TRINA

 

The baddest chick is back for round 3.  After gaining notoriety for being Trick Daddyís first lady in the MIA, sheís back with her third album, The Glamorest Life.  This time, Trinaís not just driving the music.  SheĎs become a full-fledge entrepreneur with her own perfume line (Diamond Princess), modeling agency (Diamond Dolls), sitcom pilot (Friends Like These) and clothing line (Denim and Diamonds).

 

Chronicmagazine.com:  Youíre on your third album now.  Do you still worry about the reception your projects receive?

 

Trina:  Not as much.  I feel great.  I feel confident. I had a lot of creative control.  I honestly got in the studio and did what I felt like doing and picked out the records that I wanted to do.  Iím definitely feeling good about it.  I touch on a lot of different topics.  I have some club records.  I worked with Signature, Mannie Fresh, Jazze Pha, and Cool and Dre. 

 

Chronicmagazine.com:  How are you different as a person?

 

Trina:  As a person, I just try to stay very focused.  I donít want to keep doing the same thing I was doing on my first album when Iím on my third.  Iím always changing because I understand the business. I also try to stay humble, treat people [right] and stay loyal to myself. 

 

Chronicmagazine.com:  You look like youíve been working out.

 

Trina:  Thanks.  I have a trainer Iím working with.  You know, you get used to eating and doing certain things.  Iím just getting adjusted.

 

Chronicmagazine.com:  Itís your third time around.  Is the music still fun for you or is it more like a job?

 

Trina:  Yeah, simply because I had more creative control.  I did a lot of work on that album. Now the game of course, I wouldnít call fun.  Itís a business.  I have to treat it like a business.

 

Chronicmagazine.com:  As a woman, do you feel like youíre treated equally?

 

Trina:  I think women feel a lot more pressure.   I think we should have more unity.  We should be supportive of each other. When there are ego problems, it causes conflict. I try to stay away from that.

 

Chronicmagazine.com:  You have a lot of other things going on.   You have a perfume out Ė Diamond Princess Ė and a modeling agency Ė Diamond Dolls.  Howís that going?

 

Trina:  Itís going pretty good.  We havenít actually started any fundraising yet. 

 

Chronicmagazine.com:  Are the fundraisers for the non-profit piece geared toward teenage girls?

 

Trina:   Yeah.  Teenage girls to young adults.

 

Chronicmagazine.com:  Are you still shopping your pilot around for the sitcom Friends Like These?

 

Trina:  Yeah.  Weíre hoping to have that out by next year so Iím still working on that.  Iím [starring] in it.  I enjoyed the challenge of playing someone else.  Iím definitely looking forward to doing the whole television scene. 

 

Chronicmagazine.com:  Are you working on a clothing line?

 

Trina:  Yeah.  I have a clothing line called Denim and Diamonds.  I want to make sure the jeans fit all the women that are bootylicious. 

 

Chronicmagazine.com:  How long do you see yourself rapping?

 

Trina:  I donít know.  Iím just going to keep doing until I feel like I want to stop.  Right now, I feel like I can put out another great album.  You do need downtime, but work is great.  Life is good.  Iím blessed.  Iíll keep doing music until I just canít do it anymore. 

 

Chronicmagazine.com:  Is it hard to juggle music and your business ventures?

 

Trina:  Not really.  I have people who are helping me because you canít do everything yourself.  When you become an entrepreneur, you have to have other people.

 

Chronicmagazine.com:  Whatís the most valuable lesson youíve learned so far?

 

Trina:  Stay focused.  You have to make sure your business is straight -  all your paperwork. 

 

Chronicmagazine.com:  Any last words?   

 

Trina:  Go get the Glamorest Life.  Itís in stores now.  The album is crazy.  Iím excited about it.  I worked really hard to put it together.  Thank you to all my fans that have the album.  If you donít, go get it.  To my fans, I love you all so much.  Continue to keep following me.  Thatís a true blessing.
