[NY Post] - “Let’s have dinner tonight. A little karaoke and have some vodka, some hotties and stuff like that,” Rodman said the North Korean leader told him.
“Next thing I know, we are having dinner and we are drunk as sh-t, he starts singing karaoke and I have no clue what the f–k he’s talking about.” Then an 18-piece band of “hot” women came out — and only played the theme song from the 1978 TV show “Dallas,” Rodman said.
The Hall of Famer suggested they learn other tunes — some Pearl Jam, Van Halen and Rolling Stones — and, the next time he visited North Korea, they played all his requests.

Well, yeah, this sounds about right. The whole Dennis Rodman/Korea thing is absolutely fascinating. And by fascinating I mean it's terrifying and just so baffling. It proves that everyone is intrigued by the Jordan/Pippen/Rodman Bulls. If Kim Jong fucking Un loved the Bulls, everyone was intrigued by them. Who would have thought in that moment that a green-haired Dennis Rodman would become a key cog in world peace negotiations 20 years down the road.
But this is also the side of Rodman I expected to finally hear about over in Korea. The man who dipped out to go to Vegas and party with Carmen Electra wasn't going over to just talk and eat some dinner with Un. No sir, he was there to sing karaoke (Sister Hazel, All For You is my go to). That said I can't stop laughing at the 18-piece band of hotties coming out to play Dallas.
Don't want, NEED to hear that performance. What a bizarre song to play though. Do you know how many other fire theme songs there are? Quick halftime break for my top-5 theme songs (no sports intros) so everyone can yell:
4. City Guys
3. Hang Time
2. The OC
1. The King of Queens
But back to Rodman in Korea. This sounds like a delightful Saturday night - outside of being with one of the worst humans ever. Karaoke and a little dinner, some hotties and vodka? Sign me the hell up for that - again, just in America, not with a dictator that kills people. I will say all of a sudden this performance makes way more sense:
I know we've talked about how crazy this story is, but I still don't think we fully comprehend how fucking nuts it is. Dennis Rodman is trying to play peacemaker with North Korea. He was named an ambassador to North Korea. An ambassador! He's just going over there and hanging out with a guy who as I said is one of the worst humans ever. Yet we just laugh and go well that's Dennis.
'Having some dinner, a little karaoke and some vodka and hotties' is a fire quote though. Print the shirts.
