Miami native, Trina, has just recently hit the airwaves again with the release her sexy new single titled ‘Damn’, featuring singer Tory Lanez.

While promoting her new single and album, Trina talks Love & Hip Hop Miami rumors, dating Lil’ Wayne and more. Check some of the excerpts from the interview below.
On doing Love & Hip Hop Miami:
Well, I’ll come back up here and tell you if I decide to do it. Those are rumors. I did not smack anybody and I’m not filming. Do not believe the hype. When I come back up here, I will confirm to you whether or not I’m doing anything.
Her thoughts on reality television:
Um. I’m more private. This generation is so disrespectful and reckless. I didn’t come up in that type of stuff [reality TV]. You have to know what’s respect. Now everybody wildin’ out. My life is private, but it’s cool. I do normal stuff: I wake up, I cook. If I was to do that, you would probably see a side of me that will people would not think that would be me.
On being submissive in a relationship:
In a relationship, I am the person that you are not going to be thinking I am. I am not the Trina that you heard on the record. I am the Trina that is so great, that you are so much of a f*ck boy you mess it up.
Her thoughts on men that she would date:
I like cool guys. Guys who have respect and know how to treat a woman. Be nice, be romantic.
On dating younger men:
I would definitely date a younger man. Like you young, but you solid. Like he would have to have experienced some things.
On being in a four year relationship:
I am not going to be in anything for nobody, honey. I’ve been in a relationship for 4 years. Almost gotten married, almost thought I was having a kid. And when I left the relationship I was supposedly looked at as the craziest stupid person. I don’t care. You disrespected me, I’m out.
On dating Lil’ Wayne:
Wayne is a very great person and he never did anything wrong to me. The thing is, when I dated Wayne we were just real young. My album is out. Your album is out. It’s crazy. And by young, I mean, insecure. We weren’t mature enough to be in a full relationship.
On her beef with French Montana:
It doesn’t have to be a ‘I hate you. You hate me.’ I’m not a bitter person or whatever. He was a cool person. I just felt like as your friend, you kind of like was disappointing and disrespectful. I’ve moved on from that. He’s moved on from that so it’s not a big issue.
On her new album:
I talk about a lot on the new album. It’s more vulnerable, more personal. It’s fun, it’s sexy, it’s raw….At first I didn’t feel like it was complete, but now it is. The album is dropping in April.
On working with Rico Love on her new album:
I wouldn’t have been able to complete this album without Rico [Love]. Rico is just one of them guys that when it comes to music, he’ll let me be myself and speak about me evolving.
On working with Tory Lanez:
I was in Miami, at the studio and he came by with a couple of records. We did the records and that was it. It was dope!
On Trick Daddy’s comments:
It’s a good and bad part to it. I feel like what he said wasn’t so bad. It’s a lot of women that need to get their self together. Not because of a man, for yourself. I think him using a different race of women is what made it sound crazy.
On performing at Trump’s Inauguration:
No, it’s not about the money. I don’t even keep up with the Trump news because I’m still in shock that Obama leaving.
On what she’s working on besides music:
I have this record label called RMG (Rockstar Music Group). I have a couple of artists who I’m signing, some girls they’re so so dope. Besides that, there is some stuff that I’m doing for TV which I’m not really speaking on.
