Tiffany Haddish sat in for Ellen DeGeneres on the Friday (November 20) episode of her daytime talk show and spoke with Ludacris about the news that Fast & Furious is coming to an end.
"Man, they just announced that. We’re gonna end on 10 and 11,” the star said via Zoom. “Me personally, I thought we were going to end on 10. But I’m not at all sad about it. ‘Cause you gotta think about it: I came out in 2 Fast 2 Furious, we never knew we were gonna get a call back for [Fast & Furious] 5. Now I been in 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. And now they’re telling me there’s gonna be two more? I’m happy!"
Luda went on to emphasize those final sentiments, reiterating, "To hell with being sad — be happy!"
Afterwards, Haddish spoke to the star about his new KidNation project, which is set to educate youth about current events through music. Always the comedian, Haddish pivoted from the topic a bit to pitch Luda her own rap song about following rules. "Eat your veggies, or no dessert/ Talk back to me and you’ll get hurt," she rapped.
Elsewhere during her hosting stint, Haddish spoke about assisting her boyfriend Common on the set of his photoshoot for PEOPLE's new Sexiest Man Alive issue. "The day that I found out that he was gonna be in this, I showed up to his house, he had exercise equipment all outside," Haddish recalled. "I came in and there’s a barber, a makeup artist — I was like, ‘What’s going on?' He like, ‘I got Sexiest Man Alive.' I said, 'The sexiest man? The sexiest man alive?’ He like, ‘Well, I’m one of the sexiest men alive.’ I’m like, ‘You my sexiest man alive, but we gonna have to do something about those abs.'"
