Zonnique Was Proud Parents Shared Divorce On Show
Zonnique Pullins (aka Nique Nique) from the fun loving VH1 reality series, T.I. and Tiny: The Family Hustle is all grown up. You may also remember her from the girl group, OMG Girlz who traveled alongside the former boy band Mindless Behavior. Recently, the 21-year-old spoke with Madame Noire about on her personal style, new EP, and why she was proud that her parents decided to share their marriage drama on their reality show. Check the excerpts below.
On her new EP, “Love Jones,” co-written with mom Tiny:
I wanted to start with an EP so that people can get a taste of who I am and so people can get really get to know me. That’s really how I picked the songs. I was having a little trouble putting them in order. Until I watched the Love Jones movie. I didn’t watch it until after I picked the name and then I wrapped everything around that and kind of made it a story line. Which has R&B, pop and hip-hop on it.
On working with her mom:
It can be difficult. It can. We do have a really cool relationship so we can talk about just about everything but when it comes down to us being in the studio together or me singing for her, she is a really big critic.
On the family dynamic now that T.I. and Tiny have separated:
It seems really the same to me, I would say. I still get to see pops and all my other siblings all the time. I feel like they still see each other. Everything is still the same.
Her thoughts on the Family Hustle “getting real”:
I was really proud. I felt like we are about to show some real drama. Our show is always so family oriented and always so positive. Even if it starts bad, it always ends positive. So I wanted to see some messy stuff. I was ready for it to be a little different and for people to see what really goes on inside a marriage.
On her personal style :
When it comes to my style, I feel like I haven’t been shopping in a while. I am really good at mixing up stuff. You know how when you were in high school you have to mix and mingle with your pieces.
