Nick Cannon Kicks Up ‘Whiteface’ Argument

WHEN anyone switches up the colour of their skin, an argument ensues. Over the years, there have been hundreds of white actors doing ‘Blackface’ and until relatively recently, the Black & White Minstrel Show was something broadcasters would put on national television, never once thinking that it would offend actual black people.

Since then, everything got confusing for people. In Fonejacker, Kayvan Novak – who isn’t white – indulged in, well, ‘Everythingface’, adopting rubber masks to pull his pranks. Of course, it doesn’t matter what colour you are, you can still be racist, but no-one could agree whether or not Novak’s show was acceptable. Most didn’t even think about it.

After that, ‘White Chicks’ got a cinematic release, featuring two black male actors done up to be white women. Where do you even start with that? For the most part, the response was ‘what a terrible, terrible film’, so everything paled into insignificance. Pun intended.

Now, we’ve got Mariah Carey’s husband (who herself, is a whole essay on skin colour, ‘whitened’ by record companies for years) Nick Cannon, has appeared doing ‘Whiteface’.

Mariah Carey makes soup and becomes an instant hero!

JUST over a week after posting one of the most unintentionally funny photos online, and of course, being hospitalised for “mild kidney failure”, Mariah Carey’s husband, Nick Cannon, stepped out into the limelight for the first time and praised her for being a “hero” during his ‘ordeal’.

Cannon said, without any trace of irony:

“When times are hard, you guys don’t see her at 3 o’clock in the morning, getting up in the middle of the night, fixing me soup when my kidneys ain’t acting right. Mariah Carey does that.”

Get housemaid to open tin. Pour into pan. Heat up. Serve. Become hero.

Mariah Carey hogs illness limelight of ailing husband Nick Cannon

THE shock of Mariah Carey being seen in hospital was one thing, but what really surprised us was that she was so willing to bask in the reflected glory of her ailing husband, TV presenter Nick Cannon. That’s right, while Nick lay there looking half dead in his woollen hat (nope, no idea either), Mariah sidled up to him on the bed for a quick photo to share with twitter.

And according to Mariah, he’s suffered kidney failure.

She tweeted: ‘Please pray for Nick as he’s fighting to recover from a mild kidney failure.’

Mariah Carey Is Stupid Because She Thinks Her Unborn Twins Have Different Personalities

IT must be slowly dawning on Mariah Carey that she’s not the only person on Earth who has ever had a baby. As each new stretch mark appears on her drum-taut stomach and each haemorrhoid pings like popcorn from her anus, her sheer will to make this whole pointless event special grows and grows.

Fact is, her new children are just another pair of things to occupy some vital space on our failing planet. They’re guaranteed to grow-up to be disappointing adults, drunk on their own sense of self worth and ultimately jaded at the prospect that they’re just things that live to ultimately die without ever achieving anything remotely great in their lives.
