Joseline says if you have kids dressing up like you for Halloween, you’re a pop icon like Michael Jackson! The skripper turnt singer from “Love & Hip-Hop” is Rolling Out’s latest cover star and she really lets loose in the feature interview.
Check out some excerpts below:
Besides ”Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” what are you working on?
My album is coming out; we’ve been working on my album. I have international records on the table; we’re just working.
The last song we heard from you was ”Bailar,” is the rest of the album going to have that feel?
[It’s] reggaeton, hip-hop, pop — I do everything. I sing and I rap in Spanish. Stevie got me doing everything in the studio. I love it, I’m excited that I can go from being a dancer to a pop icon. I’m actually a pop icon because little girls were dressing like me for Halloween. I thought they only dressed like Michael Jackson for Halloween.
How did it make you feel to see that?
It happened so fast. One year, it’s only been one year. I met Stevie as a dancer. We went into the studio I did my first song in two hours and that song is amazing. … It’s fun but it’s hard work. Going into the studio with Stevie is not easy. He’s [got] three Grammys. He doesn’t make bubblegum songs. I have a harder time going into the studio with Stevie and making a song with him. I feel like with everybody else, I’m just “that b—-” but when I go in the studio with him he tells me “It’s not right, you gotta do it again.”
So far, have you thought Joseline’s music is amazing? We’ll wait…

What can fans expect from your upcoming fitness tape?
[It’s called] “Body by Joseline.” Honey, they not gonna do it. [Laughs] I’m just kidding when I say that. It’s one-on-one, when you guys see “Body by Joseline” the DVD it’s actually like I’m speaking to you. I’m gonna really tell a woman how to lose their weight. A lot of women don’t know you’re not gonna lose weight unless you know your body and understand what you can and can’t eat. I was like 30 pounds heavier, I lost weight [by] myself.
What is it about Stevie J that makes you so infatuated with him?
I think Stevie and I are infatuated with each other. Because things go right but I curse him out and I slap him; everybody knows that. I think he’s like my boyfriend. I guess it’s like a relationship. I guess we go together.
You guess you go together?
I mean we do go together — it just works. I never met a guy that everything just works out. I’ve had a lot boyfriends but that one — we just work out.
Are you going to take it a step further and get married?
You have to wait till the [end of] ”Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” season two. You’ll find out, you’ll see. I love him; he’s a great guy. [The couple has reportedly married.]
If their relationship “works” then we all need to get a grasp on what it means to be in a relationship, we guess.
Joseline’s take on Tamar Braxton in 5… 4… 3… 2…
There are people like Tamar Braxton who have publicly dissed you. What would you like to say to them?
Well, I’m the baddest b—- out there in the streets. [They say] ”how dare this little immigrant girl come from Puerto Rico [and] just become a star.” You know I hate that s—! They’re jealous. Shout-out to Tamar Braxton, she wants to be a bad b—- like myself but she can’t be. She’s been trying to come out with music for how many years? [It’s been] f—–g 20 years since her sister [Toni] was a star. They don’t understand how a girl like me can come out and be this, but I have talent. It’s not my fault. When you got talent, you got talent. Shout-out to the haters; I love the haters. I do it for your amusement.
Gotta love it. Do you think Tamar will respond?
