Nick Cannon: I Gotta Make That Mariah Paper!

FT: I’ve heard you say in previous interviews that part of what motivates you is to make some of that Mariah money. 

NC: I gotta make that Mariah paper!

FT: What’s it like being married to a top-earning woman?

NC: A lot of people think I would go the other way and [say], “My wife, she’s got it, she’s a billionaire. I’ll just sit at home and watch TV.”  But it makes you want to work harder when you see someone with the work ethic like Mariah’s, who never stops, who’s accomplished so many things, but still wakes up every day and wants more out of life…not even financially, just wants to do more things and accomplish more things. It’s like “Wow, if she’s that driven, I gotta go just as hard.” We’re a house of driven individuals.

FT: It takes a certain kind of man to be a team member in that relationship.

NC: You gotta be really secure with who you are to be able to stand next to someone like that with such a beautiful spotlight, you know?

Nick Cannon: Mariah Carey Is 'So Connected' as a Mother 

When he’s not punching the clock, Cannon is spending time with his wife, Mariah Carey, and their two-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe.

On how he and wife Mariah Carey juggle busy careers and parenthood.
“Family is always first. We’re a 24-hour household. Someone is always up with the kids – we get to spend time with each other that way, up with the kids at three in the morning. We’re constantly with each other. A lot of people have nine-to-fives where they have to be away from their family throughout the day, so I think we might even get to spend more time with our kids than most people because we don’t work nine-to-five straight. Yesterday, I was flying a kite with my kid in the middle of the day, even though it wasn’t a weekend, most people don’t get to do that. It’s a good lifestyle—even with our lifestyle, we still get to put family first.”

On what it’s like having two-year-olds running around the house.
“It’s fun. I think I have more fun with my kids than I’ve ever had. Like I said, flying a kite yesterday – the last time I did that I was a kid! Doing that type of stuff is amazing.”

On what would surprise people to know about Mariah as a mom.
“She cooks for the kids and helps them with their alphabet and their math. She’s so connected and does everything you think a mother would do.”

On Mariah’s recent injury while filming a video for the remix of her hit “#Beautiful.”
“She’s feeling much better. She still doesn’t have full use of her right hand yet because of the nerve damage, but she’ll heal up and hopefully be back to normal. Her shoulder is back in place and her ribs are feeling better, but she’s just looking forward to using her hand again.”

On her recent performance at the Major League Baseball All-Star Charity Concert in New York City’s Central Park.
“You have to use your ribs to sing and hit those notes, so for her to be able to hit those notes in that much pain was tremendous.”

Nick gives Mariah health update

Mariah Carey continues to recover from a shoulder injury she suffered while on the set of her new music video earlier this month. Just days after being hospitazlied, she appeared at the MLB All-Star Charity Concert in New York looking and sounding great -- and quite stylish in a fashion-forward sling.

On Monday, her husband, Nick Cannon, told CBSNews.com that Carey continues to feel better, but noted, "She still has a lot of nerve damage in her arm so she can't really move her arm all the way. So she's still in the sling. And she still has issues with her ribs and everything. But the doctors says a lot of rest and relaxation and she'll be back to normal in no time."

Cannon said Carey, 43, is still working on her new album, too, noting: "That's her main focus right now."

Mariah, Bruised and Hurting, Plays Central Park Show for Hurricane Sandy Survivors

Mariah Carey soldiered on and last night, and shouldered on. She kept her promise and sang– very much live and in great voice–at a Major League Baseball event that raised money for survivors of Hurricane Sandy. Mariah brought her back up singers and sang with the New York Philharmonic led by Alan Gilbert.

This was no small feat. She has a painful dislocated shoulder in a sling, and it is extremely bruised. She covered it up her sling with three ingenious get ups that were put together by her old friend designer Wilfredo Rosado. One we called the Bling Sling, white and dotted with Swarovski crystals. Then she covered that one up with a white goose feathers. And a third was a ripped up black Gucci jacket.

