Nick Cannon on America's Got Talent (AGT) got kissing lessons from an official coach. The AGT host, recently in the media for his dramatic split from Mariah Carey, apparently served as the ideal client for the kissing expert, reported the Denver Post.
A kiss isn't just a kiss when it's between Nick and a "passion and intimacy expert." Cannon received no guidance from the America's Got Talent judges when it came to the AGT audition for kissing specialist Joanna Kennedy.To audition her skills as an intimacy expert, Joanna used Nick and a plastic doll as her props. And at 47, Kennedy made it clear that she could offer Cannon some kissing guidance.
Joanna's company is called "Happiness, Love, and Pleasure." At 47, she's focused on "tantric sacred sexuality consciousness" after becoming an electrical engineer and a certified tantric educator.
"Life experience absolutely prompted me on this journey," explained Kennedy.
After getting educated in Hawaii at the Source School of Tantra, earning a BA from the University of Michigan, followed by an MBA from the University of Houston, Joanna decided that Boulder was the ideal location for her work, although she resides in Loveland.
"I've taught a few thousand people over the years," revealed the kissing coach.When Joanna received word that AGT wanted her to audition, she had no hesitation about possibly being mocked on the show.
"Did I know it's a reality show? Absolutely. Did I know it's a show that impacts millions of viewers? Abosolutely. Are men and women hungry for love and intimacy? Nobody teaches this stuff! My life's work is to spread this word, and have some fun at the same time."As for those who imply that despite her expertise, kissing has been around for centuries without coaching, Kennedy isn't offended.
"Yes, and some of the judges say that, too," admitted Joanna.
And while Howard Stern was skeptical, Kennedy was delighted to reveal her assessment of Nick's skills. Cannon, known for his brave participation on various AGT auditions, doesn't really need significant help with kissing, said Joanna.
"Nick is definitely a confident kisser."As for Mariah? Carey has been busy canoodling on Capri recently with her billionaire boyfriend, James Packer, as the Inquisitr reported.
A media businessman, Packer is 47. He and his ex-wife, Erica Baxter, have three small children, while Mariah and Nick have a pair of 3-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe.While not neglecting her romance, Mariah recently delighted little Monroe by taking her daughter on a helicopter ride, reported the Daily Mail.
"In a chopper over Jerusalem. #beautifulmomements #latergram," wrote Carey on Instagram.
Mariah and James recently visited Israel for a "pre-engagement spiritual meeting," and they celebrated Independence Day in Las Vegas.
