Nick Cannon Praises Ex Mariah Carey, Calls Her 'The Queen'
By Jackie Willis
It looks like Mariah Carey's ex, Nick Cannon, is still her biggest fan!
Throwing his support behind the mother of their twins, the 34-year-old America's Got Talent host posted this image on Instagram, writing: "#1ToInfinity album in stores May 6th. #TheQueen #NoHate #HardestWorkingWomanIKnow."
While we certainly love seeing those hashtag compliments, there was one mistake in his caption! Mariah's album doesn't actually come out until May 18. Her Las Vegas show opens May 6 at Caesar Palace.
While many have claimed Carey's new song "Infinity" is taking a dig at Cannon, the diva told ET that's not necessarily the case. "I leave that open for the fans to interpret," the 45-year-old diva said on Monday while promoting her upcoming Las Vegas show. "People have to be able to interpret it for their own selves."
Further explaining the lyrics, she added, "Personally, this song is about loving yourself. You have to love yourself first… If you don't love yourself, and you're not in a good place with you, then how can you love or do anything else to the fullest?"
The lyrics in question include: "Why you mad?/Talking about you're mad?/ Could it be that you just lost the best you ever had? ... Name hold weight like kilos/ Boy you actin' so corny like Fritos/ Wouldn't have none of that without me, though."
Lyrics aside, Cannon has insisted that he and Carey respect one another. "I will never say anything negative about @MariahCarey," he tweeted this past December. "We are forever a family rooted in love."
