A new Love & Hip Hop premieres tonight on Vh1, and its going to be on and popping really quickly! You might have heard there's a lot of drama between Tahiry and her ex Joe Budden. And while we won't spoil it for you, just know you need to be prepared.
We sat down with the beautiful star of Love & Hip Hop: New York for an in-depth interview ... and what we found out is that Tahiry doesn't give a Phuck!
Check it out below.
GlobalGrind: When you finally saw the episode, what did you think about your performance on the show?
Tahiry: I’ve been letting it all sink in. I was me. Coming into this, there are cameras around and my biggest fear was not to confuse my fans, because you are aware of these cameras at first. So that was the very beginning and I was afraid not to be myself because the cameras were all the way on me ... but I was me. I was full of emotion, passionate, and mad at Joe and I was really expressive.
A couple of weeks ago you had a little blow up on Twitter when Joe dropped his mixtape. You guys seem pretty cool now. Are you?
Not at all. We’re not cool. It’s just something that happened and I was just thinking about that now after the fucking crazy night I had last night that was pretty amazing. It’s just really weird when it comes to Joey and I. We’re not friends. I don’t want to be his friend, I don’t. At some point enough is enough.
He tries me. The minute I walk in somewhere and he’s there and I am not his friend and he knows that, it’s like he won’t stop until he gets a reaction from me whether it’s a ‘hello,' a ‘goodbye,' a ‘fuck you,’ it doesn’t matter. Last night, if you watch us really closely when I’m not talking to him, we were in front of people. I conducted myself how I’m supposed to while watching that first episode. I turned around and smiled and we had things to say to each other, but I’m not happy. I’m not a happy camper when it comes to Joe. But I had a job to do and that was to conduct myself and watch the first episode and act like adults.
What about the song pissed you off? The song is a good song.
What song are you fucking talking about? Was it the same song that I heard?
"Off to the Races."
Yeah, that’s the one he has on his mixtape where he keeps talking more shit.
Well, why do you think he’s still rapping about you?
Either he needs my help or he’s not over it.
On to you and this show. Are you prepared for what’s about to happen? You’re already famous, but you’re about to be famous famous for real because you’re going to be on television every week. Are you prepared for that?
No. I’m not thinking that far. I take everything a day at a time. I like to keep it that way because I’m always really nervous and everything is all new to me even if I’ve been in the industry for the last four years. It’s another stepping stone and I take it a day at a time. It’s on Monday nights and it’s whatever.
How are you going to deal with the haters?
I’m not going to lie, I’m going to be honest and I do read some things that affect me, I’m human and it comes with the territory at this point. I’ve been doing this for four years now and it is what it is. I put myself out there and it just comes with it. It’s just love and hate and vice versa, so I just don’t read it. At this point, my skin is pretty thick.
What is the craziest thing a dude has ever said about your butt? Your booty is crazy. We already know that. What is the craziest way they’ve come at you or said about your body?
Everything is just funny to me. To me, people just talk about my butt. I'm like it’s just ass, what’s the big deal? Nothing surprises me or is crazy to me anymore. Everything is just corny. Like, one guy said ‘I wish I could eat your underwear.’
Joe came to the job on the show and what was that like when he popped up at your job?
I was like, "What the fuck do you want?" Of course he would come to my job because I can't fucking run out the bar. A few times I fucking walked to the back and said you know what, send me home, but I’m not giving that man that much power.
I spoke to Raqi last night and she still has a bunch of ill feelings towards you.
I don’t give a fuck what Raqi got towards me. How about that? I’m always really cool, calm and collected. I’m always chilling. I have no issues with anybody until you got an issue. So my feelings about Raqi - I don’t want you as a part of my team, my life, my friendship, little ogre. Like, you’re not my kind of chick. You can’t be mad at an adult looking at another adult saying you’re not my kind of chick. Stay in your lane. I don’t give a fuck what Raqi thinks. And storyline? No, you just have to tune in Mondays at 8 on Vh1.
