A Long Convo With... Trey Songz (Pg. 2)

Yeah, I mean, that’s definitely—

And for a lot of people Twitter is like that.

Yeah, ’cause if you think about Twitter people will say some shit that’s totally outlandish that they wouldn’t say in a room full of people but it’s basically a room full of people. But the sense of my world being different and every artist for that aspect who’s gotten a certain level of success and notoriety, when you walk into a room, the room changes and that happens most of the places you go. Your world is not like everyone else’s. If you walk into a certain room, you gon’ have to sign pictures, you gon’ have to sign autographs. Yeah, you have to give yourself and even when you’re surrounded by people that work for you, everything happens when you want it to happen. Living in a world like that, it definitely can be lonely and you definitely want friends but at the same token I believe you gotta know what’s what. This shit is some of the loneliest shit. I might have women in a great sense of urgency tonight that are excited to see me and love my songs and love me as an artist but when it come down to it, I’m by myself. In a lot of cases.

You go to sleep by yourself…

[Smiles] Sometimes. 

In the beginning of your career, how did you get used to women throwing themselves at you?

Not arrogantly, but [getting] women has never really been a problem. It’s definitely different when women throw themselves at you but I’ve never really been too excited about the groupie thing ’cause groupies they know what it is they want and they want that and that only. I don’t get too involved with people that want me for a perception… There’s so much to Tremaine that Trey Songz doesn’t embody. So for people that wanna know me or wanna be with Trey Songz, once again you go back to the relationship thing. If that’s what I want then that’s cool but if I don’t feel like that then I’m good… When I have somebody I actually care about, sex is not what the relationship is generally based off, especially for a woman that I don’t see or talk to very often. If I come into your city and we have sex and we spend time together and you love the time we spend together, the sex will make you feel less valuable. If we don’t have sex you’re more understanding of what I’m doing. You don’t feel as used. Even though it may be what you want, it may not be what I want.

Do you want to settle down eventually, get married?


Have kids?

I think that’s what life is about. In this profession you spend so much time chasing your dreams. You trying to get whatever it is you see in your head and live it all out, achieve all this success, you look back and all this time passed ’cause you put your whole life into it.

Some people get so far into what they do as a career that—

Yeah, and that’s not even just chasing superstardom. That’s whatever you do in your life ’cause it’s so instilled in you. You go to college, you go get this job, you have a career, you become a professional and you’ll have time for whatever else after that but you look up and you’ve wasted a lot of real life. [Whispers] It’s a gift and a curse.

Cardi B Comments On Government Shutdown: "Our Country Is In A Hellhole"

Cardi B wanted to give her two cents on the now-25 day partial government shutdown. The Grammy-nominated rapper got political on her Instagram page, stating that she believes our country is in a "Hellhole" and she feels terribly for those affected.

"It’s been a little bit over three weeks. Trump is now ordering, as in summoning, federal government workers to go back to work without getting paid," she said. Cardi continued by telling people not to drag former President Barack Obama's partial government shutdown into the conversation, as his shutdown was for a better reason than Trump's dream border wall.

"Now, I don't want to hear any of y'all motherf**kas talkin' 'bout, 'Oh, but Obama shut down the government for 17 days,' Yeah, b***h! For healthcare!" she continued. "So your grandma could check her blood pressure and you b****es could go check y'all p***y at the gynecologist with no motherf**kin' problem. This sh*t is really f**kin' serious, bro. This sh*t is crazy. Like, our country is in a hellhole right now. All for a f**kin' wall."

The Invasion of Privacy MC continues by stating that she is "scared" and feels badly for those who aren't able to be compensated for their work.

"Now, I now a lot of y’all don’t care…  b***h I’m scared," she concludes. "This is crazy, and I really feel bad for these people that gotta go to f**kin' work without getting f**kin' paid."

Watch her comments below.

R. Kelly's Former Manager Will Reportedly Surrender To Georgia Police For Threats Towards Savage Family

James Mason, R. Kelly’s former manager who is being accused of sending terrorizing, threatening text messages to the father of one of Kelly’s accusers, is reportedly surrendering to Georgia authorities.

According to The Blast, Mason will surrender in Henry County, Ga. on Wednesday (Jan. 16) after a judge issued a warrant for his arrest, citing “terroristic threats and acts.” A police report obtained by the site states that Mason told Timothy Savage, the father of Kelly’s alleged cult member Jocelyn Savage, that he was going to “f**king kill” him when he saw him, and that he was going to harm him and his family.

A second manager for Kelly, Don Russell, is also reportedly under investigation for allegedly harassing and threatening the Savage family for participating in the six-part docu-series, Surviving R. Kelly. 

Mr. Savage was reportedly texted by Mr. Russell, who said it would “be best for him and his family if the documentary [Surviving R. Kelly] does not air." During a phone call that was put on speaker, Russell reportedly threatened to reveal information about Mr. Savage if he did not pull out of the doc.

Kelly is under investigation in both Georgia and Illinois, which is reportedly a direct response to the allegations made in the Lifetime docu-series.

Porn Site Condemns Users After Searches For R. Kelly's Sex Tape Increase

Searches for the infamous sex tape recorded by R. Kelly and featuring a minor has seen an uptick, and a porn site is condemning its users from trying to find it, because child pornography is illegal.

According to The Blast, porn site xHamster reportedly said that searches for the term ‘R. Kelly’ are up 388 percent since the beginning of January. Of course, this coincides with the release of the six-part Lifetime docu-series, Surviving R. Kelly, which chronicles over 20 years of indecent and immoral behavior towards teenage girls and women.

The site noted that they do not have the infamous tape that involves the controversial musician having sex with and urinating on an underage girl, nor will they ever carry it and other videos like it on their site.

“The R. Kelly tape is not on xHamster, nor would we ever allow it to be,” representatives for the site told The Blast. “Regardless of the news or sensation, a tape featuring underaged is both illegal and immoral.” xHamster also says they will be “disabling searches and putting up messages alerting any searches that the content is not acceptable.”

One of the messages on the site says “Please consider that in searching for and viewing such content, you may be re-victimizing a minor who could not consent.”
