Nick Cannon: Mariah Carey 'Thinks My Music is a Big Joke,' 'Real Husbands of Hollywood' Star Teases [EXCLUSIVE]
Real Husbands of Hollywood star Nick Cannon relayed details of his upcoming album on Sunday and also revealed what his wife, Mariah Carey, thinks of his music as she prepares to release her own record.
Both singers have new albums coming out later in 2013. Carey is set to release The Art of Letting Go, the follow-up to 2009's Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel. The new record as supposed to drop on July 23, but the singer tweeted in June "I got so immersed in the creative process that I just don't feel I would be doing it justice to release it on 7/23." A new release date has not been revealed.
Cannon has yet to announce a release date for his new album, titled White People Party Music. He releases its lead single, Me Sexy, in July.
He told Enstars at the InTouch Weekly Icons & Idols after-party for the VMAs that Carey is in the studio "getting her album finished" and he called it an "incredible" record. Cannon added that he and his wife do not give each other advice about their albums, but that Carey has strong feelings against his music.
"She thinks my music is a big joke," he said, before adding with laughs, "but so do I so it doesn't matter."
He then explained the difference between their different sounds and in the process praised his wife's talents.
"My music is silly, you know what I mean, she makes anthems that changes people's lives," he continued. "I make songs about shaking ya ass. My album is called White People Party Music so that's how I would describe it. Fist-pumping-good-time-have-a-blast-type of music."
Real Husbands of Hollywood season 2 airs in October. The reality show stars Cannon, Kevin Hart, Boris Kodjoe, Duane Martin, Robin Thicke and J.B. Smoove.
