The r&b singer revealed that his next single will be even more controversial than his current one. “This is just the beginning of a story I’m telling. It’s the beginning of the next phase. I mean there’s definitely something that’s coming after this that should be more intense than what I’ve already put out,” Ray explained.

And Ray J also explained the creative direction behind the single’s music video, and addressed reports that it will include a Kim Kardashian look-alike. “There are different familiar faces in the video that people might recognize and say is one thing or another and I mean we are entertainers, this is entertainment and if people love SNL, than they should love this video.”

The R&B singer says the video should drop by next week at the latest. When it does, we’ll make sure to have it right here on

Ray’s new series, “Bad Girls All Star Battle,” premieres on Tuesday, May 21.

Watch: Halle Berry Issues Whiskey Challenge During ‘Kingsman’ Interview



Halle Berry proved she could hang with the fellas when she downed a glass of whiskey at Comic Con alongside her Kingsman: The Golden Circle co-stars. But don’t expect her to do that again.

“No more, no more,” she said after hilariously bolting from the room when we asked her if she’d drink another glass. “I will never [do it again], and no one lets me live down the fact that I did it either.”

According to Berry she was ill for three days after, but that didn’t stop her and Pedro Pascal from daring me to throw back a glass right before our interview.

Not one to turn down a challenge, I did it, and received a round of applause and high fives before preceding to discuss the duo’s roles and why they decided to join the cast of Kingsman.

“Matthew Vaughn’s version of these movies always interested me” explained Berry who is no stranger to spy flicks after starring in the James Bond film Die Another Day. “I was apart of the Bond series and I feel like this is similar but it’s also for the new generation.”

She continued, “Some of the elements are the same but I call it spy thriller 2.0, he takes it to the next level that no one else does right now.”

In the film Berry, Pascal, Jeff Bridges and Channing Tatum play members of the Statesmen – a U.S. Spy agency operating out of a Kentucky Bourbon distillery. Pascal told us he gained a newfound appreciation for men in suits, but still prefers his jeans.
