EXCLUSIVE: Nick Cannon Talks Hottest Woman In His Life and Teaching His Daughter About Beauty
By Leena Tailor
The Maxim Hot 100 party celebrated some of the world’s most beautiful women, but Nick Cannon was coy about the sexiest lady in his own life during the soiree at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles on Saturday.
The 35-year-old TV personality has recently been linked to TLC’s Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, but he hesitated before playing it safe when asked who he currently considers his number one hottie.

“I’m going to go with the number one lady tonight -- Stella!’’ Cannon told ET, referring to model Stella Maxwell, who topped the magazine’s annual Hot 100 list. “That’s who I’m going to go with.”
While there was no shortage of stunning women at the star-studded party, the America’s Got Talent host added that he believes true beauty stems from inner confidence.
In fact, he hopes to instill those values in his 5-year-old daughter, Monroe, as she gets older, when he'll try to explain to her what's "hot."
“It’s just about self-esteem,” he said. “It’s about understanding who you are and your own culture.”
Cannon, who shares Monroe and her twin brother, Moroccan, with ex-wife Mariah Carey, played an opening DJ set for Iggy Azalea at the event, where he was joined by Amber Rose, Russell Simmons, Nicole Murphy, Too Short and Courtney Sixx.
