Nick Cannon Discusses Beef With Eminem Yet Again, on CNN
Maintaining his side of an entirely one-sided beef with Eminem, ‘America’s Got Talent’ host Nick Cannon continued to bait the Detroit rapper during an appearance on CNN show ‘Piers Morgan Tonight’ on Sunday (May 30).
Cannon discussed his various entertainment feuds with Morgan, referring to his discord with Eminem — for dissing his wife, Mariah Carey, back in 2009 — as “awesome,” and speculated on his odds of beating the rapper in a physical test.
“If you and Eminem came face to face, in a street, on a dark night, would you take him out?” inquired Morgan. “Could you physically beat him? Cause you’ve wanted to haven’t you? When he was insulting your wife.”
“Anyone who insults my wife or my family, I have an issue with,” Cannon replied. “I would have to see where that man actually was coming from. If he was saying, ‘Man, this is entertainment…’ but if you literally have a problem with me, then we can solve that problem.”
Cannon also scolded Morgan for antagonizing contestants on ‘America’s Got Talent,’ saying “You’ve crossed the line a little bit on ‘America’s Got Talent,’ where you say some things, like…’Piers, you could get your ass whooped for that.’”
Mariah Carey’s husband also addressed his issues with Em during his May 14 Showtime comedy special ‘Nick Cannon: Mr. Showbiz,’ saying, “If I see dude, and it ain’t 10,000 body guards around, I feel like we need to have a real man-to-man. And if he’s a froggish type of dude then we both can leap. But I doubt that’s ever gon’ happen because he don’t move like that.”
Since dropping his Mariah Carey diss ‘The Warning,’ in 2009, Eminem has yet to respond to Cannon’s taunts.
