Trey Songz stopped by “The Breakfast Club” yesterday to chit chat with Charlemagne, DJ Envy and Angela Yee about the success he’s been enjoying from theTrigga Reloaded album, wanting kids, Chris Brown and some of the drama that comes along with being such a sex symbol.
Check out some of the excerpts from the interview below and then watch the full thing on the next page.
On touring with his friend Chris Brown
Charlemagne: Do you ever have conversations with Chris Brown like ‘You f**kin’ up the money bro?”
I mean I’ve had many conversations with him about the money, about his personal well being all that. But what Chris got going on with Chris, Chris got to figure out. No matter who talks to him. And I think it’s beautiful that’s he’s just being a father in his daughter’s life right now. It’s dope. I pray for Chris. I pray for all my friends. I think he’s under a lot of scrutiny. And it’s very hard. The difference between me and Chris, I tell people all the time, is Chris was 15 when we started. I was 20. It was different. Chris went straight up the pop charts. It took me a cool four years to see the amount of sex–success he had initially.
Charlemagne: You said amount of sex. *Cackles*
That’s cliche. I was trying to say success. Yeah, Chris was having so much sex. Yeah… so you know for me, I was already a man perse when this happened and the slower escalation of success. It got me a chance to actually wrap my mind around what it is. But when you actually become a person and figuring out who you are in front of people, and then you have something crazy happen in your life. People build you all the way up to try to tear you down.
Everyone knows that Trey’s nickname is “Mr. Steal Your Girl.” Late last year, the moniker led to questions and speculations about him being involved in the death of “Hit The Floor” dancer Stephanie Moseley.
See what he had to say about that incident:
I actually was really in a crazy place in my mind at that time. Because to place somebody’s death on somebody else, without knowing the dealings. Just based off speculation and wanting website hits and wanting this generation to get this…that’s sad. That’s real sad. You don’t know what spirits you playing with. And I won’t go into the depth of the situation because I respect the woman we’re talking about. I respect her family and I don’t want to talk negatively about anything in the situation. But it’s a sad story. Did anybody lose their life because of me? No. Point, blank period.
On wanting to have children
Charlemagne: Have you caught the Daddy Bug yet?
Man I want kids. I’ve been wanting children before you could even imagine. I raised all the kids in my family. My younger brother, he’s 20-years-old, he just had his first child. I remember when he was a child. I used to burp him change his diapers, now he got a baby, so…
Charlemagne: Just take the condom off
Naw. I don’t think it’s that simple for me. You just want to take the condom off, that sounds a little crazy. It’s more to it than that, I would like to believe. No, but I want kids, I want a family all of that. But I’m not in a rush to do it because people think that’s what should be happening in my life or that I need kids or my momma been begging me for a grand baby or any of that, I just want to make sure that it’s the right decision.
Charlemagne: That’s important you say that because a lot of girls think that only happens to them, like as they get older people are like ‘You gotta have a baby now!’ ‘You gotta have a family.’ No, guys get that too!
No everybody. My whole family. Every time I come home. Now, I got a nephew, they want me to have a baby like six months from now.
Angela: But I’m sure they’re very concerned about who you have a baby with.
Naw, actually they not too much, at this point.
I just was actually talking about it earlier with my friend. I remember a couple years ago, I had to go take a couple of tests. I actually didn’t know these people who were claiming that I had children. This is the type of stuff that I keep out of the media. It was a couple of accusations. Throughout my career, it’s happened a few times. I remember my momma went with me. And I was like ‘Momma, it’s cool. I don’t know this girl.’ She was like ‘But, if it is yours, we gotta see it for the blessing it is. And it’s going to be…’ No! I don’t know who this person is.
See what he said about the special woman in his life and monogamy on the next page.
It’s the job of artists to entertain us, but these stars took things to the next level. The 10 artists included on this list have done everything: offering their fans lap dances, letting them cop a feel, and even kissing them in front of thousands of people. That’s one hell of a way to say thank you for the support! We don’t know how eager we would be to get so close to these stars, but if the fans like it, then I guess we love it…
If you didn’t know, Ms. Jackson does this. The Velvet Rope Tour anyone? Janet Jackson has been seducing her male fans and making their fantasies come true for years. The music legend doesn’t see anything wrong with a little bump and grind with her fans, and sometimes, as she did in this video, she sticks her tongue in their mouths…
Yesterday, we reported on the heartbreaking news that actress Stephanie Moseley had been murdered by her husband, Earl Hayes, who later took his own life. Several reports have popped up since then with sources claiming to have knowledge of the circumstances that pushed Hayes to take Moseley’s life. One troubling report claims that Earl was convinced that Moseley had carried on a romantic affair with R&B singer Trey Songz.
