Trina Responds To French Montana Dating Rumors
The hip hop rumor mill has been swirling all year with talk that Bad Boy rapper and NYC native French Montana is coupled up with thicky-thick Miami rapstress Trina.
Despite being photographed hanging out together on numerous occasions, both Trina and French Montana have danced around confirming their relationship status, but Trina finally decided to clear it all up in a recent interview with Mara The Socialite of 4UMF.
Check out what she had to say below:
On French Montana dating rumors:
“I’m not a couple with nobody. French Montana is an amazing person; he’s a great person, he’s been a great inspiration to me since he came into my life as far as working, business, career. He showed me some different things that honestly, I didn’t really get the last couple of years of my career. I was at a very pivotal moment, like a very bad space and him being a guy, he’s not a guy that listens to a Trina music, you know. So for me to go into the studio to work with him, to do a record for him, and he’s like really putting out something new, and I’m like, ‘ummm, I don’t know. I’m just not really motivated right now.’ And he was like, ‘I don’t understand what that means.’ And then one of my girls was like, ‘play him your new stuff.’ And I was like, ‘no, no, no, no.’ And he begged me, and I did, and he was impressed.
It was just a different type of chemistry, and once I played it, he was like, ‘yo, you need to put this out now.’ It gave me like a different sense of reassurance, and I like that about him. He’s a very positive person, he’s a great, fun person to be around, and that’s what I love about him. I guess when people see you with somebody, they automatically think that you’re together. If we were together, if we become together, I think you guys would know.”
On what she’s looking for in a relationship:
I’m not looking for a boyfriend, I’m not looking for somebody to date – I’m not a dater, I never was good at dating, but if I decide to get into something, then you’ll know. I’m looking for a serious situation. A husband, a family, a life beyond everything that I’ve lived in my life, and that’s where I am in my life where that’s concerned.
Hmmm. So it sounds like maybe French just wasn’t trying to step up to the plate and make Trina wifey…..we still wouldn’t be surprised to hear them give it another shot in the near future though.
Trina also addressed the slander that she received from fans and critics after doing a tribute to her fellow female rapstress Nicki Minaj during the BMI Awards in NYC last month, complete with a blonde wig and Nicki-esque get up.
Hit the flip to hear what else she had to say…
Trina hit the stage at the BMI Awards last month to pay tribute to BMI honorees Cash Money Records, where she dressed as Nicki Minaj and performed her hit song “Moment For Life,” garnering more than a few sideeyes from fans and critics confused as to why she would pay homage to Nicki.
She had this to say about the response to her “all Nicki everything” performance.
“I don’t respond to criticism. Honestly, I don’t care really. I feel like people are so quick to say stuff before they know exactly what’s going on, and it makes you look a little stupid. I get the whole fact of when you do a tribute to somebody, people have always felt like it’s somebody you pay homage to that’s been in the game for a hundred years or so. I don’t feel like rules should really apply; it wasn’t about that. It wasn’t about me, it was about Cash Money.
Cash Money is a very prominent and very successful record company that’s been around for a long time, and Baby and Slim, that’ s like, I’ve been known them for years, so it’s like family. And to honor them and pay tribute towards them, I thought it was just amazing. Nicki is the only female on their roster that is out, so the tribute was me doing a tribute to her, and I didn’t see anything wrong with that. I don’t have a problem with her. I think people that saw something wrong with it are the people that have a problem with her, and I saw a lot of the fans and a lot of my fans and a lot of other fans that totally was like in a rage, but I just feel like people should just get a life and mind their business and stop living so miserably and just enjoy whatever it is that you’re doing and stop putting so much effort into being negative towards what somebody else is doing.”
And there you have it.
