Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon got married out of nowhere, casting doubt as to whether this union is destined for success. That's the subject of today's Face-Off. Comments are highly encouraged as The Hollywood Gossip staff debates ...
WILL THE MARIAH CAREY-NICK CANNON MARRIAGE LAST?
YES by mischalova
The 2002 movie Drumline stars Nick Cannon as a talented street drummer that, according to IMDB, "initially flounders in his new world, before realizing that it takes more than talent to reach the top."
That quote might as well sum up Nick Cannon's love life, as well.
Having floundered in the dating world with Kim Kardashian and Selita Ebanks in the past, it's now apparent Cannon desires more, seeking a soulmate that brings more than just large breasts and lingerie to the table.
Enter Mariah Carey, the most successful solo artist of all-time.
Years ago, she sang about a "hero [coming] along, with the strength to carry on," but none of her rumored flings fit that bill. Eminem, Marcus Schenkenberg and Derek Jeter were nothing but time and panty fillers until Mariah's true hero came along.
Now that he's arrived, let's let Carey explain why this marriage is meant to last: "We really feel we are soulmates. I never felt love like this was in the cards for me."
NO by Free Britney
Are you kidding me? Nick Cannon was engaged to Selita Ebanks, what, last week? Okay, so they split last October. But come on. Rebound, anyone?
This means Nick has been an item with Mariah Carey for a total of seven months at the absolute most, and probably not even quite that long.
Regardless, everyone knows in the first year of a relationship, all you can think about is your partner. But this is only true in certain situations.
Chiefly, up against the wall, over a dryer, in a public bathroom, etc. You get the idea. Double the time frame if said partner is as hot as Mariah Carey.
Our point? These two haven't even passed the blinded-by-sex threshold. Busy schedules, clashing egos and critical life decisions haven't come into play.
That, and look at their history - Nick cheated on Christina Millian, dated Kim Kardashian (!?) and after breaking up with Selita Ebanks, is 0-1 in engagements. Mariah Carey, meanwhile, is already 0-1 in marriages (to Tommy Mottola).
Stable track records? Not so much. I give it eight months.
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon make a hot couple - but for how long?!
