Dave Chappelle Lands On GQ’s “Man Of The Year” Cover

Since leaving the spotlight in 2005 at the peak of his Chappelle Show success, comedian Dave Chappelle has left many wondering how someone on top of the world could just walk away from it all.

After jumping back on the stand-up circuit, it seems as if the famed comic is finally back. After being placed on GQ Magazine’s December “Man of the Year” cover, the comic sat down to discuss why he left, his thoughts on Donald Sterling, life in Ohio, the state of his friendship with Chappelle Show co-writer Neal Brennan and more.

Available nationally on November 25, read below for a few quotes from the interview:

Via GQ:

“You know, for a while, I was kind of sequestered. Well, sequestered is not the right word. It was more like Superman’s self-imposed exile. People are always like, ‘I heard you moved to Africa.’ And in reality I was only there for about two weeks.”

“I have a show-business bucket list. There’s just certain things that every entertainer always dreamed of doing. When I was 19, I used to walk up Sixth Avenue and look at the marquee of Radio City. I’d see the lines outside. I’d be like ‘Man, I just want to…Radio City!’…It just so happened the venue was open during the same time frame I was willing to play.”  “For one year, I want to do this thing where I guest-star on as many television shows as I possibly can,” he explains. “I’d be a zombie on The Walking Dead. A corpse on CSI. I’d be the first black guy to fuck Olivia Pope on Scandal…”

“The fact that television ultimately made me famous was very gratifying for me. Chris Tucker did it in movies and Chris Rock did it from his stand-up, which was very impressive. But you know, the thing that people most will remember me for is Chappelle’s Show. If I were to never do anything else, that show would be a culmination of what was a very long and tedious process of me learning how to be in the television business.”

NFL Star Dumps Hot Girlfriend for Being Too Popular

Lindsey Duke was the talk of the NFL Combines over the summer. No, Lindsey is not a football player; Lindsay was the hot girlfriend of rookie Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles, who received more attention from the media and football fans than he did.

The NY Post Post explains that Bortles split from his longtime girlfriend because she was the “bigger celebrity of the two during NFL Draft coverage in the spring.”

According to the Post, NFL executives were eager to meet Bortles sexy girlfriend — and they told him so to his face. “If we come to town, will she be there for dinner?” Bortles said one NFL exec asked him in a pre-draft meeting.

Bortles was not amused when his coach at Central Florida, George O’Leary, said Lindsey was deserving of “six million Googles.”

Because he’s a man Bortles asked Lindsey to tone down her bikini posting pastime on Instagram. When that didn’t lessen the interest from other men, Bortles asked his girlfriend to take her Instagram private — or shut it down altogether.

Lindsey complied by taking her Instagram private — but it was too late to save their relationship.

Other celebs such as R&B Diva Monica Brown solved the problem of groupies secretly messaging her husband, Miami Heat star Shannon Brown, online by asking him to shut down his social media accounts. Being a good husband, Shannon quickly complied.

It is a well-known fact that social media platforms such as Twitter.com, Facebook.com and Instagram.com have become the new pickup spots online.

Particularly on Instagram and Twitter where women exchange intimate photos with other womens’ men through instant messaging.

Some married men have a wife at home and a secret “wifey” on Twitter or Instagram.

Women who allow their husbands to maintain social media accounts online are asking for trouble at home.
