1x1.trans Denzel Washington Covers GQ October Issue + Talks Whitney Houston & Obama!

On his first memory of being onstage:
“I was around 7, 8, whatever I was. We did a talent show at the Boys Club. Me and another guy, Wayne Bridges—God rest his soul—he’s the father of Chris Bridges, Ludacris. We decided to be the Beatles. So we went to John’s Bargain Store and bought fake guitars and wigs and did ‘I Want to Hold Your Hand.’”

On whether he has any code he lives by:
“I read from the Bible every day, and I read my Daily Word. I read something great yesterday. It said, ‘Don’t aspire to make a living. Aspire to make a difference.’”

On having said that he once felt himself being filled with the Holy Spirit:
“That was thirty years ago, at the church I still attend. The minister was preaching, ‘Just let it go.’ I said, I’m going to go with it.’ And I had this tremendous physical and spiritual experience. It did frighten me. I was slobbering, crying, sweating. My cheeks blew up. I was purging. It was too intense. It almost drove me away. I called my mother, and she said I was being filled with the Holy Spirit. I was like, ‘Does that mean I can never have wine again?’”

On how he felt when Whitney Houston died:
“Whitney was my girl, and she had done so well in recovery. And that is the toughest part about addiction.”

On how he thinks Obama fits in now:
“Well, the story’s not told yet. He’s in the beginning of the third quarter. I don’t know what his legacy is yet. He’s the first—that’s a part of it. Like Jackie Robinson. But it just wasn’t the first game; it was lasting the whole thing.”

1x1.trans WTF: American Gangster Frank Lucas Caught Stealing Social Security Payments!

The ending of “American Gangster,” the movie about a Harlem heroin kingpin starring Denzel Washington, might need a rewrite.

Frank Lucas, who once ran a billion-dollar business smuggling heroin before going straight, could go to jail for bilking the U.S. government out of $17,300.

Now 81 and ailing, Lucas was charged with theft by deception after he allegedly told the U.S. Treasury he lost a Social Security check with funds earmarked for his 15-year-old son and asked for a duplicate, prosecutors said.
