A.J.: I've been flashed from stage. It happened in London. This girl was watching me when I was singing 'Return of the Mack' and then she reached up under her shirt and made me lose my concentration. Then she pulled her bra out, screamed my name, and whipped up her t-shirt and showed me her breasts. I forgot the words and I stopped singing. I was like, 'you lied to me' and then I saw the breasts and I was like 'Oh.'
A.J.: When I see an attractive girl what's the first thing I look at? Do you want me to be honest, or do you want me to lie? If she's looking at me, then it's her eyes. But if she's not looking at me then, erm...her booty. I watch it go from side to side...yeah, I know, I'm a man. I'm sorry.
