Rock & Roll Hall of Famer LL Cool J went viral on social media this week as fans shared some of his most ridiculous music video moments, of which there are plenty. After seeing his name dumped online, LL decided it was “time to break the silence” and responded to a few tweets on his TikTok.
“Yeah, I was definitely ridiculous, that’s my goal, I make my own rules,” he told his 1.1 million TikTok followers as he read a tweet noting his wacky nature. The first clip LL responded to found the 54-year-old artist strumming a woman’s legs like guitar strings.
“Playing guitar on a young woman’s leg,” he explained. “My dad always said when I asked him if he was working out, he said, ‘The heaviest thing I lift is a leg.’ I always loved it. I think I should have had two or three girls, though. I should have had a whole band. Drums and all that.
From there he turned his attention to his antics in Mr. Smith track “Loungin'”, where he notoriously poured chocolate syrup on a woman’s leg in the middle of a busy New York City intersection.
“It was definitely wylin’,” he said. “Although I always thought it should have been more chocolate, maybe using a giant brush or something and just really going in. That’s what I would have done, now looking back I should have gone a bit further with that, but yeah, it was unbalanced.
The following reaction focused on the children armed by LL during the chaotic football scene in LSG’s 1997 hit ‘Curious’, which also featured MC Lyte and Busta Rhymes.
“Sure. Get out of here man. That’s what it is man. No favourites, we don’t do favouritism.
LL Cool J continued to respond to a few more antics, including when he ditched his car and hopped on the bus in the video for “Pink Cookies In a Plastic Bag Getting Crushed by Buildings,” and when he washed his hair. a woman in the shower. while fully clothed in Babyface’s “This Is for the Lover In You” video.
