t the first couple to record music together but they definitely should be the last. Before you know it, Gwyneth Paltrow can be found on every Coldplay song! The gesture is nice but incredibly cheesy and unnecessary in my opinion. Let’s separate business from pleasure, shall we? Here are some other couples who should never make music together.
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel
We all know Justin’s a triple threat. Jessica’s only known for her acting – for now! Let’s hope Justin doesn’t convince her to sing harmonies for his next album.
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon
She can belt a note like no other, but Nick should stick to making an ass of himself on television. The R&B diva is doing fine on her own.
Fergie and Josh Dumel
Fergie’s one fly babe when she’s on stage with the Black Eyed Peas, but could you imagine Josh Dumel booty-popping with her on stage? That’s an epic fail waiting to happen.
Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin
Gwyneth have have sang in that Country Strong movie and duetted with Cee Lo Green at award shows, but if she ever summons Chris Martin into a song, all hell will break lose. She should stick to mediocre acting and raving about organic food.
As we suspected, Nick Cannon’s stunt yesterday was a hoax. As we reported yesterday, Nick Cannon was trying to prank his radio co-host by tying helium balloons to her dog and flying him over the Hudson River.
Really funny right? This was about as lacklustre as everything else he does.
To no surprise, after he asked fans to look for the flying dog on the radio station’s website, people were unhappy. Tweets poured in scrutinizing Cannon for his “cruel” prank and demanded he be reprimanded if it was true.
Fortunately for the dog, Charlie Roo, it was only a stuffed animal Nick used. This morning Nick took to Twitter to address the issue, saying ”I think I might be getting fired. Radio gone seriously wrong.”
He also made reference to football player Michael Vick who was actually jailed for animal cruelty saying: ”People are acting like I’m (Michael) Vick. I apologize. Now get over it.”
It’s safe to say there was nothing funny about Cannon’s practical joke. What is funny, though, is that PETA actually commented on the issue.
According to MSNBC, a PETA spokesperson stated:
“If bad taste were a crime, we’d be going to jail with Nick, but joking about killing a dog, a kid, an old person — anyone — isn’t cool when there’s always the danger that some numbskull will do it for real…Had it been true, Nick would have PETA to worry about, and that’s far worse than going to Rikers Island (prison).”
Although they never issued a statement, the producers of America’s Got Talent can’t be happy about the public backlash. It’s also a little scary to think Cannon just became a father. Let’s hope he doesn’t pull any “funny jokes” on his own kids.
Based on these funny coffee table books by Amanda McCall and Ben Schwartz (of Parks and Recreation), we decided to create little postcards for certain celebrities. The authors suggest showing pictures of cute animals when you want to break bad news to somebody really helps ease the pain.
You can watch their promotional video below.
Say It With Baby Animals really inspired me to create my own cards for 5 celebrites that are getting into shenanigans these days.
Just last April, the famous couple welcomed twins into their life, Moroccan Scott being the boy and Monroe being the girl.
Now, Cannon claims the two babies already have distinct personalities. He shares that Morrocan is laid back like he is, meanwhile his daughter is a diva like his mother. Did I mention Monroe is one month old?
“My daughter is, that’s her mothers child. Like she is like a diva. She sleeps like this with her hands. She’s like, when she wants something, she’s instantly crying letting you know likes she’s going to be a little handful. And it’s crazy because you can see like my son is definitely more like me. He’s like chill, laid back,” says Cannon.
Nick also revealed Mariah was always his celebrity crush, and the two wasted no time getting to know each other after meeting .
He says: “[At the beginning] we didn’t see each other because you know I was in LA and she was in New York most of the time. But it was one of those things where we were inseparable to a point where when I’m – I always knew I was going to be in love with Mariah Carey. She was my celebrity crush since I was a kid. 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. When we weren’t there we were on the phone all the time. It was just like, it was real. Six hours on the phone. Like who do you talk to for six hours? What do you talk about for six hours? That’s like – it was like that junior high love.”
I can tell that the daughter is going to be a hand full. Imagine being raised with nothing but the best and having the diva of the century as your mother. Watch out, world.
After much speculation, Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have finally revealed the names of their twins who were born on Saturday, reports Perez Hilton.
The happy couple have named their son Moroccan Scott Cannon, his middle name taken from Cannon’s own middle name, as well as his grandmother’s maiden name. As for his first name, Moroccan comes from Carey’s Moroccan Room, the top tier of her New York City apartment, where Cannon proposed. Although it comes off as an odd name at first, it makes perfect sense once you hear their reasoning!
As well, they named their daughter Monroe Cannon, after Carey’s long-time inspiration, Marilyn Monroe. The baby girl was not given a middle name since Carey does not have one herself.
“It has been a long, emotional journey for this family,” Mariah’s rep, Cindi Berger, told CNN, “and I couldn’t be happier for all of them.” We couldn’t agree more, and the names they’ve chosen are adorable!
The couple received their baby twins on August 30 following their third wedding anniversary, renewing their hospital vows in the hospital.
What do you think of Mariah and Nick’s babies’ names?
After wife Mariah Carey gave birth yesterday to both a little girl and a little boy, Us Weekly reports that husband Nick Cannon is bursting with joy.
Carey gave birth at an L.A. hospital just after noon on Saturday, coincidentally – the same day as the couple’s fourth wedding anniversary.
Cannon took to his tried and true form of mass communication, Twitter, to communicate his joy at the babies’ birth: “My wife just gave me the most incredible anniversary gift ever in life! I won’t ever be able to top this!”
He added a more serious note the next day though, saying, “I’m in the happiest place I’ve ever been in my life. I never had more amazing things happening. I am humbled by God’s Favor!”
