Lala Anthony On Beyonce’s Push Party & Paparazzi
Amidst constant headlines about her rumored split from NBA baller husband Carmelo Anthony, La La is in relatively good spirits. During a recent interview she opened up about about constantly being followed by paps on special, even on special occasions. She says,
You kind of get used to it, and what can you do? Like my mom says, ‘Worry when people don’t care about you.’
When her son Kiyan, 10, asked why photographers were following him everywhere recently, she told him,
It’s getting hot outside and they’re trying to get summer fashions for the magazines, and he followed up and said, ‘Mom I’m wearing a sweat suit, that’s not summer fashion.’ I kind of try make it fun for him so he doesn’t view it as a negative thing.
Along with Kiyan, La La says that her mother is her rock, especially during rough times.
My mom has common sense… I’m coming at her with all this complicated stuff, and she’ll just give me the most simple answer… and it always makes sense. I have a great support system of friends and family, but when it gets down to the nitty gritty, I’m like, ‘Mom.’
She also explained the message behind her Instagram on the night of the Met Ball, when she posted “Unbreakable.” At the time, it was La La’s first public appearance since the split.
I wanted people to know that no matter what life throws at you, you got to be strong, you have to be fearless, things are gonna happen, life is amazing and guess what life sucks sometimes too, you have to be unbreakable, especially to have to go and walk that carpet alone, that’s not the easiest thing in the world.
La La also discussed celebrating Beyoncé at her big Carter Push Party bash with other celebs like Michelle Williams, Serena Williams, and Kelly Rowland. She gushed,
Oh, I had a great time it was so much fun hanging out with friends. It was a beautiful day in L.A., so much fun.
She’s beautiful, stunning, absolutely beautiful.
