Ice Cube: 'Lakers suite keeps me off the TV'

Rapper and actor Ice Cube had to buy a suite at the Staples Center for Los Angeles Lakers basketball games because he didn't want his temper to land him on TV.

The It Was a Good Day hitmaker is an avid Lakers season ticket holder and he admits he gets too fired up at games to sit courtside with his fellow celebrities.

He explains, "I gotta be up there because I'm too emotional. I hate to lose and I'm yelling and screaming, my wife's patting me on the back, trying to calm me down.

"I need to be up, so I'm not part of the show... It's a TV in a suite but you're yelling down on the court and nobody can really hear you... You stay off the TV."
