Nick Cannon has been released from a hospital in Los Angeles after being treated for what his wife, Mariah Carey, described as "mild kidney failure." "Daddy Nick is getting beter [sic], we're all home together taking care of each other, excited about the new year!!" Carey tweeted today.

The America's Got Talent host was transferred from a medical facility in Aspen, Colorado, where he was hospitalized during a vacation with Carey and their children. Details of Cannon's ailment have not been revealed, but his representative said in a statement released yesterday that he is "resting and recovering at home." Cannon's rep also confirmed that he will return to his morning radio show, Rollin' with Nick Cannon, on January 17th.

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
