The Time Rashida Jones Dumped Robin Thicke for Al B. Sure


Quincy Jones' daughter Rashida recalls the time she dumped R&B singer Robin Thicke for Al B. Sure…

Rashida tells Beats 1 Radio on Apple Music,
"I was 12, 13. His (Thicke's) dad was on Growing Pains and my mom was on Twin Peaks at the same time so we met at an ABC party and we flirted and exchanged numbers, landlines obviously."
"I called him and asked him to come to junior high prom with me. And then for whatever reason, I don't remember this, he reminded me of this a few years ago, I called him back and said, 'I'm so sorry. You can't come with me because Al B. Sure is actually coming with me.'"
The gag is that Rashida admits Al B. was just being nice by saying yes and didn't end up going with her, leaving Rashida with no date and working the Junior Prom door!

What? I'm lost right now. Are we supposed to really be moved by her rendition of how nice of a guy Robin is and feel bad for him? Foh rich bitch. This was a PR fail!

Rashida is interesting. I just watched her interview with Sam Cooke...the guy who does the black and white interviews if the name is wrong....she picks interesting moments to embrace her blackness to the public. I love her wry, quirky wit but she doesn't seem as authentic as she claims.

So...is she going to address that rumor about Will Smith and Quincy Jones (and what Tupac allegedly wouldn't do to get put on?)

When she or her sister comment on that, I'll have the cheddar popcorn handy and listen intently.

Damn the only thing remotely black about her is her bottom lip.

She wouldn't be an actress if it weren't for her famous parents. Always does the same sarcastic smirk in every role. Hell, she's even doing it in the pic above! Zzzzzzzzzz
