Dwayne Johnson says he needs 'experience' before presidential run
Dwayne Johnson appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Wednesday where the actor discussed how serious he was about running for president.

"So when that started picking up, of course when I'm asked -- yes, I have incredible respect for our American people and our country -- so I said 'Yes, I would consider it,'" Johnson said to Colbert about the possibility of running for office.

"But at the same time, Stephen, I mean look, I'm not delusional at all. Like, I feel like I... you know what it is? I need that thing... oh, experience," he continued. "So if that were to happen in 2024, 2028, I would have to go to work and get some experience, you know, and understand policy."

Calls for Johnson to run for president began in June 2016 following the release of an op-ed piece in The Washington Post that suggested he could win an election based on his likability and ancestry.

The former WWE star also shared a shot of Tequila with Colbert on the show while the pair raised their eyebrows, sang a Samoan song and discussed his family's legacy in professional wrestling.

"It means, like, 'Answer me, oh my love, just what it is that I am guilty of,'" Johnson said of the tune he performed. "I will say I have never looked a man directly in the eye when I sang that."

Johnson, when detailing his family's connection to professional wrestling, explained how his grandmother was the first female wrestling promoter in the history of the business.

"She was a badass too, by the way," he said and explained that she was unaware at first about the choreography involved in wrestling and got physically involved in a match that featured her husband.

"She jumps in the ring, takes her clogs off and starts beating his ass in the ring," Johnson said of his grandmother's response to seeing his grandfather get beat-up during a match.

Colbert mentioned that Johnson's 16-year-old daughter Simone Alexandra Johnson was interested in becoming a professional wrestler.

"I love the idea of her doing it only because the wrestling business these days are a lot different than when I was there," Johnson said.

"I feel very comfortable with it."

Cardi B gives birth to daughter Kulture Kiari
Cardi B is a first-time mom.

The 25-year-old rapper took to Instagram Wednesday after welcoming a baby girl with her husband, Migos rapper Offset, on Tuesday.

Cardi B posted a maternity photo and announced her daughter's name in the caption. Her baby girl will share a surname with Offset, who was born Kiari Kendrell Cephus.

"Kulture Kiari Cephus 07/10/18," Cardi B wrote, adding pink bow and flower emojis.

Offset also shared the news on his own account.

"KULTURE KIARI CEPHUS," he wrote.

Cardi B confirmed her pregnancy during an appearance on Saturday Night Live in April. She said in an interview with The Ellen DeGeneres Show the same month that Offset had picked out their daughter's name.

"It's almost tricky, but when it comes out, it's like, ahhh," the star said.

News broke in June that Cardi B and Offset secretly married in September prior to their very public engagement. Cardi B explained the decision in an Instagram post the same month.

"There are so many moments that I share with the world and then there are moments that I want to keep for myself! Getting married was one of those moments," the rapper wrote.

"We found someone to marry us, and she did, just the two of us and my cousin," she shared. "I said I do, with no dress no makeup and no ring!"

Blomkamp retweeted the post and added, "Very excited about this."

The first film in the sci-fi series about a cyborg crimefighter was released in 1987. It was followed by two sequels, a television show and a 2014 reboot.

Deadline.com reported the next chapter -- RoboCop Returns -- will be a sequel set in the original universe. Neumeier and Miner are producing and executive producing the project respectively.

No casting has been announced.

Graham is also executive producing the 13-episode show, which is expected to go into production next month. It will feature 14 hair and makeup artists from across the globe engaging in style-related challenges.

The fresh episodes are slated to air in 2019.
