"You just hurt my heart, bro. I ain't been to the Playboy mansion yet," said Boosie after hearing about the death of Hugh Hefner. "I like looking at porn. I liked to look at women in magazines, since I was a kid though. Around my family, it wasn't hard to walk up on a Playboy.

It came as a shock to the controversial artist because he admittedly had not been on social media over the last 24 hours, but he wasn't shy about going into detail about what Hugh Hefner's brainchild did for him when he was a youngster.

"I used to love Playboy because I like hairy vaginas," says Boosie with a smile. "Them pretty white girls with red hair. In the early '90s and late '80s, redheads were just bad... with the fluffy hair down there. Oohhh, I love it."

We'll leave it there for now...

Jada Pinkett Smith Confirms Past Relationship With August Alsina

As promised, Jada Pinkett Smith brought herself to the infamous red table but she wasn’t alone. Will Smith joined his wife to address August Alsina’s claims in a special mini-episode of Red Table Talk that premiered on Friday (July 10).

Jada confirmed that she was once in a relationship with the 27-year-old singer while “separated” from Will. According to Jada, things with Alsina started out as a platonic friendship before turning into something more.

“As time went on, I got into a different kind of entanglement with August,” she admitted.

The actress went on to clarify that Will never August “permission” to date her. “The only person that can give permission in that particular circumstance is myself,” she said. “I could see how he would perceive it as ‘permission' because we were separated amicably and I think he also wanted to make it clear that he’s not a home wrecker — which he’s not.

“I was in a lot of pain. I was broken. I definitely realized that you can’t find happiness outside of yourself, and luckily enough, you and I were going through a process of healing in a much different manner,” Jada told Will. “I would definitely say we did everything we could to get away from each other only to realize that that wasn’t possible.”

Later in the talk, Will asked Jada what she was looking for in August. “I just wanted to feel good,” she said. “And it was really a joy just to heal somebody.”

The couple, who have been together for 25 years, also revealed their relationship mantra: “We ride together. We die together. Bad marriage for life.”
