Nicki Minaj Talks Opening Doors For Female Rappers, Her New Look, And Forbes Saying Iggy Azalea Runs Rap…
In case you didn’t know, Nicki Minaj released a new song this week called “Pills N Potions,” the first official single from her upcoming third album, The Pink Print. No more reality TV gigs, no more films (for now), no more focusing on clothes at K-Mart–Minaj is back to music and ready to reclaim her place at the top when it comes to women in hip-hop. She did an interview this week with The Breakfast Club, and in it, she discussed her upcoming album, her toned down look, and what she thinks about people (just Forbes really) saying Iggy Azalea is running rap right now. This is what she had to say:
Why She Switched Up Her Look:
“I don’t know. The album is more personal so the look being stripped down goes really well with the third album. I always planned to do it at this time. It didn’t just come about now; I just always thought in my head that my third album I would want to go back to my real hair.”
Why Other Female Rappers Aren’t Having The Same Success As Her:
“I feel like I have opened that door in the industry. To be honest, I think there are women that do their thing and for whatever reason they don’t get the recognition. But that’s something you have to take up with pop culture and it has nothing really to do with me. I can’t really speak for anybody’s grind or how pop culture receives people. To answer your question, no I’m really not surprised because even when I was grinding and putting out tapes and stuff, it was hard for me. It takes a lot of work. It doesn’t just happen overnight. It’s not a female-friendly business. Hip hop is not female friendly at all.”
She’s Going To Stop With The Pop And Go Back To Hardcore Rap On Her New Album:
“I don’t want to label what I’m doing. This isn’t about ‘is it a hardcore album?’ This is a meaningful body of work and I’m tired of labeling it. I’m not going to ever label my music again. It is what it is. You can tell from ‘Pills N Potions’ that I’m just creating music and the most important thing to me is to keep is truthful and keep it honest. Sometimes you’re going to feel like it’s hardcore and sometimes you may feel like it’s not. But as long as it’s good music then that’s really all that matters to me at this point.”
What She Thinks Of Forbes Saying Iggy Azalea Is Running Hip-Hop:
“[Laughs] Okaaaaaay, I’m reloaded! Listen, all Forbes needs to be worried about is my finances and when I’m going to be selling MYX Fusions for $250 million. That’s all they need to worry about. We rely on hip-hop connoisseurs and blogs for that kind of information, so we can appreciate that, but no thank you.”
What do you think of all that Nicki had to say? Are you excited for her new album, The Pink Print? Talk about it below.
Earlier this week, we reported on the love triangle between Teyana Taylor, Brandon Jennings and Tae Heckard. Teyana made some pretty strong allegations against Brandon Jennings, her former fiancé, and Tae Heckard, her former friend in an interview with “The Breakfast Club.” Teyana had text messages to back it up so we’re inclined to believe what she was saying.
But Brandon didn’t really agree with what Teyana had to say during the interview. On Twitter, he insinuated that she was not telling the full truth but he really didn’t refute any of her claims. Instead he posted this picture of Tae.
With the caption: “What had happen was…NVM.”
He deleted it shortly after but not before people, including our sister site Bossip, had a chance to grab the screenshot.
Then there were a string of tweets:
Y’all be so ready to believe anything
Btw Tae isn’t 36
That ain’t Tae style but me if u bon talk it make sure it’s 100
We chill in. Just keep Tae outta it. Just blame me if u gon do it.
If y’all gon talk bad about someone let it be me. Not Tae.
U just gotta let it gooooo
If I had dated a man for six years, was engaged to him and ultimately decided to give him my virginity, I wouldn’t be so ready and willing to move on either. I have to agree with Teyana it’s funny how dude is going so hard for her when she was just dating Nelly last month…Soap Operas out here, ladies and gentlemen.
“No Matter How Much I Dislike This Man, It Will Never Be To The Point Where He Can’t See His Son”: Keyshia Cole On Daniel Gibson
To promote her new song, “Rick James” (you read right), Keyshia Cole stopped by The Breakfast Club to give a very interesting interview about everything that has gone on with her marriage (she and her husband are on social media beefing terms), her issues with Michelle Williams and Beyoncé (including why she was so critical of “Bow Down”), her drama with her sister Neffie and her mom (they no longer speak), and more. Here’s what stood out:
Her Statements About Beyoncé:
“I was not hating on Beyoncé. No, it was not directed at all as hate. I’ve seen Beyonce a few times. She’s always a very sweet girl. To me, that just wasn’t her, her thing you know what I mean? But I don’t know. Like dude said, she switched it up or something. So, I don’t know, you know? But that’s just not what I know of her so it kinda hurt my feelings a little bit.”
