Last week, TMZ reported that Nick Cannon almost got fired from America’s Got Talent over a joke he told in his Showtime Comedy special about NBC forcing him to lose his “Black Card.” Today, even though the network said they would not fire him, he says he doesn’t want to say. He took to Facebook to explain his decision.
In his long post, he said, “I have mulled over my process for days and felt it was best to once again speak my mind about an unjust infrastructure that treat talent like they own them. Maybe it was my mistake for signing the contract in the first place, in which I will take full responsibility and have already taken action to restructure my own team of advisors. I now have to set out on a journey of freedom as an artist. As I was quoted in a recent interview, ‘You can’t fire a Boss!’ and that is the essence that I possess. So I wish AGT and NBC the best in its upcoming season but I can not see myself returning” In fact, he goes on to say that he is thinking of quitting the industry all together.
As of now, no word from NBC on his decision and who might replace him in the LA Rounds that are set to tape next month and the show this summer. If it were up to me, I would go with either Leslie Jones or Jerry O’Connell. Who would you hire?
When it comes to Nick Cannon, I think he is making a mistake. NBC had every right to consider firing him. Since he has only worked as an actor, musician and/or comedian, he doesn’t know the first rule of having a job. Never bad mouth the company you are working. The first amendment doesn’t protect your employment even if it is all done in fun. I used to think he had a huge future in this business, but now I think he is so full of himself that he is at the point of no return.
Simon Cowell loves to show off his chest by wearing his shirt half unbuttoned and that could be a problem for him when it comes to being on camera. The makeup department of America’s Got Talent made his face look good for air, but they didn’t have the talent to do the same for his chest. His top half is fair, but his bottom half is tan.
Thankfully, Heidi Klum left her mark on his face to distract our eyes from the mismatched skin.
Was it enough to help move on to the next round or do you think he needs an X?
Last time, Baron of the Universe was on America’s Got Talent, he lifted a heavy weight with just his nipples. Yesterday, he upped his game by pulling a car with them. A feat so great, that you will find yourself grabbing your nipples as you watch him. In fact, you won’t be able to remove your hands for a while afterwards.
In case you wondering how his nipples are, Simon Cowell asked that very question. He told the King of Mean that they are, “very good. They are absolutely fine.” His might be, but ours are not.
The only thing worse was Howie Mandel’s joke to the nipplifter. It was, “I could see something like this in Vegas and you offer valet parking..People leave their cars in front of the theater and you bring it into the parking areola.” Maybe the next time Baron is on the show, he lifts Mandel with just his nipples. This way the comedian can see what it looks like up close and we can get revenge on him for that joke.
America’s Got Talent has been on for 11 seasons and last night Dorothy gave the competition show one of its most memorable auditions. The 90 year old charmed the Judges before she showed them her talent. Finally, it was time for her to wow them, and she started out by singing Let Me Entertain You. Then she did, by performing a sexy strip tease with some tassel twirling.
When she was done Simon Cowell and Heidi Klum rightfully gave her standing ovation. But the best moment came when Nick Cannon broke the rules and hit the Golden Buzzer for her. That means she automatically moves on to the live shows and I can’t wait to see what she does next. Hopefully the censors will let her shake more than just her tassels!
When it comes to the host, how can any woman let him go.
Nick Cannon might only be 35 years old, but these days he is looking twice his age. I guess his divorce to Mariah Carey is really taking a toll on him. Either that or he is filming another one of his funny bits. I think it is the latter, but I wish it was the first.