On top of this, Mariah came and went from the stage on a elevator platform, so that she emerged and then disappeared as if through a trap door. Again, she has nerve damage in her right arm. And when we saw the actual purple bruise on her arm backstage, there was audible gasping. The fact that she came, dressed, and sang the hell of out of four songs was pretty cool.

And you could hear her singing live– live– clear across Central Park. She sang “My All” and “Looking In” in the first half. (She got a little teary verklempt during the latter and paused briefly.) She returned to do a bit of “#Beautiful” and then banged out “Hero” with a gospel choir. Her voice was extremely strong and very much in good shape.

Backstage Mariah chatted with her mom and played with her two kids, Roc and Mo (Roe), the twin boy and girl who were really unbelievably cute. The little girl is a doll, and does a hysterical imitation of Mariah that includes Mariah’s hand gestures. Roc is a mini Nick Cannon, with a high forehead, a forest of hair that stands right up and he’s a bundle of energy.

An orthopedic doctor was backstage doing some therapy with Mariah on her arm when I made a brief pass through. “Did you ever see anything like this?”  she said, all the while playing with the kids.

PS : Mariah says work is continuing on her album, which was delayed but, she assured me, is coming. “I can’t wait for you to hear it.” Randy Jackson was a guest star tonight on guitar, and he’s in town helping Mariah put on the finishing touches.

The Show Goes On For Mariah In Central Park

Mariah Carey, who last Sunday injured her shoulder while shooting a music video, turned up Saturday night at Central Park's Great Lawn in a dazzling, form-fitting white gown by Natalia Danilova -- and matching sling. Carey had only recently left the hospital, but she was set to perform as a guest of the New York Philharmonic at the Major League Baseball All-Star Charity Concert, benefiting relief efforts for Hurricane Sandy.

"I'm not in the best of health here," she said, pointing to her "fanciful" sling: "It was us getting creative." As a finishing touch, she draped it in a feather stole -- by Gucci, no less. "Is this working? Do we like it?" she rhetorically asked the crowd, who roared its approval.

Carey sang two numbers before intermission, a husky, impassioned My All and Looking In. She noted that the latter was a more obscure entry from her 1995 album Daydream: "This requires a bit more stability than I have right now," she said, then started in her airier voice, later encouraging "people who know it" to "sing along."

Ending the mini-set in equally dramatic fashion, she asked her fans to "wait for me. I love you madly. I love you madly."

When she returned, Carey was all in black, sling included. "I'm sorry if I was a little emotional before," she said. "I'm in a tiny bit of pain."

A spokesperson for Carey said that the singer was "actually in a lot of pain," with "bruised ribs, dislocated shoulder, temporary nerve damage in her arm." But she rallied again, delivering her current single #Beautiful in a robust alto embellished with her trademark coloratura high notes near the end.

She again thanked the Philharmonic, and another supporting musician: her longtime colleague and former fellow American Idol judge Randy Jackson, who was playing guitar.

The concert, which fans attended for free -- sponsors provided the funds to Sandy Relief

Carey, a native New Yorker herself, wrapped the concert with a song she said felt appropriate, Hero. "God bless you," she told the crowd and, not to be upstaged, exited before a fireworks display brought the evening to a close.

She's a trooper !!

Mariah not only dislocated her shoulder, she cracked a rib and chipped her shoulder bone too.

According to Nick (on Today) Mariah fell from a platform while filming a video for the remix of #Beautiful. 

"She was in this nice, beautiful gown, heels on and everything, and was kind of on this platform and reached and slipped and fell on her whole side," he explained.

But despite the wounds, Cannon insists his wife handled it all like "a trooper." He should know -- he served as director at the shoot.

"I was going to rush to the hospital with her, (but she said,) 'You get back in there and finish that video!' " he recalled. "Then, after they put (her) shoulder back in place, bandaged her all up, she came back to the video early in the morning and finished out everything."

Cannon said Carey just wants a good video after all that went into making it.

The singer's now following doctors' orders and is taking it easy ahead of a big charity performance in Central Park on Saturday, which will benefit the victims of Superstorm Sandy.
