Morris Day on Wendy Williams - absolute car crash TV interview! [link in thread]

WTAF just happened....Wendy just made a total ass of herself & came across like a sex crazed / TMZ / National enquirer hack. Morris tried his best to handle it & steer it away from her incessant Q's about P being a control freak, "the drugs" etc. Interesting that he mentioned the state are dicking him around on the $ !!

Not a shock, Wendy is a garbage person. However, I was a little surprised to see that Morris seemed willing to go low with her on some of those questions.

What some people won't do for attention shake Wendy is pure trash and I'm glad I didn't spend that $35 for Morris's book.

You can tell that she is not a fan of Prince, The Time and Many Artists she gossiped about on the Radio and her gossip TV show over the years!

On her Halloween show 2018, WW fell while she was talking, maybe she was on "Drugs" that day?

You must have never seen Wendy's show before. lol When Wendy had a radio show, Whitney Houston threatened to beat her up. Also you should see the video that Method Man (from Wu Tang Clan) made to hear what he thinks about Wendy. He was not happy at all. Wendy talks trash about people all the time and tries to out celebrities who are in the closet. She also gives "advice" to famous people, who are probably not watching her show in the first place. I've never watched her show on purpose, but I've been places where people had it on. I don't even watch the interviews with people I like.

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

Wendy is terrible lol in the 90s,she was implying that P.Diddy and Mase were having a secret romance.It's easy to see why many celebrities refused to speak to her,lol.

Um, so… wow. I heard 3 things in this interview that are new to me:

  1. Morris indicates that Prince had “Napoleon Complex”, and;
  2. Prince and Morris smoked weed and did mushrooms as a "one-time thing" when they were kids.
  3. Prince regularly underpaid Morris, according to Morris. e.g. $50K for Purple Rain.

Generally, I’m not surprised by Wendy’s questions. I am pretty surprised at some of the things that Morris said. This entire discussion felt weird because, you know… they are saying these things about Morris’ lifelong friend… and… Prince is no longer with us.

Is it me?

Morris thinks he was underpaid for Purple Rain.Vanity left the project because she also wanted more money.

I think that Morris was talking about money for "Drama". He is a Sagittarius, that sign is not materialistic!

And, a True Fan would have asked him: "So...Did you make more or less money for the "Graffiti Bridge" Movie? 😉

Yeah,Prince and his managers put up the $7 million that it took to make the movie.So nobody in the film were going to be paid like movie stars,lol.Vanity claimed that she was offered $350,000 to do ‘The Last Dragon’ and it was obviously hard to turn down an offer like that,lol

Morris said he was paid $50,000. and Pince $17 million. I may have had some feelings about that as well. Morris was essentially one of the 2 leads.

But, as we know, there was already bad blood between the two...

I don't think Morris said anything disrespectful.

Her flippant comment about the pills was fucking nauseating and completely unnecessary. I used to watch every now and then to kill time, but those days are over. Have some fucking respect.

Prince out up his own money. Prince was the lead and without him this movie never would've happened, so Morris needs to sthu and he grateful Prince let him be a part of that whole experience in the first place.

Wait we are shocked? She did this during the Mayte interview, she is trash, she looks like it and she is it. Cannot believe she still is even on tv but then again, crap like this is why we get shows land things like a TMZ better known as the moron zone. I get what he is saying about the estate however don't sell a book and tour and do paisley gigs etc...because that to my friend is something he never would have allowed. As for Wendy get more plastic surgery.

And to further this, Morris u are cool, but if not for Prince you'd still be making 35 dollars in a club. His success was everyone's coat tail success, like it or not I don't care how talented any of y'all are, you were unknown before him and when it died down no one was looking for you.

Wendy's show is like a celebrity talk show but for the Jerry Springer/José Luis/Maury Povich audience. I never understand how she gets people to come on her show, when she often says bad things about them. When they appear on her show she tries to get them to tell dirt (aka "tea") on themselves or another celeb, especially if there's a fued.

Wendy was being Wendy...always looking for the dirt. I remember her when she was a DJ on WBLS in NY and she hasn’t changed. I didn’t know about the weed and mushrooms when Morris and Prince were kids, or the estate trying to withhold money. I think Morris is a sweetie. I read and enjoyed his book, and I think he genuinely loves Prince. They certainly had their bumps in the road and it wasn’t an easy ride. I’m glad he had closure with Prince. That’s more than a lot of his associates can say.

Is she even coherent? She jumps topics like she is either senile drunk or just plain high. Not shocked she is a dirt chaser if you consider a real interviewer y'all high
