Ray J’s relationship with Kim Kardashian and his beef with her now husband Kanye West is far behind us. But he does have some thoughts on both topics and, because this is Ray J we’re talking about, they were entertaining AF.
The Love & Hip Hop star sat down for an interview with Joe Budden’s Complex show Everyday Struggle and gave an earful about his portrayal in Kanye’s “Famous” video, the married life and why he chose to chill F out on reality TV. But first, the juicy part!
Contrary to what we thought, Ray J isn’t at all mad about Kanye West using a naked wax figure of him for his “Famous” video. In fact, he thinks its a work of art. “It’s all art,” Ray J says. “It’s all a part of whatever society has allowed us to do and be. You have to accept that.” Yet and still, the Scoot-E Bike creator thinks he should have gotten a check in the mail for the project. “Was it creative? Yeah. Was it over the top? Yeah. Did I get a check from it? No…At the end of the day it’s all love….that whole book is closed.”
While we’re on the Kim topic, remember Ray J’s shady diss track “I Hit It First“? Well, he says he’s not totally proud of it but he made a lot of coin from it. “[Before I got married] I was getting paid a lot for the dirty sh*t. It’s like I know I wanna do right, but there’s a lot of checks for the f*ckery. So I had to balance it, like f*ck that money. Its hard to do.”
As far as his own business is concerned, Ray says he and his wife Princess have no plans to leave Love & Hip Hop any time soon, but he did make a conscious effort to clean up his act.”You’ve seen me in season one and season two. [My behavior] was just uncalled for. A lot of things I did, I was ashamed of myself. It was good to watch it back, cuz it was like ’woah that does not look good.'”
Wait a minute…does that mean the grown and mature Ray J is here to stay? We are so here for it! Head over to Everyday Struggle to see the full interview.
Ray J is more worried about starting a family with his wife Princess than he is about Kanye West. But he may need some err…assistance with the baby making.
