In a recent interview with People magazine, rapper Nas revealed that his secret obsession is the critically acclaimed HBO show Girls.

Girls is a comedy, created by and starring Lena Dunham, about four twenty-something-year-old girls living in New York City. “I don’t know where this girl Lena Dunham came from, but she’s amazing!,” said Nas.

Nas’ secret obsession comes as a surprise to some, considering his tough guy hip-hop persona.  His appreciation for the show is also surprising, given the show has been publicly criticized for its lack of diversity.
