2008_05_mariahrock.jpgAs if lighting up the Empire State Building wasn't enough, there's no harm in wearing a big fat engagement ring to up the publicity of your new album.

It's being reported that Mariah Carey, who just released E=MC2, has a rock on a very important finger given to her by Nick Cannon (who is 11 years younger than her).

The ring (pictured) is identical to the one that Cannon gave his ex-fiancee Selita Ebanks. Classy! Carey never seemed like one for hand-me-downs, but maybe it's true love; reports are coming in that the "I Do's" were already exchanged during "a small ceremony on an undisclosed island on Wednesday in what an unnamed source called a 'very impulsive' ceremony."

A #1 album, a new fiance/husband...looks like everything's coming up Mariah this year.
