LL Cool J keeps it real.


Sarah Palin will be hosting a show about inspiring American stories on Fox News, and in the promo it shows she will profile ordinary Americans as well as famous people like Toby Keith, Jack Welch and LL Cool J.

Except nobody told LL Cool J.

The rapper whose name means Ladies Love Cool James put a message out on Twitter that he gave Fox an interview two years ago, that he had no idea it would be on this show he never heard of, and he considered the whole thing pretty desperate. Fox has reconsidered and pulled his segment from the show.

I am so glad he did this, because I would never again have been able to listen to my favorite Cool J beats. Out of respect for the man keeping it real, I give you his 1989 hit Goin' Back To Cali, pulled fresh off The You Tubes. It's definitely old school, as in hip replacement old, but still I love it.




Cool J and Sarah Palin? Excuse me, I don't think so.

Oh - I so love that song... and the video, I have not seen that in forever.

*snaps back to reality*

LL? SP? I don't think so! Wow. Cluster f*ck city, Fox stylee.

I feel a song coming on... "Going back to 'silla, 'silla, 'silla. I don't think so." Damn, will we ever stop seeing Sarah?

I was relieved to hear that he had nothing to do with this, too.

Fox News has a superstar with an expiration date, I think, and they are making hay while the sun shines. It looks like this is just a clip show and Sarah will be in the studio "host" that introduces clips. Toby Keith was surprised to see himself in the line-up as well.

Of course, I've actually owned music recorded by LL Cool J and I don't give a rat's ass about Toby Keith.
