After months and months of speculation, Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have confirmed that they’re expecting a baby, due in the spring. Carey told “Access Hollywood”‘s Billy Bush (in a segment that appeared on “Today” this morning), “It’s been a long journey, but it’s been tough because I’ve been trying to have … to hold onto a shred of privacy. And that was not easy.” And in a somewhat shocking revelation, the couple said that early on in their marriage, Carey got pregnant, but then miscarried a month later. As a result, they’ve been cautious with this pregnancy, though they’re obviously overjoyed. “Uh, it’s absolutely emotional, but first, so many reasons I mean obviously the greatest gift on earth is a child,” Cannon said. “But … you know how much we have been through, you know.” [The Today Show

I think it’s high time for Mariah Carey to end the speculation and just tell the world that she’s preggers already. It was Nick Cannon‘s 30th birthday this weekend, and at his party, Mariah walked around all night wearing a black trench coat over her ensemble. She also skipped taking photos, entered the club through the back entrance, and was reported to be rather anti-social. And rather than getting tipsy as per usual, she stuck to cranberry juice. Very suspicious. Or maybe she just has a UTI and feels miserable? [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
Take a look at the above images of Mariah Carey: In one picture, she’s in an adorable crop top and shorts set. In the other, she’s decked out in pants and a long-sleeved shirt. Which is real and which is fake? It turns out the fully-clothed Carey is Saudi Arabia’s censored version of the image, in which adorable capri pants were airbrushed onto Mariah’s naked legs. In the conservative Muslim country even superstars have to tone it down.
After the jump, some other Mariah Carey album covers and images that have gotten the Photoshop Magic treatment. Keep reading »
Dear Christina Aguilera,
Mariah here. You know me as multi-platinum zillion-selling recording artist Mariah Carey, but you can just call me Mimi. Me and a few of the S&M crew (that’s singing and movies crew, guys!) wanted to reach out to you because we heard you had a new movie coming out, called “Burlesque.”
First: Soooooo sorry about Lady Gaga stealing your whole kooky blonde lady steez — we heard you had to cancel a bunch of dates on your last tour because you just couldn’t get it together. No worries, mama.
But back to “Burlesque.” Keep reading »
When Nick Cannon proposed to his lady, Mariah Carey, he hid her engagement rock inside a Ring Pop lollipop, as a nod to her love for the candy, then replicated his originality in an encrusted lollipop for their anniversary. Now, Mariah’s planning to capitalize off her sweet tooth by launching a line of fragrances with Bazooka Candy Brands. Yes, you read that right. Mariah plans to introduce the world to her candy scents this July, available in three fragrances: Honey, Mine Again, and Ribbon, so everyone can smell just as sweet as her. “I think this line really comes with a fresh approach that is both innovative and accessible to my loyal fan base and beyond, but will bring something new to the market,” she explained, totally justifying her decision to combine the world of beauty and candy. While Mariah’s most likely aiming to sell to a more sophisticated market, this sounds like the perfect present for your 8-year-old daughter, niece, or cousin. [WWD] Keep reading »
“I’m pretty sure that when my wife is ready to make any announcement it won’t be to the media, to the public, first. She’ll tell her family, she’ll tell her friends, and then, you know, when she’s ready to share with the rest of the world … [For names] we’re gonna do it like George Foreman. We’re gonna name all of our kids Mariah no matter if they’re boys or girls. … Mariah No. 1, Boy Mariah, Man Mariah, Tall Mariah. It’s gonna be a house full of people named Mariah.”
—Nick Cannon explains that he and Mariah aren’t ready to talk about the baby rumors yet. But luckily, he’s thinking baby names. What, he didn’t like our suggestions? [People] Keep reading »
And finally, we are starting to get some answers on which famous ladies are actually pregnant and which just made unfortunate wardrobe decisions involving loose-fitting tops. Yesterday, Alicia Keys announced that—yep—she is in fact preggers. And today, Radar Online has a source that says Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are indeed having a babe. For Mariah, the speculation began when she (a) plumped up, which many thought could be a sign she was trying hormone therapy for in vitro fertilization, (b) said at an awards show, “Something else very special is on the way!” and (c) dropped out of Tyler Perry’s “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide.” When Radar called Mariah’s rep for confirmation, instead of denying the pregnancy, she said, “I’m not at liberty to discuss Mariah’s personal life at this time.” Sketchy. But we are very excited for the adorable couple and are happy Mariah is joining the proud camp of hot Hollywood mamas over 40. [Radar]
Mariah has historically picked horrendous names for her movies and albums, and we don’t want to see this baby end up named Butterfly. After the jump, some name suggestions. Keep reading »
