London, Nov 19 : Mariah Carey says that the 11-year age gap between herself and new husband Nick Cannon isn't a big deal.
The 39-year-old, who married actor/producer Cannon in a secret ceremony earlier this year, admits she is still fending off questions from the press about their decade-wide age gap.
However, the star insists that she is still very much young at heart - and would never again pair up with an older man after her failed marriage to music mogul Tommy Mottola, who was 20 years older to her.
"I don't see what the big deal is," the Daily Express quoted Carey, as saying.
"Should I be with an old fuddy-duddy who would be boring and bleak? I have fun. It doesn't really matter to me. I've already dealt with someone who was older than me.
"I don't want to go back there. It's not about the age, it's just about finding the right person for you," she added.
