Mariah Carey's husband Nick Cannon just one upped Usher's wife Tameka Foster.
Earlier this month, I questioned whether or not Usher disrespected Tameka in his "Trading Places" video that features him rolling around in his boxers with a half naked video vixen.
Many of you thought that Usher's video was par for the course and that Tameka, newlywed or not, should not take offense. You argued that Usher was acting and it was simply work.
Apparently, Nick feels the same way about Mariah's "work" in her brand new video "I Stay In Love" that features a scantily clad Mariah acting like she has a jones for the male lead with whom she gropes and kisses.
I know that Nick approved of his wife's love scenes because he directed the video.
But Nick's real proof that he is not a jealous husband is the song's subject matter where Mariah sings:
And I keep on telling myself
That you'll come back around
And I try to front like "Oh well"
Each time you let me down
See I can't get over you now
No matter what I do
But baby, baby
I stay in love with you
What? "I Stay In Love" is about a woman who is still in love with the ex-boyfriend who cheated on her.
It takes a lot of confidence for a husband to direct his wife singing "See I can't get over you now" to another guy.
Let's see if Tameka would be up to directing Usher's next romp with a pretty young thang.
Until then, Nick wins hands down.
