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: But Where's the Backflip?

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).

Hudspeth County Sheriff's Office
Brian Keith Jones was arrested this week while traveling with Nelly.
Nelly's tour bus was stopped this week in Sierra Blanca, Texas, where authorities found 36 bags of heroin, ten pounds of weed and a loaded handgun. Much, much more information here. His bodyguard, Brian Keith Jones, claimed ownership of everything, and he is currently awaiting arraignment in Texas. But Nelly is far from the first big name to make the wrong kind of headlines heading through Hudspeth County.

Nelly in happier times, performing in Kiener Plaza.
Update, 9:00 a.m.: We spoke with Jay E, producer of almost every song on Country Grammar and frequent Nelly collaborator. While he certainly isn't about to condone anyone's actions here, he is urging restraint. After all, none of us were there. He posted the following on his personal Facebook page yesterday afternoon and agreed to let us reprint it here: "For the people emailing, texting, and what nots about what info they got today. Please read... Maybe even read this twice...

Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. - Matthew 7:1"

Update, 10/12: Nelly speaks: Via Twitter, obviously, since this is 2012. His take on his bodyguard's illegal substances, below.

Update, 3:15 p.m.: We've got calls and messages out to several people close to Nelly. So far there's been no response, but we'll let you know once we have something.

Update: We've got a statement from the Hudspeth County Sheriff's Office -- it's below.

Nelly took his tour bus through Sierra Blanca, Texas last night. Probably a nice little town to make a stop unless you are carrying a shitload of contraband. Which, as it turns out, Nelly's bus was: Specifically, 36 bags of heroin, ten pounds of weed and a loaded .45 caliber pistol.
