Richie Now Better Known As Nicole's Father

R+B star LIONEL RICHIE is stunned that all his career accomplishments pale in comparison to being known as NICOLE RICHIE'S father. The Grammy-award winning musician claims all of his career accolades now mean nothing and that people don't care about his music, they just want to know more about Nicole. The SAY YOU, SAY ME singer appeared on the THE TONIGHT SHOW WITH JAY LENO Tuesday night (12SEP06) to perform his new single, I CALL IT LOVE. After the song, Richie came over to be interviewed and before he could even sit down Leno said, "So, your daughter Nicole is in the video?" Richie laughed and said, "I am Nicole Richie's father. Forget my entire career, forget the songwriting, forget THE COMMODORES. "I'm travelling all over the world now - blood curdling screams at an airport, little girls run over, 'Are you Nicole Richie's daddy?' "It's out of control. I'm very happy, I must tell you my buttons are popping off, but having Nicole in this video was a bit difficult. "I ordered two trailers and she insisted on having a larger trailer for her 100 guests. I kept telling her it was a video, not a movie!" Richie insists that he is thrilled with his daughter's success adding, "No, it was wonderful, I'm really proud."
