Tupac Shakur lives on...apparently in the body of a reality star. Lala Kent of Vanderpump Rules reveals that she believes that she's possessed by the spirit of the late rapper. She dropped this strange bomb on The Jenny McCarthy Show on SiriusXM when asked where she got her style and demeanor.
"I was gonna ask you how did this like sweet, beautiful Utah girl turn into like this cool, hood chick?" McCarthy asked the 27-year-old. "Like on Instagram and stuff your Snapchats are so sexy, funny, but they're hood."
The host described Kent as provoking situations and being "fun to watch" on the show.
To this, the reality show star responded: "I don't know where that comes from, I mean I am a firm believer that when Tupac died he took over my body. I know you're laughing but I'm being for real."
McCarthy called this a "genius statement."
Kent has been so moved by the presence of the "California Love" rapper that she decided to emulate his famous ink. She decided to get a her own "Thug Life" tattoo — which Shakur had his across his torso.
"I recently just got 'thug life' tattooed on me and I feel so happy about it. It's by my...the inside ankle on my left and it's up and down in my handwriting, it looks like a prison stamp."
Kent describes herself as "bougie" and "white" and says that despite her connection the late rapper, she's never even been in a fight.
As for what Shakur would think about living inside the body of Kent? She admits that he's probably not too happy.
"You know I'm sure he is not thrilled with his new body casing but I'm not thrilled about the temper."
Tupac Shakur died after being gunned down in Las Vegas on September 13, 1996. Kent would have been around six years old at the time.
Vanderpump Rules is a Bravo TV show that follows that staff at Lisa Vanderpump's SUR restaurant in Beverly Hills. Kent, who was a hostess at the restaurant, joined in season four and initially left the show in 2016 but has returned back this season. "My reasoning for leaving was I felt like it was too much of a negative impact on my day-to-day life," she told E! News in a statement at the time. "There was not enough good to outweigh the bad. I've also worked so hard on my talent as far as singing and acting goes, and no one has really recognized that. It's just been a bunch of sh*t-slinging. I just don't care to be part of anything like that."
