Nelly and Future Perform on ‘Arsenio’

Nelly

With his album M.O. in stores, Nelly continued his promo tour with a visit to “The Arsenio Hall Show” on Tuesday. Sporting a Beatles T-shirt, the St. Louis rapper performed “Give U Dat” with some help from Future.

“This album is to reinstate Nelly back into the music business,” he said of his seventh album.

Arsenio, a Dodgers fan, also made a bet with Cardinals fan Nelly that if the Dodgers win the NCLS he has to return to the show and perform “Country Grammar” in a Dodgers uniform.

He also asked him about the controversial Miley Cyrus. “I think Miley’s very talented,” said Nelly, who appears on the singer’s album Bangerz. “I think people overlook that because sometimes we want people to remain the same way that they are. … I understand some people may not like it, but she’s an artist. We don’t have to be politically correct.”

Plus, he spoke about his fitness regimen, his famous Band-Aid, and his relationship with Kelly Rowland. “Kelly is a phenomenal person, she’s a phenomenal artist, and she’s just like a sister to me,” he said.

Check out Nelly’s interview and performance below.

Nelly Lets Loose on ‘Chelsea Lately’

Nelly

Nelly stopped by “Chelsea Lately” for some freaky fun on Monday. Comedian Loni Love filled in for host Chelsea Handler, but the interview was just as outrageous. After exchanging hugs (and ass grabs), the St. Louis rapper spoke about his new album M.O., his longevity, and female MCs.

“It is definitely harder for females in this business,” he said. “It shouldn’t be, but it is. They have just as much talent, just as much creative ability as anybody else to make great music.”

Nelly, who is one of the owners of the Charlotte Bobcats, flirted with Loni and even let her touch his abs.

“You ain’t too big for no spankin’,” he told her, to which she replied, “Can you bench press 240?”

Watch Nelly get loose with Loni on late night.

Nelly Performs ‘Rick James’ on ‘Wendy’

Nelly

Nelly unleashed his inner rock star during his appearance on “The Wendy Williams Show” on Friday. The muscle-bound rapper performed his Pharrell-produced single “Rick James” off his new album M.O. and got grilled by Wendy about his relationship with video vixen-turned-”Game” actress Tae Heckard.

“Tae’s a pretty girl,” an uncomfortable Nelly told Wendy. “I don’t know what to think at this point. It’s not like you’re making it out to be, Wendy.”

He also discussed his new music, Cheerios endorsement, and his starring role on “The Real Husbands of Hollywood.”

Nick Cannon, Kevin Hart, & Nelly Preview ‘Real Husbands of Hollywood’ Cypher

Real Husbands Cypher

“The Real Husbands of Hollywood” flex their rap skills while bringing the laughs in a cypher for the BET Hip Hop Awards 2013. The cast of BET’s hit show including Nick Cannon, Kevin Hart, Nelly, and Boris Kodjoe trade bars and jokes in a preview from the show.

Nick wilds out on his castmate and even twerks during his verse. “Kevin Hart, definition of a jerk-off/ Fuck Chocolate Drop, your name Hershey Squirt-Off/ Bunch of mitches/ Watch me get this work off/ Fuck rapping, ya’ll should have had a twerk off,” he raps.

A shirtless Kevin gets emotional while thinking about his absent father, and Nelly calls himself the “realest husband in Hollywood, no wife at all.”

The full cypher will air on Oct. 15, along with cyphers from Kendrick Lamar, A$AP Rocky, Lil’ Kim, Slaughterhouse, Action Bronson, and more.
