Karrueche Tran continues to put on a brave face despite the negativity surrounding her former relationship with Chris Brown.
Not shying away about her relationship with the “Beautiful People” singer, Karr dishes on the famous love triangle, being in the spotlight, and much more.
Peep excerpts of the interview below:
On the media: “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 the love triangle: “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. 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 what she wants others to know: “I hope people can learn from my story. I want to be remembered as someone who remained positive through such a negative situation. Regardless of what you’re put through or what is going on in your life, keep a positive spirit. That will help you get through it.”
On 2013: “Honestly, all I want is happiness. There was a lot of dysfunction and negativity. I just want to be happy. I have so much fun and I’m a better person when I’m happy. That’s all I want in 2013. Everything else will fall in place.”
On her clothing line, The Kill: “Chris [Brown] started his fashion line and wanted to start his women’s line,” she says. “He asked me to be the head of the line. I brought along Ugo Mozie and MiMi Gazelle as my creative team.” “I think the name itself will stand out,” she says of the clothing line. “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.”
