Cannon confesses he’s always had his eye on Carey,adding

married life with her seems like a fantasy.

“She was my dream girl. Literally I was 12 years old… I knew Mariah was the one when her poster was on my wall. Like,’I’m gonna marry her one day’. I spoke it into existence.

People asked me who my celebrity crush was,and I was like,

‘Mariah Carey. Watch,one day I’m going to meet her’. And then it happened. We were backstage at an awards show. The first thing she said to me was,’I heard all those nice things

you’ve been saying about me in interviews’.


“I saw her a few years later when she wanted me in her music video. We sat down to talk about what she wanted in her music video and from that day on,we’ve been together ever since,” he said.
