Christina Milian said she was caught off guard upon hearing news that her ex-boyfriend, Nick Cannon, married Mariah Carey within weeks of meeting each other earlier this year.


      “I definitely was shocked like everybody else,” the actress-singer, who dated her ‘Love Don’t Cost a Thing’ costar in 2005, tells Rap-Up magazine in its Winter 08/09 issue, on newsstands Dec. 30.


      “I was like, ‘Really?’ It just seemed like a weird match,” she adds. “But I was happy for him. I always feel like Nick works hard to get what he wants, whether that be women – that’s how he got me.”


      Milian, 27, says she and Cannon “were so young” when they were together. She hasn’t spoken to Cannon since he started dating Carey. But looking back on their relationship, Milian says she has no ill feelings or regrets.


      “He’s a beautiful person,” she says. “Regardless of what I felt in the past at the time, I actually forgive him and I’m very much over that.”

Nick Cannon has reportedly spent $1.5 million on a luxury five-bedroom ski lodge in Aspen, Colorado as a Christmas gift for his wife, Mariah Carey.


      “Nick is clearly still in the honeymoon phase. He’s shocked all their pals by going out of his way to buy Mariah this beautiful sanctuary,” a source tells British newspaper the Daily Mirror:


       “He knows Aspen is one of her favorite places in the world so this is his early Christmas present to her,” added the source.


Aretha & Diddy hook up; Mariah not happy with Nick; Beyonce learns from parents November 28, 2008


How about this? Lady Soul and Diddy are hooking up! No, not that way, but to launch a new “American Idol” style show. That’s right, according to WENN, Aretha Franklin and Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs are combining forces to find talented R&B and hip-hop stars. But, unlike “AI,” the winner of their new venture will be decided by them – not the public. “The country will not vote. It will just be me and Diddy voting for who the next star will be,” says Franklin. Look for the show sometime in 2009.


     *Mariah Carey reportedly is not happy with hubby Nick Cannon’s candid comments about the couple’s no-sex-before-marriage pact. The older Mariah, who wed the younger Cannon in April, feels he went too far when he told the world the pair waited until their wedding night to have sex for the first time, reports Starpulse. She says, “Why did he tell that story? I didn’t want him to let everybody know that.”


     *Talking to Giant magazine, Beyonce said she prepared for the potential challenges in her marriage to Jay-Z after watching her mother Tina and father Matthew struggle and overcome their differences as husband and wife. “My parents are tighter now than ever, but they’ve been through it all,” she said. “There were times when they were together, times when they were apart. I learned that it’s a lot of hard work, that it’s more than a dress.”

Mariah Carey has revealed that she and her husband Nick Cannon did not engage in sexual activity until their wedding night.


      “It’s not that we had no intimacy. It’s just me, and my feelings,” the singer told WENN. “I definitely don’t want to push it on anybody else. But we both have similar beliefs, and I just thought that it would be so much more special if we waited until after we were married. And it was, and it still is.”


      Carey and Cannon traveled to the Bahamas for their wedding in April following a two month romance.

Age ain’t nothing but a number to Mariah Carey. She was 20 years younger than her first husband, music mogul Tommy Mottola, and is a decade older than her current spouse Nick Cannon.


       Carey, 38, married the entertainer in April following a six-week whirlwind romance. But the decision was not entirely without consideration of the age difference.


      When asked if she ever had second thoughts about Cannon being 10 years younger, she told WENN: “You know what, I did. But he doesn’t act like it (younger) — he’s really very intelligent. He’s a very business-minded person, but he’s also a lot of fun so you don’t really think about those things. It is what it is.


       “I’ve been with someone older and that could be a disaster or maybe you have to throw that side away and don’t think about it — think about who’s right for you.”


       Carey and Mottola split in 1998 after five years of marriage.


Beasties’ ‘Vote’ tour; Mariah’s luggage; Robin Roberts’ battle; Diddy’s rotator cuff October 13, 2008

The Beastie Boys are taking Sheryl Crow, Norah Jones, Jack Johnson and Ben Harper on the road in the coming weeks for the Get Out and Vote tour. “This election is too important to stay at home,” the rap trio said Friday, adding that they are endorsing Democratic candidate Barack Obama for president. An Oct. 28 show in Richmond, Va. will feature Crow, Jones, Johnson and Santogold, while Harper and Tenacious D will support in St. Paul, Minn. Nov. 1; and David Crosby and Graham Nash will join the Beasties in Milwaukee on Nov. 2.


       *The New York Post is reporting that Mariah Carey and new hubby Nick Cannon had so much luggage for their trip from Los Angeles to Las Vegas that they had to take it off of their chartered Gulfstream and fly it separately via Southwest Airlines accompanied by two members of her entourage. Carey was in Vegas to host a party at The Bank nightclub at the Bellagio last week.


      *In the current issue of People magazine, “Good Morning America” host Robin Roberts opens up about reaching an all-time low while undergoing chemo treatments for breast cancer. “I was in a really bad place,” she tells the magazine. “I didn’t want to fake it [on TV].”  The 47-year-old decided to take off the last three weeks of the year to get more rest. She rebounded quickly after her year-end respite. “I think taking long walks really helped,” she says. “And I circled January 10, the day of my last chemo treatment, on the calendar so I had a goal, an end in sight.”


      *Sean “Diddy” Combs had surgery earlier this month to repair his right rotator cuff, reports People. The mogul has been seen in recent paparazzi photos with his left arm in a blue sling sporting a Barack Obama pin.

       *TMZ.com is reporting that a man was arrested at London’s Heathrow Airport for an incident involving Melanie “Mel B” Brown, her husband Stephen Belafonte and a group of photographers. “At around 3 p.m., Mel, Stephen and their baby arrived at Heathrow and were greeted by a few photogs,” the Web site reported. “As they were exiting, a random man approached them and started talking to Belafonte. We don’t know what was said between the two, but the man suddenly went crazy, screaming things like ‘I’ll get a knife and stab you’ at Stephen.” The man eventually grabbed the photog’s clothes and tried to punch him. Officers were called in and the man was arrested.

      According to People.com, Cannon served as the DJ of his own party Tuesday night at Pure Nightclub, and took time to give a “shout out to my beautiful wife in the building.”


      Carey, 38, was reportedly posted up at a VIP table next to Cannon’s deejay booth, where the soon-to-be 28-year-old worked the ones and twos for nearly three hours. Later, she arranged for a birthday cake to be brought out for her husband-of-five-months.


       “Thank you, my love,” he said into the microphone. “We about to take this to the next level!”
