Mrs. Cannon Speaks

The newly christened Mrs. Nick Cannon (the artist formerly known as Mariah Carey) paid a little visit to the Ellen DeGeneres Show yesterday in her first on-camera interview since she was married to the aforementioned Nick Cannon in a secret Caribbean wedding a few weeks ago. In her interview, Mariah gave some specifics about her secret wedding (including the miniscule guest list), talked about the proposal (Nick proposed to her, she would never deign to propose to anyone) and revealed that the couple may remarry every single year:

For Nick Cannon, one trip down the aisle just wasn't enough! "His plan is to have one [wedding] every year," newlywed Mariah Carey told Ellen DeGeneres in an interview that will air Tuesday. Carey wouldn't mind another wedding either. "Instead of trying to be like, 'You're invited, but shhh, don't tell anybody,' we're just going to have another one [wedding] next year," Carey said. Their small nuptials on April 30 were mostly attended by people "to do my hair and help me with the dress," Carey revealed. "And then, three of my friends and he had three people with him. It wasn't a lot of people taking pictures." Carey says that Cannon proposed to her. "I would never propose to someone…" she explained. As for the bling? "We designed each other's rings," Carey said ... Next up for the couple? Kids! "I always said ... if I found the right person who I felt would be on the same page as me in term of raising kids and having the same belief system, [we'd have kids]," Carey said. "I've always had a weird thing about it because my parents divorced when I was three and I didn't have many examples of what was the 'norm,'" she adds. (Yesterday, Reuben Cannon told Usmagazine.com that his half brother Nick "definitely wants kids.")

Geeze, the way Mariah is talking, you'd think that they actually fell madly in love in just 6 weeks and may actually stay together long enough to have yearly weddings. I don't know that I'm entirely convinced of that (something about the quickiness just doesn't scream long-term commitment to me) but if that's her story, well, I guess we'll have to see. Mariah's interview on Ellen airs today and depending on where you are in the country either the ep has already aired or will air later on in the afternoon. BUT, you can watch Part 1 of her interview online HERE, Part 2 HERE and Part 3 HERE. [Source]

After Mimi was done gabbing with Ellen, she made her way (sans hubby Nick) to Fred Segal for a little shopping jaunt ...

... before finally meeting up with her new husband for dinner at the Japanese eatery Gyu-Kaku:


You know, for such a crazily happy couple, Mimi and Nick sure do spend a lot of time apart. I'd imagine that a couple who *had* to be married only 6 weeks after they started dating would be absolutely inseparable for weeks after their nuptials ... but all these separate cars and individual excursions ... HMMMM. In any event, I wish the happy couple well. It remains to be seen if their love will stand the test of time but it appears at least that they are giving it a good go ... well, that's the story they're telling right now.
