Nick Cannon quotes

Family is always first.

The people who truly love me and loved me before all of this stuff. You can't ever leave them behind.

I tell people 'America's Got Talent' is the best summer job you could have - you get to watch people strive for their dreams all summer long. So when you see me rooting for these people or dancing on the side of the stage, that's what I'd be doing if I was watching this show at home!

One thing about being a stand-up is it's a one-man show. You gotta do everything. You're the producer, writer, director, and the actor. You just gotta be out there and perform and give your all. It's such an honest form of art that it just taught me so much, and it kind of prepared me for manhood at an early age.

Right now, I'm as single as a slice of American cheese.

I was 16 years old, driving to LA, and sleeping in my car, just trying to make it happen.

Saturday morning, you knew what was cool by what was on 'Soul Train.'

So my father was a person who never lied to me. If I had a question, he answered it. I knew a lot of things at a young age because I was intrigued.

I think it takes a strong man to be in a relationship with a strong woman. A lot of people hear the word 'diva' and think of it as a negative. I see it as a positive. I want somebody who knows what they want out of life and isn't afraid to show it.

Nobody can predict the future. You just have to give your all to the relationship you're in and do your best to take care of your partner, communicate and give them every last drop of love you have. I think one of the most important things in a relationship is caring for your significant other through good times and bad.

You have to be vigorous. That's the only way you are going to get it because everybody has dreams and everybody has goals, but the only people who achieve them are the ones that go after it and don't take no for an answer.

A lot of people don't know the first time I was ever on national television I was a 'Soul Train' dancer.

I am not worthy to be on a Mariah Carey record. She's a true artist, so I just step back and watch the genius occur.

I love 'Wild 'N Out' so much - one, because it's my baby, but also I get to see others succeed and go on to lead their own careers.

I think my kids give mommy more attention than they give me.

I was actually raised around a lot of children. So, I'm very comfortable around children.

I was rapping at eight.

I'm a musician. I play instruments. I dabble in the hip-hop field. That doesn't take vocal ability necessarily.

I'm not geeky but I have my geeky, corky moments, and then I've got some aspects of cool in me, I guess.

I'm so into playing different characters, even when I was on Nickelodeon. I just observe.
