"He was making sure he could get a good look without you knowing he was"
Ice-T knows he’s a lucky man!
When a fellow guest was caught on camera checking out Coco Austin dancing at the 2023 Grammy Awards, the 64-year-old rapper said he understood why people may be tempted to look at his beautiful wife.
The “Law & Order: SVU’ star posted about the interaction to his Instagram, sharing footage alongside the caption, “Lol… I love how the white dude looked at me then took time to check Coco out… I TOTALLY understand.”
The video from the audience of the ceremony showed a man seated near the couple first looking at Ice-T, before moving his gaze to Austin.

Ice-T was one of the many hip-hop legends who graced the Grammys stage to celebrate the genre’s 50th anniversary at the awards show on Sunday. The tribute included performances from Grandmaster Flash, Missy Elliott, Latifah, Run-D.M.C., Salt-N-Pepa, LL Cool J Nelly, Public Enemy and Busta Rhymes.
While the medley was hailed as one of the best performances in Grammy history, Ice-T admitted he was initially hesitant about being a part of the showcase.
“Questlove calls me up and he says, ‘All right, you gotta come to L.A. this weekend… It’s a big performance, I got you in the lineup,'” he recalled to Entertainment Tonight. “And I was still hesitant ’cause it’s a long travel, But then he says, ‘You don’t want to be sitting at home watching this show, saying you should’ve been there. I was invited but I didn’t show up.’ And [so] I got my Black a– on a plane.”
The actor gushed about how happy he felt “to see all these legends together and you’re not here for a funeral.”
“Real talk, unfortunately, that’s usually the only time we all get together and see each other,” Ice-T confessed. “So the Grammys brought us together and it’s so crazy that for a while, rap wasn’t even represented at the Grammys. I got one of the early grammys with Quincy Jones, you know, but I felt Quincy kinda snuck us in the backdoor.”
