Brandy Covers PYNK Magazine

Brandy-For-Pynk-Magazine

Brandy covers PYNK Magazine and dishes the dirt on how she’s about to blow up. Brandy is floating on cloud nine in her own bubble that can’t be burst. From starring in BET’s hit show The Game, to being in the makings of dropping a hot album, to preparing to be some fine asz music executive’s wife, and managing being a mommy all at the same damn time she’s definitely in the zone.

Brandy is in her own lane and she’s comfortable with that. She also talks about why she think she would be best suited playing Whitney in the new biopic along with the tapings of a reality show ups and downs.

Brandy wants to know why she’s not recognized for her longevity in the game because she was getting it long before a Beyonce was even thought of.

Check out a few excerpts from her interview with PYNK Mag

On how she feels about not being recognized for her longevity and being one of the top chicks in the game

Sometimes I agree with it because I know there are a lot of talented people that have shown me a lot of love on top of my fans really expressing their love for me. Sometimes I think your ego gets in the way because you know you want everybody to feel that way about you. You want to get the credit. You want to get the props but I try not to live in that space because I know it’s ego. I’m just happy with being me. I’m happy with being able to be so connected in my being that I’m able to express that in my music. There are so many people who get the credit but they’re not really connected to their music. I would take the honesty and the connection with my music over the credit any day…but both would be nice! [laughs]”

 

On the current state of R&B and who she would love to collaborate with

I’m not okay with the current state of R&B. That’s why ‘Two-Eleven’ was so important to me. I wanted to do an album that contributed to that genre of music. I think it was very necessary for the music industry and the hearts of people. As far as newcomers, I hadn’t really been paying attention because I was so focused on the album but I can’t help but pay attention to Kelly Rowland. I admire her so much and would love to collaborate with her. Beyoncé is phenomenal and Rihanna is amazing too.

You and your family experienced great success doing reality TV. Would you ever do reality TV again?

 

“You know, I think I did reality TV at the wrong time. When I was on [Family Business] I wasn’t as consistent in my career. I wasn’t connected to my purpose at the time. After that, I said I wouldn’t do reality TV again but there are shows out there now like the ‘Mary/Mary’ show that are good. I would consider it if it were centered more on my career.”

 

What would be your dream [acting] role?

 

“Honestly, my dream role would be to play Whitney [Houston]. I studied her growing up, I knew her. I just feel that connection with her. I would love to be able to play her. I believe it could happen.”

 

You recently became engaged. How did you and your fiancé meet and how did you know he was “the one”?

“He’s a music executive. So, we actually met in the studio a long time ago. We reconnected at a music event sometime later and when we talked, it just felt like I knew him. Then I would just run into him in random places in New York…I’d walk into a restaurant for lunch and he’d be there. I ended up running to him at another event and he kept staring at me the whole night. It made me so uncomfortable because I thought he was married. So, I told him that he should stop staring at me because he’s married and it’s not a good look. He was like ‘what are you talking about? I’m not married.’ [laughs] From there, we just started talking on the phone. Then, dating. When he told me he was relocating to LA for his job, I just thought to myself, ‘he’s going to be my husband’. I took that as a sign.”

Beyonce Covers Vogue Bold & Fearless A Modern Day Fem

beyonce- vogue-fearless-mrs-carter

Beyonce aka Mrs. Carter spoke to Vogue and states she’s bold and fearless as Mrs. Carter. Bey claims she found her purpose once her bundle of joy Blue Ivy arrived. Beyonce calls herself a modern day feminist…….

Ms. Knowles doesn’t fit my image of a modern day fem, but between her Alter egos maybe the one who came forward growling on the track telling all the industry beotches to bow down might fit the profile.

Bey is definitely on some, she’s more vocal and visual now, than she’s been throughout her career. Jay-Z cockiness has rubbed off. Bey is definitely doing her own thing since her grand return….check out all of what Ms. Cocky had to say in British Vogue’s May Issue……………..for now here’s some highlights to salivate on.

‘I feel like Mrs Carter is who I am, but more bold and more fearless than I’ve ever been.”

‘It comes from knowing my purpose and really meeting myself once I saw my child. I was like, “OK, this is what you were born to do.” The purpose of my body became completely different.’ The way I view it and everything.

‘There’s a sensuality and an audacity that I’m okay with sharing. And I’m not uncomfortable about it. I’m not shy about it. And I feel like it’s important for women not to lose that sense of sensuality.’

