Sarah Palin and Sportsman Channel host breakfast during the 2014 Winter Television Critics Association tour at the Langham Hotel on January 10, 2014 in Pasadena, California
*“I’m glad to be here because I love critics.”
This is what Sarah Palin said with a straight face this morning during the Sportsman Channel’s presentation at the Television Critics Association Press Tour in Pasadena.
“And you know how much I love the media,” she continued. “So a room full of media and television critics together? I can’t beat this combination.”
She didn’t bust out the wink, but the former governor of Alaska went on to plug her new show on the network, “Amazing America with Sarah Palin,” a series that will feature people across the U.S. who are connected to the outdoor lifestyle.

*Lil Wayne sat down with MTV’s Sway Calloway to promote his upcoming special “MTV2 Presents: Lil Wayne Unplugged,” premiering Sunday (June 12) at 9 p.m. ET/PT on MTV2, MTV and MTV.com.
In the clip below, the rapper explains his reasons for performing the set without including any special guests.
“If you ever go to a Lil Wayne show, you’ll see he, as in I, don’t bring nobody onstage unless they are Young Money,” Weezy said.
“If they are not Young Money and they are just an artist that I’ve done a song with and they’re in the town that night and they ask, ‘Can I come out?’ Say, ‘Yeah,’ ” he said. “But if you go to a Lil Wayne show and you’re a real Lil Wayne fan, you’ll know: He’s up there from start to finish by his self.”
Part of Weezy’s hesitation to bring others onstage dates back to his early days as one-fourth of the Hot Boys with Juvenile, B.G. and Turk.
“Ain’t have nobody screamin’ over the mic with me. I just never been about that because I was always in a group with three other guys when I was comin’ up,” Tunechi said.
For all of the reasons he gives, in the end, Wayne is just a little bit selfish, and after releasing eight solo albums, nine official mixtapes and selling more than 10 million copies, who can blame him? “I also don’t bring a lot of people up there because, simple and plain, this is ‘MTV Unplugged,’ and this is Lil Wayne’s ‘MTV Unplugged,’ ” he said.
