Madonna: 'I dated Tupac Shakur' | KATU
A previously unknown personal letter, written by the rapper Tupac Shakur in while he was in prison serving a sentence for sexual assault. Baby Tupac A new book about Madonna called "Madonna: Like An Icon" claims An Icon" claims that a baby between Madonna and Tupac Shakur almost happened. . I will say that Pac thought Madonna was a ride or die bitch till the end!. Vanilla Ice on Race Relations, Dating Madonna, Suge Knight, and Being . I went on tour for three years, never used them, and I'm like, jeez, you know? . say that was an investment, you didn't get returns on the Tupac and Snoop records.
Actually, I had a bad crash, fell over and got four stitches in my eye, got blood all over my face, and I got a concussion and it hit the tabloids, it hit all the news. Tell me a little more about The Vanilla Ice Project, your reality show about fixing up houses.
What drew you to that? Do you mind if we film it? Come on and film it. It actually came together in two days. Were you doing that to flip the house?
Or is that where you were going to live? Oh no, no, no. When I came into a lot of money, I bought homes all around the country. Tell me about Canada Sings! But the thing that makes it so amazing is that they are doing it for charity.
Each team has a special connection with the charity. No, it stands for wisdom, tenacity, and focus. That way we can get it in Wal-Mart. Do you ever have any regrets about the name or persona you created as Vanilla Ice, in terms of, like, things that were your own responsibility? Well, yes, tons of regrets, but I look at those like positives.
The whole way the thing played out was so huge, more massive than I ever predicted. I sold over a hundred million records worldwide, all my records combined. So how can I find happiness? Well, you know, you think of Britney Spears, she shaves her head, she goes crazy. Can you still walk down the street without being recognized?
I always try to live a private life. We all embrace each other now. I think America has evolved into a greater place, becoming one with equal rights, and as a musician, I had a lot of hurdles when I first started to get respect, just being white. When I first started, my whole audience was black. What do you remember about those encounters? Did you feel physically threatened? I believe the story was that at one point he took you out on a balcony implying that he might throw you over the ledge.
I read the story, and I heard it, and I had to defend it nine million times, but he never took me to the balcony, threatened to hang me over, or anything. Um, I did go to a balcony, so there is a little bit of truth to it. Um, yes, Suge Knight took some money from me, and he did take me to the balcony, explained it to me. He was actually nice to me. I mean, from the money that Suge got from To the Extreme from me, he started Dr.
The Chronic record came from the funding from my record; Tupac came from the funding of my record; Snoop Dogg came from the funding from my record. It produced some great, historical hip-hop music and legends out there. So I gave back to my community that made me. This page has been listed as needing cleanup since I no longer balk at the truth, because when all is said and done and written, I am truly proud that Madonna is my sister and always will be.
Every time we went to his goddamn house in Malibu, from the moment we arrived until the moment we left: That helps in a marriage.
I actually like her, which is even more rare in a marriage. Madonna makes things happen. Put Madonna up against any twenty-three-year-old, she'll outwork them, outdance them, outperform them.
The woman is broad. We have had a great relationship, and part of that was because I never needed anything from her. I recognised that we were in two different occupations. Not to disparage one ounce of her musicality, I was always of the belief that her persona was her career. Whether she was making a movie or writing a song or punching a photographer, it was all pushing a persona forward, and that was the real body of work.
I was never tempted to slip a song to her at thanksgiving. I just wanted to make my films and hide. I was an angry young man. I had a lot of demons and don't really know who could have lived with me at the time. I was just as badly behaved as her, so I can't point the finger of blame. I describe that marriage as loud. That's how I remember it. I don't recall having a single conversation in four years of marriage. I've talked to her a few times since, and there's a whole person there.
I just didn't know it. I was just living in my own head. Who was it that said: That was me, and I liked to drink a lot. No whale, no nuclear war, no starving nation is more important, either. And over the years, we've all been witnessed to her evolution, from street smart kid sister to virgin bride, from sex goddess to a yogi.
Her mind is as celebrated as her body, she's as feared as she's desired, she leads while others follow A woman who is all woman, and all women. She's done great things in her career, in her life, and more power to her.
And so I dissed her, even though she showed me nothing but love. I felt bad, because when I went to jail, I called her and she was the only person that was willing to help me. I pity her for all the analysis she has to put up with.
You know how many old geezers do you see with young women.
Madonna & Tupac?
What's the double standard? You know, they're both adults. What's good for the goose is good for the gander. Many came to ask me to produce tracks, from Depeche Mode to Jennifer Lopezbut I said no to all of them! Within days, even before I got out of the hospital, she was starting to record what became her first single, Everybody, and we were off and running.
I saw her staunch determination and I knew she would work as hard as I did and much harder, in fact. And that's what you need in an artist. She worked harder than anybody. I just saw her perform in Berlin, and she still works harder than anybody. She went through some controversial periods when people rejected her, but she kept on reinventing herself.