So far, Trey’s people have remained silent regarding the allegations, but there is someone who has decided to speak on the reports and that person is 50 Cent. On Instagram earlier today, the rapper-turned-actor decided to butt in and question Trey’s dedication message to Stephanie.
R.I.P babygirl. Once an angel on earth, now watching over us from Heaven. You’ll b missed but never forgotten. Love
— Trey Songz (@TreySongz) December 9, 2014
“Trey how you get all in this sh! T man,” 50 wrote. “Talking like a pimp, Baby you was a angel here on earth an now in the sky. You’ll be missed but never forgotten. LOVE ? Call my phone.”
The post was later removed from 50’s account. It is unclear what he was hoping to accomplish with the post, but whatever the motive, it seems a tad insensitive considering that two people lost their lives less than 48 hours ago. As previously reported, 50 also addressed his estranged friend Floyd Mayweather, who was reportedly on FaceTime with Hayes before he shot Moseley.
Cornrows have been popular since the ’70s, but everyone (and their mother) was wearing them in the early ’00s, including many of the famous fellas whose music we do or did jam to. Here are 10 celebrity men who we were glad to see leave these looks behind:
When you see Jason DeRulo these days, he looks like this:
But as you’ll see if you click on the video below, at one point, while trying to get his career off the ground, DeRulo rocked some very interesting cornrows and a whole different sound:
Chris Brown may very well be the most talked about talent in hip-hop and R&B right now. He’ s passing drug tests, partying with the Kardashians and just dropped a hot video for the single “Flame” featuring Usher and Rick Ross.
Among everything he already has to celebrate, he may be soon popping and locking in a town near you as he recently teased a tour with the often baby oiled and always baby faced, Trey Songz.
The two sex symbols allowed their fans to eavesdrop on their Instagram conversation yesterday as they toyed around with the idea of hitting the road together soon.
Taking a creative approach to the announcement, the two Virginia natives shared a chat via Instagram that seem to leak from their inboxes. The two engaged in what appeared to be a private conversation as Trey proposed the idea of a tour and Chris responded that the idea was so crazy, it may just work. Along with a tour, the two apparently are linking up in the studio so they can make music and unite their panty-dropping powers. Later in the day the two confirmed that tour talks are definitely in the works although they have yet to decide on a name. They are inviting fans to help decide.
Oh lawd, I can only imagine: “The Pop Lockin’ and Panty Droppin’ Tour”? “Guns and Graffitti”? These venues are probably going to smell like thigh sweat, Chanel No. 5 and thirst. But I bet it will be one hot tour. Check out Chris’s new vid for Flames below:
The Kardashians Are On The Hunt Again: Kylie And Kendall Jenner Party It Up With Tyga, Trey And Breezy
Kylie and Kendall Jenner got pretty cozy with the some of the most desired men in hip- hop and R&B last night.
Chris Brown, Tyga and Trey Songz attended a house party last night and were joined by the ladies and a gang of pics of all the fun turned up on Instagram.
I’m still not exactly sure what these young ladies do besides party and “model”, but then again I’m still not completely clear on their sisters’ claim to fame either.
Looks like the young celebs had a ton of fun, but for Breezy’s sake not too much fun. Check out the pics:
Trey Songz told us a couple of weeks ago that all is well with he and fellow singer August Alsina. But it appears that there may still be a bit of frustration there. According to DJ TMillz, the “Na Na” singer recently flipped out and threw a female fans phone after she asked for a photo with him and then said, “Thanks, even though you’re not August Alsina.” T gave an account of the alleged incident through a series of tweets.

The look on the girls face when Trey Songz threw her phone was priceless lmaooo

Trey’s reps have yet to speak on the alleged incident, but TMillz insists that it actually happened.
I would never fabricate no story about a celeb.. Like wtf
DJ Tmillz (@DJTMILLZ) July 9, 2014
While that was an extremely rude thing for a fan to say, we hope that Trey wouldn’t allow a stranger to get the best of him like that.

There’s competitiveness in any field that you work in, but it’s always nice to see some camaraderie, support, and just have someone that you’re working with lend a helping hand… or a face.
