Not the first and hopefully not the last time that the wisdom of R&B charmer Lloyd graces our digital pages. A couple of weeks back, we let people know which Guns N' Roses song piqued his interest most after he got that huge tattoo on the back of his head. As his performance next Tuesday at West Palm Beach's Cruzan Amphitheatre as part of Lil Wayne's "I Am Still Music Tour" approaches, County Grind spoke at length with Lloyd for this week's main print music feature about his charming new album, King of Hearts.
On that topic, he came back with the jovial remark: "I hope you enjoy listening to the album as much as I hated making it."
In any case, he does not hate making love. And there's quite a bit of proof in his words featured below that the man has room in his royal heart for more than one of the women in the world. Let's just say that he might have the heart of two and a half men.
New Times: I've got one more question to get you going here: Do you think it's truly possible to love two women at once?
rather natural to love two women at once. I mean, how hard is it to
really, really commit to one person, to one thing, to one idea? If we
compare ourselves to animals in the wild, then how many animals just
stay with one person forever? There are a few, but lions, tigers, and
those kinds of animals, they don't just marry one other lioness forever.
I think that as humans who have brains, who have reasoning, who have
choice, whereas animals are instinctive and have to do what they're made
to do, I think that it is possible to do anything that you put your
mind towards. If to love is to learn, then I'm sure it's feasible. Hell,
Charlie Sheen lives with his girl and his dimepiece still. If Charlie
Sheen can do it, well, fuck it.
Brilliant. Read the rest of our conversation with Lloyd here.
