Nick Cannon is hoping to clear up the buzz surrounding his response to rapper Saweetie’s tweet that she wants “some babies.” Below, watch as the talk show host decodes his message.
“I guess I was all over The Shade Room this weekend. Again, I think I’m very misunderstood,” the 41-year-old said while opening up his What’s Poppin segment on his self-titled talk show. “Saweetie tweeted, ‘I want some babies.’ And I just replied with some emojis as an expert in babies.”
Full of laughs, he continued, “Anybody who can speak emoji knows what that says. What y’all think that say right there?” he asked the audience before playfully going into an explanation.
According to Nick, “You’ve got to take time and break it down. This is what it actually says, ‘take time for making such a big decision.’ That’s what I was only trying to say.”
He went on to explain that his ninja emojis are always “misunderstood” before highlighting some of the wildest tweets he received from fans. One read, “The celibacy clock is tickin!!!!”
For those who may not know, the father-of-seven has recently embarked on a celibacy pledge until the start of 2022, per his therapist’s recommendation. “I’m still holding onto it,” he revealed on the show.
“Shout out to Saweetie, it was all in fun. No disrespect. If she ready to have kids, get to it queen. We rocking with you!”
Saweetie has yet to publicly respond to Nick.
