Tiffany Haddish wants a lot of celebrity star power in her life: a date with Michael B. Jordan, a fried chicken girls’ night with Michelle Obama and a Cardi B party at her funeral. In an interview with Marie Claire, the Girls Trip star spoke candidly about dancing, places to live abroad and her love life (OK, actually, that's “none of your damn business”).

This month’s MTV Movie & TV Awards host loves being onstage, where her stand-up comedy, recurring television roles, film acts and now hosting gigs -- she was the first black female stand-up comedian to host Saturday Night Live last fall -- and the other milestones of her career have kept her grounded. But her love of music and Cardi B will take her beyond the grave -- literally. When asked what song she wanted played at her funeral, she said, “A compilation of hip-hop from the ‘90s and ‘80s and maybe one Cardi B song. ‘Little bitch you can’t fuck with me...’ That funeral would be a straight party. I want people to be celebrating the life I lived, not mourning it.”

Her “fearlessness, creativity, and being real” have led her to be the absurdly hilarious woman she is today, but her urge to deliver happiness to the world keeps her “tub list,” as she calls it, focused on giving back to a community on the corner of Tiffany and Haddish -- the intersection of her dreams. “I want to open a youth center, a job-training center, a mental-health department, and a whole art center there,” Haddish said.
