Check out a few excerpts from the interview after the jump and for the full interview head on over to TheJasmineBrand.Com!
CE: How’s your friendship with Scrappy now? Are you guys friends?
D: I haven’t seen him.
CE: You would think after having a relationship with someone for so long that you could finally be friends.
Diamond: That’s the same thing I said. It is what is it. I’m not looking to be his friend; I don’t want to be his friend. At some point we need to make amends. I’m to the point now, because I know at one point he was trying to reach out, and I was still angry from a lot of things that happened in the past. I think I’m to the point now where I could…
CE: Sit down and have that conversation?
Diamond: yes. There should be no reason why we can’t be in the same room without you having a good time and me having a good time. So now that I’m 24, I see that differently. I don’t think how I was thinking when I was 18 or 19. Hot headed and crazy.
CE: We heard that you might be on a reality show. We know that you can’t confirm but you were supposed to be on it before (Love & Hip Hop). Why’d you decide not to do it?
Diamond: I didn’t know what I was getting myself into. I don’t like to go into things blind. It’s weird. Because God is really dealing with me. I know that having faith, you have to step out sometimes and trust that, whatever you do, whatever decisions you make, whether it’s a bad one or not, he’ll turn around and make it into something positive. So now that I realize that. But at that point, I was a loose cannon. So anybody that would have came at my any kind of way, or if I won’t have reacted the way that I wanted to, I’m still an artist. So I didn’t want to do anything to temper my brand. Now I’m calmer, I think. I still have a temper but I think before I get mad. I think in a political way. As women we’re so emotional. But as man, they cannot get along with someone but still get this money together. So that was a combination of things and I didn’t really have the control to, have a lot of say so in my image.
CE: If you wanted to do it now, what would be your motivation?
Diamond: I think that its time for other woman that are struggling to be independent in a man’s world, no matter if it’s in music, fashion, a 9-5 corporate job, I think it’s important for them to see the challenges I face. And especially me overcoming those challenges and those I haven’t overcome. It’s important for them to see my family. Some of the family members that may be dysfunctional. If it’s in a light to where it’s truthful and innocent because that’s what it is, I know that things will have to be twisted, I’m clue with that. But I’m to the point now where I know that I have a brand and it’s certain things that have to be protected. And if they’re not protected, I’m not doing it period. But if it is protected, it is something that I might consider doing it. I keep hearing I should do it, so maybe I should think about it for a minute.
