Ludacris Loves The Devil Wears Prada & Doesn't Care Who Knows It

Ludacris loves The Devil Wears Prada. That's right, the southern rapper known for bass-banging hits like "What's Your Fantasy", "Move Bitch," and "Stand Up" loves the film that made us anxious about working at a fashion magazine and downright fearful of Meryl Streep. According to Luda, The Devil Wears Prada is about so much more than going to Fashion Week and strutting around the city streets in the latest Chanel boots. "I love that movie. It's not even so much a chick flick," he says in a new interview with Elle. "That's one of my favorite movies of all time, honestly. Period."

He sees it as more than a comedy about the follies of being an assistant, too. "It's about leadership and focus," he argues.

As a successful musician, actor, entrepreneur, newlywed, and father, he's had to do quite a lot of both. The latter title keeps him in check — there's a lot he hopes to teach his 13-year-old daughter. "Independence. Striving for excellence. Her schedule is damn near busier than mine. She'll have piano one day and acting another day and dance another day," he shared. Sounds like she might be following in her father's footsteps.

The interview wasn't entirely serious — the man does call himself Ludacris after all. Toward the end of his chat with the magazine, he let it slip that he has a very special name for a very special body part. He calls his penis The Truth. "Cause you can't handle The Truth." Yup. That happened. (Elle)