Her Issues With Michelle Williams And Working Things Out:
“Well she stared that you know what I mean? She started that and it really hurt my feelings too because she’s Christian and she’s a church girl and all of this but yet we talk on the phone and you say you apologize for taking a Tweet down that you said about me in the first place. You know what I’m saying? And I mean, it just felt like everybody just jumped on me ‘cuz I’m from Oakland, I’m the ghetto chick and I’m always starting everything when in actuality I just say how I feel. You know what I’m saying and I don’t feel like I was starting nothing. But I was just getting her back for what she said to me. It was just like, I felt real like, everybody going in on me. You got ol boy, the Hamburgler up here talking about me. The-Dream [laughs]. You got Rico Love up here going in on me, but everybody was defending her. But in actuality she called me and apologized and said she never should have tweeted that or whatever. She called me and apologized and I said ‘Well next time you get a chance, address it, because you got people going in on me and that ain’t even the case.’ She said, I was at the Soul Train Awards and she was like, ‘I ain’t even know you could use Auto-tune at the Soul Train Awards, what’s that about?’ It’s cool. It’s over.
State Of Her Marriage:
“I just, you know what I mean, I just wanna put my music out. And just, you know, sit in my own craziness. You know what I’m saying? And just chill out for a minute. Like, I don’t even really know what I wanna do right now. I don’t want to talk about it. I don’t really want go into it.”
Where They Are Now:
“We co-parent. He’s a great father though. Exactly, 8:30 come take DJ to school every morning and I pick him up.”
On Thinking Her Husband, An NBA Player, Wouldn’t Cheat:
“I did. I really did. I believed in that, you know what I mean? And on top of that, we just had so much of a great relationship. I felt like, I felt like it wouldn’t be possible.”
If They Can Work Things Out:
“I’d just rather avoid questions like that for my son’s sake. We’ll know it as the time goes by whats going to happen. You know? This we’re talking about now involves a child…I want the situation to play out. I just want to protect my son. I’ll never be the kind of woman who–No matter how much I dislike this man, it will never be to the point where he can’t see his son. Period.”
If She Can Work Out Issues With Neffie And Frankie:
“No. I mean, it’s just chaos and I don’t want that around him [son Daniel]. I have to protect him from that type of chaos. I haven’t even spoke to my mom, Frankie, in a minute. They don’t have my number. It’s just a respect thing for one. Last time I had my mom around I sent her through rehab and I tried to help her and I spent a lot of money…and she just took it way too far, yelling in my house. Luckily my child was asleep. After that I was like, ‘Naw.’ You gotta make an adult decision to move that out…I just need…not right now.”
“I’ve grown a lot. I’m 30 years old. Ain’t the same way I used to do it. Take my anger out and just go ahead and approach you and do something about it.That ain’t the way I do it no more. You know? I’m a mother.You know what I mean? Whatever I do from here on out, I want my son to be proud of. Regardless of what it is.”
Putting All Her Business On Social Media:
“Well I have feelings, you know what I’m saying? I guess sometimes I have to put my phone down like ‘yo, I need to put my phone down because I’m about to go in.’ But I’m chillin’.”
She addressed quite a bit. Check out her full interview and Keyshia’s answer to the question of whether or not she’s really happy at the point and difficult time in her life.
We watched Tatyana Ali grow up gracefully before our eyes as Ashley Banks on “The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air.” After the show ended in 1996, she became a singer and had us lip-syncing to her hit song “Day-Dreaming” with our friends, and as she continued to explore other industries the child star became a producer, Harvard graduate, and campaigned for President Obama’s candidacy. Yesterday, Miss Ali hung out with Power 105’s Breakfast Club and spoke about her new movie November Rule, which stars Lala Anthony, Jay Ellis and Mo McCray, posing for King Magazine and if she got a little nookie from Drake. Here are the highlights from the interview.
Her New Movie, November Rule
“November Rule is about Mo McCray’s character. His character has a rule, by November he always breaks up with whoever he’s with. November is when Thanksgiving starts, then it’s Christmas, the other holidays. So If you break it off before then, it will never get too serious. You never have to introduce people to your family. When I first read the script, I thought “this is such a cool idea, no one ever does this.” Then on the set, I realized everyone is doing this. This is something guys do.”
