Ludacris was doing a TV interview when he inhaled a bug, then he pointed out seeing a Today Show reporter that had the same thing happen to him. It’s not funny when it happens to you.
Martha Stewart had Ludacris on The Martha Stewart Show, and his chef. All three made origami together. Martha also revealed she loves rap music, and plays it during commercial breaks. That time in prison has certainly changed her.
Beyonce played to a small crowd of 5,000 people in Ethiopia. The crowd like Beyonce because her songs have melody, and are not filled with negative messages.
Ludacris, who opened for Beyonce on Saturday, got a lukewarm reception. Local music promoter Michael Melake said:
"Rap music doesn’t suit Ethiopia. Ethiopians need a melody. Rap music is all about the message and we don’t identify with that. It’s all about the black American experience, and we don’t relate to that."
