LL Cool J & Palin Together at Last? Cool J Says No!

Sarah Palin’s Fox News Special to feature L.L. Cool J?

This is not an April Fool’s joke. Sarah Palin will take her first stab at television hosting when she fronts a new Fox News series, Real American Stories, premiering Thursday April 1 at 10pmET.

Guests for the first show include country singer Toby Keith, rapper/actor LL Cool J and Jack Welch. Get excited.

The show will “focus on a range of such stories including a Marine Medal of Honor recipient who gave his live to save his comrades.” But also there will be the celebrity guests – a very broad range of celebrity guests.

But LL Cool J says it not happening. After I sent out a link about this story, Cool J (or someone with access to his verified account) sent me a terse tweet on Twitter claiming the story is false:

That tweet linked to this one:

Interesting. I suspect there are at least two sides to this. I suppose we will hear more about this story soon.


In case you were fortunate enough to have forgotten: LL Cool J... Mama Said Knock You Out

Another Black Conservative: What's brewing? A big Palin "controversy" involving LL Cool J?

Update: Fox has agreed to cut LL Cool J from the promo.

Discussion: Memeorandum

Welcome, Express Night Out readers.

I think it's more

I love the part of the video on that link that I saw...loved what he was saying, but that tweet? WOW, is right.
Who at FOX would be particularly interested in him if the story wasn't that a Black Rapper found some brains and IS Conservative :-)?
..Joe's New York is RIGHT!
"NOt COOL"..>LoneWolfArcher, good one!

Well, let's hope that tweet doesn't represent Cool's feelings and the video does.

I have to admit I'm getting a little curious about Palin lately...this show, the Alaska show...I think she's sealing her NON political future, don't you?

LWA: Yes. Or maybe L don't L Cool J.

JNY: Certainly.

Z: I'd be surprised if she runs for president in 2012. Maybe latter. But she'll keep the suspense up as long as possible.