Us Weekly reported yesterday that the couple rushed to the hospital in their Rolls Royce Phantom, welcoming both their son and daughter as Carey’s #1 hit single from 2006, “We Belong Together,” played on in the background.
Though the babies’ names have still not been reported, good to know Cannon has manned up a little since he first tweeted, “I am probably going to faint in the delivery room! I need to man up!”
The 30-year-old obviously did what he had to, to support his wife, 42, through the delivery of not one, but two children. The couple, who has previously opened up about the struggle to conceive after miscarrying, are undoubtedly elated with the arrival of two healthy, happy babies.
Although the new mother has yet to comment on the exciting news, Twitter friends around the world took to their accounts to congratulate the couple on their happy news. Celebrities like Alyssa Milano, Nicki Minaj, Jermaine Dupri and Katy Perry all had kind words for the first-time parents.
Wrote Minaj: “Congratulations Mariah & Nick!!!!!!!!! The twins have finally landed on earth!!! Yaaayyyyy!!!!!”
Now that the twins have finally landed, we’re anticipating some interesting names.
Mariah Carey gave birth to two twins this morning in Los Angeles. Carey was driven to the hospital by her husband Nick Cannon in the couple’s Rolls Royce. Today is evidently the couple’s third wedding anniversary.
Carey’s rep said the two have not named the babies yet … and were listening to “We Belong Together” after the kids were born.
It was nice of Nick to drive Mariah to the hospital. We hope she didn’t make a mess of the car’s luxurious interior, and Nick has proven he is good for something besides knocking her up.
Good luck to the new happy family!
As you can see in the photo Mariah definitely has quite a baby bump, and “thanks” to Nick Cannon for shielding her breasts. Here’s hoping this baby pops soon. But nevertheless, even for a pregnant woman, Mariah still looks good.
Too good for Nick Cannon, but that’s another story.
Radar Online is reporting that 40 year old songstress Mariah Carey and husband Nick Cannon may be expecting twins.
Mariah confirmed rumors of pregnancy after weeks of speculation, but wouldn’t say any more than that. That is, until she accidentally used a plural pronoun when referring to her growing baby bump on Radio Disney.
Carey told DJ Ernie D that she frequently sings Christmas music from her new album to her bump. The Precious star added enthusiastically “I just hope they don’t come out hating Christmas!”
I guess we’ll find out in the spring when Mariah’s due!
Listen to the interview below:
There has been months and months of speculation around whether or not Mariah Carey is pregnant. Although everyone knew she was pregnant due to her protruding baby bump at recent events, she still refused to comment. According to Perezhilton.com, Carey and her husband, Nick Cannon, have finally revealed the ‘not so big’ secret that Carey is in fact pregnant.
The couple will have their first child this spring and they couldn’t be happier. Carey suffered a miscarriage two years ago so she was hesitant about sharing information on her most recent pregnancy. Hopefully the baby will inherit Carey’s vocal skills and Cannon’s errr..dance skills? Wonder if it will be a girl or a boy?
Well, congrats to the happy couple.
Many people may be surprised to hear that Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey are still married but, although the honeymoon may be over, Cannon is really enjoying life as Mr. Carey.
According to People magazine, Cannon said his marriage is “amazing.” Although Carey was not in Las Vegas with her husband at the opening of Las Vegas’s Christian Audigier The Nightclub Friday, Cannon still beamed about his married life.
“It’s the best thing that ever happened to me,” said Cannon.
Carey and Cannon met on the set of her video “Bye Bye,” and married just a few short weeks after in May.
It was only a matter of time before the Diva had her day.
Mariah Carey isn’t satisfied with the quick ceremony she and husband Nick Cannon shared recently. MSNBC reports that she is currently planning an extravagant second wedding.
“It’s going to be held in New York City in the next six weeks,” a source confessed. “Picture a wedding on the scale of Liza Minnelli’s (to David Gest) and you’ll be on the right track.”
Carey reportedly plans to invite 2,000 guests, including a minimum of 14 bridesmaids.
Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey made their first public appearance as husband and wife at Time magazine’s “100 Most Influential People in the World” event Thursday night.
Carey, 38, and Cannon, 27, have told People magazine that they got tattoos to mark the special occasion. “One thing [few people] knew was we got tattoos a few weeks earlier. So anyone who saw my tattoo wasn’t surprised,” said Carey.
Cannon added, “To me rings are special and exciting, but tattoos mean more than anything. They’re forever and ever. They professed our love.” Apparently, Carey has the words “Mrs. Cannon” tattooed on the back of her neck.
Carey said that about a dozen guests attended the sunset wedding, where they celebrated with Maine lobster and Dom Perignon champagne. It is believed the couple began dating in late March on the set of Carey’s new video. “Bye Bye,” in which Cannon was cast as the singer’s love interest. A few short weeks later on April 30th, the couple wed at Carey’s Bahamian estate.
No, it’s not another celebrity publicity stunt: Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon really did get hitched.
The couple tied the knot the yesterday at Carey’s new home in the Bahamas.
“Yes, we know,” confirmed Linda Cannon, a relative to the groom. “He called us and told us all about it. We are happy for him. If that is what he wants then we are happy for him.”
A rep for Jacob & Co. also confirmed yesterday that Cannon dished out $2.5 million for Carey’s 17-carat ring.
This is Carey’s second marriage. The platinum-selling diva, 39, split from Tommy Mottola in 1998 after only five years of marriage.
Cannon, 27, was once engaged to model Selita Ebanks, but this is his first trip down the aisle.
Actor and singer NICK CANNON has stunned fans by marrying Victoria’s Secret model SELITA EBANKS after a whirlwind three-week romance.
The couple wed in Las Vegas last weekend.
