For over two decades, Steven Jordan (aka Stevie J) has written and produced for some of today’s top recording artists in R&B and hip-hop.
The Grammy Award-winning musician has worked with the likes of Diddy, Faith Evans, Jay-Z, Notorious B.I.G, and Mariah Carey. The star of Vh1’s hit show “LHHATL,” Stevie is no stranger to the tabloids, baby mama child support drama and his on and off screen controversial relationship with co-star Joseline Hernandez, the self-proclaimed “Puerto Rican Princess.”
We caught up with the real-life hot topic and got candid as he reveals 10 things you didn’t know about him.
Who is your celebrity crush?
I got a couple of them. Faith Evans is definitely one of them. But that girl Rihanna is at the top. Riri and sleazy rings a bell.
When did you have your first kiss?
Oh man, I was like 7 years old; I was selling candy and chocolates. I told her she didn’t have to pay for the chocolate if she gave me a kiss.
Tell us something that you got away with and never told anyone?
It was Erykah Badu’s birthday. I was at the le Montrose hotel in LA. I found out what room she was in. I called her and sung happy birthday. Man, I sung like it was no tomorrow. After it all, she was like, “Who’s this?” and I never told anyone until this day.
What is your favorite movie?
The Godfather because it implements the family structure. I’ll do anything for my family, whatever it is. I admire that movie because he did anything and everything to make sure his family was good.
What is your greatest strength?
My greatest strength I believe is healing. I spent a lot of time in San Diego and in the middle of the desert praying for people that had AIDS, cancer, malignant tumors and things of that nature. I was able to heal people, so that is one of my strengths.
What inspires you?
My children. Waking up everyday knowing I got six beautiful children that need me, i’ll do anything for them.
If you lost your job or business today what is your fallback plan?
It’s not necessarily a plan. You can put me anywhere in the world and I’m going to get mine. People talk about Donald Trump. I don’t care who’s the president; I’m going to get mine for my family.
What do you want the world to remember about you when you’re gone?
One thing I want the world to remember about me is I did it all in the music game, selling over one hundred million records, five Grammys, TV shows, but one thing you will know is I made it for my children and the next generation so they can sit back and relax and make sure they allow the money to continue to grow.
