How Mariah Carey Reacted to Nick Cannon’s Tribute Song “Alone”

E! News: What are the life experiences you drew from for this project?

Nick Cannon: Everything. I mean, this my entire adult life. I’ve had so much heartbreak. I’ve been a part of so many situations where I’ve been the one that’s hurt. I feel like this gives people a real authentic look into who I am—from the vulnerable side to the egotistical sides. It is like confessions of a broken soul with someone who yearns for love, who wants to figure it out but hasn’t gotten it right.

E!: What are you hoping your fans take away from this mixtape? 

NC: It’s the art. We haven’t had this type of honesty and vulnerability. We get the opportunity to really emote. I feel like a lot of times people see so many different sides of me, but they never really get to know the true me and how I approach something. If they get to see the actual side that gets to emote through this project, that’s my goal.

E!: You worked with so many amazing people on this mixtape. What was it like collabing with Brandy and what was her best advice?

NC: You hear the lyrics in the song. She was like “Yo, you have got to grow up, we are grown now.” I am doing the same thing I was doing when we were teenagers. But being under the tutelage of one of the greatest voices ever, I was honored. Like, “Wow, this is this is the GOAT and she’s showing me how to do it.” So, that was a lot of fun.

E!: You reference a lot of the women in your life on this mixtape. What do they think about it?

NC: They know me and they are like, “Oh, here he goes again.” Everybody’s so supportive and so loving, especially when it comes to art. I’m not intentionally trying to be a messy individual or anything, but one has to speak their truth and one has to be authentic.

Mindy Kaling Shuts Down Any “Freak Out” Over South Asian Velma

Mindy Kaling has no time for the haters.

When the Never Have I Ever creator shared a look at the Scooby-Doo animated spinoff Velma during a Warner Bros Discovery Upfront presentation on May 18, she was blunt about her support for making the title character South Asian, Deadline reported. 

Mindy, who voices Velma, said, “Hopefully you noticed my Velma is South Asian. If people freak out about that, I don’t care.”

She went on to say that if a dog can solve crime, Velma “can be brown,” per Deadline.

Mindy is also the executive producer of the HBO Max series that uncovers the origin story of Velma Dinkley. The streamer announced the series in February 2021 and was met with backlash online as some fans saw her character as feeding into the South Asian brainiac stereotype, according to Deadline.

In July 2021, Mindy addressed the comments on Late Night with Seth Meyerssaying, “When it was announced that I was going to do the voice of Velma, people were very supportive and happy on Twitter. And so, I felt great because these are really intense fans, you know—cartoon, comic book fans, those are huge fans. And especially [for] a legacy show like this.”

Amber’s former pal also claimed that Johnny would label his fans “remoras” and would also take aim at his own family.

In his video statement, Mr Wright went on: “He would insult his fans, he called them — I remember, he called them remoras, which is a type of suckerfish that attaches itself to the hull of a ship and puts a hole in it and then sinks it.

“He would rail against his mother, his sister – sisters. Pretty much anyone he felt had crossed him or would cross him. He became very nasty.”

The cross-examination of Amber began on Monday, with Johnny’s lawyer, Camille Vasquez, questioning the actress.
