Bow Wow recently stopped by MTV’s The Wrap Up while promoting for his “Underrated” European Tour. During the interview, he shared his thoughts on the Cash Money label, Nicki Minaj’s audition for the film “Lottery Ticket” and being underrated.
I’m Cash Money, but you know we’re all under the same umbrella. It’s all the same thing we screaming out, ‘YMCMB.’ We’re all under one umbrella and that’s what it is, we all fit together well because we’re all so different. Nicki is the first female rapper on the label, Drake is the new artist and you’ve got Wayne, he’s a rock star. Then myself, I’m like the triple threat. I do the movies; I do the music, so we all contribute off of each other. I can open up doors in Hollywood for my team mates and just try to make things easier for them. Nicki wants to do movies; she was supposed to be in ‘Lottery Ticket’, a lot of people didn’t know that. She actually auditioned; I set it up and everything. So that’s just the power that I have, that’s what I can do, so it’s really all about just helping each other. Continue reading

When I started making those weird voices, a lot of people told me how whack it was. ‘What the f*ck are you doing?,’ they’d say. ‘Why do you sound like that? That doesn’t sound sexy to me.’ And then I started saying, ‘Oh, that’s not sexy to you? Good. I’m going to do it more. Maybe I don’t want to be sexy to you today.’
I’m definitely playing a role, I’m an entertainer, and that’s what entertainers do. That’s what people pay for. They don’t pay to see me roll out of bed with crust in my eyes, and say: Hey guys, this is me, authentic. They pay for a show. When I started doing all that weird stuff, I never thought in a million years that it would mean more people would start listening to my music, It was basically a ‘f*ck you’ to everyone who told me what to do and who to be.

Drake hit up the Grammy Red Carpet last night with his mama and chopped it up with Snooki and Sway of MTV. Drizzy and Snooki shared a few flirtatious exchanges in the midst of the Young Money rapper talking about appearing on the “I Am Music” Tour and his Grammy nominations. There also was an extremely awkward moment when Snooki asked if Drake he smashed Rihanna! Check out Drake stumble for words, uh uh uhhhh
If you thought that MTV would run out of ideas to continue the “Jersey Shore” drunken debauchery, think again. Jwoww, Snooki, Sammi Sweetheart, Ronnie, DJ Pauly D, The Situation, Vinny and Deena are said to be heading to Italy for their fourth season! MTV has started the ball rolling on this Italian excursion but Italy’s government will have the final say as to whether the hit reality show will be able to film there.
*fist pumps” We’re to Italy bitch!
Sources connected to the show tell us they will be scouting locations in Italy — similar to the way they did it in Miami — to find the right locale.
One source connected with the show says they’ve already lined up some of Vinny’s Italian relatives to host the “Jersey” crew for an authentic Guadagnino dinner.
And we’re told … two months ago execs began working on getting visas for the cast and crew.
Of course, the whole thing is contingent on whether the Italian government lets them in the country!!
