Beastie Boys’ Ad-Rock gives advice to teenage girls in Rookie’s ‘Ask A Grown Man’ video – watch

Ad-Rock on how to break-up: 'You can blame your parents'

Beastie Boys rapper Ad-Rock has starred in a video feature for Rookie Magazine called ‘Ask A Grown Man’.

The video series, aimed at Rookie’s largely teenage girl audience, sees a famous adult man fielding questions from the magazine’s readership and offering worldly advice.

Following on from the likes of Thom Yorke, Stephen Malkmus and Run The Jewels, who have all taken part previously, Ad-Rock gave his opinions on how to approach a first kiss (“Just go ahead and do it!”) and how to break up with your partner (“You can blame your parents”).

Speaking about men as a whole, Ad-Rock added: “I don’t mean to generalize, but I’m going to: Boys are, for the most part, not very observant.” Watch the full video beneath.

Ad-Rock recently discussed the possibility of working with bandmate Mike D again. The New York rapper, real name Adam Horovitz, spoke to NME about the death of Adam ‘MCA’ Yauch in 2012 and the future of the group without one of its founding members.

He said: “Adam started the band, so we couldn’t do anything without him”. However, Horovitz continued that he is likely to work with Mike D again, but not under the Beastie Boys name: “At some point we’ll do something,” he added.

Horovitz also discussed the upcoming Beastie Boys memoir, which was recently pushed back to a 2017 release. “I try to do a little [writing] every day – it’s not like I have anything else to do!” Horovitz says. “There’s a lot of New York, purposely, in the thing that we’re writing.”
