Basically, the media is just hyping it up?
I’m sure you saw Gucci’s face tat. What were your very first thoughts about it?
When I saw it, I was like, ‘Oh my, God! Why did he do this?’ I spoke to him, and I asked him why he got the tattoo on his face. I said, ‘Do you like it?’ And he said, ‘Yeah,’ and that was it. I don’t like it at all. When I first saw it, my heart dropped. Why would he do that? Why would someone from his camp or one of his friends sit there—because I know he didn’t go by himself—and allow him to do that to his face.
What are you feelings about Amber Rose and women that are getting famous off their exes?
I mean, she didn’t do anything wrong. Kanye was attracted to her, and obviously she was attracted to him. They had a relationship; it’s not like she used him for fame. They had a real relationship, so I can’t really judge her from that. That could’ve happened to me, you, anyone. I’m sure she did like him because it lasted for awhile. When you date a celebrity, there’s always backlash ‘cause the first thing is that you’re dating him for his money. That’s what everyone says when you date a guy that has money. It’s so unfair to the real women that are really in love with their men. It’s so hard, but the guy has to know the she’s really with him for him.
The has to be an understanding within the relationship.
Exactly. Not the media or the public.
Would you ever date within the music industry?
Yeah, they’re just normal people. You both just have to have an understanding. That’s just what it is. You have to trust each other. For example, if I start dating someone, [the media] is gonna say, ‘Oh, you’re dating Gucci’s girlfriend.’ You just have to be strong because that’s their job.
Exactly. How are you going to flip the success you had last year into another great year? What can we look forward to from you?
As you know, I’m launching the lipstick line, so that’s really major for me. Once I get that out of the way, I’m gonna focus on a clothing boutique, a high-end boutique on South Beach. I also want to get into acting. There’s so many things I want to do as Keyshia Dior the brand. I want to make my brand really, really huge by doing different things. Probably come out with a perfume line, a weave line; I’m thinking of so many sources of income and business to add to my brand.
I know you have Dior Dolls, your fan base. Do you want to brand yourself sort of like Nicki in the way she has her Barbies?
No, not really. I thought I would have 90% male fans and 10% women, but it’s not like that. It’s like 85% of my fans that look up to me; girls that wanna be me. That’s how I create the Dior Dolls. This was nothing I thought about, and I just wanna do special things for them. If I’m at an event and I’m there, I would have party with me or be in VIP. Like, for all my Christmas, I couldn’t call all my fans, so I called the Dior Dolls. I just do different things for them, and I wanna start a Dior Doll foundation for kids.
