In a brief sit down with Entertainment Weekly, Cannon sticks by every word he wrote, even if the majority of fans on the Internet don’t agree.
“I felt like I said what I had to say,” Cannon tells the publication. “I didn’t take [the post] down, like, Oh, somebody instructed me to do it or anything like that. It was just one of those things, like, I said it.”
The composed Cannon sounds far different than the one who called out Eminem over disrespect to his wife, Mariah Carey, women in general, and black women in particular.
“I feel that my relationship with my wife is one of the best things — or the best thing — that’s ever happened to me, and it has nothing to do with celebrity or this industry. It’s all about, you know, just love and finding love and being happy and respecting the union that it is.”
At the end of the day, perhaps the only people to consider the brief war of words a “beef” was the media and some fans.
“I never even considered it as beef. It’s not beef. It’s just, Hey, I heard the record. I said what I had to say.”
