With a highly-anticipated Smackdown show set to go down next Tuesday (October 23) at Newark, New Jersey’s Prudential Center, WWE champion Becky Lynch took a moment from her Devils WWE Night Thursday (October 18) to chop it up with SOHH about everything from her rise to the top to naming the Cardi B of her sport.

1. Who – is the Cardi B of the WWE?

The Cardi B of the WWE. She talks a lot, right? Flexes a lot. But has the numbers to back it up. Talks a lot. Has the numbers to back it up. Flexes a lot. That sounds like the camp. That sounds like the champ. I don’t know though. I don’t know. Because I have a different swagger about me. I want to answer this properly. Who would be the Cardi B? Maybe Carmella. Maybe Carmella. She talks a lot. She flexes a lot. She says she’s money. I mean, isn’t that Cardi B kinda says? Things like that? Kind of? A little? Alright, let’s give it to Carmella.

2. What – is your go-to pre-match food?

I love grapes. There are so many grapes. Have you had cotton candy grapes? There’s these things called cotton candy grapes and they’re amazing. They taste like cotton candy. Then there’s the moon grapes. Have you seen them? They’re the lengthy grapes. There’s a whole world of grapes out there. THe other day, I had these little grapes and they tasted like grape jelly. There’s this sugar explosion but they’re just regular grapes. They’re real. Probably genetically modified grapes but my goodness were they delicious. The champs likes a lot of grapes. She likes the antioxidants of grapes. It’s not that she’s a wino and she can’t wait, no, she likes the grapes. And in catering there’s always lots of good, fresh fruit and I don’t know. I like something there’s very light. I try not to eat very much during the day when I’m wrestling. But I need a little energy. I’ll pop a few grapes into my mouth.

3. Where – do you find yourself with the whole WWE Evolution?

Where do I see myself in it? I see myself as the real main event, whether I am actually the main event, people know that I am the real main event. I see myself Charlotte Flair laying on the ground. She’s not standing up. She’s going to be left for dead and I’m going to be the last woman standing.

4. When – did you realize this was your passion? When did you realize WWE was your calling?

I was actually wrestling for two years when I was 15. I started wrestling when I was 15. I didn’t go with the intention of being the WWE superstar because I didn’t believe it was an attainable goal. How does a girl who has failed PE and being a little bit of a chubby kid her whole life go on to be a WWE superstar? But I loved it. There was nothing that gave me such drive and such purpose. After two years of just wrestling and trying my hardest, getting better at something and dedicating myself to something for the first time in my life, I was like, ‘Ah, no, this is really what I want to do.’

5. Why – is right now the Becky Lynch takeover?

I have been the underdog and overlooked for far too long. I have been the carrier of the division. I have carried every single person through that division. I have been a stepping stone for people to use to make a name for themselves. I’m sick of that. I finally got enough belief in myself to say, ‘No. I’m not being a stepping stone for anybody.’ I’m being on the top. I’m the top dog and I’m taking it and I’m not waiting for anybody’s permission. I’m not asking anybody for permission and I’m not asking anybody for forgiveness either. This is my time. I’m claiming it. I own this and I deserve this.

Quincy Jones Claims Ray Charles Got Him Addicted to Heroin at 15

Quincy Jones made headlines recently when he did a rare interview with Vulture and spilled all the tea. Jones was busy again on Wednesday, when he sat down with Scott Feinberg for the most recent episode of the Awards Chatter podcast. In a wide-ranging interview, the legendary musician, composer and producer revealed that Ray Charles got him hooked on heroin when he was 15.

Jones, who was there to talk about his upcoming biopic, Quincy, said that he met Charles in Seattle when they were teenagers. Noting that drug use “goes with bebop,” Jones explained how he first encountered heroin.

“He got me hooked for five months at 15,” he said before laying out a typical night for Seattle’s soon-to-be superstar musicians. “After we finished at the Washington Social Club and a couple of other ones, we’d all go down to Jackson Street to the Elks Club. That’s where all the bebop jam sessions were. Nobody got paid. We didn’t give a damn.”

“When they finished playing they’d go over in the corner and they had it on their thumb,” he continued. “I just snuck in the line and got me a little hit.”

Jones included that when the band he played with made trips to New York, they purchased their heroin from a Harlem hustler named Detroit Red, also called Malcolm X.

While returning home one evening, he fell down five flights of stairs. Quincy Jones lost the urge to use while he was recovering and the time spent laid up kept him away from some of jazz’s most notorious drug abusers.

“The mistakes are what help you grow and learn,” he said. [If I hadn’t fallen.] I would have been in New York, where I was hanging out with Charlie Parker. I would have been a junkie forever. Bird was always high. Thank god we did it and got it over with.”

Listen to the whole interview over at The Hollywood Reporter.
