Nelly and Leo, whose balls feature prominently in this week's episode.

In 21st-century American life, we as consumers of media get a fascinating amount of insight into our favorite artists and celebrities, who at this point barely even have the illusion of privacy in their personal lives. This total transparency can make us feel closer to these larger-than-life stars, and can at times offer some truly fascinating insights into what makes them tick.

Or, in other instances, we spend an unexpected amount of time concerned about their pets' balls.

The Saintliest of Lunatics, Nelly, with his family.
If you were hoping Nellyville would be an insightful look at the life of a rapper who has been notoriously private until now, prepare to be disappointed. Aside from a few very raw scenes, this show is little more than fluff with some staged drama.

St. Louis rapper Nelly has joined Rev Run, Coolio and other fizzling pop stars who are trying to grab some last limelight through reality TV. After his latest album went largely unnoticed in 2013 (you know, that one you probably didn't hear about until you read that last sentence), he has turned to television. Nellyville is airing on BET in eight hour-long episodes.

Probably best to stay away from Nelly's daughters if you value your life.
In a recent video interview with People, St. Louis rapper Nelly spoke about fatherhood and the trickiness of discussing the birds and the bees with your children. Nelly asserts that good parenting is about being involved -- not just financially, but "lovingly and mentally being involved in their lives as much as possible."

Aw, what a sweetheart.

Nelly, with the cast of his upcoming show, a.k.a. his family.
Last month left us confused and sick with anticipation after we saw the release of a suspenseful and mysterious teaser for Nelly's new BET-based reality show, Nellyville. Luckily, our fears that we'd simply be watching Nelly sleep through eight-hour-long episodes were quelled with the full-length trailer. This time, Nelly was awake long enough to give us a more in-depth synopsis of his show.

Arsenio Hall performing "Country Grammar" in an Ozzie Smith uniform, NOT doing backflips.

Last night, Nelly returned to the Arsenio Hall Show to collect on the bet he and Hall made on Tuesday of last week. The wager was over whether the Dodgers or the Cardinals would triumph in the recent series for the pennant: If the former, Nelly would perform his breakout hit "Country Grammar" wearing a Dodgers uniform; if the latter, Hall would perform the song, dressed in Ozzie Smith's duds.

Arsenio Hall proved himself a man of his word...well, mostly.

On Friday our sister paper in Minneapolis, the City Pages published this story chronicling the Minneapolis sightings and Twitter-ings of St. Louis' most famous St. Lunatic, Nelly. According to reports, Nelly is in the midst of finalizing a deal with Minneapolis-based General Mills cereal (the hashtag "mustbethehoney" has been spotted in use as well, leading one to believe that Cheerios' advertising may be in for a Nelly-inspired revamp).
