Nick Cannon Says He Did Not Release 'Alone' To Get Mariah Back

Nick Cannon says his single "Alone" which was released on Valentine's Day was not to get Mariah Carey back.

"Everybody was saying this was my song to try to get Mariah back," he said on his talk show. "That's impossible. But honestly, the music is therapeutic for me. One of the things all my life...growing up in the church, gospel music...it helps me get through things so sometimes I get to writing and reflecting. Really the song is about reflection."

He continued, "Men, and we do this a lot, you realize, 'I really messed up.' I had probably the greatest situation. I had my dream girl and I messed it up. The song wasn't really about trying to get her back, it was taking ownership of what I did as a man and owning my flaws and expressing it through song. I just out there trying to spread that Kanye West energy. Kanye trying to get Kim back though."

Meanwhile, Mariah wants her fans to know that she and her boyfriend are still going strong.
