It’s difficult to imagine a world without the Kardashians. From film to fashion, the polarizing First Family of Reality TV has penetrated every facet of international pop culture.
Apparently, someone forgot to fax Mariah Carey that memo.
Kim may have bulldozed her way onto the cover of Vogue, but she’s got a few more red carpet appearances to make before she’ll be a hot topic of discussion on Planet Diva. Let’s just say Mariah has not been Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
This, of course, is according to Nick Cannon — known in some circles as Mr. Mariah.
Cannon is currently on the promo trail chatting up his forthcoming album, White People Party Music (Don’t ask). It’s his loose-lipped blabs about intimate encounters with former lovers — including Christina Milian, Selita Ebanks and yes, Kim Kardashian — that’s really got tongues wagging, however. The America’s Got Talent host revealed Mimi’s pop culture blind spot, plus a whole lot more in a Wednesday morning appearance on The Howard Stern Show.
“The one that [must have gotten] Mariah the most pissed was [when] you talked about Kim Kardashian, that you f–ked her, and that really got Mariah’s goat,” Howard chided.
“You know? I don’t think … no, ’cause, honestly … my wife, she [doesn’t] even know who Kim Kardashian is,” the ex-Nickelodeon star responded.
“Right, she’s on a whole other planet,” Stern said.
“Yeah, she doesn’t pay attention to that,” Cannon replied.
