Exclusive: Nick Cannon On Beyonce & Amber Rose Baby Rumor Control, "Shut Everybody Out"
Monday, Jun 20, 2011 5:00PM
Hollywood actor/rapper Nick Cannon recently hit up SOHH and offered up some advice to high profile celebrities like Beyonce and model Amber Rose who tend to make headlines for fake pregnancy rumors.
Having previously dealt with pregnancy rumors up until recently alongside his wife/singer Mariah Carey, Cannon said the best advice he has is to focus solely on your actual relationship.
"Try not to focus on it," Cannon told SOHH when asked what advice he could give celebrities like Beyonce and Amber Rose regarding pregnancy rumors. "Try to shut everybody out and just focus on your relationship because when you start to let outside influences in, that can only make things difficult. It's hard enough dealing with your own personal situation and people don't really take into consideration the lives that people actually have to live, let alone when you're under a microscope, people will put a ticking clock on you. They'll be like, 'Yo, you gotta get pregnant.' Most people don't have to deal with that so you gotta be strong for each other because when you know you have the world looking over your shoulder, that can only intensify things." (SOHH)
In addition to previously being reported as pregnant with rapper Fabolous' baby, Amber Rose recently addressed gossip involving her and boyfriend Wiz Khalifa.
"Hey Rosebuds I am NOT Pregnant I never went to any media outlets to sell a story either its just not true. :-)"
"Wiz & I Love each other so much & we would love to have baby when the time is right but for now we are just enjoying each other :-)," she tweeted Thursday (June 2). (Amber Rose's Twitter)
Last November, Beyonce discussed the frequency in media reporting her as pregnant.
"At this point, they say that I've been pregnant like eight times, so I am kind of used to it," the 29-year-old singer said in an interview with The Associated Press. "I just hope that one day when I decide to be pregnant that people are happy for me. ... One day hopefully I will be. It's part of being a celebrity, I guess." (Billboard)
Prior to Beyonce's address, her husband/rapper Jay-Z previously expressed his frustrations with the pregnancy gossip.
Jay-Z has one (final) word (for now) on wife BeyoncĂ©'s possible pregnancy: No. "I really sit back and wonder when people are going to stop," he said on Howard Stern's radio show Monday, when asked about the rumors by the show's co-host Robin Quivers. "The day that happens, I don't think Newsday is going to know before my grandmother." The rapper, who is notorious for keeping mum on his personal life, added, "Everyone knows I'm married, I just don't discuss it because it's a part of my life that I'd rather keep private." (CNN)
