Nick Cannon’s Good Taste

The entertainment industry isn’t enough for Nick Cannon.

The TV personality, actor, DJ and husband to singer Mariah Carey dipped his toe into the footwear business earlier this year, serving as the brand ambassador for upstart footwear brand Project Canvas.

“They’re all about individuality, and I like how they support urban arts, which is a big passion of mine,” Cannon said of the brand, which donates a portion of its profits to the Urban Arts Partnership that helps underserved public school students.

Here, the host of “America’s Got Talent” talks about his greatest practical joke and where he and his wife like to get away from the paparazzi.

Best prank I’ve played:
“Telling everyone our kids were going to be born on April 1 last year, when they were really going to be born 30 days later.”

Favorite getaway spot:
Saint Barthélemy Islands. “St. Barts is just a chill spot where we don’t have to worry about much.”

Guiltiest pleasure:
“My sneaker collection. I’ve got a lot of special-edition Air Jordans.”

If I could only keep one of my albums it would be…
“Beastie Boys’ ‘License to Ill.’ That was one of my first records as a kid. I loved that album.”
