When Nick Cannon quit his post as America's Got Talent host a few weeks ago, it was initially seen as an admirable example of sticking to one's morals.
The star explained, via a lengthy Instagram post, that he felt as if NBC was treating him "like a piece of property," going on to write:
"There is no amount of money worth my dignity or my integrity."
Like we said: admirable, right?
But follow-up reports proceeded to quote a number of sources, some of which wondered whether Cannon was suffering from some kind of mental breakdown.
They pointed to Cannon's rant against NBC as evidence of his instability, along with his recent dedication to "spirituality" and multiple social media posts in which Cannon refers to "depression" and insanity.
Aware of this chatter, Cannon has filmed a video of himself in which he states early on:
“People think I’m crazy."
He then goes on sort of validate this possibility.
“They had reports that I have mental issues. Tell us some shitt we don’t know! Nigga, a I was dressing in drag at 17,” he says below, adding:
“I been crazy! They call me crazy ’cause I turned down millions, and millions, and millions … of dollars. I am moving on to bigger and better things, like my mixtape.”
Later on, Cannon compares himself to Albert Einstein, Buddha, Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr.
Cannon also makes mentions of:
- Donald Trump’s State of the Union address.
- The ongoing feud between Nicki Minaj and Remy Ma.
- A puppet of Minaj, which Cannon gropes and fondles.
By the end of the footage, Cannon has exposed himself in more ways than one and even suggested he should "f-ck Miley Cyrus."
You need to watch this entire thing. And you need to then grow a bit concerned over Cannon's mental state...
