Biggest Headlines of 2008: Nick and Mariah's Whirlwind Elopement

Biggest Headlines of 2008: Nick and Mariah's Whirlwind Elopement

We've been counting down the biggest headlines of 2008, and we'll be revealing more throughout the month of December. We hope you enjoy this look back at some of the posts and stories that created the most buzz throughout the year.

When Mariah Carey picked Nick Cannon to play her love interest in her music video for Bye-Bye, little did we know what was in store. On April 30 we heard rumblings that Mariah and Nick had gotten engaged, though their relationship was still relatively private at the time. On the very next day, news spread that the two had eloped on an island. While everyone was still taking in the surprising story, rumors emerged about no prenup and that Mariah's engagement ring was recycled. Eventually we saw their wedding photos and spotted them on their honeymoon — it was clear that the marriage was real.

The newlyweds returned from their vacation ready and willing to take part in all of the publicity. They posed for every photo op, gave interviews talking babies, and revealed they want to get married every year. Nick threw a Six Flags celebration for friends and family of the couple while Mariah gushed about how Nick saved her. Mr. and Mrs. Cannon traveled all over the world shooting music videos and posing for the paparazzi. At the end of the year, there were pregnancy rumors coming from all over. Most of you didn't think these two would last but with maybe a third addition to the family on the way in 2009, they might stay together longer than anyone expected.

We don't like her because no one likes deluded egomaniacs who live in the myth of their demi godliness, that's why. Especially when they look like IT (it's the eyebrow-forehead combo) http://www.geocities.com/Hollywood/Cinema/2636/clown1.jpg

I'm still in shock that this actually happened. Mariah Carey is married to the guy from Wild n Out, who did that terrible "Gigolo" song. *shudder*
