READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
Looking ahead to this weekend's GRAMMY's, hip-hop star and multiple award winner LL Cool J sat down with Piers Morgan for an entertaining and insightful interview. This year's host of the award show spoke not only about music, but also his views on the future of the country: "I think in order to keep America great, we have to keep America creative," he told Piers Morgan. "I don't think that anything great in this nation has ever happened without creation, whether it's the Wright Brothers or it's what Bill Gates has done, or, rest in peace, what Steve Jobs did."
Using his own creativity, LL Cool J captured the 1992 GRAMMY FOR "Mama Said Knock You Out." More than 20 years later, he's focused on maintaining balance and eliminating barriers amongst the classes:
"You have one group of people that are wearing all white and playing cricket," he explains. "Then you have another crew that's playing it on the sidewalk, you know they're play Scully on the sidewalk – Google that – you know, and, you know, they can't relate to each other, but there is a middle ground."
Tune in to "Piers Morgan Tonight" at 9pm ET/PT as the music legend talks about his inspiration growing up, and gives Piers advice on women.
