A Little Flavor In the Afternoon

We were at the Grove today when Flavor Flav leapt out of a giant SUV, wearing a gold crown and — of course — a giant clock around his neck. Remember Public Enemy? Flav doesn’t either.

He was there to shoot a small bit for his VH1 dating show Flavor of Love 2, in which he is introduced to the attention-starved would-be actresses who serve as “contestants.”

He seemed a little embarrassed by the crowd that amassed around him (but, oddly, not that large clock). To compensate, he started clowning around, rushing at his surprised girlfriends-in-waiting with his hands up, shouting, “High fives! High fives!” — marking, we think, the first time a celebrity relationship began with assault.
