January 28, 2001 - Sisqo is commenting on being nominated for Best New Artist in the Grammy Awards despite not really being a 'new artist'.

January 22, 2001 - Sisqo is commenting on a Dru Hill reunion, which will be on tour, not a new album. Sisqo tells Entertainment Weekly, "The year we spent apart made it so nobody could talk to each other. If somebody's breath was stinking or somebody farmed, you ain't even wanting to say, 'Damn, that was nasty!', you'd sooner walk out of the room so he could wallow in it. Jazz threatened to kill me. Nokio threatened to kill me, then I told them they can shove Dru Hill up their a**." On the bright side though, Sisqo added, "The cool thing is that we still get along. THey're going on tour with me this summer. I know what I said sounds harsh, but in my neighborhood, that's how we talk to each other." Dru Hill is expected to perform a small set at the end of Sisqo's shows.
