MARIAH CAREY'S NEW SONG TAKES A FEW SHOTS AT NICK CANNON: MARIAH CAREY and NICK CANNON have seemingly been on good terms lately, even hanging together with the kids on Easter Sunday, and that has had gossip sites and tabloids wondering if a reunion is in the works.
Well, Mariah’s new song should put a stop to any of that talk.
In the mid-tempo cut titled “Infinity,” Carey sings about a failed relationship, and while she doesn't mention him by name, many on the World Wide Web of Speculation think the lyrics are a dig at her estranged husband, who filed for divorce in January.
"Why you mad/Talking 'bout you mad/Could it be/That you just lost the best you ever had," she sings to an ex-lover.
“Ain’t no being friends (duh)/Ain’t no false pretense (duh)/Ain’t no make amends (duh)/Ain’t no come agains (duh)/That’s the story, ain’t no happy ends,” she adds making it clear that reconciliation isn't happening.
Other lyrics many perceive as digs aimed at Cannon include:
“Show is over, you ain’t gotta act/Name hold weight like kilos/ Boy you actin' so corny like Fritos/Wouldn't have none of that without me, though”
According to those way hipper than me who break this kind of stuff down on the Internet, if someone “holds weight”, they’re of great importance. So what she's saying is that his name only mattered when he was with her, and now that he's not, he no longer has any cred or influence.
"Infinity" is the only new track on her upcoming greatest-hits compilation "#1 to Infinity", which is out May 18th.
DID CALVIN HARRIS CHEAT ON GIRLFRIEND WITH TAYLOR SWIFT?!: Was Calvin Harris hooking up with TAYLOR SWIFT while he was still dating someone else?
According to the New York Daily News, Harris told one of his running buddies he cheated on his model girlfriend Aarika Wolf with Tay.
Calvin reportedly had been dating Aarika for six months, after they met on the set of his “Blame” video last year, but supposedly fell under Swifts' spell and began seeing her while still attached before eventually breaking things off with Aarika.
He and Taylor were first seen together in public on March 25. “He...just pretended that the Taylor Swift stuff happened after [the breakup],” a source said. “Aarika probably knows now that she was cheated on.”
Taylor and Calvin haven’t even officially confirmed their relationship, so it’s hard to say if there’s any truth to these rumors.
