Rapper and comedian Nick Cannon's list R. Kelly's 1993 album 12 Play one of his favorite recordings of all time - because he lost his virginity while listening to it. Cannon, who collaborated with Kelly on the track Gigolo, admits that the sexual lyrics on the "freaky" album proved to be a great "manual" for lessons in love-making during his teens. He tells Blender magazine, "I was just getting into girls, and doing more than kissing behind the lockers. On 'Homie, Lover, Friend' he just breaks it down! It was perfect sex manual for teenagers. So I had my first sexual experience to 12 Play. It was at a slumber party, a get-in-my-sleeping-bag type of thing. Just wham, bam, thank you, ma'am. I cried afterwards. Not tears of bliss. It was just, 'Oh my god! What am I doing?' Because my pops was a minister."
Years later, when Destiny's Child hit the scene, Cannon says he developed a huge crush on--who else--Beyonce Knowles. So much so that he frequently trailed her as she made public appearances in the hopes of meeting her. Cannon, who was recently linked to sexy Latina singer Christina Milian, admits that when Knowles and her Destiny's Child bandmates first emerged on the charts in the late 1990s, he was instantly smitten. Cannon told Blender magazine, "I'm in love with Beyonce. When (the Destiny's Child debut album) came out, I was going to every concert, every TV show they appeared on - I could have been the 'Bug-a-Boo' they were talking about. I was backstage, trying to get it cracking. They got the records for when you get intimate or when you're just chillin', they got the driving music, they got the club music. The slow ones are on my iPod 'Freaky Jams' playlist. Where every song makes you want to..."
Now, fast forward to 2005 and you'll find that silly comedian is on the hunt for a white girl! Yep, he said that he wants a white girl! Cannon is seeking a woman of caucausian persuasion after kissing one in his rollerdisco movie Roll Bounce. The multi-talented entertainer split from Milian last year (05) and now he's on the hunt for a new love - and he's convinced white ladies are the way forward. Cannon claims, "I'm addicted to white women because in my film Roll Bounce I had to kiss one. I was like, 'I've never done that before.' Now I'm after Brittany Murphy and Jennifer Love Hewitt."
