On Kaleidoscope Dream:

 “I really wanted to stretch musically on this song, not only sonically but structurally, and just kind of remind people that R&B has no boundary.” He added, “There’s no rulebook to how R&B is supposed to sound.”

On expressing his emotions and temporary spitting with his model/actress girl Nazanin Mandi:

As comfortable as I am dealing with it in my music, it’s so much harder to do for real. I’m not even going to pretend.” “I was mad young, just wildin’ out,” he recalls, “and she was smart enough to leave, like she should have.”

Kerry Washington’s Sexy Maxim Australia July 2013 Cover

Kerry-Washington-Maxim-Magazine

Kerry Washington sure does know how to get people talking. The Scandal and D’Jango Unchained actress is making the summer hotter by striking a sexy pose in a black blazer, with no shirt or bra (showing her boobs) paired with boy shorts on the July 2013 issue of Maxim Australia. In the cover story, Washington talks about being attracted to the role Broomhilda, D’Jango Unchained, and African-American history. This issue is on sale now. Below are some highlights:

Kerry-Washington-Emmy-Magazine-Spread

What attracted you to the role of Broomhilda?
I wanted to be a part of this incredible project that represents a painful part of US history but also creates a hero out of it. There were people who fought for freedom and rebelled but we don’t hear those stories. This is obviously not a documentary or a true story but it’s exciting to watch Jamie become this badarse cowboy hero.

Revenge tale that it is, there’s also a love story at the core of Django.
Quentin was always saying to Jamie, “Don’t forget, this is a love story.” I think one of the great things about Quentin is that he’s so complicated as a human being. He is so excited about these exploitation films and yet so believes in the real humanity of people. He is so into blood and gore but such a romantic. These seemingly contradictory ideas that he embodies so fluidly are why his films are so great – because he’s paying attention to both of those aspects.

Do you reckon watching this is a decent way to educate people about African-American history?
We don’t deal openly with the reality of what was done. Partly because it’s so uncomfortable. It’s so horrific. It would take a director like Tarantino, who’s not afraid of that level of violence, to even tell the story. It was that bad. We tend to think, “No, that’s just sci-fi fantasy sh-t.” We all should have seen this coming, though. When you kill off Hitler in a movie, your next project is going to be this.
