While on the set with rolling out magazine for a photo shoot, rapper Diamond gave us her opinion on “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta,” the controversial Mona Scott-Young reality show that she previously turned down. Lil Scrappy’s ex turned Soulja Boy’s new love, was open about the program that she’s seemingly landed a recurring role on even without her consent.
“It just lets you know that you’re on the right track and doing the right thing,” said Diamond who’s been bashed in particular by show star Momma Dee. “I look at everything as motivation. If a person compliments it lets me know that I’m the right track and motivates me to go harder. If a person says something negative about me I feel the same way. You just come to a certain time where people and things don’t matter to you.” When asked if she wanted to say anything at all to the cast, the veteran ATL emcee had nothing but well wishes for them. “God bless them,” she said.
With the possibility of “Love and Hip Hop” completely out of the question, Diamond revealed that she’s been mulling over the possibility of doing her own reality TV show, only of course if she was the star. “I thought about doing an hour long special leading up to my album,” said Diamond, ” As long as I have control and production credits of the outcome, that would be something that I would do first and then I would think about doing an actual show down the line.”
In addition to speaking on her possible television debut, Diamond gave a few rare words on her boyfriend Soulja Boy, the rapper she calls her ultimate confidante. “He is understanding, supportive, God-fearing, my best friend and a go-getter,” said the obviously smitten emcee. “We’ve been knowing each other for five plus years.”
The 24-year-old is also delving into the world of business and is set to share aesthetics advice on a beauty website, PrettyGirlsGetPampered.com and open an online boutique. “[It will feature] affordable shoes, affordable tops and bottoms. I like high end designers but sometimes I don’t feel it’s needed on a day-to-day wear. It’s not about what it costs but how you wear it.”
