Mariah Carey's husband Nick Cannon has admitted that his wife is a diva – especially when it comes to changing nappies. Speaking on American talk show Anderson Live, Nick joked that his wife lives up to her reputation as she frquently exits the room when it comes to baby changing.
The 32-year-old rapper said: "I mean we all do it but, for some reason, I get that duty a little bit more. I am not scared of it. I go in, I put the gloves on. Real men change diapers!". Despite taking a lead role in the changing activities, Nick has revelead that twins Moroccan and Monroe are already showcasing diva behaviour in the Cannon household. "It's a good time! Right now, the kids run the house. We are just running and chasing after them and then my wife is being the diva that she is. I am trying to keep up with them." the star revealed.
As well as speaking about his life at home, Nick was keen to discuss how proud he was of his wife's American Idol role. Joined by country star Keith Urban, rapper Nicki Minaj and show veteran Randy Jackson on the panel, the show has not been without drama. A controversial feud between Mariah and Nicki hit the headlines, leading to Fleetwoof Mac's Stevie Nicks passing comment in defense of the Touch My Body singer. Nick, however, said the producers amplified a minor tiff.
"I think it was what it was. A lot of theatrics and stuff. I guess I was a little disappointed in the producers because that's not what American Idol is about. I felt like they fed off of it a little bit. You know, people are always going to have disagreements and stuff," the comedian said before adding: "My wife is the classiest and strongest woman I've met, so she's handling it the way she's supposed to handle it."
Between motherhood and her career, Mariah has a hectic schedule to keep in check. As well as wowing the crowds as a judge, the songstress will be performing at New York's Rockerfeller Centre as part of the city's Treelighting event, the US version of the Oxford Street light switch on, which showcased Robbie Williams' talents this year.
