Nick Cannon wants to set the record straight. Well, sort of. Visiting Meredith Vieira’s talk show on Friday, Cannon tackled topics ranging from his famous Mariah Carey tattoo to how his twins are handling the split. But when it came to diving into the divorce details, Nick was more cautious. He wasn’t so careful, however, about accepting Meredith’s invitation to ride on her mechanical bull and play a game that she called “Incredi-Bull.”
Putting on a cowboy hat and a yee-haw attitude, Cannon climbed onto the kooky creature and rode around gamely. Watch what happened below.
He wasn’t quite so bold when asked for specifics about his disintegrated marriage with Mariah, pointed out Us Weekly.
“You know what I heard the other day?” Cannon mused. “I heard that there’s a family dispute over our eight dogs. It’s the Jack Russell puppy dispute.”
Although he joked about the puppies, Nick was firm about fatherhood and family. The twins, Moroccan and Monroe, are now 3-years-old. With two celebrities as parents, the children are used to having one parent away much of the time, insisted Cannon.
“It’s truly just staying focused on family and what’s right and getting through these times and just doing what’s right for the kids. They’re just happy. They love mommy, they love daddy.
We’ve always been people who are kinda on the go, coming and going, so their life hasn’t changed one bit. We spend holidays together, we do everything that we’re supposed to do together.”
Nick proudly showed off photos of the twins.
But one area was even more sensitive than his children. Whatever happened to that tattoo of Mariah Carey? Nick reluctantly admitted that the media caught him with the changing image only partly completed, noted Gossip Cop.
“I’m still getting it done. It’s like a whole work of art, my entire back and my arm and everything. I was leaving the gym going into the studio just having had that work done and they [the paparazzi] got me. It’s going to be a big reveal but it’s not finished it’s halfway done. It’s a lot of pain.”
Watch him advise Meredith on the type of tattoo that she should have below.
As for Mariah? As the Inquisitr recently reported, Carey has stepped up to champion an anti-bullying campaign. She was one of the first celebrities to announce her support for Spirit Day.
