Nick Cannon has a brief video interview on People’s website in which he talks about how he keeps the romance alive in his nearly two year marriage to Mariah Carey. It’s kind of cute and you can tell that he adores Mariah. These two get a lot of flack for the way that Nick seems to be at Mariah’s beck and call, but he seems to be more than happy with his role in the relationship. He told People that he loves to give Mariah notes and flowers and that they have a lot of fun together. He also seemed in awe of her celebrity and said “there’s no one more famous than Mariah.”
I think my wife is the most famous woman in the world. If you want to contest that, help me out. I don’t know anyone that’s known from eight to eighty. I’ve yet to meet someone more famous than Mariah Carey.
How do we keep the sparks flying? Lots of kerosene. [laughs] At the end of the day we’re two silly lovebirds that love to have fun. Hopeless romantics. I’m always writing cards, sending letters and flowers. That’s what love is about.
We like to live out the fairy tale romantic comedy type of story… We’re a romantic comedy with a very happy ending.

That’s sickly sweet but nice at the same time. Of course life with Mariah would be a fairy tale with a lot of high priced accessories and kowtowing. She’s a huge diva and she wants things just so. Nick seems to put his wife on a pedestal and she’s probably thrilled with that. I give them two more years, but I never would have predicted they would have lasted this long either.
