Nick Cannon told People Magazine that he will “absolutely not” allow his children with Mariah Carey, the ridiculously named Moroccan and Monroe, to be in the entertainment industry.
“I just want them to strive for something greater than entertainment. I’m one of those believers in teachers, professors, heart surgeons. That’s what I’m rooting for. If I could get a scientist, that’d be amazing.”
First of all, I think it’s ridiculous when parents look down on the profession that has made them successful and famous. I mean, who do you think Nick Cannon would be if he wasn’t the host of America’s Got Talent? Probably a cater-waiter.
Second of all, there’s no way that Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon’s genes produced a heart surgeon. There’s just no way.
They should be hoping against hope that those babies inherit a smidge of their mother’s talent and their father’s … gosh, I don’t know, persistence?
