The America's Got Talent host
revealed to Dujour magazine
that he "highly doubts" that he'll walk down the aisle for a second time. "I feel like marriage isn't for everyone," Cannon explained. "A friend of mine put it the funniest way. He said, ‘If you heard that there was a 50/50 chance of living or dying when you jump out of a plane, you probably wouldn't go skydiving.'"
The 35-year-old entertainer was married to Carey from 2008 to 2015, and while he's grateful for their children, Monroe and Moroccan, the idea of marriage isn't what it used to be for him. "There's like a 50/50 chance of a marriage working," he continued. "If it didn't work out for you the first time, and you still survived it, you probably shouldn't do it again."
Cannon says he's enjoying his freedom. "I never ever in my life want to have to -- how do I say this the right way -- not to say that I was bogged down [in my marriage], because I wasn't by any means, but I like being able to make my own decisions and come and go as I please," he admitted.
This all to say that Cannon and Carey might be the friendliest exes ever
! "You can still be a diva and be humble. Mariah is a perfect example of that," he gushed over his ex.
This past year, Carey released her "Infinity" track
and had many fans wondering if she was singing about her marriage to Cannon. The lyrics in question include biting lines such as, "Why you mad/Talkin' 'bout you're mad/Could it be that you just lost the best you've ever had?" And, "Why you tryin' to play like you're so grown?/Everything you own boy you still owe."
"I leave that open for the fans to interpret," the 45-year-old singer told ET. "People have to be able to interpret it for their own selves."
