Nick Cannon Talks with Ellen about Recent Hospital Stay and Mariah Carey’s Botched NYE Performance

Nick Cannon seems to be living life by the family G-Code these days which is: To respect, protect and defend your baby momma. Ok, not really but you get my drift.

The America’s Got Talent host stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday to talk about how he’s using fashion – particularly his newfound love for turbans – to make bold statements.

“Ultimately it is, to me it’s like a cultural thing. It’s something I’ve been studying for quite some time and in a time like this and in a world where I just want everybody to embrace differences, you know what I mean? And to be able to stand out through fashion and make that statement and say, no matter what background you from, no matter what religion or culture we can just all embrace it and just everybody love one another.”

During the sit down, Nick also opened up about his recent hospital stay over Christmas due to his ongoing battle with Lupus.

“Lupus is something I was diagnosed with in 2012 and it [the outbreaks] always stems from that, but this time it was actually [I had] medication issues. It was definitely life threatening but once I got to the hospital the great doctors at Cedars got it all in order, but it was just like I just had too much medicine going on.”

Cannon’s medication issue was so severe that his meds caused 70% of his blood to go into one arm, eventually leading him to getting 5 blood transfusions during his stay.

While there, Nick also chimed in on his ex-wife, Mariah Carey’s, now infamous NYE performance, and jokingly alluded to the possibility of it being a conspiracy!

“You know me, I’m a conspiracy theorist. I think the government did that; they set her up. That was a distraction. They just put her out there.”

Once the joke fest was over, Nick proudly defended the mother of his children and explained that in the world of entertainment and crappy earpieces glitches like that sometimes just happen.

“Anyone who knows about performing and having inner-ears, things like that can go wrong on live television; I screw up on America's Got Talent all the time. So when there are people in your ear saying things and stuff, I think she got a little flustered.”

Flustered, shocked, embarrassed, upset, mute. Yea, pretty much any of the above and I will have to say, I agree.
