Media mogul Nick Cannon is currently on tour promoting his new book of children's poetry, Aliens Ate My Homework, in stores now.
This despite the fact that Cannon, 34, is living the life of a bachelor after splitting with singer Mariah Carey in 2014.
Judging from his Instagram page Nick hasn't seen his twins, Moroccan and Monroe, in months.
What Nick and other black men fail to understand is their children are like sponges; they learn from their environment. If a strong, black father figure is missing from that environment, only females are left to influence their sons' growth and development.
And we all know what happens when women wield their feminine influence over boys.
The following are excerpts from Nick's interview with ABC News Radio.
Not Being a Single Father:
"I never really thought of that term. I consider myself a father, you know? The word single is not really registering for me right now, because I'm not focused on that. But a father, first and foremost, I like that term. That's probably the most important title that I have right now."
How Twins, Monroe and Moroccan, Helped Craft Book:
"They were kind of the test to which ones were really good and which ones worked. I would read [poems] to them, or I would kind of make up ones with them. And all the songs or little poems we would [say] that they really liked or that they would sing over and over, those would be the ones that I would put into the book."
