Karrueche Tran is a lovely person, but I’m a bit perplexed by her sudden media blitz. Of course, it’s all tied to the launch of her new clothing line (again, a bit perplexed, but get your paper), so it makes sense. Likewise, if Rihanna is going to go out of her way to attack this poor girl for no other reason than wanting her man, I suppose it’s about time she spoke out, too. Clearly I was confused on whether or not to cover this, but alas.
In her Rolling Out cover story, Karrueche opens about the “Birthday Cake (Remix)” where she dissed by Rihanna, how odd it was to her that she became to be followed the same way celebrities were, plus how she deals with the negative feedback from fans.
On becoming the center of attention herself:
“I first realized there was a change [when] more people would talk about me in blogs and such. And the paparazzi would take pictures and follow me when I wasn’t around Chris [Brown]. I was like ‘Chris is not here, why are you following me?’ But I was constantly seeing myself on blogs and websites. It was kind of weird.”
On Rihanna’s “sweeter than the rice cake” line and her other social media disses:
“It was very hard. I try my best to just ignore the negativity. Which is hard for me because it’s a lot to deal with. But I try to keep a positive mind and stay strong and not put energy into it.”
On the insults she receives online:
“The most challenging part about the attention was the negativity and the misconception from some people. People only see you in blogs and they think they know everything about your life. There are things that go public and everything that comes out is not the truth.”
On the formation of the clothing line:
“Chris [Brown] started his fashion line and wanted to start his women’s line. He asked me to be the head of the line. I brought along Ugo Mozie and MiMi Gazelle as my creative team.”
On what people can expect from The Kill:
“I think the name itself will stand out. Once people see the collection, they will understand our vision. It’s a unisex line and it’s only black and white. We aren’t copying any other lines or brands. We are just combining our thoughts and creativity and putting it all into this line.”
