Mariah Carey, Elle Magazine

Elle Magazine

Before Mimi became emancipated, she apparently had visions of being abducted.  

"When I was in an unhappy place in my life, I always wanted to be kidnapped," Mariah Carey tells Elle in the magazine's August issue. "I just wanted a way out, but I didn't have one."

Enter Nick Cannon, who was more than happy to snatch the "Touch My Body" singer and fulfill her desire to be on the side of the proverbial milk carton of life...

"He sort of kidnapped me and took me on a helicopter ride. Then he re-proposed," she says, referring to the fact that the actor had already asked for her hand a few days earlier.

"We really kept the whole relationship aspect of it quiet," she says. "I think we didn't want to give people a chance to be like, 'What are you doing? What are you talking about? This is so quick...are you sure?' "

Because keeping everything hush-hush and letting everyone ask all those questions after rushing into marriage is so much better.
