Last month, Nick Cannon got into trouble with NBC over jokes he made about America’s Got Talent during his Showtime comedy special. It all ended with Nick announcing he quit his hosting gig on AGT after NBC threatened to fire him. At the time, he explained he was leaving because he refused to be punished for a joke and speaking “so many truths.” Not long after that, Nick threatened to sue The National Enquirer over an alleged story in which they suggested he was in the middle of a code red mental health situation. Nick had some things to say about whether or not he’s crazy, and he let them all out in a high-energy vlog posted to his YouTube channel yesterday. It’s appropriately titled “Nick Cannon Goes Incredibly Crazy.”
Nick does a lot in 8 minutes and 14 seconds. He gets into his mental state, talks about Trump, riffs on the beef between Remy Ma and Nicki Minaj and smells his own farts. To save you some time, here’s a few quotes about Nick’s mental health.
“Let’s talk about the motherfucking elephant in the room. People think I’m crazy. There have been reports that I have mental issues. Tell us some shit we don’t know! I was dressing in drag at 17. I been crazy.”
“They call me crazy because I turned down millions and millions and millions and millions and millions and millions of dollars. I am moving on to bigger and better things, like my mixtape.”
“You know what, to be brilliant, to be a genius, to change the world, you have to be crazy. You know who else is crazy? Albert Einstein, Buddha, Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr.”
Nick didn’t have to spend more than 8 minutes telling us he’s crazy. Softly whispering to a puppet in a g-string at the 7:03 mark took care of that for him.
I don’t know if this will be a regular thing or not for Nick. If it is, he needs to find a better spot to film, because that current location does not fit your brand. Nick, you can’t name your child something expensive like Golden and then record your videos in what appears to be a $19.99 a month storage unit.
