Cardi B danced in a club before she reigned over the music charts. She told Stern about her streetwise beginnings and how she felt ashamed until she raked in $500 and more a night. She felt better about it but had to lie and tell her parents she was babysitting for a really rich family.
Stern wanted to know how she felt knocking Taylor Swift out of the No. 1 spot. But Cardi said her eye was only on the top of the chart, it wasn’t about her competition. She expressed love and respect for Beyonce and Rihanna, and she talked about marrying Offset. The interview is from 2018.
Sacha Baron Cohen
He risked his life to film the climactic moment of “Bruno.” Talking to Howard, Sacha Baron Cohen dished the backstory to creating one hilarious scene. In the movie, he introduces himself as “Straight Dave,” reinforcing the image with over-the-top pro-heterosexual bravado.
“Straight Dave” is a fashion journalist from Austria who somehow ended up in a wrestling cage with a crowd of extras made up of 300 recently released ex-cons. So, yes, Cohen, in character, incited a riot by making out with an old ex-boyfriend who happened to be his challenger in the crowd. Chairs were flying, angry men with disagreeable tattoos on their foreheads raged. Cohen ditched them through a trapdoor to an escape tunnel.
Samuel L. Jackson
Sharing his love of golf, Samuel L. Jackson confirmed his contract includes a clause allowing him three golf days per week on a shoot, plus proximity to a golf club.
The “Pulp Fiction” breakout star who became a phenomenally popular actor, says he is boring. Even more shocking, a 1990 subway ride found him dragged by the train. His ankle got stuck in the door on the way out. He needed knee reconstruction surgery.
As a young comic, Rodney Dangerfield was so poor, he had a full-time job in aluminum siding in New Jersey while doing showbiz on the side. One gig was “The Ed Sullivan Show.” His customers all asked if that was him on TV.
He had lots of stories to tell and a book to promote. His parents were terrible. Dangerfield’s legendary. “Caddyshack” is classic. He is one of the most respected comedians out there, despite getting famous with the line, “I get no respect.” The 2004 show was one of his last appearances, he died that year.
In the studio with the Stern Show in 2018, Snoop Dogg dropped an amazing real-life story. In high school, he was a top athlete in football and basketball. He probably would have nabbed a scholarship for college, but he joined the wrong crowd, got caught, and was put behind bars. That was where he discovered his calling.
He would compete in rap contests, two dudes rap and other inmates make the call. When he was released, he met up with hip-hop artist Warren G who played Snoop’s first mixtape for Dr. Dre at a bachelor party. Dre was impressed.
