Nick Cannon is 'Famous'

Besides being a DJ, host of "America's Got Talent" and Mr. Mariah Carey, Nick Cannon has also been an actor, comic and aspiring music star.

The last two are on display in his latest song and music video "Famous," featuring singer Akon.

In the video for the upbeat song, Cannon portrays several famous stars, including the late Michael Jackson and M.C. Hammer. He even spoofs YouTube sensation Antoine Dodson.

The song has become so hot that it has already spawned a spoof of the spoof in which Cannon appears with another YouTube sensation, young Keenan Cahill.

    All of you need to read a book instead of reading blogs. Nick has his own. Yes, MC is famous and has long money. But, Nick is no slouch, and his parents are and were smart, since Nick been famous he has been executive producer, producer on most of his shows, movies and Nickelodeon. He is the CHAIRMAN of TeenNick. He is the development and creative consultant of Nick. He is a business man, radio host, comedian, actor, musician (althought he may not be top charts hot he is a musician) and his own entertainment label. Instead of talking about what HE IS NOT. Why don't you try to get like him and get YOUR OWN. Call him what you want but you H8S sound miserable and he is living life laughing all the way to the bank.

    Where has everyone seen these pictures of the children? How do you know they are rat babies? I doubt with two goodlooking parents as those kids have, they'd come out looking like rats. I need proof.

    All of you are a bunch of losers, never have nothing good to say about anyone, go get a damn life. Nick has his own and so does Mariah Carey. They all are living the life while all you losers are wallowing in self pity when you look at your pitiful lives. If you have nothing good to say about anyone go srew yourselves you loosers.

  6. I Hate Ignorant People

    People...please do your research before making stupid comments. Nick Cannon is a very talented man, who has his own money. He's been in the entertainment business for yrs and has built his own empire before he was 20 yrs old. SMH...and please leave the babies alone. They have nothing to do with the article above. Before you pass judgement make sure your information is correct. Have a wonderful day 🙂

    Give the man a break, he is married and I think it will work as long as she respects him. He is a good guy and she is the goofball. Yes, she has money but money can't buy her love. She better appreciate him. I hope he respects her also. They will be fine as long as they stay out of the media. Long as they stay in control of that. Itsallgood!!!

    Y'all are mistaken! Nick has been around for years, on nickelodeon, on his MTV show, in several movies , most Famously "Drumline"& he Famously dated hottie Christina Milian for several yrs. Plus he's dabbled in music as long as he's been on the scene, so this is not a surprising developement. Why y'all mega-hatin'?!? Has he done any of you wrong, personally? Seems there be some greeneyed monsters in tha house, tonite! And please stop calling his & Mariahs babies rats! Say what you will about adults, but these are tiny infants who can't defend themselves!! Think about your own kids, if you have any, & what you'd do to someone calling them names! Yeah, I thought so!!

    All his fame comes from riding Mariah Careys coattails. He isnt anything on his own. Only famous as long as Mariah is his wife.

    All he is famous for is having children that are in the WHAT ARE THEY section of the Weekly World News. Vampire rat babies that feast on diarreah fudge specially packed inside Justin Bieber.

      The only this this Nick "the loser" Cannon did was impregnate a crazy woman who in turn pumped out his little rats.

      Nothing more.
