When Mariah Carey and her husband Nick Canon were married back in May they surprised a lot of people. In an interview with Elle Magazine Carey says that her and Cannon’s courtship was a bit longer than people realized.

“We really kept the whole relationship aspect of it quiet, Carey told Elle Magazine. “Therefore, we didn’t really date, you know what I mean? Because that would not have been quiet or private. I think we didn’t want to give people a chance to be like, ‘What are you doing? What are you talking about? This is so quick… Are you sure?”

“It’s definitely the best place I’ve ever been in my life. If you really look at my life, I’ve never had a personal life, or if I did, it was just wearing a mask and it was not existing, you know?” Carey said. “I put my career ahead of my personal life because I think I didn’t know that I was deserving of both, because that was just how I always felt about myself. That was just my own insecurity and land in which I live.”

Mariah says before she met her husband, she was so down at times that she use to fantasize about being kidnapped from her life. “When I was in an unhappy place, I always wanted to be kidnapped,” she told Elle Magazine. “I just wanted a way out and I didn’t have one.”

She said she and actor/rapper, Cannon were hanging out on the rooftop of her Manhattan apartment when he asked her to marry him. He gave her a 17 carat diamond ring which was hidden inside a candy ring pop. She says a few days later she really was kidnapped. “He sort of kidnapped me and took me on a helicopter ride. Then he re-proposed.”

She says her marriage to Nick Cannon has been nothing but a blessing.
