Rapper/actor LL Cool J was recently interviewed by his youngest daughter Nina,10, for Redbook magazine.
Nina: Daddy, I love Miley Cyrus. What’s your favorite song of hers?
LL: “Party in the USA.” It’s a real fun song. I just wish my name were in it.
Nina: I love to watch you on TV. Do you ever get scared to do that action stuff on NCIS?
LL: I actually enjoy it — you just can’t be Mr. Macho. I do about 90 percent of my own stunts, and the things I can’t do for insurance reasons, like swinging out of a flying helicopter, I wouldn’t want to do anyway.
Nina: If I get all A’s on my report card this year, do I get a present?
LL: I expect you to get all A’s. Why would I get you a present?
Nina: Daaaad, that’s my question — you’re supposed to answer it! I’d like an iPad, a new phone, or a puppy. So what would it be?
LL: I think it’s obvious we grew up in different neighborhoods. I would take you out for ice cream.
The NCIS: Los Angeles star is also the father to son Najee, 21, and daughters Italia, 20, and Samaria, 16.
