Fuse TV has started this Incredibly Intimate Interview series where they sit down with celebs and film them in an extremely close shot while they ask them questions about their past, career, personal life and so on. The interviews so far, have been very cute but can sometimes make the viewer feel awkwardly uncomfortable depending on how much eye contact the celeb has with the camera. (i.e. Trey Songz)
Kendrick Lamar is the latest celebrity to sit down for an Incredibly Intimate Interview, and let me tell you, he is too cute. Throughout most of the interview, he flashes his charming boyish smile as he goes down memory lane and dishes on his most embarrassing moment in high school, his father teaching him about sex and what he enjoys doing most when he is at home alone. He also talks about a time that he wished on a four-leaf clover to meet Brandy.
Check out highlights and video from Kendrick's interview below:
On his most embarrassing moment
I think I slammed a big girl in the second grade. She was like a bully though! I don't hit girls, I do not hit girls but she kept picking on my ears. She kept pulling my ears in the lunch line and I just got outraged and I snapped and I like lifted her up and slammed her. I was embarrassed off that because everybody was laughing but I don't hit girls and I advise you [not] to hit women. That was my last time ever doing that. Even if they do make you mad, I promised my momma I would never do that again.
On his father trying to teach him about sex
My parents tried to teach me about sex my whole life [laughs]. My pops would be like, 'N---a, you better put a rubber on unless you're going to have about a thousand kids and you're not going to be able to support them. That was when I was five years old though so you can imagine how vulgar it got as time went on.
On his favorite thing to do when he is home alone
Watch Martin! I watch Martin when people are around too [laughs].
On his musical guilty pleasure
Probably the fact that I listen to more neo-soul than rap. I would say that[...] given the fact that I do a lot of rapping in my music, off the record, I'm really toned down and turnt down, listening to Erykah Badu and stuff like that.
On his biggest regret
Probably not experiencing college, at least for a semester. That was my biggest regret. Doing it while I was in my teens at least to get the feeling and understanding and try to understand it. Now, all these years have passed, and I've gotten into a deep career in music. It's going to be hard to find time unless I put my focus into it.
On his childhood celebrity crush
This is a trip. This is funny. When I was 8 years old, I found this four-leaf clover. I picked it up and my wish was to meet Brandy for my birthday. The wish never came true though, so I don't know about that four-leaf clover stuff.
Meanwhile, Kendrick is coming off of the best week ever after snatching up the #2 spot on the Billboard charts. His album sold 241,000 copies, which is the second highest selling rap release this year behind Nicki Minaj who sold 253,000 copies of Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded in its first week.
