Tiny covers the latest issue of Rolling Out Magazine and discusses everything from being married to TI to the OMG Girlz!
It’s common knowledge that you have gone from being just an artist to a woman who is intimately involved in so many aspects of the entertainment industry. How do you continue to evolve and add these impressive notches to your belt?
I think a large part of it is that I actually love what I’m doing. I enjoy being behind the scenes when it comes to the music, and I think that one of my greatest achievements is creating the OMG Girlz. I say that because I built them from scratch, so seeing them evolve and grow means so much to me … it shows me that my hard work and ideas are paying off.
Speaking of the OMG Girlz, do you ever experience déjà vu when you see them going through situations that were reminiscent of your time with Xscape?
Yes, I do. Just dealing with the girls, I definitely feel it. I just try to talk to them and give them advice based on the things that I went through personally. Those are my babies, though … it’s my daughter and my nieces so it’s easy and it’s better.
Being a businesswoman seems to come easy to you, but how have you balanced that with being married. After being in a longtime relationship (with rap star T.I.), has marriage changed anything?
A lot of people say that things change — and maybe my husband might say something different — but I don’t really see much of a change. I just feel like I’ve been doing some of the same things as a married woman, that I was doing years before … so it’s kind of like continuing on with the papers now. Honestly, I’m just enjoying it. I’m enjoying being called a wife, because it’s different than just being in a relationship … it feels a little better now.
Tell us about the first time you heard him call you his wife, and you were officially married. How did that make you feel?
I was kind of like ”damn, that’s me.” I felt like a lucky lady and I love it every time I hear it. It just does something to me … it sends a signal to my body and tells me to jump all over him whenever possible [laughs].
Well, it’s important to keep things hot and fresh in your relationship.
You have to try new things and be open and talk about things that you’re interested in. You also have to talk about things that he’s interested in and see if you guys can come to a happy medium, and just get wild … that brings a little something extra to the bedroom.
