Robin Thicke was a hot commodity in his hay day, so much so, Rashida Jones asked the singer to a junior high school dance.

During an interview on Apple Music Beats One radio show, Time Crisis, Quincy Jones and actress Peggy Lipton’s daughter opened up about crushing on Robin when she was 12 or 13 years old. “His dad was on Growing Pains, and my mom was on Twin Peaks, on ABC, at the same time. So I met him at some ABC party,” she told host, Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig. “We kinda flirted, and exchanged numbers. Landlines, obviously.”

Jones went on to explain that she and Thicke would talk on the phone and one day she mustered up enough courage to ask him to go her junior high dance. Paula Patton’s ex husband happily accepted, but unfortunately, another hot singer stepped into the picture. Who might that be? Al B. Sure!

“I was like, ‘I’m sorry, you can’t come with me, because Al B. Sure! is actually coming with me,'” Rashida, 39, told Robin.

So what ended up happening? Jones revealed that despite their eight year age difference, Al agreed to attend the dance. “But he didn’t,” Jones said. “That didn’t happen.” Basically, he was a no show!

So instead of going to the dance with a third prospect, Rashida “borrowed a Betsy Johnson top from my sister, and I worked the door.”


Katt Williams Is Ready For His Comeback: “My Only Goal Is Getting Better”



Katt Williams is ready for his triumphant return!

After a series of arrests and bizarre incidents in 2016 that seemed to overshadow his public persona, Williams told HipHollywood he’s getting back to work and putting his personal issues behind him.

“Remember none of those things have ever been about work,” he said when asked if he hopes his new projects will overshadow his past missteps. “It’s more about having to deal with situations that are purposely thrown in your direction, and so I’ve been successful in the fact that I’m not nearly as good as I’m going to be,” he explained.

But if you’re thinking the 46-year-old comedian is in denial about his issues, he says absolutely not.

“I’m not one of those people that doesn’t recognize he’s stumbled,” he asserts. “I embrace the stumble because I know I’m going to come back faster than before, so my only goal is getting better at all points.”

And with six projects slated for release including the comedy, Father Figure with Owen Wilson and Ed Helms, Williams appears to be back on the right track.

“I’m really in each of these comebacks trying to be a better person than the person that left, and if you liked that person this is just a better version than that because that’s what I’m on.”

You can see Katt dishing more positivity in the exclusive clip below, and be sure to see Father Figures when it hits theaters December 22.
