Tameka ‘Tiny’ Harris’ talks about life with T.I. in exclusive photo shoot
Tell us about the first time you heard him call you his wife, and you were officially married. How did that make you feel?
I was kind of like ”damn, that’s me.” I felt like a lucky lady and I love it every time I hear it. It just does something to me … it sends a signal to my body and tells me to jump all over him whenever possible [laughs].
Well, it’s important to keep things hot and fresh in your relationship. Can you share some tips for other women who may struggle with how to keep things spicy in their own relationships?
You have to try new things and be open and talk about things that you’re interested in. You also have to talk about things that he’s interested in and see if you guys can come to a happy medium, and just get wild … that brings a little something extra to the bedroom.
So we’ve talked about you being a businesswoman, a mother and a wife. But at the end of the day, you still have to be a woman. How do you maintain peace and happiness in an industry and society that is always critiquing women in the spotlight?
I do it with confidence. I believe that confidence is everything for a woman. You just have to be comfortable with who you are and what you bring to the table. I’m at the point in my life where I pretty much don’t give a s— what people think … but if I see something that I don’t like on Twitter and I feel like I want to say something back, I will, because that’s just me. I’m not really quick with my temper, though, and I stay positive and surround myself with positive people. At the end of the day, positivity is the thing that you need the most … that and confidence.
I’m sure though that there are days when you don’t feel as confident as you typically are. How do you deal with those days when you just don’t feel pretty?
Again, it’s all about positivity. You’ve got to know that today is just a bad day, and you just have to take it in and keep moving because tomorrow can be a better day. I never let things keep me down, so if it’s a bad moment right now, I will deal with it keep it moving. And if I’m feeling like I’m not looking right, I just don’t take any pictures.
