We were in Bobby together and we were hanging out on set and going to the clubs afterwards. People thought a lot of stuff was going on because they kept seeing us together. She's a good girl – she's fun to hang out with (laughs). I really don't have time to commit to a relationship. I just keep a lot of friends around.
You're very active with your Nick Cannon Youth Foundation, which your father runs.
At a young age, I was producing and writing and directing my own stuff. I think that helped cultivate what I do today. So we wanted to shed light on the aspect of producing and creating projects in inner-city communities with the youth – it's almost like doing a Little League for entertainment. I'm also doing a show with Quincy Jones for Nickelodeon – a music reality show with young kids.
You also collaborated with Kanye West on your album, Stages.
He produced one track – he was the backbone to my project because when we first started, he sat down and gave me the vision like, "This is what people want to hear." I just took it and ran with it. I wrote all the songs and I'm the executive producer on the album.
Movies, music, TV – and now you've bought a fashion line, too. Why?
It seems like that's one of the cornerstones in the mogul move. I wanted to get a line that was already established instead of doing the vanity thing and naming a clothing line after me.
So being a mogul is part of your master plan?
That's always been the blueprint. I always looked up to Quincy Jones and aspired to do all the things that he did – how he was a television producer and a music producer and scored movies and owned a magazine. My eyes are on the prize of the mogul status.
What's next – politics?
The political arena is definitely something that interests me.
How about running for President one day?
That sounds good – I'll take it.
