O-KAY did anyone get to see the Pre-Grammy Interview Lil Wayne did with Katie Couric? It aired last night on CBS:
Aside from the froggy voice Wayne had during the entire interview, it was pretty good. Did you notice he got a bit emotional when it came to his father?
“I’m a junior and my father is living … he’s never been in my life, so I don’t want to be Dwayne. I’d rather be Wayne,” he said of dropping the “D” from his name. When asked if his father knew of his feelings towards him he replied “He knows now.”
Couric also asked Wayne about his successful music career and whopping eight Grammy nominations. “Music is another form of news. Music is another form of journalism to me, so I have to cover all the areas with my album.” On his latest, ‘Tha Carter III,’ the New Orleans native expresses his feelings towards the government’s response to Hurricane Katrina on the song ‘Tie Me Down,’ which he will perform at the award show.
Among Wayne’s other interests are smoking marijuana, which he shows his adoration for during the interview. “I will stand up for marijuana any day…I’m a rapper. That’s who I am, Miss Katie, and I am a gangster and I do what I want. And I love to smoke. And I smoke”
Ummmm did Wayne forget he was on tv??? He just gave the cops goood reason to run up in his house.