For King Magazine
“I’ve posed for King Magazine twice. I never put it out there. The first time I did King, it was a different type of magazine. The flavor of it was a bit different than it is now. The pictures were different. You could cover up more. When I posed for them, I was in my twenties and when I’m a grandma I can look back on those pictures. I thought I looked cute and I wanted to celebrate it. The second time I did it, the theme was Hollywood Era. I didn’t even show my stomach.”
I had a panic attack after that [Wendy Williams] interview. When I’m nervous, I laugh. If you look at the interview I am laughing the entire time. I thought she would ask (because of what was happening with the blogs), so I prepared for the question: “Are you dating?” But instead she asked if I smashed him and I never experienced that from Wendy before. [Drake’s] flattering (refereeing to him dropping her name in his song,”Tuscan Leather.”) I thought it was really nice of him.

Ashanti Talks Nelly And Tae Heckard, People Who Say She Can’t Sing, “Good Hair,” And Surviving The Industry On Breakfast Club
Ashanti’s new album, Braveheart, drops today, and to promote it, the singer stopped by The Breakfast Club to chat with Charlamagne, Angela Yee and DJ Envy. In their very interesting interview with her, Ashanti touched on everything, including critics who used to talk about her vocal abilities and her sideburns, what she’s learned about the industry, who she’s dating, and of course, Nelly. Here are the tidbits from the 30-minute interview that stood out:
If She’s On Good Terms With Nelly These Days:
“I will say that, there was a space where it was bad. It was really bad. Are we cool? Yeah. We’re okay.
When a man is hurt and a woman is hurt, I think men deal with hurt differently. I feel like we handle our emotions differently. There were a lot of things said and done publicly that should not have been. There was a foundation set and those things shouldn’t have happened.
We both definitely made mistakes in a lot of things. But I will say things do come full circle.”
If Nelly Is the One:
“Um, Nelly is a really good person, he has a really good heart. You know?”
She Felt A Way About Nelly Going With Tae Heckard Soon After They Split:
“Did I feel a way? I’m very smart and I know him. I knew what the facade was.”
If She Was Dating NFL Baller DeSean Jackson:
“Um…No. We were hanging. I went to a football game. He’s real cool peoples. I can’t go to the game?”
How She Paid Bills Since Her Last Album In 2008:
“I did Broadway. I did Army Wives. I write. People forget early, I was writing for J. Lo, one of J. Lo’s biggest records ever. I wrote for Christina Milian, I wrote for a couple of pop groups. And I’ma be honest, I don’t really like to spend my own money. I know how to save.”
Dealing With Critics Who Said She Couldn’t Sing:
“When you’re hot and you’re on fire, you gotta expect that. When you’re number one and you’re killing it, it comes with the territory. You have to be strong enough. If you’re strong enough to be number one, you have to be strong enough to endure the BS.”
Dealing With Haters Who Said She Had Sideburns Back In The Day:
“I’ma keep it all the way 100. I have nice hair. I ain’t even gonna lie. When you have ‘good hair’ you’re hairy a little bit and you have sideburns [laughs]. Some people love sideburns. This is what I thought though. On TV, on film and in pictures, it looks a little different than it does in person [laughs]. So when you’re looking in the mirror, you know, you gelling them down, but on film and on camera it may look a bit different. I looked at it like, they wack, you know, for saying that. I’m a girl, that’s real feminine for you to be saying that. But then I would look and be like, damn it! [laughs]“
How She Makes Her Relationship With Her Mom-ager Work After All These Years
“We been tight before the industry. My mom and I have an amazing relationship…Our relationship is not, oh because of the music industry, it’s more that we have a relationship and not an authoritive, mother, ‘I’m telling you what to do’ relationship.”
If She Ever Felt Like Giving Up:
“It’s definitely gotten to places where I fee like, ‘this is bulls**t’. This is not how it’s supposed to be. You’re not supposed to have to put in ten times more work and get less the pay. Just conceptually understanding the game and the agendas that people have and the fact that people look at you as a commodity and not a person. Once you understand that, you don’t take things personal. It’s about adapting and understanding it.”
If She Would ‘Allow’ Nelly To Be Friends With Tae Heckard From Here On Out:
“What? Who? I don’t know what ya’ll talking about.”
Dealing With Famous Folks Trying To Holler At Her Mom:
“It’s so annoying. I swear, since I was like 7-years old. Steve Harvey? Jay Leno? It’s really bad. He [Harvey] pushed me out the way. The first time we went to LA to do an interview, he was like, ‘Heeeey, we have Ashanti! Who that? That’s her momma? Tell her momma to come over!'”
