Calvin Terrell of Sister2Sister magazine caught up with Trina for a Q&A and asked her about getting painted for a photoshoot, why she won’t pose nude, her booty, the new album ‘Glamorous Life’, the controversial song ‘Leaving You (Big Ol’ D)’, and her outspokenness. On the latter subject, she says, “I’ve always been very outspoken because I believe in reality. I don’t believe things that I hear and I don’t like to believe in what you see printed in a magazine, on TV or on the radio. I like to know what is real and what is not real. When you live in a world and you don’t believe in reality, you are like really psyching yourself out for anything.” The excerpt at s2smagazine.com has since been removed.
