LL: I'm Steroid and Surgery Free

From Jeff Davidson's Sound Bytes blog

38-year-old LL Cool J still has the looks of a twenty-something.  His sculpted abs are nearly as famous as his rhymes. But, some have accused the Long Island born rapper of cosmetically or otherwise enhancing his appearance.  In an interview with Ebony magazine, LL hits back at the haters:

"There have been a lot of questions, a lot of speculation. To be real frank, there are so many people speculating over what they think that I am doing. Is he doing steroids? Did he get plastic surgery?" he says. "It speaks more about the people who are making comments than it does about me. It tells me that they cheat and they're cheaters. They are not willing to make the sacrifices necessary, and go through the pain necessary, in order to get in the best shape they can possibly be. So they don't believe I would be willing to do it either. So it is really more about their weakness, and less about mine. It doesn't make me feel anything other than that it is unfortunate that people are weak like that. They are weak. It points out their flaws."

Come on now...you know you don't mess with no LL!  The entire interview is in the July Ebony and LL is on tour now in support of his latest release "Todd Smith."
