The best-selling female artist of all time, singer and songwriter Mariah Carey, stopped by Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Tampa Thursday night (March 27) to help celebrate the property's 10th anniversary. The intimate setting was the property's PLUM VIP Lounge, with 50 invite-only guests. To mark the occasion, Carey graciously donated a dress from her number one hit "Obsessed" music video to the infamous Hard Rock Memorabilia collection and she cut a special anniversary cake as baked by Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Tampa's own Sweet Genius Pastry Chef Alon Gontowski.

Nick's work day was part of a radio promotion sponsored by Kiss925 Toronto in Canada. Most of the shoppers didn't know who Nick was. But that did not deter him. Cannon was in town to attend the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Medal ceremony.
Rumor has it that the marital bonds between songbird Mariah Carey and her multimedia mogul husband Nick Cannon are irretrievably broken.
Usually when rumors start flying this hot and heavy, it's not just idle chatter; there's some truth to the gossip. According to the rumor mill, rapper Young Jeezy put his posh 2-story Atlanta penthouse on the market so he can move a little closer to his secret crush, Mariah.
And they say Nick is getting his back rubs and foot massages away from home nowadays.
That's too bad -- especially since children are involved.
This often happens when the Dopamine fades and two people who were in lust discover they were never in Love.
It looks like the Dopamine has faded for songstress Mariah Carey and multimedia mogul Nick Cannon-Carey. The wonder is that it took so long for their marriage to end. As you know, Dopamine is one the brain chemicals responsible for our addictions to sex, food, illegal substances, etc.
Marriages are supposed to last for eternity, but Nature has other ideas for men who are tasked with replenishing the earth with as many random women as possible.
Nick and Mariah tied the knot on April 30, 2008 after meeting on the set of Mariah's music video for her second single "Bye Bye".
According to The National Enquirer, Nick has succumbed to the powerful lure of seasoned professional groupies.
Media mogul Nick Cannon, 32, and R&B Diva Mariah Carey-Cannon, 43, "exclusively invited ET's Nancy O'Dell to celebrate the renewal of their vows Tuesday on their 5th wedding anniversary at a lavish private ceremony at Disneyland." Mariah and Nick also celebrated the 2nd birthdays of their twin toddlers, son Moroccan Scott and daughter Monroe. The photo above is from the intimate celebration which took place outside the Sleeping Beauty Castle.
The Cannons stayed in the luxuriously appointed Dream Suite above the Pirates of the Caribbean Disney attraction.
Songbird Mariah Carey-Cannon, 42, and her husband Nick, 32, spent a fun St. Patrick's Day with their spawn, Morocco and Moroccan. I don't talk about people's children but that DNA mashup doesn't always work in a couple's favor. Besides, I don't see any part of Nick in either of those children. For that matter I don't see Mariah in them either.
Celebrity blogger Tami Reed, below left, of Talkingwithtami.com sure does get around! As I type this, Tami is in Miami preparing to appear as a "lifestyle specialist" in a new web series to promote Oxygen Network's new reality TV show titled 'Find Me My Man'.
Tami is also featured in a fashion layout in the Spring 2013 issue of Kontrol magazine with multimedia personality Nick Cannon on the cover.
Last night, singer Mariah Carey tweeted a photo of her husband Nick Cannon laid up in a hospital bed in Aspen, along with the news that he was hospitalized with a "mild" form of kidney failure.
"Please pray for Nick as he's fighting to recover from a mild kidney failure," she tweeted early Wednesday morning.
In a subsequent tweet, she added: "We're trying to be as festive as possible under the circumstances but please keep Nick in your thoughts because this is very painful. They tried to kick me out of the hospital but here I am pon de bed with Mr. C."
So what is "mild" kidney failure, you ask? Mariah might be referring to Acute Renal Failure, or the beginning stages of kidney failure. But then again, Nick might not be in kidney failure at all (Nick and Mariah are such drama queens).
Even style icons make mistakes. We've all seen Rihanna when she's on top of her game. But obviously, Rihanna took the weekend off. We don't know why she threw a faux fur vest over a striped top with black leggings and gold accessories that would make Mr. T proud. But we hope she gets over her 60s style obsession and returns to her senses.
Speaking of a hot sizzling mess, what was going on with Beyonce down under in Australia over the weekend? Judging by the smudged lipstick, either Bey was in a great hurry to join her hubby Jay Z in London or she let Solange's son Jules apply her lip gloss.
I guess Jay Z's mother never told him that if he makes ugly faces too frequently, his mug will freeze in that position? Maybe that explains why Jigga always looks like he's taking a dump. That and the fact that he's pushing 41 now and is dependent on his prescription Viagra to keep him "up" so to speak. Jay Z performed live with rock band Coldplay in London, England over the weekend, and nobody cared.
Big baby LeBron James is everywhere these days. Yesterday, LeBron played catch with members of the Dallas Cowboys before they lost to the lowly NY Giants. Maybe he brought them bad luck?
RHOA cast member Sheree Whitfield wrapped up her fashion line debut in NYC and flew back to Atlanta Saturday, just in time to attend a Hennessy event at the Velvet Room. I guess she knows exactly where to go to be seen, huh? Speaking of fake azzes, I hear that Sheree joined the long list of women who opted for butt injections instead of the fashionable butt pads made popular by Beyonce. A loyal reader tells me she bumped up against Sheree and mistook her butt for a concrete slab. "It was THAT hard," wrote my reader in an email.
In addition to forgetting to tell her producer boyfriend of four years that she was marrying Nick Cannon, it seems Mariah Carey was creeping with yet another one of her producers!
If you recall, producer Mark Sudack quietly dated Mariah for four years, and he thought they would eventually be husband and wife. But Mariah slipped away and married Nick instead! Now here comes another one of Mimi's former producers with a similar tale to tell.
Startling new revelations are coming to light in the form of a tell-all book that's about to hit the shelves:
Mariah Carey wants to quash parts of an explosive tell-all being penned by her former record producer Damion "Damizza" Young, who says he'll bare details of the "intense four-year personal relationship" they shared and "worked diligently to disguise from the world's press." Young tell us the songbird's lawyer Sonya Guardo, who works with powerhouse celebrity attorney Allen Grubman, fired off a letter reminding him of a confidentiality agreement to steer clear of blabbing any sensitive information about Carey in his upcoming book, "Guilty by Association." Guardo didn't get back to us. (Source)
What kind of slut is she and how many producers did she f*ck for tracks? Let me hear Jermaine Dupri got some trim for producing her comeback album.
I'm not feeling this weak track, but Mariah Carey really needs this song to catch fiya because her album, E=MC² is tumbling down the charts at a rapid pace. Plus there's her credibility issue: her fake marriage to Nick Cannon isn't helping her album any.

Comedian/actor Kenan Thompson launched his new magazine Style and Substance at the new Wet Bar aka 10th and Spring last week. Hosting the party was Kenan's good friend Nick Cannon. The magazine was originally launched in LA in 2006 as Substance & Style magazine, but Kenan opened up an Atlanta branch thanks to the ATL's reputation for being the NY of the South.