In this list (which was inspired by a comment from poster Dark Child) we’re going to be bringing you musicians who appeared in other musicians’ music videos. Now, here’s the stipulation for their selections:
They have to either play the role of a love interest, they didn’t have a vocal part in the song, and/or they are merely there as a form of solidarity for their friend. So, with that said, let’s get it going with:
It seems like it was just yesterday that Trey Songz was talking about he just had to make it. Now the 29-year-old is boasting six albums under his belt with his latest release, “Trigga,” having hit shelves this past Tuesday. Not one to take days off, the R&B singer went from the BET Award stage last Sunday straight to the Essence Festival stage Thursday night where we caught up with the often-shirtless wonder to hear him talk about his longevity in the business and how he’s transformed over the course of his nine-year career. Check out what he had to say in the video up top.
‘I Aint Really Tripping Off Sex:’ Trey Songz Speaks Honestly About Why Dating Is Complicated For Him
It’s been nearly a decade since Trey Songz emerged on the scene with “I Gotta Make It.” 9+ years later and on the heels of his sixth album release, Trey confidently boasts that he did things his way this time around. Fans can be assured that “Trigga” is the Virginia native’s “most honest” album to date. We were recently able to catch up with the beloved R&B crooner with the million dollar smile for an extremely honest and straightforward interview, where he dished on dating obstacles, love, his desire to start a family and reconciling with August Alsina following their highly publicized falling-out.
MN: You had an amazing performance at the BET Awards last night. We were happy to see you and August Alsina reunite on stage. How did that reunion come about considering that highly publicized falling out you two had?
Trey: You know, with the publicizing of August’s emotions a few months ago, I never wanted to respond to that in a negative light. One thing that I’ve realized over the last couple of years, you know stepping into the game is that we gotta work together. We gotta uplift one another. We can’t bring each other down. I understood August’s frustration. As a young artist doing a million interviews and people only asking you about this other n*gga, you know? After 40 interviews, you gonna pop off at some point. He ain’t mean all of that stuff he said. We had conversations about it. So when it came time to think about how we could put together an incredible performance, it was nothing. Aside from me and August at BET, it was Chris there. It was Usher. It was the Lionel Richie tribute. Missy came out. It was so many different generations of music and R&B in the building. It just felt right.
MN: In the past, you expressed a desire to be seen as a multidimensional individual as well as for your talent, as opposed to just a sex symbol or a “piece of meat” as you put it. Does being viewed in that light make dating more complicated for you?
Trey: It does a little bit. First of all, sometimes I just wanna kick it. I wanna chill out. If I’m dealing with somebody, they wanna have sex talking about how I do this, that and the other. They’re like, ‘It’s a cut right here. What’s up?’ That’s kind of crazy. Because I am so sexually viewed, when I’m actually interested in somebody, that’s the last thing on my mind. When I feel somebody for the person that they are, I love their conversation and I love being around them and I ain’t really tripping off of sex. Sex is something that for me, when you’re viewed as a sex symbol or however you want to put it, you know it’s an object. It’s whatever. It doesn’t hold as much value—to me. When I fall in love and making love, I’m all down for that. It does get a little tricky because you don’t know what people’s motives are. But it’s cool because I put myself in that position.
MN: It was very thoughtful of you to send all of those flowers to Nicki Minaj. You sort of flooded out her studio with them. If that’s how you’re handling a business relationship, I can only imagine what you’d do for someone who you’re in love with. Would you consider yourself to be the romantic type?
Trey: Oh, most definitely. When I’m in love with somebody, you’re going to feel it. You’re going to know it. Nicki has really taken control of her destiny and she has for so long. She’s at the point where she’s the hottest she’s ever been and for us to do a record right now, it’s amazing. Outside of that, it’s her. It’s her brand as a woman. What she got going on is dope to sit back and look at. She’s literally in this predominately male-based business and she’s running sh*t. That should be applauded.
MN: Is there someone special in your life right now?
Trey: I got somebody that I care about, but we’re not at that place. We ain’t even dealing with each other like that. For me, I’m focused on becoming a legend and making sure musically, I handle mine. Outside of that, I’m not looking for love, but I do want it one day. I want somebody to fall in love with, have kids with, all of that. But I don’t wanna rush that. I don’t wanna get to a place where I rush it and that’s not it. I want to be able to have kids and watch them grow up and see them say their first words.
