According to Access Hollywood, it’s confirmed that Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are engaged. Someone slap me now, I’ve been so wrapped up in Obama v. Wright, that I forgot I was a celebrity news blogger, and this came across my e-mail and I almost went into shock. Little Nick Cannon be putting it down, I’m saying this is the year of the cougars. First, Ray J and Whitney Houston, and now Nick and Mariah. There were rumors circulating that they were dating, but I didn’t think a potential marriage could come of it.
