Nick Cannon almost got into hot water after flirting with a female on his MTV sketch comedy show “Wild n Out.” It was all playful fun, however, as the comedian was participating in a game called “Let Me Holla.” The goal was to attract the female’s attention in a comical way.
As Cannon approached the young woman, saying, “What’s happening baby girl,” he was immediately surprised when his wife, Mariah Carey, surprised him onstage, much to the delight of the audience. Showing that after giving birth to two children, Carey still has a body to compete with women half her age, the 43-year-old diva wore a black crop top, black jeans and a black jacket.
Walking up to her husband, Carey did not look entertained, telling the TV host twice, “I will shut all this s---t down, OK?” as she mockingly shoved him away. Cannon quickly went to a commercial break as he brought Carey backstage. He later went back on stage, jokingly saying, “We gotta hurry this s—t up before all my stuff be out on the front lawn.”
The last time Carey was mentioned in the same sentence as “Wild n Out,” it was for different reasons, after Cannon dissed Beyonce on his show. On the sketch comedy show, Mariah Carey’s recent lip-synching controversy was brought up. It was speculated that the 43-year-old diva lip-synched her latest hit song “Beautiful” when performing at the 2013 BET Awards June 30, alongside singer Miguel and rapper Young Jeezy. She was also accused on Twitter of lip-synching during a performance on "American Idol" earlier this year.
Cannon, Carey’s husband, jokingly said, "You gonna come out with the microphone singing live, hitting high notes. .... You could've just lip-synch that s--t like Beyoncé did at the inauguration!" Beyonce fans were not pleased with the 32-year-old actor’s comment, though Beyonce, 31, later admitted to lip-synching at the presidential inauguration.
Still, people immediately took to Twitter to defend Beyonce, primarily by making fun of Cannon, Carey, and their twins, Monroe and Moroccan.
