How do you feel about folks saying it’s weird that you, Ciara and Kim Kardashian hang out together?
It’s definitely three people from different worlds and backgrounds, but to me, I feel like when it’s cool people, it’s not a lot of work. When everyone’s easy to be around, it doesn’t take much to put people in a room and have a good time. It’s kind of weird to me when people say it’s odd because you only know a perception of someone. And when you get to know them, they’re just like you. I don’t pick my friends based on what they do.

Who’s your best friend in the industry?
Kelly Rowland and Ciara. I’ve known both of them the longest. I’m also very close with Trina, I’m close with Solange. There’s quite a bit.

Will any of them be your Maid of Honor?
They’ll all be at my wedding. My Maid of Honor is my cousin, Dice, who grew up with me in the same house. We’ve been through everything.

What about bridesmaids?
We’re not having any bridesmaids. We’re having a kind of non-traditional wedding. We’re just keep it simple with one maid of honor and one best man. Nothing we’ve done thus far has been traditional.

Will you be having an intimate wedding or huge?
It’s going to be [a] huge [wedding] in New York. July, some time. It wasn’t my decision, it was Melo’s. 

Are there certain requests both of you must have for the wedding?
He’s that guy, I’m not that person, I’m pretty simple. He wants red involved in some way and he wants red velvet cake. That’s his I-have-to-have. No one can tell me differently.

Come August, will we be calling you La La Anthony?
I haven’t decided yet. I’ve been talking to my circle about it, but I don’t know yet. Vazquez-Anthony is so long. I really need to think about that and figure it out. I think I’m going to use both because people know me as La La Vazquez. I don’t want to ditch it completely. I’ll probably keep both.

Are you and Melo taking bets on where Lebron is headed?
