We’ve rounded up some of her quotes from the piece below. Read on!
7 CLASSY QUOTES FROM KREAYSHAWN’S COMPLEX COVER STORY
:: On her pal V-Nasty’s use of the N-word: “I’ve never said it one time in my motherfucking life… Everyone thinks I’m Vanessa [V-Nasty] and I have to answer [for her actions] every day in every fucking interview.”
:: “I’ve sat down and had talks with [V-Nasty], like, ‘Please, if you took this word out of your vocabulary, it would help your career. It would really help mine.’ She’s just been like, ‘This is who I am. This is how I was raised. I’m not gonna change for anybody,’ and I respect that. She doesn’t have to listen to me.”
:: On rapper Game saying he’s going to put a rifle in Kreayshawn’s face because of the N-word debacle: “I wanna slap a grown-ass man in the face.”
:: “Am I just supposed to get dissed every day and be a weak ass little white bitch? Fuck that shit. I’m tired of people disrespecting me.”
:: On her previous careers of dealing coke and pimping out girls on Craigslist: “I quit IKEA and started trapping full-time. I was driving around in a pink Mustang at two in the morning, no license, with like two 15s in the trunk, serving knots. Then these girls I met, they were on their hustle, too. They brought me this new idea, it was safer than selling drugs. I posted the links for them, took the anonymous pictures, and set up the dates and prices.”
:: On the relentless promo trail she’s been traveling down since signing a label deal: “I’m praying for a break for two weeks to finish the album. I can only see it from my point of view and my point of view is I’m stressed and I’m busy. Even Columbia says, ‘We’ve never worked an artist as hard as we work you.’”
:: “I never made anything with the intention of signing a record deal. It was just for fun. The moment I realized I could get a record deal, was when I got a record deal. I didn’t see myself getting famous.”
