Mr. Carey Backs Off the Beef with Eminem

- By Bossip Staff

Nick Cannon knows he would never be able to battle Eminem and that’s why he’s supposedly chillin’ out on the negative posting and comments. Pop the hood for more

Nick Cannon was pretty steamed over Eminem’s brutal lampooning of the singer and his wife, Mariah Carey, in the song “Bagpipes from Baghdad, which appears on Eminem’s new LP, Relapse. Cannon wrote and then quickly took down a long blog post where he accused Eminem of being racially insensitive and “still obsessed with my wife, the same female that wouldn’t let him get to second base from eight years ago”; Eminem later said Cannon had misinterpreted the song.

Entertainment Weekly talked with Cannon on Thursday about the issue.

“I felt like I said what I had to say,” Cannon said. “I didn’t take [the post] down, like, ‘Oh, somebody instructed me to do it’ or anything like that. It was just one of those things, like, I said it.”

As for the real reason he took the post down, Cannon said it had to do with the traffic to his Web site, which “pretty much crashed my site. There’d be thousands and thousands of comments and people couldn’t leave comments on other posts or any of that stuff. So that was the only reason why I took it down.”

And while noted that he doesn’t have any regrets about what he said — “I feel exactly the same way by it and stick by everything, but I think it’s one of those things where it becomes that it’s not really that big of a deal, you know?” — he did say he has no beef with the MC.

“I never even considered it as beef,” he said. “It’s not beef. It’s just, Hey, I heard the record. I said what I had to say.”

Cannon went on to praise his relationship with Carey. “I feel that my relationship with my wife is one of the best things — or the best thing — that’s ever happened to me, and it has nothing to do with celebrity or this industry. It’s all about, you know, just love and finding love and being happy and respecting the union that it is.”

We knew he would back down. Someone in his camp finally got through to him: “Nick, come on man, you and Em battling. Farreal?” Fall back.

  • huh & what

    Em is a loser.

  • the insider

    TECHNICALLY EM fell back first…. But I still think that Nick being a comedian would’ve slaughtered EM. The least we can all do is applaud him for standing up for his wife.

    CHIVALRY’S NOT DEAD. 🙂

  • I WILL SAY ANYTHING!!!

    Leave Nick Carey alone!!

  • nitenrz

    sic of it already

  • Smoovee Sayz

    He stopped because Mariah told him to.

  • Jordin Sparks

    I like Nick. He reminds me of my man Chris Brown….so sensitive

  • Jane Doe

    Uhh it was Eminem who backed off first because hes already apologised. Eminem is a punk anyway because you dont disrespect a man wife, where i come from talking about another mans wife will get you killed.

  • SMAMMY

    THE REAL REASON HE FELL BACK IS BECAUSE HE PROBABLY FOUND OUT WHAT EMINEM SAID WAS TRUE. NICK CANON IS THE CORNIEST DUDE OF AL TIMES AND HE GOT REALLY LUCKY WITH AN AGING, USED, HEARTBROKEN (BY LUIS MIGUEL) MARIAH CAREY.

    eminem is a depressing lunatic who has major DSM III type issues

  • Speaking the truth...

    I am upset with the hip hop community for even embracing Eminem. He disrepected our race and (regardless if it was underground mix tape) or not he overstepped his boundaries in my opinion a long time ago. 50 is no better either…he is using his money to exploit another black man’s issues (talking about rick ross) to ruin his career.

    Something is wrong with both of them…and thats why Eminem had drug problems and 50 has alienated himself in the hip hop game. All stupidity.

    Thats what happens when you have too much time and money on your hands.

  • grant

    yeah why fight over a fake marriage anyway?

  • Speaking the truth...

    Oh..I forgot…Nick handled his business like a man..he wanted to say something about the situation he did it case closed…it wasn’t about falling back…it was about making a point. He said what he had to say and left it alone instead of trying to instigate a situation.

  • Jane Doe

    @ Speaking the truth…

    I agree with you 100%

  • Da Winner Is!

    Everyone is missing the point of the attack on the Cannons.
    Em was trying to get a reaction out of the two to sell his cd and he suceeded. He put the bait out there, Nick bit and help promote his cd and Em dropped it. His job was done.

  • darealwifey

    Kudos to Nick. He has too much at stake to get caught up in some dumb B.S. to entertain folks who never have anything good to say or do in the world.

    Sometimes we are a tired race of people. Some people love keeping their minds in the gutter, and want to drag everyone else down with them. Nothin’ but the devil.

  • lady_jay

    He spoke his mind and Em said that he was sorry, why drag the crap out longer then it needs to be addressed.

  • Demeter

    Em saying anymore about this would be unfair, like fighting a handicap man.

  • Smoovee Sayz

    Regardless u dont ignore beef like Ricky Ross presented to Eminem (on a silver platter by the way) and go at Nick Cannon…for what??? I joke on lil Nicky all the time but cmon now he a bizness man. He holds his own. Its not more than what Mariah has but he doing something.

  • BKLYNZ OWN

    MR.CAREY…..LMAO

    WITH ALL THAT DRAMA,I THOUGHT NICK WAS PROMOTING HIS ALBUM.(WHY REGGIE DIDNT SAY NOTHING TO EM)

  • Trini Bwoy

    @ Black Men Are Weak,

    Mariah eats Nick.

    But Seriously, I agree with standing up for your wife.
    Em is a little white piece of snot; I know white boys like him, I use to kick their asses back in the day.
    I respect Nick. I stand by any person that stands up for the one they love

  • bmwdriver540i

  • Lion Line
