Q Would you rather not have Howard Stern ask such personal questions?
A I don’t care. I’ll talk to Howard Stern about anything. I listen to him every day. I love him. When you go on his show, you kind of have to be an open book.
Q In your book “Man Up,” you said you learned how to swear like a trucker. String together a few for me. I want to judge how convincing you sound, because I don’t believe you talk like that.
A I do talk like that. I’ve earned the right to talk like that. I learned from my father how to swear RIGHT and how to string it together for optimum effect/affect. I use it like karate. I bring it out when it’s needed.
Q What makes you swear like a trucker?
A A good joke.
Q ‘Hello, Ross’ is what fans say to you, but what do you say when you meet Diana Ross?
A Oh my God, I would love to meet Diana Ross. I’d say, ‘Hello, Miss Ross if you’re nasty.’ It’s a Janet Jackson [reference].
