Mrs. Cannon Does Vibe Magazine

The newly married Mariah Carey is showing off her new beach-ready bikini bod on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Vibe magazine. Nick Cannon really hit the jackpot by getting Mimi to walk down the aisle with him, that's for sure (btw, I'm still having a hard time accepting the fact that Mariah and Nick are married). Here are a few of Mimi's Vibe photos and a portion of the Editor's Letter that attempts to lavish praise upon the record-breaking chanteuse:

People forget, because Mariah is so pretty and so about hair and boobs and antics, that she is a songwriter who will go down in history as one of the best, one of the most prolific, and one of the most successful. The sales and radio records she's breaking are mammoth, and crucial too—because with every one she topples, it's clearer that Miss Carey is the true People's Choice. She writes and sings music that people sing to themselves, music that we move our bodies to. She is redefining—in these complicated cultural times, times in which niches are nich-ier than ever, times in which even the sale of creative content is in question—what it is to be popular (believed, embraced, or perpetuated by ordinary people). She's buttah fly, for sure.

Man, oh, man ... these photos are hot. Surely there will be folks out there who will claim that Mariah has been Photoshopped to death in these photos but I tend to think that this is really what her hot bod looks like. She really looks amazing. [Source]

Additionally, here is our first look at the new Bahaman home that Mariah Carey just purchased on Windermere Island where she married actor Nick Cannon last week:

It's a really phat pad ... my guess is that Mimi and Nick will be staying hidden for for a while, until they are ready to reemerge back into the world as happy newlyweds.