If you have 30 minutes to spare, I would recommend checking out the interview. It had quite a few funny moments, and moments where Ashanti kept it really real about the dark side of the industry. Check it out below and share your thoughts.
In an interview with DJ Envy, Charlamagne Tha God and Angela Yee of The Breakfast Club, Blood Sweat and Heels star Melyssa Ford sat down to serve some tea on her struggle to try and get past her days as a “video vixen” and be taken more seriously in other endeavors, including TV. During the conversation, Ford brought up the fact that part of the struggle comes from the fact that people can’t seem to separate regular video models from models who sleep around on sets. She says that after Karrine Steffans wrote her book, Confessions of a Video Vixen, all video models received a bad rap. She says that it was always her plan to leave videos behind (even though she claims she was making $5,000 A DAY), but it hasn’t been easy. Here’s the tea:
On Her Exit Strategy To Leave Video Modeling Behind:
[6:00 minute mark] Who would want do do that forever? Whose trying to be a 35-year-old video girl? You gotta have an exit strategy for just about everything. In terms of business, the whole point is to dominate and then leverage it and then move on to the next. Hopefully, it’s not a lateral move, hopefully, you’re moving on up. I just took my popularity and leveraged it, branded myself and started creating product: calendars, behind-the-scenes DVDs, pep posters–you name it, I slapped my name on it. After I accummulated this fan base, then I started to solicit television opportunities. I was already on BET’s radar. A lot of what’s happened in my career has been solely based on timing.
Karrine Steffans Made Things Hard For All Video Models:
[8:00 minute mark] You know the answer to that. It’s kind of a book that came out. Here’s the craziest part, Karrine, I’m sure that personally she’s a lovely girl, I don’t know her personally…Here’s the truth of the matter, when I was on video sets, no one knew who this girl was. I thought she was the Snuffleupagus. I thought she was an urban myth, I didn’t think she existed because I didn’t know anyone that had ever seen her before. Her name just floated around like this big mystery. Then this book came out and it defined an entire group! Like all video vixens–hos. I was just like, ‘hold on, your story and mine are two very, very different stories.’ I was the queen of no…You really have to monitor what’s going on around you in a video set.
Of course, Ford has come a long way and she knows what she’s capable of. Go, girl! Check out her interview with The Breakfast Club below, where she also talks about her ex, Flo Rida, and his ex, Eva Marcille, who she had a light beef with. I mean, if you have 40 minutes to spare…
If you don’t already have Janelle Monae’s new album The Electric Lady, you are truly missing out. It just might be album of the year (I’m torn between it and Justin Timberlake’s 20/20 Experience), but we still have a few months left in 2013 to figure that out. To promote the new disc, the beauty actually hit up The Breakfast Club. And while the show is usually a bit much when it comes to the questions they ask their guests, the hosts were on their best behavior. Well, for the most part (DJ Envy tried to imply she was gay but her facial expression shut that down real quick). Check out what she had to say about what it’s really like to work with Diddy and if she’s on Bad Boy, having jam sessions with Prince, and why sales do matter to her.
Is She on Bad Boy? And What It’s Like Working With Diddy:
“Diddy actually is somebody I have to credit for helping me get my career off the ground. I started my own label a few years back, the Wondaland Arts Society, and Big Boi was working with us, and Puff came down and saw what we were doing and just wanted to help. He said, ‘I don’t want to be involved creatively with anything you guys got going on, I just want the world to know about you.’ So it’s a partnership. I came into the business owning my own label.
It’s a very unique position that I’m very thankful for. I was very anti-major label. I just felt that I didn’t see myself out there. I felt that if I was going to be signed directly to this big machine I would have to change my image, my music and stuff, so I felt the most important thing was getting the music to the people, unfiltered…I’ve been in the unique position to have Puff’s support and Big Boi’s support. They’re executive producing this album. I’m here because artists helped me get to this level.”
How She Became So Close With The Purple One:
“My first nationally released EP, Metropolis, came out and he listened to it. I was actually on tour with Raphael Saadiq and he had his DJ, DJ Rasheeda, she came backstage and said, ‘I have someone who wants to talk to you’ and I’m like, ‘Okay.’ So I get on the phone and this voice…I’m going to do it in my voice, he said ‘I love your voice, I love what you’re doing, I’m happy, I’m proud,’ and ‘Do you want to come over for a jam session?’ So he invited my band and I over for a jam session. We stayed up until seven in the morning just talking and playing music. He took me on tour with him, I did Madison Square Garden and the Forum in L.A.”
