In today’s new issue of People magazine, Nick Cannon explains how he met, fell in love and married Mariah Carey – all within the span of one month. It all started in late March when Carey cast him as her love interest in the video for her new single, “Bye Bye.” “From the first time we sat down to discuss the video at the Beverly Hills Hotel, we connected,” Cannon said in the May 19 issue, which features exclusive photos from the wedding. “We had so much in common spiritually, and we laugh at the same things. I didn’t have to put on my Mac Daddy suave mode. I was able to be myself with her. We are both eternally 12 years old.” They began showing up at various events together, sparking talk that a romance may be afoot. Carey kicked the rumors into high gear at the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of her movie “Tennessee,” where she sported a huge diamond on her left ring finger. Next thing you know, the 38-year-old singer and the 27-year-old actor were exchanging vows on April 30 at Carey’s Bahamian estate. Were Carey’s friends surprised? “Some were, but some weren’t,” she told People. “One thing (few people) knew was we got tattoos a few weeks earlier. So anyone who saw my (Mrs. Cannon) tattoo wasn’t surprised.” Oprah Winfrey told her audience Wednesday that she saw the “Mrs. Cannon” tattoo when Carey appeared on her show about a week before the wedding, but thought nothing of it. Cannon said, “To me rings are special and exciting, but tattoos mean more than anything. They’re forever and ever. They professed our love.” According to People, a dozen guests attended their sunset wedding, where guests feasted on Maine lobster and Dom Perignon champagne. The bride wore a gown by Nile Cmylo that showed off her curves and faded from off-white to pale pink. “My pastor Clarence Keaton flew in from New York,” Carey said. “The whole wedding was really beautiful and sweet. Being there with loved ones under the sky … it was a spiritual moment.”


Ne-Yo will host a Mother’s Day brunch for 50 single and foster mothers from the metro Atlanta area Sunday to raise awareness of the need to drastically reform the U.S. foster care system.
“They need something special,” the 28-year-old singer/songwriter told the Associated Press. “So with the success I’ve been given, through the blessings I have, how could I not use it for good? This is a way to help people who deserve it — for both the mothers and children.”
While the invited mothers enjoy a performance from Ne-Yo, licensed child care workers are expected to provide activities for children between the ages of 1 and 10 in rooms separate from the event.


Morgan Freeman, 70, is looking to stretch his seasoned acting muscles into fresh territory with his new role in Broadway’s “The Country Girl,” a production of Clifford Odets’ 1950 drama, directed by Mike Nichols. After decades of playing such characters as the all-knowing cop, the principal with a heart of gold, the voice-of-reason sidekick and the ultra-cool president, the Academy Award-winner travels to the other end of the spectrum in “The Country Girl” to play an insecure man described as a “bleary bum,” reports the AP. Freeman plays Frank Elgin, a stage actor long past his prime who is battling both insecurity and an alcohol problem. When a juicy part in a Broadway-bound play comes along, a battle of sorts breaks out between his long-suffering wife (Francis McDormand) and a producer (Peter Gallagher) banking that Elgin will reclaim his acting chops. Freeman, who has twice played God on film, hopes the role will remind fans that he can also play characters with a less than noble core. “There’s a finite number of characters who are like that before you start repeating yourself ad nauseam. I think that’s the bigger danger than being Mr. Gravitas,” he says. You look at your last work and say, ‘That’s four characters in a row that said, did, thought, acted the same. They’re going to find me out any minute now.'”
