Nick Cannon is coming to the defense of his voluptuous wife Mariah Carey critics, insisting he’s always urging the superstar to embrace her voluptuous figure.

Nick says he’s a big fan of her fuller figure, and makes sure his wife knows not to worry about piling on the pounds when she’s with him, because his love is more than skin deep.

He tells Us Weekly, “I always tell her, ‘Girl, you’ve got all those curves and me with no brakes.’

Mariah blames Glitter disaster on 9/11

“It’s something that everyone deals with. Everybody is different for a reason; it ain’t about trying to be super-skinny. That’s not what’s hot. It’s about what’s inside.”

Check out the recent photos of Mariah Carey at LAX airport in her lavender ensemble. 

We love a man that appreciates his woman the way she is.

Mariah is an imperfect angel
