Rocsi Diaz Wears Tasty Edible Bikini, Kanye Reveals What Career He Almost Chose, Drake Pulls Out Late?
Finally Friday. It’s finally the best day of the week, so why not get things started with Rocsi Diaz wearing an outfit you can actually eat? It looks like Kanye West is eating well in the music biz but could he have almost chose a different career path? Speaking of big careers, did Drake hurt his by pulling out of something late? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. The Veggie Way
It looks like everyone is focused on eating better and while she might not be vegan-ready, former “106 & Park” host Rocsi Diaz is pushing the vegetarian diet to her fans. Necole Bitchie is on it:
Earlier this week, it was announced that Jay Z and Beyonce were going vegan for 22 days leading up to Christmas, and now Entertainment Tonight’s Rocsi Diaz is promoting vegetarianism by posing for PETA’s holiday campaign.
Wearing nothing but a bikini made out of brussels sprouts, Rocsi poses in her second PETA ad while dishing on how she decided to ditch the meat back in college.
”[I] physically felt cleaner and lighter.[...]Later on, literally I saw somebody eating a chicken wing, and it grossed me out. … My body was, like, ‘No more. I don’t want it anymore.’” (Necole Bitchie)
If women could pull this same move off for their men, the entire world would probably go vegetarian, right? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
2. Close Call
Kanye West has really made sure art reflected in his career, whether it’s album covers or even how he dresses in public. It turns out he really does have a deep interest in art and would have pursued that career if it weren’t for something the music gave him instead. Rolling Stone is on it:
Kanye West has made great effort to position himself as an artbiter of art and design recently, highlighting the influence of Swiss architect Le Corbusier on Yeezus and comparing himself to performance artist Marina Abramovic in interviews. The rapper and producer elaborated on these aesthetic influences on Wednesday night during a talk with architect Jacques Herzog at the Moore Building in Miami’s Design District, as a part of the city’s Art Basel festivities happening this week. “My original creative background was fine art,” West said. “By the time I was 14, I was in national competitions for art, and I actually went to school for art. Sometimes I actually forget that. Except for when I tour and I look back at the stage and say, ‘Wait a second, I forgot this was the whole trick I pulled on everyone to make them think I was a rapper, a musician or celebrity when the entire time it’s all been a giant art project.’”
Could Kanye West have been as successful in the art world as he is in the music game? Is there any reason you would think he wouldn’t? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
3. Last-Minute Pull Out
It looks like Drake’s going to be breaking the hearts of a lot of people tonight after deciding he could not be involved in the annual Grammy Nominations Concert. After winning his first Grammy last year, does that mean he probably doesn’t care as much? TMZ has info:
Drake has pulled himself out of tomorrow’s big Grammy Nominations Concert in L.A., TMZ has learned … and it’s all because the guy claims he’s got a last minute “scheduling conflict.”
The show had been promoting the rapper as one of their big acts since October … but a rep for Drake tells TMZ something came up, and now he won’t be able to attend.
“Unfortunately, due to scheduling complications, Drake will no longer be performing … [he's] currently in the middle of his nationwide ‘Would You Like A Tour?’ and sincerely apologizes to his fans that he can’t be there.”
According Drake’s website, he’s not scheduled to perform anywhere on Dec. 6th … though he does have a show the following day in Missouri.
So, why the sudden conflict? We asked the rep … but didn’t get an explanation.
Don’t fear, Grammy fans … Lorde, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift have all been added to the lineup within the last 24 hours. (TMZ)
Is there any chance Drake will really come through and surprise everyone with a performance? What could the scheduling conflict really be about? Is Rihanna going to be at the Grammy Nominations event? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
