Lola Monroe Describes Tupac’s Influence On Her Song “Makaveli”

lola-monroe

Lola Monroe recently dropped a single “Makaveli” from her mixtape “Lipstick & Pistols.” As soon as we saw the title, we immediately thought of the late, great rapper Tupac Shakur.

In a recent interview, Lola explained how she came up with the song “Makaveli” and how Tupac has influenced so much of her work throughout her rap career.

I was listening to ‘All Eyez on Me’ a lot around that time,” Monroe said when asked about recording “Makaveli”. “I was in L.A. and that’s just what the beat gave me and a lot of times when I write my records, I allow the beat and the feeling of the beat to just lead my hook and the emotion that comes out of me. That’s how that record got created.

We all get our inspiration from somewhere. If you missed the “Makaveli” track, listen to it below:

Blame it on the Goose…and the fact he’s filming one blockbuster at the same time another one of his blockbusters is hitting theaters.  Check out Jamie Foxx dancing it up with Channing "Magic Mike" Tatum in Mexico at the premiere of their new flick White House Down.  Plus, Mariah‘s getting little Monroe started early on how to diva walk for the cameras..

At the 5th Annual Summer of Sony in Cancun last night, the White House Down cast decided to go all-white for the premiere of their upcoming flick.  Jamie Foxx, who plays the President in the film (go figure), broke out dancing with his co-star Channing Tatum.

The fellas posed it up with their co-star Maggie Gyllenhaal and director Roland Emmerich.  Fun times indeed.  And YES to Channing Tatum after seeing that damn Magic Mike movie. 

 

Back in the states, "idol" judge Mariah Carey snapped some pics of herself showing her little girl Monroe Cannon how to walk like a diva in L.A.:

Too cute.

Then Mariah snapped a hot pic of herself working in the studio.  Because every diva dresses like this just to hit the studio.  She said, ‘Off to mix my new single. #music=life (that’s not the song title ha ha).’

Not even mad.  She’s looking gorge these days.  Her first album in 3 years will be out soon.

Diddy Tells “Ellen” About Wetting The Bed As A Kid + Mariah Carey Talks Daughter Monroe Being Her Mini-Me & Renewing Her Vows Disney Style On “Live With Kelly & Michael”

 photo redcheet1.jpg

Mariah Carey was seen leaving her Tribeca apartment to head out to an appearance on "Live With Kelly and Michael" this morning. Find out what she revealed to the hosts about renewing her vows with hubby Nick Cannon inside….

 photo redchetta2.jpg

Earlier this morning, "American Idol" judge Mariah Carey was spotted posing with a fan as she left her apartment building (wearing a red leopard print coat) to go appear on "Live With Kelly & Michael." 

While chatting with the hosts,  she was asked about life with her adorable kids and if they are more like her or Nick.  She said, “It’s tough ’cause they change as the grow up. But…“[Monroe] tries to put my shoes on. She always chooses the most sparkly ones.”  And “Moroccan always watches movies with me” (while sitting on Nick’s side of the bed).  

She added that Roe is really into the "beauty and glamour" aspects of being the daughter of Mariah Carey and she loves coming into her hair and makeup room (yes..she has a hair/makeup salon at home).  Meanwhile,  Roc is not interested in that room and prefers to watch Shrek 2 with Mommy. She also reminded Kelly that she’s taken has 500 hours of beauty school and offered to do her hair one day.  Love it.

Mimi also said that she and Nick are planning a Disney-themed event for the renewal of their vows this year, after last year’s Paris renewals.  And she added that they plan to make the event more about Roc and Roe since their birthday is the same day as their wedding anniversary (and this year makes 5 years!).

She also talked about "American Idol" and what she looks for in a contestant.  

 

Watch the interview here:

Mimi also played a game called “Movie Minute with Mariah,” where she proves her movie buffness:

 

And Diddy stopped by "Ellen" today to promote his new AQUAhydrate gig with Mark Wahlberg.  And while talking about the bottled water, this reminded Diddy about a time where Kool-Aid used to make him wet the bed.

"One thing I want to say is, I grew up as a Kool-Aid kid. Never drank water. I used to pour a half a pound of sugar into the Kool-Aid.”

“Besides it having me bouncing off the walls, I used to be a bed wetter. OK, I guess I’m confessing that I used to be a bed wetter. I went on this quest to stop wetting the bed, and the first day that I had a sleepover and I didn’t wet the bed, it was, like, one of the greatest days of my life. It gave me the swagger that I have today because I stopped wetting the bed."

"There is something about sugar that makes you wet the bed. So to all you boys and girls out there, as Muhammad Ali used to tell you [to] brush your teeth, I’m telling you to drink water, OK? It will stop you from wetting the bed, and you won’t be embarrassed in front of the girls at sleepovers."

Ha!  That’s one way to convince kids to drink water.