Charlamagne: “Did he feed you pancakes?”
“I’ve actually had pancakes. We all did, he’s a great host. But we didn’t play basketball [laughs].
But I’m just humbled and thankful. He doesn’t appear on a lot of albums so just to have his support–again, I’m here because a community of artists have supported me.”
And Why Sales Do Mean Something To Her:
“I need ya’ll support. I have not sold a million albums or 500,000 but I think this music is worth it.”
Charlamagne: “You care about that stuff?”
“I want everybody in the entire galaxy to hear this music. I don’t write music just for myself. I write it to help inspire and heal and to move people, you know what I mean? I want the world to hear about this album.”
And the world needs to quit sleeping and open their ears because she’s one of the most talented artists we have in all of music right now. Click over to the next page to watch her 20-minute interview with Charlamagne, DJ Envy and Angela Yee at Power 105.1.
“Leave Trash In The Trash Can”: K. Michelle Talks Erica Mena, The Pros And Cons Of Reality TV, Her New Man, And Butt Lifts
With her album, Rebellious Soul, finally in stores, K. Michelle has been doing the media rounds to promote her new music and her new self–a less confrontational chick too blessed to be stressed. She stopped by Power 105.1 to talk to the Breakfast Club about a range of things, including her booty, her boo, reality TV, and angry “birds” like Erica Mena coming for her on Twitter. Here’s a summary of the 20-minute interview, because I’m sure you don’t have time for all that.
About People Always Throwing Shade At Her Backside:
Charlamagne: “Everybody keeps saying that your a** is getting bigger and bigger…”
K. Michelle: “But it’s not, that’s what’s so crazy. It’s really not. My clothes are actually smaller. I think cause it was the white and it was the TV…I really weigh less than I’ve been weighing just running around doing stuff. I don’t know. We were sitting there last night, somebody said ‘She got a butt pad on’ we were looking like, What happened?”
Charlamagne: “Ain’t nobody complaining about your a** getting bigger but the girls. Girls like to hate.”
K. Michelle: “I’ve never seen women be so angry about another woman’s butt. I’ve never seen so much hate because of a butt.
But recently, I’ve had a lift. It just is a lift, no injections in your butt cheeks and all of that. They just lift. They just lift the booty. They lift it and they take your fat out your stomach. Then, I’ve been moving around and losing weight so I guess that’s why it looks even bigger, because this weight [points to stomach] is leaving…I tell mines.”
How Reality TV Has Helped And Hurt Her:
“It’s helped me a lot. People got to know me, they got to hear the music. It’s helped me, but it has hurt me. But I’m overcoming the hurt. Because the industry has given me a hard time. Not the street and the fans, they don’t care about no reality show, but the industry people have given me a really hard time. I’ve had to knock down every obstacle even with radio. I just had a programmer, didn’t want to play the record because he didn’t like my character on the show. It was a big fight. I did a Radio One showcase and he came up and apologized. He came up to me and apologized and was like ‘You know what? I’m gonna play this, I’m sorry. You really are talented.’ It’s crazy, it just took forever. It’s been like 20 years.”
On Her New Man, Indiana Pacer Lance Stephenson
“I’m not in love yet. This is my friend, my boo. I’m not jumping off the cliff like last time, but we’re in a great place. My hot pocket work, I’m happy. We’re good. I want to take it slow because it’s a slow process. I want to have fun. I don’t want to put the pressure on. We do what we do. I don’t want to start the nagging K. Michelle with him, I just want to smile with him.”
How She Feels About Rasheeda & Kirk:
“You know what, I’ve never been married, and I’ve never been in love like that. That has to be a deep love. To look at somebody that many days?
I don’t know what that’s like though. I know me. I was embarrassed on Twitter. So if you get on national TV on me, oh no, uh uh man, I could NOT do that.”
As For Erica Mena Already Talking Crazy About Her:
“Birds always chirp. But you leave trash in the trash can. Until you can go buy you a voice at Target. Until you can get that together, don’t come for me. You need to stay in a h*e’s place.”
Once again, Rebellious Soul is in stores now. Will you pick it up and support?
