In a shockingly candid interview with Complex Magazine this week, Public Enemy hype man/activist turned reality show star Flavor Flav discloses some eyebrow-raising answers to Complex's admittedly "offbeat" line of questions, including tales of childhood pranks of eating boogers and dog feces, as well as losing his virginity at age six:
Complex: So what's the best trick you ever played on someone?
Flavor Flav: The best trick I ever played on someone was putting tacks on my teacher's seat, and when she came to chase me out the class I had a string over the door, I jumped over the string, and she tripped over it and fell in the hallway. She fucked her face on the wall.
Complex: How much trouble you get in for that one?
Flavor Flav: Honestly, I got suspended for three weeks. And my mom beat me when I got home.
Complex: What was the worst trick someone ever played on you?
Flavor Flav: Umm, the worst trick someone ever played on me was when someone put a booger in my hamburger and I ate it.
Complex: How you find out?
Flavor Flav: Nah, I'll tell you the truth okay… For the person that put the booger on my hamburger, I got him back by taking some dog shit and putting it on the Ritz Crackers and he ate that shit.
Complex: [Laughs] So was he tight?
Flavor Flav: Was he pissed? He was shitted for reals! (Laughs) Yea, forreal G. He put a booger on my hamburger so I got him with thinking peanut butter cookie sandwich it was dog shit.
Complex: Where did you lose your virginity?
Flavor Flav: Where did I lose my virginity? I lost my virginity in the bushes on a box.
Flavor Flav: Yea, in the bushes on a box. A girl and me were having sex on a box in the bushes, in some big tall bushes.
Complex: How uh…when was this?
Flavor Flav: This was when I was real, real, real, real, young.
Complex: Like elementary school? Or middle school?
Flavor Flav: Nah, I'm a tell you the truth; I lost my virginity when I was 6 years old.
Flavor Flav: Yea, man. Because you know we learned to have done the nasty back in the days, and me and this girl we experiment, we were experimenting, and my little joint got hard, I penetrated for about a few seconds.
Complex: I respect that. Early start my man.
Flavor Flav: That's right early start and guess what and I have a great finish right now. [Laughs] Yessir!
