While we appreciate Nick Cannon's capacity for frank adult conversation, we're pretty sure it's also impaired us from listening to Mariah Carey's music for quite awhile.
While speaking with his "America's Got Talent" co-star Howard Stern Tuesday on "The Howard Stern Show," the conversation swerved to Cannon's sex life with his Grammy-winning wife.
Cannon confirmed that he and Carey do "make love" to her music, which also will sometimes serve as inspirational background noise when Cannon's flying solo.
His favorite song to spend quality alone time with, Cannon said, is "Hero."
"Sometimes you gotta be reminded of what's at home," Cannon said. "When you hear Mariah playing, it's going down."
That goes for whether he's alone or with his lady, by the way, although he clarifies that he and Carey don't make using her music as their soundtrack a habit.
"It's not like that's the thing," he told Stern. "You're married, you know how that goes. Sometimes there's special nights when you turn the music on, and sometimes it's the morning, you you roll over and get it popping."
Yet we wouldn't be surprised if these two also play Carey's music while grocery shopping or brushing their teeth, since they seem to jam to her greatest hits pretty often. They also played Mariah's Madison Square Garden performance of "Fantasy" when they welcomed twins Monroe and Moroccan in April, 2011.
