Cassie’s Spread In Complex

04Aug08

Here are the rest of the pics from Cassie’s cover story for Complex magazine:

Here’s what she had to say about her “talent” and upcoming album:

“Based on my past and how my last album came out, I really need to come back much much stronger, I wanted to have more personality. I really want to tell a story when I’m doing a song. Vocally, either you like my voice or you don’t. I’m not trying to blow like Mariah, back when she was doing that.”

She addressed the rumors about her “fu**ing for tracks”:

“‘She’s fu***** for checks. I don’t f*** for checks–I’d rather live on the street.”

Personally, I think that rumor is ridiculous. People seem to think because she is not the best at what she does vocally, she must be having sex to stay in the studio. SMH, kill it people! About “Official Girl” being about Diddy, and using the relationship rumors as a marketing ploy:

“Nope. It wasn’t planned. It was just a song I really loved that I heard. Nobody will ever know who “Official Girl” is about. They think it’s about certain people but it’s not. Anything that happens in my personal life is personal. I never actually put anything out there. Nobody’s really known who I’ve dated.”

About dealing with her ethnicity while growing up:

“What’s funny about it is, when I was growing up, I wasn’t confused. I knew exactly what I was. My dad’s Filipino, my mom is Mexican, West Indian and black–I’m a little melting pot. In school, you were either black or white. Being Asian really wasn’t anything until I got to high school and was modeling all the time, and it was important because it intrigued people. Black people definitely didn’t claim me before. They were like, ‘Light skinned over there, she’s just not for us.’ It’s all perception. The other day, I was at the drugstore and this girl in line was like, ‘She’s next, the white girl.’ I’m not white. I’m not even close.”

The pictures as usual, are fab.

  1. Very cute. She should maybe stick to modeling and let the singers sing. She takes great pictures. As far as that whole I’m not f*ckin’ for tracks thing, don’t forget how Diddy and her spent Mother’s Day all boo’d up.
