Watch Ad-Rock Of The Beastie Boys Give Excellent Advice On Rookie’s “Ask A Grown Man” Series

While MCA will forever have legend status (RIP), Ad-Rock has always been my favorite Beastie Boy. (No disrespect to Mike D, BTW, who is awesome as well and it’s not like I would ever call him my least favorite Beastie, there’s no such thing.) His rhymes were my favorite, he’s been married or involved with super cool women (ex-wife Ione Skye and current longterm GF Kathleen Fucking Hanna, for example), and come on, he’s obvs the cutest. So I was psyched to see him as the latest dude advice giver on Rookie’s excellent “Ask A Grown Man” series. As expected, his advice — to teen girls, but whatever, I could totally relate — is spot-on, whether he’s pumping up a girl who’s nervous about her first kiss (“Go ahead and do it! It doesn’t have to be a full make-out, just a quick one!”), doling out suggestions for how to dump someone (“Blame it on your parents”) or suggesting how to cope on bad days (“think about the thing that makes you happiest, and do that”).
