Melissa says Billie "needs" her.
Before Melissa McCarthy takes over as host on NBC's Little Big Shot (replacing Steve Harvey) she's warming up as a guest host on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. For the recent episode that sees the Bridesmaids actress sitting in Ellen's chair, she expressed her love for Billie Eilish and detailed how much she wants to go on tour with the singer.
"My dream is really to go on tour with her, or just lay down a track – I think that’s what the kids are saying now,” she told the audience. “I think every super-cool seventeen-year-old musician needs a 48-year-old Midwestern mother of two as her hype man.”
To show her honest appreciation for the artist, even more, Melissa edited herself in Billie's "bad guy" music video copying some of the excursions Billie gets up to in the clip.
As for Melissa's new hosting gig that will take over Steve's position, the Think Like A Man author is ready for a new chapter in his life.
“This is good, though, man. You gotta understand how it works,” he said told his fans.
“See, your life ain’t nothing but a book. I happen to be 62-years-old. I am in the middle of my 62nd chapter… Had some good chapters, had some bad chapters. Had some chapters that lasted a little bit longer than I wanted to. That homeless chapter way too long, … But in this 62nd chapter, I got my finger on the corner of the page. All I’m doing is I’m about to turn it. I can’t wait to see what God got for me on that other page.”