“I Don’t Want To Sound Bitter”: Wale Speaks On Assistant Attacking Tiara Thomas On Twitter, And If He Still Holds A Grudge
Earlier this month, we told you about Wale’s alleged assistant taking to Twitter to try and air out Tiara Thomas. Of course, Thomas used to work very closely with rapper Wale, including on the popular track “Bad.” But despite claims by the rapper that he worked with her for two years, she went ahead and signed with Rico Love and his music management company. This, of course, Wale didn’t take well, and neither did his assistant, who went pretty berserk on social media. Here’s the exchange that occurred between the assistant, Reese, Wale and Thomas on Twitter a short while back:
It has been a few weeks and now that Wale’s new album, The Gifted has been released, he went to Power 105.1’s “The Breakfast Club” to not only talk about it, but to clear some things up about that tense exchange between all three parties on social media. Here’s what he had to say about Reese’s behavior, loyalty, and why his camp took things oh so personally:
Wale: “Reese old enough to be my mother. I can’t tell her what to say and what to do. But Reese was raised in the streets for real, so she has a specific code she goes by so it doesn’t necessarily coincide with how people do things in the music industry. She was speaking freely. I tried to tell her to stop but what you gon’ tell a woman–she gonna do what she gonna do. It f**ked with a lot of people in our circle because it was so close. They remember me spending money to fly her around, they remember me going to Joey who was at Warner at the time trying to get her a deal. They remember me taking her to Jay. They remember me taking her to Pharrell. They remember me doing all of these things.”
Angela Yee: “But no paperwork?”
Wale: “Me personally I had a different code by then. I was like, ‘You know what? You gonna mess up the chemistry if you start throwing around paperwork now. Let’s just make our music. We have an understanding, we’re gonna get it done.'”
DJ Envy: “Is that what you did with Ross?”
Wale: “Funny thing is, I wasn’t on paperwork when I did “Pandemonium.” I wasn’t on paperwork when I did “Play Your Part,” me or Meek. For real for real, I can tell you the list of people, artists, everything that was trying to undercut Ross and sign me. And tell me all the reasons why I shouldn’t sign with Ross. But, he gave me an opportunity. But at the same time, everybody wasn’t raised the same. I don’t want to sound bitter. She’s a small girl. I don’t want to sound like a bully or nothing like that, but she did what was best for her career.
I get a lot of flack for everything I do…I’ve tried to find peace in the music business…you can say ‘Wale sensitive,’ but everybody is.”
Interesting. Either way, he’s doing well and she’s doing her own thing. So while Wale and his team might still be a little salty about the situation, it’s time to keep the peace and move on. What do you think about his statements on “The Breakfast Club”?
If you saw Lil Mo discussing her feelings about Keyshia Cole and Beyonce’s “Bow Down,” then you know she has a strong personality and a way with words. She’s witty. Kind of puts you in the mind of K. Michelle but more churched and more classy. She’s a riot. She sat down with the Breakfast Club to discuss her career, why she doesn’t rock with Keyshia Cole and her role on the new show “R&B Divas: L.A.” Check out a few excerpts from the interview and then watch the entire video on the last page.
On having her kids on the show “R&B Divas”
Lil Mo: “My baby son he’s 9 months, he has his shots.
Envy: Mo make him sound like a dog.
Lil Mo: No cuz you know people have their baby out, it be the size of my phone ‘here he is.’ If you don’t take that baby…it’s germs out here. It’s the flu. That baby could die! I don’t play that. So he has his shots, he’s of age. And I was like, yo these kids need jobs because…
Angela Yee: Wait, hold on so the baby gets paid too?
Mo: Yes. I have a great lawyer.
Her personality on the show
It got to the point. They had to add on extra weeks of shooting. I would shoot everyday. Listen, everything I am invited to, I take over. When I do radio, I don’t do nothing less than number one. When I do songs, as long as I got a machine and budget behind me, I can make top 40. When I do tv, you’re going to want to see me in my element. I only know how to dominate. That’s my personality. I don’t go in like ‘aaaahhh’ I don’t know where people get that from . But I made it my business to bring my staff with me. I had hair and makeup everyday . Clothes. I ain’t wear the same thing twice. I can’t speak for the other ladies.
Who’s your best friend on the show?
Honestly, everybody. I took everybody for their flaws and everybody. I’m my own best friend I didn’t sign on because of who signed on. I signed on because this is something I wanted to do because it’s great for promotion, visibility as well as my whole movement.
I talk to Chante Moore. You would never expect her to be like mad cool. Like cool like us.
