Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey took their 1-and-a-half-year-old twins, Monroe and Moroccan, to the Santa Monica Pier on Saturday to celebrate Family Day. The Cannon-Careys posed for pictures with a bouquet of balloons, and Nick and Mariah also went for an grown-ups-only ride on the roller coaster during the fun day out.
The weekend gave Mariah a break from her hectic American Idol schedule after she and her fellow judges, Keith Urban, Randy Jackson, and Nicki Minaj, auditioned singers in Charlotte, NC, and Baton Rouge, LA, last week. During the shoot in Charlotte, an argument between Mariah and Nicki was captured on camera, and following the spat, Mariah told Barbara Walters she was amping up her security team due to a threat of violence from Nicki. Despite the fued, producers have said the show is going full steam ahead and released a statement saying that they "couldn't imagine a better group" of judges for the competition.
