    LL Cool J Licked His Lips 34 Times During the Grammys [Gallery]
    LL Cool J has plenty of outstanding accomplishments that have secured him as a hip-hop legend. Beyond the music, the Queens-native has become known as a sex symbol, often fond of going shirtless. He also has a tendency to famously lick his lips. Last night (February 12), while hosting the Grammys, LL proved that old habits die hard, and put tongue to lips a remarkable 34 times while in front of the camera—<i>XXL</i> counted. During his opening five-minute monologue, he knocked out 23 of those. There were times when he controlled himself, like while introducing Diana Ross, and others when he couldn't, like during an Adele acceptance speech. Here, <em>XXL</em> presents to you a gallery of each of Licking Lips Cool James's lip-smacking moments during last night's affair. Pass the chap stick.—<i>XXL Staff</i>(<a href="http://twitter.com/xxlstaff" target="_blank">@XXLStaff</a>)

    no way…is xxl posting yet another pointless article that no one cares about? weird…

    im really curious what they pay you guys to do at work because arguably 50% of the articles you post have no base and no audience..but thanks for going out of your way to post 34 pictures of ll cool j

    also, not trying to be too harsh, but wouldnt it be a good idea (for the sake of continuity) to have the title picture feature ll at the grammys? idk maybe it makes sense to post an article about him at the grammys, but highlight it with a picture from another event…

    If people would have read his book, “I make my own rules”, His wife Simone, when they first met on her porch/driveway, make a two remarks. She told him he had “sexy lips” and she liked him “liking” his lips”. Did you ever think that maybe he’s doing that towards her either in audience or watching at home? And instead of using chapstick, which doesn’t work real good, try “Blistex”, it sinks in, chapstick is a wax, it crumbles. Blistex keeps nice as it goes into your skin.

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is fantastic blog. A fantastic read. I’ll certainly be back.

    After watching LL’s monologue, I quickly grew annoyed at the lip licking. I knew someone would count the number of times he did this. Thanks! I wish he would get help for it. It’s so distracting, at least for me. When he was younger, it was kinda sexy. Now that he’s older, it just looks stupid.
