Mariah Carey-Cannon covers the August 2008 issue of Elle Magazine. In the issue Mrs. Cannon talks about her past, as well as, her marriage to Nick Cannon.
Mariah on her relationship with Nick:
â€œWe really kept the whole relationship aspect of it quiet,â€ â€œTherefore, we didnâ€™t really â€˜date,â€™ you know what I mean? Because that would have been not quiet or private. I think we didnâ€™t want to give people a chance to be like, â€˜What are you doing? What are you talking about? This is so quickâ€¦ are you sure?â€

Mariah on her past:
â€œWhen I was in an unhappy place in my life,â€”I always wanted to be kidnapped. I just wanted a way out, but didnâ€™t have one.â€ â€œHe sort of kidnapped me and took me on a helicopter ride. Then he re-proposed.â€”Theyâ€™ve been calling me Cinderella since I first started out, so, of course, being Cinderellaâ€¦â€ â€œMost people would think, Okay, please! This doesnâ€™t happen in real life.â€
