Nick Cannon says Mariah Carey is his "dream girl."

The 'America's Got Talent' host - who became a father for the first time last month when the singer gave birth to their twins Moroccan Scott and Monroe - is amazed by how fortunate he has been in his personal life and says he has never been happier now he is a dad.

When asked if he wakes up in disbelief that Mariah is next to him, he replied: "Every single day. Every time - I - and especially now, because it's on a whole different level because it was like, 'Ooh, I have my dream girl and this is amazing.'

"But now, like, to actually have a family and to look down and see children that look like both of us, it's, it's surreal, man.

"I'm loving it, man. I can't stop smiling. It's an amazing thing to look down and see miniature yous looking up at you and stuff."

Nick explained Mariah has always been his "celebrity crush" and he was determined to be in a relationship with her and, when they met three years ago, was thrilled to find she was not the diva people had previously claimed.

He told TV talk show host Piers Morgan: "I mean, I've always loved her. I've always been a huge fan. I would say I've spoken into existence because that was like my celebrity crush. And when I met her for the first time, I thought, 'Oh, I'm going to have to meet this diva and I'm going to have to do this.'

"I mean, she was so down to earth and so normal and so regular - and a lot like I was."

Shakira wants to record songs in Arabic.

The 'Hips Don't Lie' singer - who has previously recorded albums in her native Spanish and English - wants to record tracks in the language, although she doesn't currently speak it.

She said: "It would be a challenge to do an album in Arabic, but I would first have to learn Arabic.

"I am completely open to that experience - at some point I would love that to happen in my life."

The Columbia born star added the only Arabic she knows is "ateeni boosa" which means "can I have a kiss" in the language, spoken across the Middle East.

Shakira played her first concert in Arabic speaking Morocco on Saturday, closing the Mawazine World Rhythms Festival.

The 'Underneath Your Clothes' star has also previously been approached by Bollywood film makers about starring in an Indian production, which would likely see her singing in Hindi.

Amber Rose no longer loves Kanye West in a "sexual way".

The bisexual model split from the 'Stronger' hitmaker last year and while Amber - who is currently dating rapper Wiz Khalifa - still has a "soft spot" for her former lover and wishes him well, she insists there is no chance of a reconciliation between the pair.

She said: "People think me and Kanye are enemies, and we are not enemies. He wants the best for me, still.

"Let me say this: I still love Kanye. I will always love him as a person. I will always love him for what he's done for me. I still always have that soft spot in my heart for him.

"I do not look at him in a sexual way anymore. I'm in love with someone else. I still love him as a person and want him to find happiness like I did. Everyone deserves that."

Former stripper Amber, 27, also revealed she is determined to carve her own career without help from boyfriends or her parents.

She told Vibe magazine: "What am I supposed to do? Crawl up in a corner and die because I'm not with Kanye anymore? Am I supposed to go back to the strip club and not take these opportunities that I have?

"I don't have rich parents, and it's a struggle. I can't just call my dad and be like, 'Dad, my money is a little messed up. Can you buy me a car or a house?' It's not like that for me."

Snoop Dogg has had his probation ended early.

The 'Drop It Like It's Hot' rapper was sentenced to 60 months probation and 800 hours of community service in 2007 for allegedly possessing a gun and marijuana but a judge has ruled he now only has to complete 49 months, which he has done.

Snoop's lawyer Donald Etra told gossip website TMZ, he's "pleased" the court granted the rapper's petition.

In 2008, Snoop had his UK ban "overturned."

The star - who was refused entry to the country in 2007 after being arrested and cautioned following a brawl at London's Heathrow Airport in 2006 - said: "I was wrongfully accused and now I've been accepted back in. The decision was overturned. A judge found me innocent and now I'm able to go back there. So, everybody in the UK, big Snoop Dogg will be back to come give you all what you want."

The rapper, real name Calvin Broadus, claimed "a couple of run-ins and scenarios" had led to his original ban, but insisted there is still a "mutual love" between him and his British fans.
