Marshawn Lynch won’t talk to the national media, but one former member of Destiny’s Child had no problem getting through to the reserved Seattle Seahawks running back.
Michelle Williams spoke to Lynch on Tuesday in a surprisingly candid interview for “Entertainment Tonight.” Williams asked Beast Mode to sing and eventually got him to belt out a bit of “Nights Like This” from the 1991 movie “The Five Heartbeats.”
Lynch’s cooperation earned him an Xbox One, which he assured would go to his “Fam 1st Family Foundation,” and gave him an opportunity to talk about his charity.
“One lucky kid from my foundation will be going home with an Xbox One as soon as I get home from the Super Bowl,” Lynch said. “We actually have an event going on Wednesday back at home — a couple workshops with some kids doing some architect work, which is really good.”
Lynch has been answering the media with one-liners all week, letting them know he’s there so he doesn’t get fined. But he has fared much better in one-on-one and scripted situations, such as the awesome Skittles and Progressive Insurance commercials that were released this week.
