    Drake on ‘Chelsea Lately

    After bestowing gifts on her and having his sexuality challenged, rapper Drake spoke to Chelsea Handler about big boobs and past loves.

    “My mother had a friend who I was always sort of infatuated with because she was very voluptuous. We used to go to her house and be poolside, and she used to fill up a white wine spritzer, and she would like casually slide it and leave it there and then she’d just show up with another one,” said Drake, who assumed she was trying to send him a message.

    He also talked about how his music can make dating a bit awkward.



    Are Jim Jones and Juelz still cool?

    Their girlfriends may not care much for each other, but Jim Jones said he and Dipset buddy Juelz Santana are cool.

    “I wish that it wouldn’t have happened, but I spoke to my brother about it, and we’re cool,” he said.

    In the premiere episode of “Love & Hip Hop,” Jim’s fiancée, Chrissy Lampkin, sucker punched and kicked Juelz’s girlfriend Kimbella.

    Apparently, the men did not allow the ladies’ beef to ruin their friendship.

    Kim Coles talks ‘Life After’

    Comedian and actress Kim Coles said she was reluctant to be the subject of an episode of “Life After.”

    “It’s a scary thing to think that you’re going to be doing a retrospective. You figure that you may not have control on the finished product. Do you really wanna tell all your stories?” Kim said. “I’m in a place of true authenticity and self-reflection, I finally called back and said ‘yes, I am in,’” she told EURweb.

    Kim was particularly worried about sharing that she’d been fired from a hit comedy sketch show.

    “I was fired from ‘In Living Color’ the first season, and it was really, really tough for me, and I was not treated very well there, and I haven’t been terribly vocal about it,” she said. “Apologies have been made. It was a really hard thing. I couldn’t tell my story without telling that I was fired from a good, hit show,” she said.

    The episode airs tonight on TV One.

    LL Cool J remembers Heavy D

    “Heavy was an amazing artist. He was a hip-hop pioneer. He was nominated for a Grammy for a reggae album—two different genres. He was a really spectacular performer,” LL said.

    “I really respected him,” he said. “I think his last tweet said it all, ‘Be inspired.’”

    LL, who has been in the rap game for nearly three decades, said he couldn’t have predicted having the career he now has.

    “I didn’t have a crystal ball. For me to sit here and act like … I knew it all along is ridiculous. I’m just thankful. It’s a blessing. It’s some luck. It’s supportive people around you, and a lot of hard work,” he said on "The Talk."

    LL also talks about sending his daughter off to college. Watch.
