| Filed under: Exclusives!Music MinuteMariah CareyNick CannonChatting With...Reality TV

He is one busy man!

Perezzers recently sat down to chat with Nick Cannon. And, of course, we talked about Mariah - a lot!

We also chatted about his radio show (which Perez calls into every morning), the new season of America's Got Talent, his standup career, his music career, dem babies and a bunch more.

Read some highlights from our interview…. after the jump.

And watch our chat in full (above)!

Perez Hilton: What's it been like being a dad?

Nick Cannon: Man, it's hard to leave the house honestly. I mean, as much as I love what I do and the hustle when I get home and I get home and I see those two little faces looking up at me that look like my face, it's like, it's unbelievable. It kind of gives you a whole new inspiration and whole new reason to kind of get out there and do it everyday.

Perez Hilton: What surprised you the most about the twins or having children?

Nick Cannon: The fact that they have personalities.

Perez Hilton: And they’re like four months old, three months, two months old?

Nick Cannon: One month.

Perez Hilton: One month wow. They already have personalities?

Nick Cannon: Yeah, personalities. And it's crazy because you can see like my son is definitely more like me. He's like chill, laid back –

Perez Hilton: At one month?

Nick Cannon: Yeah. And but 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.

Perez Hilton: And have there been talks? Do you want to have even more?

Nick Cannon: [See video for answer]

(Music clip)

Perez Hilton: Now you and Mariah have been together I think four years now?

Nick Cannon: Yeah, man, going on four years.

Perez Hilton: 2007, like April 2007 I remember when you started dating. Was it the kind of thing you’re just like immersed in each other like were you just –

Nick Cannon: Absolutely.

Perez Hilton: You saw each other every single day?

Nick Cannon: Well not — 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.

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.

Nick Cannon: When we weren’t there we were on the phone all the time. It was just like, it was real so –

Perez Hilton: You had long phone calls like old school?

Nick Cannon: 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.

Perez Hilton: What do you think is the secret to proving to people, like we're still together four years later, we're making it work?

Nick Cannon: [See answer in video.]

Perez Hilton: Festive. That's a very Mariah word.

Nick Cannon: We just like to have fun. Like outside of everything else, if we cant have a good time doing it, then why do it.

    I'd only watch one of your lame ass interviews if I knew someone would knock that hat off your melon to reveal the botched hairplugs.



  2. 2

    You should have asked how the hell a nobody like him got with someone like mariah!!!!



  3. 3

    Cannon is a loser. Thats all you need to know. So I wont even bother watching the interview. Truth is noone cares about him.

    Re: Hairplugs for Hilton – My thoughts exactly! What does Piggy think he's getting away with!?



  5. 5

    I liked Drumline



  6. 6

    He's a non-issue!



  7. 7

    u should asked about mariah's new cd!



  8. 8

    You sound like a screeching howler monkey.



  9. 9

    You look like sh!t with those gay hats.

    That man hit the jackpot when Mariah chose him as her babbydaddy… It really gave his career a much needed jolt. She needed a cute sperm donor and she got one. He should thank his lucky stars.

    Seriously, I always thought Nick was corny yet funny. I saw him speak at a banquet for high school students in MN and he is SUCH an intelligent guy! Very motivational, very business oriented. He instantly gained plenty of fans that night!

    Truth is Mariah hit the jackpot with Nick. Yes, she's a superstar, but Nick is one of the nicest guys you will ever meet. He is successful in his own right, as Chairman of a Viacom network, host of his NYC radio show, host of America's Got Talent, actor (Drumline was GREAT!) and philanthropist. He is the black Dick Clark in the making. Stop hating on him. Clearly he makes Mariah happy and is going to be an amazing father. Did you see all that press on him with what he did to help the hungry in America? Do you read Huffington Post? I cried when I read his blog post - look it up.You should read up on him before judging him, he's someone to watch

    Re: Onyez – You're totally spot on! Mariah and Nick seem to be really good for each other. And of course their relationship is ultimately grounded by their Love for the Lord–so they are unbreakable. Such a lovely couple indeed! They are blessed to have found one another. Btw, I can't wait to see the twins! Little roc & roe….I can only imagine how cute they are!

    painfully unfunny, and half of america's 3rd most annoying couple

    Perez - how can you support and work for someone like Nick Cannon? He is an ignorant homophobe. On his morning radio show (NYC, 92.3), he went off on Angelina and Brad for allowing Shiloh to dress the way she does. "Girls should dress like girls and boys should dress like boys." He said that sexuality is learned behavior and that parents should teach their children correctly. HOW CAN YOU SUPPORT THAT???



  16. 16

    NICK SHOULD HAVE BROKEN YOUR UGLY FACE FOR CALLING HIS WIFE "MOORIAH" & "FATRIAH"



  17. 17

    Re: Onyez – HE GOT ALL HIS SUCCESSFUL JOBS ONLY AFTER HANGING OUT WITH MARIAH

    Re: CourtneyM – ACTUALLY I'M GAY AS WELL,BUT I DO THINK CHILDREN SHOULDN'T WEAR NON-TRADITIONAL CLOTHES AT THEIR LITTLE AGE….

    Re: AshNrj – I half agree, but I think that in Shiloh's case, it is more that she wants to be like her dad. My real argument is the conversation that Nick had on his radio show and how appalled he was that this was going on. Plus, his twit of a co-host chiming in with her ridiculous comments and the callers with their poisonous comments. If he supports Perez and the gay community, he should not have gone about the conversation the way he did.

    His body language seems to indicate he doesn't want to be around you, Perez!
