Nick Cannon

Media mogul Nick Cannon is currently on tour promoting his new book of children's poetry, Aliens Ate My Homework, in stores now.

In a radio interview with ABC News Radio, Nick explained why he doesn't consider himself to be a single father.

This despite the fact that Cannon, 34, is living the life of a bachelor after splitting with singer Mariah Carey in 2014.

Nick Cannon, Moroccan and Monroe

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."

      Are him and Mariah officially divorced? If not then technically he's not single anyway. Your not single until those papers have been signed sealed and delivert.

      told HIM that I have no desire to buy an expensive camera for a child that complains about loaded the dishwasher and aggravates me at least 3/5 mornings. He told me I needed to relax and stop trippin
      ——————
      Uhhh no. If you can’t do your chores without all the extra stuff, why should you get stuff? Tell your husband he needs to stop being so relaxed. Your not gonna give me grief all the time, then want me to spend big money. Bye Felicia.
      _____________
      His problem is that he was awful as a child. HORRIBLE. IN EVERY WAY. At her age he was failing classes, skipping school, smoking weed, and having sex. So even though she has a smart azz mouth and he gets on her sometimes for the most part he thinks she’s perfect. She never has more than one B, she’s in all these extracurricular activities, and he rewards her and really all 3 kids constantly. I’m all for rewarding them but they have to be deserving of it and it can’t be all the time. It needs to be earned and not expected.

      Speaking of single fathers:

      After struggling to get pregnant, it was a miracle that through IVF, Erica Morales was able to conceive quadruplets with her husband Carlos. But after going into hypovolemic shock during childbirth, the mother-of-four passed away before she could even see her children — leaving Carlos as a single dad.

      Raising four newborns alone isn't what Carlos had in mind when he pictured being a father, but he's more than ready to step up to the plate — and thanks to a GoFundMe page that was created in his honor, a whopping $344k has been raised for him and the children

      Terrance Howard thinks that the word nigg(er) should be wrote into the script for Empire. I just dont understand why? How is that word going to add to the storyline. He was doing an interview talking about how him and Lee Daniels use the word all the time so he doesnt see what the big deal is. His white friends use it all the time. What is wrong with these people. I need someone to help me understand what the hell is going on. I'm very confused cause didnt he divorce his wife cause he said she was calling him all kinds of racial slurs?
