Comedic actor, rapper and “Wildin’ Out” host Nick Cannon is enjoying his life and paying no attention to the haters. Mr. Cannon-Carey, who has been constantly badgered about his lack of thuggery and mostly family-friendly image since he stepped into the limelight over a decade ago, recently graced the cover of Rolling Out magazine and took a second to dish on married life, his recent near-death health scare, what he thinks about his haters and more.
Check out a few interview excerpts below:

On being married to Mariah:
“Being married to my wife is one of the easiest things about my life,” he shares. “It’s so natural and it’s rooted in love, so when you hear stuff, that doesn’t even resonate. It’s laughable at times. Obviously, like I said in my last stand-up special — I get it. I see how [our marriage] came out of left field and people were like ‘Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon? That don’t go together!’ But that’s what love is all about — especially the type of love we want to represent.”
On taking a break from the limelight:
“I actually purposely stepped out of the limelight for a minute. I wanted people to understand I was a businessman and I didn’t need to be in front of the camera — I didn’t need to be ‘Wild N Out!’ I actually took a corporate job and was running a television company — all of that was on purpose.”
“I had to take that time to grow as a husband and a father and a true executive and a businessman; without all of the accolades, without people questioning.
Nick also went into detail about where his health stands right now following his near death experience a few months ago and what he thinks about his haters. Hear what he had to say on the flip..
