Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon, "We's married now!". GULP!
OMG. Okay, I totally doubted this one. Guess they shooooooooowed me. HUMPH.
They are really married. So who am i to judge and tell what is real or how I feel their relationship should go. If this is legit, at least they did it right. Whatever...i guess (speaking in soft broken sentences from shock).
Quotes from friends, industry friends, family, and the actual lovebirds themselves:
"She is very happy," he (friend of Carey- Vogue editor, Andre Leon Talley) told PEOPLE at the Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute Gala in New York on Monday.
"I've spoken with her and she is superb. She is over the moon." In his latest communication from the singer, he said she sounds like a woman in love. "I received an email from her [Monday] and she is so happy. She really sounds like someone on her honeymoon."
Talley also had words of praise for the songbird's new husband. "I love Nick Cannon for Mariah," he said. "For Mariah, this is poetry."
Music mogul Russell Simmons said he didn't know about the nuptials ahead of time, but sees why the pairing works. "Whatever makes them happy," he said Friday. "They have a lot in common and should have a lot of fun together."
"It's crazy right! We're definitely happy. Well wishes!" Cannon's brother, Gabriel, tells PEOPLE. "I'm trying to be like him and I love him
"He called us and told us all about it. We are happy for him. If that is what he wants, then we are happy for him," Linda Cannon, identified simply as a family member, was quoted telling E.
And even though CNN calls this marriage a scam, publicity stunt, this is what the new couple (omg...) have to say about it themselves:
"We really do feel we are soulmates," Carey tells PEOPLE, following their sunset ceremony at the pop star's Bahamian estate. "I never felt a love like this was in the cards for me.
" Cannon adds: "She is beautiful on the outside and 10 times as beautiful on the inside."

So they met 6 weeks ago (for the first real time, which she could have planned if she wanted to get to know him) when he was the lead in her music video. Soon after she was seen sporting a huge engagement rock (more details on that below), then the rumors started to really fly and create a buzz, the couple kept quiet and then BAM on April 30th at Carey's Bahama home, they made it official. wow.
I've never been a gwaker at other ladies rings (if it aint mine who cares!) but i know most of you women out there care about that stuff so here it is:
The release described it as "crafted from platinum and features a square emerald cut fancy light pink diamond as the center stone surrounded by 58 intense pink diamonds and two half moon diamonds on each side.
"The total carat weight of the ring — center stone is 10 carats — is a jaw-dropping 17 carats with a value of $2.5 million." (Jacob & Co.)
The world is saying publicity stunt but does Mariah really have to fight for that? She's known as the great come-back artist and does have talent so maybe not. And Nick is a bit impulsive for the love of a beautiful woman (look at all his hot and heavy romance with his starlet exes) but this could be it for him. He's 27, so he's not a baby. Marriage is too serious to joke about and the 38 year old Mariah has already been down that road before. You don't see her linked up with any ol guy romantically. I think she chooses wisely. A Leo (Nick) and an Aries (Mariah)....Hmmm, who knows. I've been hoodwinked before but Good luck!
