Nick Cannon in 'Stable Condition' After Kidney Failure

Mariah Carey shared good news on Twitter this afternoon: her husband, Nick Cannon, is in stable condition after his recent episode of mild kidney failure. Carey tweeted, "Nick is in stable condition with a good prognosis, hopefully he'll be discharged within 2 days. As always he's laughing and in good spirits."

Ever the optimist, Carey also posted a photo of herself kissing the America's Got Talent host as he reclined in his hospital bed, surrounded by balloons and flowers.

Yesterday Cannon, 31,was transferred from a medical facility in Aspen, Colorado, to one in the couple's hometown of Los Angeles. He was hospitalized while vacationing with his family for what Carey disclosed as "mild kidney failure," the cause of which has not been disclosed. He took to his own Twitter account to say, "Currently being [transferred] to a hospital in LA. Thank you all for all your love, prayers and concern. You know me . . . I will be a'ight." A few hours later, he was clearly feeling better – he posted a photo of his haircut and also a party plug for his friend (and Tom Cruise's son), DJ Connor Cruise.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
