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—XXL 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, XXL 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.—XXL Staff(@XXLStaff)
