Mariah Carey married?

I did not want to believe it - but it's true! Mariah Carey, the diva who has the most No.1 hits for a female singer in USA, was married last week. This was confirmed today by Oprah Winfrey and a number of other sources online.

But the funny part is, Mariah is married to a man 11 years her junior. I have to admit I have never heard of her new husband who goes by the name Nick Cannon. He's 27 and she's 38. Curiosity got the better of me and I googled Nick Cannon's name. Lo and behold, I learnt a few things about this man, who by the way is black, rather good looking, is an actor and rap artist. Surprising I have never heard of him before, but I guess he'll be much more famous from now on as Mr Carey. Haha! Well, Nick Carey sounds better than Mariah Cannon, no?

I have always idolised Mariah Carey. I bought all her albums since she started way back in the 90's. Her music and voice is simply superb, and even now she has gone deeply into hip-hop music, I have not stopped buying her albums! Her latest album, E=mc2 debuted on top of the Billboard chart, and I really enjoy all the songs in the album. I know a lot of people prefer Mariah during her younger years as those were the times she belt out huge beautiful ballads. I love those ballads too! But I guess with time, things change. Mariah got fatter and started singing with a lot of black rappers. That puts a lot of people off! But she preservered, and managed to get new fans. Look at her now, all slim and fit and successful.

Of course to top it all, she got married. Not a big deal maybe to many people. But to me, it's a big deal. How ironic she's married to a man 11 years younger when her first husband, Mr Tommy Mottola is 20 years her senior! She's 24 and Tommy's 44 when they got married. Has she gone to the other extreme?

I do hope Mariah's new marriage is for real and will last. It's really hard to say seeing so many Hollywood stars getting divorced just after a few months of marriage. But Mariah only met Nick for about a month during their video shoot of her latest single, "Bye Bye", so it's way too fast for marriage, don't you think?

Well, in actual fact, I don't think I should bother too much about her private life. As long as she still comes out with good albums, I'll be fine. So I guess I will just have to wish Mariah and Nick the best!

    Nick Cannon was a Nickelodeon kid.

    The guy "downgraded" lah, he was engaged to Victoria's Secret model Selita Ebanks; and now he's Mr Mariah Carey.

    No one else would put them together.
