Nick Cannon takes Mariah Carey to Barbados for her birthday
It's nice to know that for her big 4-0 Mariah Carey's husband Nick Cannon pulled out all the stops, treating her like the diva she is by flying her to Barbados on a private jet last week for some wining and dining. Wait, when did Mariah Carey get to be 40?
Anyway, Cannon hosted a private, 11-person dinner party at Wispers on the Bay restaurant Friday night after flying Mimi to the island, People says. After gobbling up salmon, rice and asparagus, Carey was treated to her favorite dessert: yellow cake with choclate frosting flown all the way from New York, which makes us wonder why she didn't just stay in Manhattan. (We doubt it was Zaro's from Penn Station.)
"Because she's been working extremely hard for the past few months recording new music for the album, it was important to Nick that the trip be a very relaxing one, where Mariah and her friends could truly enjoy themselves," a source said. Enjoying themselves also included flying to Miami on Saturday for a party in Coconut Grove, so Barbados apparently offers just so much.