I did not get to know her as a person but she is down-to-earth and straightforward. She just speaks her mind. I was thinking about design school. A friend said, 'Are you out of your mind? I like being with my family. You have to be in the right frame of mind. You can't be like 'Don't touch me. I have to take my hat off to people like Madonna.
They keep doing it. What I admire is she's made it on her own terms. She's one of the few women who has remained true to herself and been a character. It's not her, it's the media and all of this. I received an offer to write a lyric and a melody for her, and I felt quite honored. It all works for Madonna. I didn't do it for people to like me. I did it because it was a cool visual, unexpected and I looked hot.
I just find myself leaning towards stuff that only Madonna can pull off. I see what she does and I think it's fantastic.
I'd like to help in any way I can. Baby David is lucky to have been adopted by someone who can give him a chance of survival in this world and I don't think it's fair that people are criticizing her. Not only is she highlighting the plight of orphans in Africa, she's also giving this little girl the chance of a better life.
Oh my gosh, I was singing a Madonna song and I peed myself. Madonna knows what to do next, and when she's performing, the audience is just in awe of her. She was a great performer! If she got up there and she couldn't sing a lick, I'd go, 'Ok, this is a sideshow. The only girl I'll ever need She's really got me on my knees Have you seen that film clip where she's wearing the cowboy hat and she's kicking the dirt.
She is an absolute professional and she makes us all look like amateurs. Guy Ritchie is a lucky man. I do happen to fancy Madonna. She rehearses her arse off. Goes to the gym every day. She does all that stuff to get it spot-on and then she delivers. I'm in awe of her drive. Everyone always talks about her image or her personality or her political stance.
I think she is totally underrated as a vocalist and as a songwriter. She deserves so much more credit for her melodic sense and her emotive voice. Her stamina, dedication and perfection. Her precision and respect for her body and the craft. What a role model for women! I bow down to the one I truly serve!! I was kind like, man, I'm too slow.
I'm just a fan. I'm basically just a fan who, like, tricked Madonna. But she's so cool. She's very clever, very innovative. I was humbled working with her. She's fun to work with and she takes advice. Plus she has an amazing mind. I became like the weird stalker in the corner!
Tupac Explains Breakup With Madonna Was Due to Race in 1995 Letter: ‘I Never Meant to Hurt You’
I might have even dated a couple. But there truly is only one Madonna. We had a recording session in London and I wasn't feeling well. She gave me the shot in my ass and then she looks at me and she says, 'Nice top shelf.
That is what Madonna will always be to us. The shot in the ass when we really need it. I'm quite happy with that. She would be my first choice. I think Madonna might be the only person my girlfriend would forgive me for straying away just overnight with -- because I think she'd do the same.
I went to see her last year in the Confessions on a Dance Floor and it was brilliant, it was really inspiring. Not everyone has that. I respect and admire her and think she's really talented. I've been aware for a year that Madonna was a Gogol Bordello fan and in the end, we met trough mutual friends and we spoke a lot.
She knew what she wanted and she gave me total creative freedom, so for me it was an incredible experience. There were prostitutes upstairs, junkies downstairs and it was a bare room with a bed, nylon sheets, and a kitchenette with dirty plates and a lamp. She reminds me of my old dance teacher, who I used to have a crush on.
If she came for me, I really would. She is a fine singer, a fine songwriter and record producer, and she has the power to guarantee success with any song she chooses to record. It is a gift for her to have recorded 'American Pie.
I also feel that she's chosen autobiographical verses that reflect her career and personal history. I hope it will cause people to ask what's happening to music in America. I have received many gifts from God but this is the first time I have ever received a gift from a goddess.
She tends to use people, then they shrivel up and disappear. She sat there with her back to us, and Rob went up and said, 'We were wondering if you wanted to appear later at the club', and she just went, 'Fuck off.
Tupac Shakur Said He Split with Madonna Because She Is White | mephistolessiveur.info
It seems like you're leaving people behind or you're stepping on them, and the fact is you're moving and they're not Madonna doesn't care if she ruffles someone's feathers. I just thought she was amazing. It could be Madonna, if she wants to come do a couple of shots of Jagermeister with her friend Dave she's more than welcome to come into the room and I'll pour her some chilli shots of whisky, it'll be great!
Qualities which makes her to write great songs. I used to love her when I was 14 or so. I had a regular crush on her. I couldn't swear if it was her music that fascinated me, or the generous cleavage. But yeah, she was hot. She has an amazing voice - the range you need to sing the song is incredible. I was really touched - for Madonna is very rigorous in what she gets involved in and for her to do that for me, I was thrilled to bits.
But honestly speaking, she's a really down to earth, really cool individual. I'm glad I got a chance to meet her — rub some of that energy off!
