TV personality Nick Cannon is on the cover of Variety magazine with the headline “Owning It.” The 39-year-old entertainer talks about his career – from starring in Drumline to hosting America’s Got Talent , Wild ‘n Out and The Masked Singer – and his marriage to superstar singer Mariah Carey.
After six years of marriage, the power couple divorced in 2014. They co-parent their two children.
In the Variety interview, Cannon says of his relationship with Carey: “My ego outside the house was grand but in the house it was healthy. I was there to be in support of whatever she wanted to do,” he said.
“I mean, it’s Mariah Carey. How am I supposed to be? She’s one of the most talented women [on] this planet. I can’t hold a candle to that woman.”
