Last night on 20/20 with Barbara Walters, Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon showed their twins Moroccan and Monroe to the world for the first time &mdahs; or as that picture indicates, The Incredibles Always up for fun, Nick Cannon said the day Mariah Carey gave birth he was ready with a video camera and music. He told the doctor to let him know when he was ready to pull the twins out, so he could play the music. Mariah was in complete agreement. She picked the track: a live version of her song “Fantasy.”more..
Lee Daniels’ “Push: Based on the Novel by Sapphire” was a surprise winner at this year’s Sundance Film festival, winning both Grand Jury and Audience awards. I posted about this film when it went into production, Lee Daniels Bringing “Push” to the Big Screen That was late 2007, since that time, you may have seen a few trailers for movies with the same title. Dakota Fanning’s new movie is a Push thing. So you’ll understand the new distinction Lee Daniels had to make. This is the movie based on the book.. in which an overweight, illiterate, 16-year-old Harlem girl is impregnated by her father, abused by her mother, is HIV positive, and is just trying to figure out what it all means.more..
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon may have kept their wedding plans secret, but they are now planning to invite all of their friends to a big summer wedding party in the Hamptons to celebrate their union. Page Six is reporting that Mariah Carey rented Stone Meadow Farm in East Hampton, L.I. for the small price of $125,000.
That kind of money gets them 10 bedrooms, 18,000 square feet, and 8 acres to play with. The party will reportedly be hosted by Def Jam chief L.A. Reid.more..
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon had dinner at Nobu in Malibu, California recently. Not one to dodge a camera, Nick Cannon had a message for anyone questioning the status of their marriage or believe Mariah has him on an Upgrade plan.. show me some love!
Mrs. Cannon showed the paps lots of love.more..
Look who’s getting some pocket change? Amy Winehouse is said to be taking a break from performing while she figures out whether she’s going to smoke herself into that wax figure (above) or maintain her health enough to move on with her career.
25-year-old Prince Azim is attempting to lure Amy Winehouse out of the house for at least one more performance; he’s offering her $2 milllion for a one-night only show at a private party this November.
Mariah Carey chose Ellen for her first post-marriage interview.
Mariah said Nick Cannon always talked about wanting to marry her. He basically used The Secret: talked it into existence.
She mentioned how they hid the wedding from everyone by using the music video shoot as a disguise. And they knew people would say it was a publicity stunt. They don’t care.
If you do.. here are all four clips (I didn’t post this.)more..
Mariah Carey is canceling spots all over her personal calendar. She was supposed to be a guest on The View next Monday - not any more. A performance at the Dubai Festival Resort - I’m kinda busy now. Interviews on British radio stations - I’m not a morning person. It’s the glow of new love blinding outside distractions. So it was surprising to see Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon together at Lincoln Center last night for Time Magazine’s Most Influential People in the World event.
It was their first time in the public eye since they got matching tattoos (there is something weird going on with the lights in that picture, her face isn’t melting.)more..
Alright, I said I wouldn’t dig, but this kind of fell on my lap. People is reporting that Vogue’s fashion editor, Andre Leon Talley, got an email from Mariah Carey on Monday confirming her marriage to Nick Cannon. Take it and bake it..
“I received an email from her [Monday] and she is so happy. She really sounds like someone on her honeymoon. I love Nick Cannon for Mariah,” Talley said. “For Mariah, this is poetry.”
Now if the baby bump Mediatakeout rumor is also true, that would be something.more..
Mariah Carey is this month’s Vibe magazine cover girl. They’ve got a fantastic summertime look going on. No green screen here, Vibe flew to the Caribbean island of Antigua to shoot Mariah in her favorite outifit: anything itsy bitsy or mini and skimpy. This time it was a black bikini. Too bad these types of magazine articles are crafted months in advance or they might have checked her fingers for that Cannon ring. That whole rumored marriage to Nick is so left field, it’s easier not to believe it than to do any kind of investigative digging.
Mariah Cannon. How’s that sound? Actually.. not that bad.
In the 90’s, Brett Ratner made a name for himself with music videos. Since then he’s graduated to some big budget movies - check the credits of those Rush Hour flicks and X-Men: Last Stand. He did break to direct Mariah Carey’s “We Belong Together” video in 2005. Due to the writer’s strike, Brett had some free time on his hands once again. So who calls him?.. It’s Mariah Carey. She let him listen to her new album E=MC2 and they hashed out video treatments for the first single, “Touch My Body.”
After two days of filming, the video was completed just this week. If you have Brett tell it, it’s going to be the best thing you’ve seen since Mike Jac did the zombie slide.
Speaking to Ryan Seacrest on Los Angeles’s KIIS FM, Brett chatted up the video..more..
