The 28 year old rapper is getting some major attention with his second album, Dreams Worth More Than Money, being a brand ambassador for Puma and his gaming app– OH WAIT, let’s be real. He dates Nicki Minaj and has a huge beef with Drake. So what’s he all about? Here are some highlights from the interview:
On not having privacy: “You want to be private with your girl once in a while,” says Meek. “I would love to be able to just walk down the street by ourselves.”
On people wanting to expose him: “Say my mom took a picture of me with no shirt on,” he says. “I’m skinny — I got a little bird chest and a fat stomach. I can’t really tell my mom not to take that picture, that I’m not trying to have that type of look in the streets.”
On being political: “I’m scared to be political,” he says. “You get too powerful and more people try to take you out. My son ain’t trying to hear that his dad got put away because he was fighting for the country.”
On being a rapper with a girlfriend: “You can’t be hard all the time, man,” he says of critics — such as rapper Joe Budden and, now, Drake — who suggest his romance is at odds with his hard-edged music. “There’s both sides to everything. What’s wrong with it? Jay Z was a street rapper and he had a girlfriend.”
Nick Viall might’ve seemed dickish as runner up on The Bachelorette, but he respectfully spilled some pretty juicy deets about the season to former Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky in an interview published on her blog today.
He revealed that he and Bristowe said “I love you” in private frequently: “We told each other a bunch of times,” he told Fedotowsky. “I was very lucky that… obviously, there’s the fantasy suite, but she requested a lot of extra time. We really enjoyed our private time together.”
He was”very surprised” Bristowe used the L word: “She’s not allowed to say that, even technically in private,” he noted, as seasoned Bachelor pro Fedotowsky nodded in response.
Viall also had Bristowe’s phone number before he appeared on the series: “That was the one thing that was different,” she said. “I didn’t have the phone numbers of any of the guys on my season so I couldn’t contact them even if I wanted to.”
On moving forward: “I spent the past three months really just focusing on moving forward. It took a lot out of me, and all of my energy has been focused on [healing]. After last night, I think anyone would feel really lucky to be considered. It’s obviously an incredible opportunity.”
This interview makes Nick seem like a good dude, even though I did not like his weird baby face and annoying bravado when he was on the show. What do you think- was Bristowe being shady when she told Nick she loved him?
“They knew each other through mutual friends,” one insider says of the Brooklyn-based pair. “I’m not surprised that Michelle is attracted to him. She loves books. She reads almost every day!”
Indeed, the My Week With Marilyn star, 34, once told Nylon that her love of books was “consuming, or isolating, I guess.” She even admitted she had “walls in my apartment made of books.” Adds the insider: “They’re two people in the same mind-set.”
Safran Foer, 38, who wrote Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, was previously married to fellow author Nicole Krauss, with whom he split in 2014, and they have two children together. Williams famously dated Jason Segel, Spike Jonze, and the late Heath Ledger.
According to a second source, everything for Williams is coming full circle. “With Jonathan, Michelle looks finally at peace and genuinely happy.
Well hey, happy book people! Best of luck to y’all.
Happy Birthday, Chace Crawford- hope you enjoyed your day with your new lady/costar!
On Monday, it was revealed that Chace Crawford is reportedly dating his Blood and Oil co-star Rebecca Rittenhouse, as shown by some telling instagram photos and messages surrounding his 30th birthday, which he celebrated at the London Hotel in West Hollywood, CA. PerezHilton reports:
One insider shared:
“Rebecca was by Chace’s side most of the night.”
Another source explained:
“He and Rebecca have been hanging out. They had great chemistry on set and he really enjoys hanging out with her.”
The two seem to be keeping it casual, though things are a-brewing…
“I wouldn’t call them official, but there is a romance between them for sure.”
Nonetheless, the birthday boy was not only with his girl but his former GG co-stars Ed Westwick and Jessica Szohr, too. It’s said the pair were reportedly having a blast despite being exes.
The insider noted:
“Ed’s totally cool with Jessica. She is serious with Scotty [McKnight] now and Scotty is part of the crew.”
