PornHub has already become a hot (some might say very hot) spot to premiere music videos -- just ask Xiu Xiu and FaltyDL -- and the next person to (sort of) follow suit will be a man of great hair, a misspelled Juggalo tattoo, and a standout on the Space Jam soundtrack, Coolio.
Earlier this week, TMZ reported that Coolio had actually signed to PornHub and would be releasing music there, but Coolio since clarified to Rolling Stone that's not actually the case. The video will just be a new PornHub ad that features Coolio in it. Here's what he said when Rolling Stone asked about TMZ's story:
Hold up. They made that shit up completely. I didn't talk to them about shit and they didn't ask me any questions. That shit was a fuckin' promo song for the website. That's it! I met some executive from Pornhub while he was out [in Las Vegas] for the AVNs. We hung out; he was cool. He asked me to do a song for Pornhub and that was it. It's not even my song that I'm putting out. I'm never doing a new album. I'll probably do nothing but singles. I'm as good as anybody out there lyrically and conceptually and can go toe to toe with the best of them throughout history. But I don't know how much longer I'll be doing it. It's not really fun anymore.And while we're at it, here's another quote from the interview that's too good not to include:
I don't even watch porn, bro. You know why?You tell 'em, Coolio.
Because I am fuckin' porn. Why should I watch somebody do something that I could be doing? That doesn't make sense to me. If I want to see porn, I'll fuckin' put a mirror next to my bed. There's 7 billion people on the planet, right? If that's so, then I'm one of the world's 1 million greatest lovers. I'm totally unselfish. I don't give a shit about myself. I'm all about my partner. I'm a pleaser. You can ask any woman I've ever been with and they'll tell you, "He's the motherfucker."
