Nick Cannon plans eagle surprise
Mariah Carey's husband Nick Cannon says he is planning to present the singer with a "bald eagle" for her birthday on Friday (27.03.09)
Nick Cannon wants to give his wife Mariah Carey a "bald eagle".
The US rapper - who married the 'Touch My Body' singer last April - has revealed he is planning to give his wife a surprise gift for her 39th birthday on Friday (27.03.09).
But Mariah might be in for a shock, because as well being an endangered species, a "bald eagle" is also a slang term for someone with shaved pubic hair.
When asked what he was going to buy Mariah, Nick laughed: "I think I was going to get her a bald eagle or something. Yeah, they sell them bald eagles still right?"
Impressed by his own quip, Nick, 28, has named himself the "chairman of comedy".
He laughed: "Here's how we do it. I'm the chairman of comedy. Like any joke, I get money off of anybody telling jokes, from any joke ever told."
Nick is set to host the upcoming series of US TV show 'America's Got Talent'.
