Sexiest Beastie Boy Talks About Stuff.

When Beastie Boy Adam Yauch (aka MCA) talks, I listen. Because he is smart, sexy, funny, and a Buddhist. Sure, we never got married, like I used to totally think would happen, but nevertheless, he's still gots it going on. In a recent interview with "Radar", he talks about his new documentary, Sharon Stone's idiocy, and his quiet home life. His new documentary, entitled "Gunnin' for That #1 Spot", takes a look at the country's best high school basketball stars who gathered at Rucker Park in Harlem for the Elite 24 tournament in 2006. The movie, which opens in select theaters on June 27, is both an intimate portrait of eight kids straddling adolescence and athletic stardom and an ode to street ball set to MCA's choice tracks. The older and wiser Yauch also talks about the parrallels between the early BB days and today's most famous musical acts saying, "I started in the band when I was in high school, and our first record was just a little punk record. It wasn't until License to Ill that the band became mainstream, and I was 21 or 22 when that came out. Stuff happens to these kids much younger these days. They're really known by 18, and the amount of money they're dealing with is insane. Some of these contracts with Nike are worth $15 million." In addition, he weighs in on Sharon Stone saying the Chinese earthquake was the work of karma: "The earthquakes affected Tibet pretty radically also because they happened right on the border. I guess everybody can put their foot in their mouth. When there are things of that severity that happen, it's hard to think of it in terms of karma. From a Buddhist perspective, everything is karma, everything is positive and negative. But it's much more complicated and interwoven than equating an earthquake with political oppression. Karma is based on things that unfold over hundreds of thousands of lifetimes and reincarnations." Beastie fans will also be glad to know that the boys are back in the studio working on a new record. When asked by Radar if he thinks he still has a lot of groupies, Yauch just laughs saying, "No. I think they're all chasing Justin Timberlake." Psht! Justin Timberlake wishes he were as hot as MCA. In your dreams, Timberlake!
