Did Mariah Carey give Nick Cannon permission to sleep with other women before they got married? Nick previously revealed that he and Mariah waited until they got married to have sex, but he recently insinuated that he was still sleeping with other women while they were dating, since they were waiting until marriage. He said in an NYC radio interview, "As crazy as it sound, we waited. It was just one of those things . . . cuz I was just knocking so many other chicks down, that it was just like. . . . (DJ: "Easier to wait) . . yeah . . . and she understood too. She was like look, I see what you doing out there, but if you're gonna come over here, it's a whole different party." Nick also talked about the beef between Nicki Minaj and Mariah's beef, saying, "If anyone knows Mariah, she can go there if she wants to, but she's like I'm trying to represent America right now, this isn't how you're supposed to do it. If I was managing Nicki Minaj, I wouldn't think that was a good look. It's a time and place to act a certain way and when you got the world watching, you want to be on your best behavior. You want to represent yourself as a young lady and there's a lot of people looking up to you and you up there wilding just to be wilding, just trying to create a soundbyte, that's a little crazy."
