Entertainer Nick Cannon just broke his “silence” on the situation concerning Mariah Carey, his wife–or ex-wife. Nick Cannon loves “@MariahCarey and that will never change!!!” (Social media experts agree that one cannot love a person with an @ in front of them–that’s just an avatar Nick! That’s Twitter Mariah! Not real Mariah. Plus you’re jumping into her feed and it’s not right!) More than 1,000 people favorited this tweet about love and nearly 900 have retweeted it. (Carey was not one of them.) Nick Cannon broke his social media silence by issuing 19 straight tweets, in fact, a sort of op-ed essay on the perils of love in a celebrity culture. One of them said “I NEVER have, nor will I make a statement regarding my marriage.”
Nick Cannon calls the media “evil bottom dwellers” and says it “infuriates” him to “hear people slander @MariahCarey.” If the media want to portray Nick Cannon as the “Bad guy” that’s fine, he writes. And in a final blow near the end: “Don’t worry about my life, worry about why you’re worried about my life!” This one was retweeted more than all the others–people seem not to be worried about worrying about Nick Cannon. Leave the man alone, he says. Nick Cannon has 4.87 million followers on Twitter. His profile says “If you take anything I say on Twitter seriously, you have too much time on your hands.” Got that, @MariahCarey?
