Chloe x Halle Spill The Life Advice They Got From Beyoncé

Chloe x Halle and Wyclef Jean stopped by the TRL studio and kept it ~100~ about the power of collaborations and partnerships with other artists. So, uh, does either of them want to be my mentor??

Coming from a position that virtually nobody else in the world could relate to, Chloe x Halle shared what it’s like to work directly with and get guidance from Beyoncé, as the duo is signed to her label. The most important part, according to Bey? Wait for the world to catch up and don’t dumb yourself down for anyone. Chloe x Halle’s music might not be traditionally mainstream, but that’s perfectly fine because their real fans will find them.

Wyclef Jean also stopped by and told Sway Calloway the story of how DJ Khaled got permission to sample parts of Santana’s “Maria Maria” when putting together “Wild Thoughts,” last year’s summer smash that featured Rihanna and Bryson Tiller. I think I just lost count of how many legends were involved in the making of one hit song! TRL airs on weekdays at 8:00am ET!

Holiday Advice From Our Resident Recluse

I was invited to a holiday party where I’ll know the host, but not many other people there. Any tried and true tactics on how to enter a conversation gracefully? Or start one up with a stranger?

Honestly, I’d just stay home if I were you. Why would you go to this? Even if you manage to start talking to someone they’ll excuse themselves to go to the bathroom after five minutes so they can go back and talk to their ACTUAL FRIENDS and then you’ll be left alone by the cheese table AGAIN. And what’s worse is your presence there will prevent all the other guests partaking in the lovely assortment of cheese because no one wants to get stuck talking to you and by the time the party’s over even the host will resent you. He bought all the cheese! That no one could eat! Because of you! Save yourself and everyone the pain, I think. Unless you’re really hot—like 9 or 10—then you’ll be fine.

T.I. Shares Advice On Teaching Kids Money Management

By Sowmya Krishnamurthy with reporting by Sway Calloway and Nadeska Alexis

T.I. is a man of many talents. Rapper, actor, author and of course, father to six kids. Tip stopped by “RapFix Live” yesterday and during his visit he dished out some parenting advice on how he keeps his squad on the right path. His advice? Start ‘em from nothing!

The rapper ensures that his kids understand the value of money, despite growing up in luxury. “Start ‘em off from nothing,” he advises. “Those of us who come from nothing, who grew up with less, the one thing we do is try to afford all of our kids the things that we didn’t have. That’ s wonderful thing to do. However, when we do that, we have to make sure that we instill the values and principles that come along with us acquiring the things we now have.” He warns, “[If] we get to giving, they get to expecting.”

T.I. wants to make sure his kids, who star with him on the reality show T.I. & Tiny’s: The Family Hustle, have a strong work ethic and are not merely over-privileged. “That’s nobody’s fun,” he says.

You can catch T.I., Tiny and their kids in “T.I. & Tiny: Holiday Hustle Special.” In the animated special airing Monday 12/18 at 8PM ET/PT on VH1, the family tries to help Santa and save Christmas.
