Nick Cannon Whiteface Photo Racist? Double Standards and Stereotyping

We are just dumbfounded over this whole Nick Cannon whiteface photo. Honestly, haven’t we had enough examples yet why it STILL isn’t cool to do blackface or whiteface, even if you’re a famous celebrity?

Nick Cannon whiteface

Anyone remember former Dancing With the Stars pro Juliane Hough and the outraged reaction to her Orange is the New Black costume for Halloween? When she dressed up like Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren and actually went so far as to darken her skin and go blackface for it?

Mariah names her twins

Oh, this is as predictably wacky as everyone expected – Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have named their new twin babies, and the names are leaving people scratching their heads.  They’ve named the girl Monroe, which I suppose isn’t all that bad, since Mariah has long been known to admire Marilyn Monroe, and Monroe Cannon does have a bit of a quirky ring to it.

But the boy… his name is Moroccan.  Moroccan Cannon.  Go ahead, I’ll wait while you say it out loud and let it sink in.  So far there’s been no explanation as to what this name is about – it has only been said that his middle name is Scott, which is not only Nick’s middle name, but also his grandmother’s middle name.  Let’s hope he ends up using his middle name, because Scott Cannon sounds pretty good to me.

Nick Cannon talks about Mariah’s cravings

Mariah Carey is pregnant with twins, reportedly a boy and a girl, and her appetite has grown to match her double-baby bump.  Husband Nick Cannon spilled the beans (and rice and collard greens) about what his wife has been craving during her pregnancy, and details about her daily routine.

According to Nick, Mariah loves Kellogg’s Crunchy Nut cereal, and keeps a steady supply in the house for when she gets hungry.  She’s also been in a cooking mood, making elaborate southern dishes every night including smothered pork chops, collard greens, and pecan pie.  Nick claims that Mariah’s not actually eating all that food, though – jut making it and smelling it satisfies her cravings.

Mariah Carey pregnant with twins

Mariah Carey is not only spawning, but there will be two mini-Mariahs to contend with soon.  Mariah’s husband, Nick Cannon, announced on the radio that they’re actually expecting twins, but he stopped short of revealing the sex of the twins.

Nick said that they had delayed reporting the pregnancy and the expectation of twins because they were trying to keep things low key after Mariah suffered a miscarriage back in 2008.  Nonetheless, Nick says that the twins are in perfect health, and that the doctors expect the pregnancy to continue without any problems.  Mariah is due sometime in the spring, though the exact date is still a secret.

Mariah Carey Pregnant for Real This Time?

If all the rumors about Mariah Carey being pregnant over the years had been true, she’d have popped out a dozen kids by now. So until we have official word from Carey and husband Nick Cannon that the diva is indeed knocked up, we’re taking this latest pregnancy rumor with a hefty grain of salt.

Mariah Carey sent the baby rumor mill into full speed again last week when her rep announced she would be dropping out of Tyler Perry‘s new film. “She is not doing the movie because her doctor advised her not to,” Carey’s rep told Us Weekly.

Now a source allegedly close to Carey and Cannon has reportedly told the tabloid the pop diva is expecting – for real this time. “Mariah’s in the first stages of pregnancy,” the source claims. is also claiming Mariah Carey is really pregnant this time, despite any official confirmation from the couple or their reps. “They’re both very excited and very happy,” Radar Online claims a pal of the couple said. “Mariah and Nick want to keep the pregnancy quiet as long as they can.”

Mariah Carey rep Cindi Berger did not deny the pregnancy rumors when asked, but refused to comment on the story, saying only that she is “not at liberty to discuss Mariah’s personal life at this time.”

Is Mariah Carey Finally Pregnant?

Now that Mariah Carey has bagged her baby husband Nick Cannon, she’s made it clear she wants a REAL baby. Big time. The NY Post says that spies in LA saw her coming out of a well-known obstetrician’s office on North Crescent Boulevard,

“clutching what looked like a sonogram and being greeted by her entourage with cheers. She was ebullient.”

Moreover, it was reportedly the same type of paper that Minnie Driver was holding when she found out she was pregnant at the same doctor’s office. Natch, Mariah’s rep said, “As far as I’m told it’s not true.” Which means she is OUT of the loop. Mariah wasn’t too successful in convincing the press to pay for a BIG wedding to Nick after their quickie wedding, so maybe she’ll have better luck peddling baby pics. Bumpwatch on! If Mariah IS gonna give birth, it needs to be here…in the Hello Kitty Maternity Hospital. I kid you not.

The Tabs Won’t Pick Up Mariah’s Tab

Man, this recession sucks hard! So hard that Mariah Carey isn’t gonna get to have her est. $2 million dollar 2nd wedding (to Nick Cannon). Why? She wants the tabs to pay for it! Nobody’s lining up. Mimi in diamonds and rainbows and unicorns and butterflies and crystal and a whole lotta other shizz is a big YAWN.

Nick sure can’t pay for a $2 million dollar re-wedding! He thought he was gettin’ off good with the quickie Bahamas hitchin’ and the carnival! Welcome to Mimi’s world, Nick. You have married one HIGH-maintenance diva. She’s not gonna pay for her OWN wedding when the media’s shoved so much cash up her booty before! Maybe if it weren’t your 10th wedding, Mariah, the pics would bring some dough. But it’s hard out there for the papz, and they’re saving the money for something a little more interesting. Like pretty much anything else.

Just keep on shopping, y’all. At least they’ll TAKE your picture.
