LL had the last laugh, post a TikTok by itself commenting on his wild behavior. In the clip for the “Headsprung” video, LL is shown playing guitar on a woman’s leg, which he explained.
“Playing the guitar on a young woman’s leg. My dad always said, when I asked him if he was working out, he said “the heaviest thing I lift is a leg”. I’ve always loved that,” LL said in the clip.
Break my silence…
Apparently leg action is common for LL. In the video for “Can’t Explain It”, he poured chocolate syrup on another woman’s leg.
“It was definitely wylin. Although I always thought there should have been more chocolate. Maybe use a giant brush or something and really go for it,” he said.
LL also made fun of himself for The deep blue sea The soundtrack cut “Deepest Bluest (Shark’s Fin)”.
“Everybody knows my hat’s like a shark’s fin. You know, bald head and all that. You know what I’m saying? Cutting through concrete… Yeah, I love that. Shark week, baby I love sharks That’s what I do The hat is like a shark fin – there’s no doubt about it.
It’s safe to say that despite being off balance, LL got her flowers. After being inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame last year, LL was recently immortalized with a solar-powered bronze statue in Queens.
