Nick Cannon Recounts Time He “Used To Stalk Destiny’s Child” To Shoot His Shot With Beyoncé

January 26, 2017  |  

Nick Cannon is really taking it back with his recent #tbt (“Throwback Thursday”) pictures on Instagram. Just last Thursday he shared photos from his days of canoodling with Kim Kardashian (in case you missed the memo, they dated around 2006):

 

He even joked about Kanye’s presence at the same party the picture was from:

 

But this week, Cannon shared an image from one of the, it seems, many times he tried to make his move on Beyoncé Knowles when they were both teens (she is 35, he’s 36). In the ’90s, Cannon was doing music in a rap group called Da G4 Dope Bomb Squad, and eventually got on when he was given the chance to be a sketch comic for the Nickelodeon series All That. That experience would help him land The Nick Cannon Show on the network. As for Knowles, she was with Destiny’s Child, and according to reports, dating a guy named Lyndell Locke whom she was supposed to have been in a relationship with for nine years. (At least, that’s what he claims…)

At some point, Cannon was able to meet Destiny’s Child, and the funnyman was crushing hard on the lead singer. According to him, Mathew Knowles was not here for his advances — and as it turned out, neither was Beyoncé:

 

Cannon is known for being given the time of day by quite a few beauties, including Kardashian, Selita Ebanks, Christina Milian, Jessica White, and, of course, Mariah Carey. But I guess his game wasn’t good enough for Queen Bey. You can’t blame a guy for trying to shoot his shot! It just seems Jay must have shot his much better…
