Check out excerpts from her interview with Ladygunn Magazine:
What are you working on now?
I’m currently working on a lot of fresh new projects. My clothing line is in the works and a lot of other great things. Books to Movies. So many amazing projects.
What was it like when you heard Jay-Z drop pastry in the song “New York”?
That is the coolest thing ever! Who can say that they got a shout out from Jay-Z? It’s so freaking cool!!
How do you handle the paparazzi?
I just let them do what they do. If they find me while I’m out, there’s not much I can do. I’m not going to run. I just let them get their shots.
What is it like dating in Hollywood?
It’s like dating anywhere else. The only difference is that everyone knows your business and what’s going on. I must say that when you are spotted in Hollywood with anyone you are automatically with them, which is crazy.
Do you read blogs?
I try not to often, but I do sometimes. Twitter makes not looking at blogs almost impossible.
Who do you get advice from?
I get advice from my mom and dad all the time. Family advice is priceless. I often go to friends or my best friend. Friends are great. I don’t have many, so I cherish the ones I have.