Mjj wants to know…….Are you buying what she’s selling?

Joe Budden Covers Rolling Out Looking Like A Million Bucks

joe-budden-covers-rolling-out-the-

Joe Budden rapper turned reality star talks to Rolling Out Magazine. Joe the outspoken, very articulate rapper who you either love or hate gives up the tea about the real skinny on his off and on love affair with Tahiry aka Ms. Deliciousness.

If you’ve been watching the show and I know you have, then this interview answers all your questions…….as Joe do what he do, he holds nothing back….. his drama filled love life to his slipping back into the darkness to his new beginnings he lay it on the line….check out some excerpts from the interview

On becoming a better person since his bad boy days:

“My sole purpose is just to improve and evolve and keep the focus on me. Doing that, you pick up on certain things and you learn certain things. Looking at myself back then, my mind-[set] was in a very different place. Not to say volatile, but I wasn’t as intact as I am today.”

 

On his roller coaster friendship with his Tahiry:

“Closure would be nice. But that’s a luxury at this point between her and I. Would I prefer it? Yes. Will it ever be? Who the f–k knows?”

 

On his relationship with former friend Raqi Thaunda:

“That relationship is nonexistent. I won’t say it’s because of the show. It’s because of her. The show didn’t do anything — to me, anyway. That was bound to come to its end whether the show was happening or not.”

 

On being perceived as a ladies’ man:

“As much as it is communicated, I don’t view myself that way, It’s almost a joke when I hear it. To me, it’s as simple as, I’m attracted to women that a lot of other people seem to be attracted to as well. They’re all beautiful and amazing women — physically, at least. It doesn’t set me apart. But I’m very transparent with them. Maybe most other people are not. Maybe I live in a bubble, in that respect. But that pretty much is always what it is.”

 

On using drugs:

“It was just a severe case of me being overwhelmed. I’ve been in this game for a long time and people drinking and doing whatever happens to be their vice of choice — that never affected me. That was me. Not to say other people wouldn’t be influenced, but for me, it was never that. For me, it was, ‘If I wanna do something, I’m gonna do it.’ Whether other people agree or disagree.”

 

On fame not playing part in his mistakes:

“The fame part is the simplest part. You’re more recognized than the average person. Whoop-de-do. I’m filled with too much humility for that to move me one way or another. I’m not altered by it. But all the things that come along with fame probably affected me. And the way I deal with those things today is entirely different.”

Ladies Can Joe Budden Get It??????

Rihanna Talks About Dating Chris Brown With Rolling Stone

-Rihanna-Rolling-Stone-Talking -About-Chris Brown

Rihanna is riding for her man Chris Breezy. She says if it’s a mistake then she’s ok with that it’s her mistake to make during an interview with Rolling Stones.

They’re in a different place and talk out their problems like two responsible adults, no arguing other than the occasional Twitter or Instagram subliminals.

Rih Rih let it be known she ain’t hardly worried about Ms. Coochie Tran …Chris Brown belongs to her. Check Out a snippet of Rolling Stone’s interview

On Chris’ past abuse:

“He doesn’t have the luxury of f***ing up again. That’s just not an option. I can’t say that nothing else will ever go wrong. But I’m pretty solid in the knowing that he’s disgusted by that. And I wouldn’t have gone this far if I ever thought that was a possibility.”

 

On reactions resulting from her reunion with Brown:

“When you add up the pieces from the outside, it’s not the cutest puzzle in the world. You see us walking somewhere, driving somewhere, in the studio, in the club, and you think you know. But it’s different now. We don’t have those types of arguments anymore. We talk about s***. We value each other. We know exactly what we have now, and we don’t want to lose that.”

 Rihanna riding for her man and it's nobody's business

On expecting criticism after getting back together with Chris:

“But I decided it was more important for me to be happy, and I wasn’t going to let anybody’s opinion get in the way of that. Even if it’s a mistake, it’s my mistake. After being tormented for so many years, being angry and dark, I’d rather just live my truth and take the backlash. I can handle it.”

 

On being angry with Brown after their first split:

“I wanted him to know what it felt like to lose me. To feel the consequences of that. So when that (stuff) came back it hit me like a ton of bricks. Like, God, you’ve got to be kidding right now. But I got real with myself, and I just couldn’t bury the way I felt.”

 

Mjj says, Straight from the Horse’s Mouth…….. fans or haters will not dictate her love life……hmmmm
