Nick Cannon has made a lot of news in the past few months for fathering several children (including his ex-wife doesn’t seem to feel much need have a strong relationship with) by several different women at the same time. And, he’s clearly been in (even short-lived) relationships with others since break up with his ex-wifesuperstar singer Mariah Carey, in 2014. But, Cannon has now shared her lingering feelings for her ex in a new song, and Carey has (apparently) responded by posting a selfie with her boyfriend.
What did Nick Cannon say about his feelings for Mariah Carey?
I really don’t think anyone could have seen that coming, especially with Nick Cannon’s recent track record of mainstreaming women. While he has said he was single for about two months at the end of last year, he still yet another baby on the way (and had to sorry for this ad), even though he seems to have spent the last eight years dreaming of Mariah Carey.
The day before Valentine’s Day, Cannon released a new single, titled “Alone”, to his Youtube page. The song’s artwork is a box of chocolates with the top broken in the middle to reveal the candy inside, and while it doesn’t directly mention Carey, it did make a point to sample her song, “Love Takes Time.” , which was on his debut album. And, Cannon details how he “has nothing but love for you” in the song’s first line, later noting that “I keep my distance, stay in my lane”, because “I know you have a man, it’s a little too late.
Basically, it sounds like Cannon would love to get back together with the mother of his oldest children, 10-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe, but maintains that “I’m not trying to screw it up for you,” saying regarding her relationship with her boyfriend, Bryan Tanaka.
Mariah Carey appears to have responded by posting a selfie with her boyfriend, Bryan Tanaka
If you look over Carey instagramShe’s not one to post constant photos of herself with Bryan Tanaka or her boyfriend all alone, with most of her recent posts being of her, her kids, or tributes to friends. deceased. Their romance is mostly kept private, so it was a bit of a surprise to see her step in with a Valentine’s Day photo of the duo. Looked!
Easy and airy, right? The couple (who started dating more than five years ago) smile softly for the camera, and Carey notes in her caption that their “Valentine’s Day Marathon” has continued, seemingly for an entire day. Considering the two most recent snaps of Tanaka we got on Carey’s social media are of him dressed as Dracula (full paint and all) for family viewing of Hotel Transylvania: Transformania, and the romantic couple boarding a (fully masked) plane before heading off on vacation, the timing for such a clear and loving portrayal of Carey and Tanaka seems to have at least a little to do with Cannon’s song.
As noted, however, it has been just Valentine’s Day, which means even though Mariah Carey’s photo can being seen as a sort of response to Nick Cannon’s song lyrics for her, her and Bryan Tanaka’s post could also (just) be a way for her to show the world that she’s totally content with the relationship they’ve been dating. she has right now, no matter what Cannon still feels or doesn’t feel for her.
