Chris Rock interviews are always a treat and a good source of insight with sprinkles of comedy throughout. In his latest Q&A with Details, the comedian talks why he disagrees with Bill Cosby on Travyon Martin, why credit is bad for you, what he feels killed Whitney Houston, and why Eddie Murphy may never tour again.
Check out the excerpts below:
DETAILS: Is it too soon to make George Zimmerman-Trayvon Martin jokes?
Chris Rock: There’s no joke there, unfortunately. It’s sad. When you get old, it’s like, “Damn it, I’ve seen this.” I’m from Bed-Stuy. I marched for Yusuf Hawkins, you know? I don’t totally agree with Bill Cosby. He said it wasn’t racial, it’s a gun issue. Well, it’s a gun-racial issue. You know what makes you approach a six-foot-three black guy in the middle of the night? A gun. Paul Blart’s not supposed to have a gun.
DETAILS: You’re working on a documentary called Credit Is the Devil. Why that topic?
Chris Rock: Because credit is the devil. Dude, I’m rich—and I live in fucking Jersey. I had two cars in 1996, and I got two cars now. I live way below my means.
DETAILS: That’s sad. What did you think when you heard about Whitney Houston’s death?
Chris Rock: I’d known Whitney a little bit. She’s not dead because she was an addict. She’s dead because she was an addict who kept getting money. Chris Farley’s dead because he was an addict with 50 grand in his pocket.
DETAILS: Do you think Murphy will ever tour again?
Chris Rock: Barring financial ruin, I don’t think so. I think we’ll see a Richard Pryor hologram on tour before we see Eddie Murphy.
DETAILS: Does it bum you out to see him in less-than-successful films?
Chris Rock: We all do stuff that doesn’t work. It bums me out when I’m at his house and he’s making a bunch of people laugh and it’s so effortless. His Obama impression? Amazing.
DETAILS: What’s the secret to making a marriage work?
Chris Rock: I don’t know any more than anybody else. You’ve just gotta want to be there.
