EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Teairra Mari Dishes On Her New "Love & Hip Hop" Castmates...And CRUSHING On Chris Brown


 


"Sponsor" singer and upcoming star of Snoop and Wiz Khalifa's upcoming movie Mac & Devin Go To The High School, Teairra Mari popped up on this week's episode of "Love & Hip Hop."  During an exclusive interview with TheYBF.com, the singer/actress dishes on her co-stars, that sucker punch situation between her bestie Emily B. and Kimbella, her next album, and her celebrity crush on Chris Brown....

 

Teairra Mari, who's celebrating her 24th birthday this week, is expanding her profile and entering the reality television realm on VH1's "Love & Hip Hop."   And she has an interesting take about Kimbella, you know, the chick who cheated with her bestie Emily's man Fabolous.

During an exclusive chat with TheYBF.com, she dished on all her castmates and her next moves in the music game. Check it:

On her friendship with castmate Emily B.

"We met through mutual friends a few years ago and we just clicked. I have a small circle of good friends and she’s a part. We are such opposites so it levels out. I can be a bit of a firecracker and she brings a bit of calmness."

On the Kimbella drama from Monday night's episode when she brought Emily to Kim's party

"I didn't know it was Kimbella's party before I invited Emily to come with me.  But once I found out, I didn't think it was a big deal. Emily was over it…it's over now. Let the girl live."

On if she will become a regular castmate

"I have to see how the rest of this season plays out. [Sidebar: The ladies are still filming.] I’m not saying 'No" as of now.  I’d be open to it."

 

Her personal opinions on the other "Love & Hip Hop" chicks

"I've known Olivia over the years through the industry.  I like her...she is a tough cookie!

I love Chrissy. She’s like a big sister. She’s a very loving person. She has a hard side but she’s a sweet woman. She’s good at giving advice. That tough exterior can easily be cracked.

Emily, that’s my baby! She's a sweetie and so stylish. She’s also very encouraging. (SIDEBAR: Teairra says she indeed heard rumors that Fabolous and Emily are back together but she can't confirm because they haven't spoken on it recently.  Even though Em confirmed it a while ago to us.)

Yandy is a nice girl. I didn't really get a chance to get to know her, but I didn't have any issues with her.

Kimbella is a sweet girl and she’s misunderstood. She’s really likeable. I felt bad about judging her based on what I'd heard from the other girls.

I love Somaya. I have so much respect for her grind and ambition. She’s a go-getter."

On reality tv possibly having a negative affect on her career

"I would hope it has a positive impact.  My fans hear my music and they know my personality. Whether you hate it or love it, hopefully you can respect it.  I don’t know if being a reality star is what I want to do, but my friends and family tell me I am made for TV."

On folks hating on reality stars

"From my true supporters, I haven’t gotten negative feedback.  On all my songs, I’m like I am in real life. I’m feisty and I have potty-mouth.  But I am who I am. But I was nervous when considering if I am  making the right decision. But what do I have to lose?  This could be an opportunity for me and hopefully God will let me receive it." 

 

Details about her next album and new record deal

"I just signed a record deal with Rico Love. It’s really sexy bedroom music with a new jack swing. It’s the kind of music I wanted to do my whole career.  I sing it and I mean it. I know what I'm talking about at this point in my life.  My album will be finished in January and my fans can expect to hear a new single by the end of the month."

 

On her next career moves in the biz

I just shot a movie called Mac & Devin Go To The High School with Wiz Khalifa and Snoop Dogg so I hope to get Wiz on the album and maybe Tyga.

On separating herself from other female singers

I’m not trying to do the pop-star songs. I grew up loving Jodeci and Mary J. Blige, so my music will be soulful songs with a funky edge.

On the celeb men she swoons over

Well, I like older men!  So I will say, Maxwell, Eric Benet, Tyson, and Snoop Dogg.  But I have to admit, I love me some Chris Brown!

I can not understand why

I can not understand why people keep making Teairra Mari relevant. She is not a factor in HIP HOP PERIOD and her opinion means nada! She hasn't done ish, so let her be! I'm not hating, I'm just stating the facts.

Through a bag, you will be

Through a bag, you will be able to tell them what grade you are a person. For example today is what you look like the back of the bag, we can see you today, your mood or style of dress today. So the bag is very important. I have to choose what kind of bag to make you more confident? I think that Marc Jacobs designed for Marc Jacobs bags and Marc by Marc Jacobs Bags are very good. Especially the Marc by Marc Jacobs Handbags and Marc Jacobs Handbags. Their popularity is that you want to also think of. Also, if you are a young and stylish girl, then you pay attention to the Marc by Marc Jacobs!

I don't think she is taking

I don't think she is taking hits at rihanna. Hell, Rihanna may have success NOW but she and everyone else in the industry was a nobody too at some point. Half of the stars people worship don't even write or produce their own music. Google The Dream, Just Blaze, etc.

Well, at the end of the day

Well, at the end of the day it's better to be doing something and still puttingyour face out there than not doing anything. These youngins need to start thinking outside of the box and either create something new, or venture out into other things. Last time I saw her here she was going to church after her DUI, I guess not she's graduated from church to reality TV. I wish her well.

I heard they are married now

I heard they are married now so stop it. I am not a Chrissy fan at all but as a woman and I assume you are a woman as well, you know that telling someone (a female) that the person she loves does not want to marry her is extremely spiteful and hurtful. Say something constructive, this is just plain ole' stupid. Who the heck knows what going on between Chrissy and Jim except for Chrissy, Jim and God? Anyway, Team Yandy!

Good for Her , She's

Good for Her , She's Persistent & TALENTED. Her & Breezy would look Good Together. What I'm worried about is She spoke NICELY of Yandy & Kimbella & WE KNOW Chrissy will not tolerate that being that she's a hater , hope she don't try to sabotage Her new Career moves.

Chrissy is such a bully!!!!!!! I think its ridiculous how she bullies her weight around like she's somebody important. To me it looks like shes trying so hard to wedge herself between people that mean something to Jim Jones. I hope he wake up and notice before its too late. ******* jims mother, yandy(sweet person), the guy that worked on the mother video. I think she's so pathetic to have that much hatred in her towards those people.

Ok, Chrissy makes me sick.

Ok, Chrissy makes me sick. First off, you claim to be such a leader and strong, yet you're running aroung buying dudes wedding rings? Come on ma, you are seriously pressed!! Secondly, you've manage to ruin all relationships that Jim has with anyone outside of you. You're thinking that he'll eventually realize that you are in the ONE and he needs to legally wife you!! It's not gonna happen until he wants to and that's if he will ever want to. See, no man wants a loud mouth, bossy woman. There is power in silence. You don't have a job, no education or any business to tend to other than his. You are the weakest out of all the women on the show!! I bet you good money that he will probably leave you and find a real woman who wouldn't do half of the crap that you claim is part of being "his woman". The majority of crap that you're taking off of him is out of desperation and stupidity!! Get a clue!! No relationship is perfect, but you are the only chick on the show that has no life!!

Good for Teairra Mari because

Good for Teairra Mari because she will get her name out there. I have never heard of her, Emily, Yandy, Somaya or any of the others from Season 1. There are all nobodies and are trying to use it as a platform to receive a check and get paid for endorsing a lip gloss, clothing, etc. It will not last but get a check while you can.

Teairra girl you better stay

Teairra girl you better stay away from my litlle husband Chris "Breezy".

Kimbella is usually a pretty girl but damn her face looks like she feel in a vat of chicken grease ewww! I like the dig Emily got in on her!
