Lil Wayne added yet another stop on the strangest press tour since Rod Blagojevich’s last night, dropping by David Letterman’s Late Show to offer the Top Ten reasons he’s looking forward to the Grammys. Since this list was scripted by Letterman’s sub-hilarious writers, instead of, say, being free-associated off the dome by the New Orleans Nightmare himself – major missed opportunity! – there were maybe two entries that elicited anything resembling a LOL from me. I’m talking about No. 8 (“I’m nominated in the category of ‘Lillest Wayne,’”) and the one about how Weezy finds the Jonas Brothers “adorable.” Letterman and Paul Shaffer, meanwhile, seemed thoroughly bemused by their guest, though they sure did enjoy the “joke” about crab cakes shaped like Beyonce’s anatomy. Check out the whole bizarre encounter below. I will admit that seeing this has helped me get psyched for Wayne’s Grammy performance…as long as Letterman’s staff has nothing to do with it.
