tweeted from their official account. "don't swim or let your kids swim if sick with diarrhea. one person with diarrhea can contaminate the entire pool."

11:55 pm
it's hot, it's hot as hell, let me just say that. [ laughter ] >> wanda: i figured that, good lord. you know, because i'm doing something in august in new mexico. i'm shooting something there. so i will probably just catch on fire. [ laughter ] it's hot now. >> right. you probably will. my advice to you would be to stay your ass inside. [ laughter ] that's pretty much what you need to do. until nighttime. >> wanda: so how was your fourth there? are they allowed to have fireworks? >> oh, 100%. and it actually surprised me. because if you have a house on this mountain, the mountain pretty much overlooks the entire city. so for the first time, you know, i was able to tre's no obstruction of view. so you get to see fireworks from like a 30-mile range, just popping off every single place in the distance. so it was actually pretty enjoyable, i'm going to be honest with you, it was dope. >> wanda: well, that's good. i'm glad you enjoyed that. it sounds -- [ laughter ]
11:56 pm
all right, i guess. >> it was good. i'm trying to make the best of my time. >> wanda: i'm just thinking of how hot -- i'm glad you enjoyed it, man. let's get down to serious business. what's the strip club scene like there? [ laughter ] i'm not asking for me, you know. i don't do those things. but i just, you know. in case a friend wants to know. >> look, when you come down here in august, me and that friend that you're talking about, we'll go there together and figure it out, check it out for ourselves. [ cheers and applause ] >> wanda: oh wait, this is pretty cool. we have a picture of a sign. this was in virginia. where i'm from. "driving fast and furious? that's ludacris." how cool is that, man? >> listen, at first i thought it was a joke. then i found out it was real. and i think, you know, as
11:57 pm
artists, as entertainers, we always want to make art and to do things that are ingrained in popular culture. and that right there just let me know that ludacris and the "fast and furious" franchise are now synonymous to the rest of the world. we are household names. it humbled me, and it makes me across the world that are actually going to put that on a highway to try and get people's attention. [ cheers and applause ] that's love to everybody and beautiful. >> wanda: that is pretty cool. so look, so like when was the last time you got a speeding ticket? [ laughter ] >> you know, being ludacris has its privileges, i will be honest. they pull me over, i show the face card, ask them if they want a signed cd for their kids, and i can get off, as long as i'm not going too fast or too furious, i can get off. [ applause ] >> wanda: seems like the cops pull you over, you go, "come on, man, you know what i do, i'm about this life, you seen the
11:58 pm
movies?"bsut a i do is tell them i'm practicing for the movies, they all fans of the franchise as well. sometimes i just tell them i'm shooting a scene right now while they're pulling me over, that's enough. [ laughter ] >> wanda: so the movies earned over $500 million worldwide. >> $500 million! [ cheers and applause ] in 11 days. >> wanda: pretty awesome. >> yeah. >> wanda: so between us, what's your cut, man? [ laughter ] >> you know, i can't tell you that. but i am going to be honest, like the cut, the price just went up, i'm going to let you know that. $500 million is a lot. i almost charged them to come on here, when i heard you were hosting, i told them we should probably charge wanda and everybody on the "jimmy kimmel live" show because of that. because you're my homie, i didn't do it, i'm not charging wanda. every other interview i do from here on out, i'm charging, that's it. [ laughter ] >> wanda: that's good looking out, good looking out. because you know, if they told
11:59 pm
me i had to pay, i'd have said, that's ludacris! [ applause ] >> i'm sure. >> wanda: so have you had a chance to see the movie yet? like with an audience? >> i have. you know, now is the perfect time to be a celebrity, because you can sneak everywhere with a mask on and nobody bats an eye, looks at you crazy. i have snuck into the movie theaters numerous times, especially here in albuquerque. i sit dead in the middle of the movie theater just to get the real audience experience. and it's absolutely amazing. because think about it. when we were kids, you go see movies, you wonder what it's like to be a movie star. now i'm the person up on screen, and all i can do is thank the most high and all of the fans just for allowing me to be this individual that is able to, you know, just do this art and express myself, and people love and enjoy and live vicariously through these over-the-top action movies that are now at -- i want to say $6 billion accumulated with all the

[ laughter ] >> oh, man, listen. you better be nice to anybody who prepares your food, i'm trying to tell y'all, i'm warning you.
12:01 am
if anybody hears my voice, no matter where you are, you better be nice to anybody that prepares your food. you never know what could happen, period. >> wanda: exactly. look, we'll have more with ludacris after this. >> dicky: portions of "jimmy kimmel live" are brought to you by credit karma money, a rewarding way to spend and save. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪

[ cheers and applause ] oh, oh! >> wanda: oh, man. that's beautiful. you know, you have to see that.

you have to see that in the theater. i don't -- you know, all that stuff blowing up in my house? whoo. [ laughter ] that would upset my liquor bottles, i can't have that. [ laughter ] >> oh my goodness. >> wanda: so later in the movie, you go to space? >> oh, yeah. oh, i went to space before elon musk, before richard branson, before tom cruise, they can all kiss my ass, i did it. [ laughter and applause ] >> wanda: for real, how did they pitch that to you? they said, "so look, you and tyrece, y'all gonna drive to space." [ laughter ] >> let me tell you, first and foremost, we get the script, they don't tell us anything. we have to read the script. every time i read the script i'm making sure that my black ass don't die. [ laughter ] i'm very happy about that. once i get through that. so i stayed alive. then when i saw the scene about us going to space, i'm just, as my name implies, i'm very ludicrous.
12:08 am
i'm thrill seeking, adrenaline junkie. yes, i knew it was going to be the talk of the movie. as you can see, it is. >> wanda: all right. so once you read the script and you said, okay, i do come back from space, then you -- >> yes, i was all in. >> wanda: that would have been my first -- >> 100% okay, yes. >> wanda: yes, first question, am i coming back? >> thank you. >> wanda: the fans online, they are looking for a "fast and furious/jurassic world" mashup. how do you feel about that? >> that's the most ridiculous thing i've heard in my life. [ laughter ] i'm going to be honest with you. they surprised me with a lot of things of how we continue to top ourselves. but nowhere in my right mind do i see "jurassic world" and "fast and furious" coming together. maybe they got to convince me, but i don't see it. that's ludicrous, pun intended. [ laughter ] >> wanda: i'm just reminding you. you're saying it's okay going to
12:09 am
space in a pontiac, but you can't mess with dinosaurs? [ laughter ] at least there's a line, that's your line. >> i'm trying to say, all these fast cars and dinosaurs together? it just doesn't make sense to me. but yeah, you're right, both of those are ludicrous, you're 100% correct, you're right. >> wanda: what about "fast and furious versus godzilla"? [ laughter ] >> pretty much in the same category as what the hell are we trying to do here? that's how i feel about that, what are we doing? >> wanda: here's a good one, "fast and furious versus the real housewives." all of them.
