On splitting time between Atlanta, Miami and New York: This is where I came up here in Atlanta. That’s how I got on Flavor of Love, that’s how I got on Charm School. The door is always open for me in Atlanta and it will always be my home. Miami – I love the beaches, but I absolutely love King of Diamonds. LA is a city of opportunity.

On photo shoots: When I prepare for a photo shoot, I get everything done – hair did, nails done, everything did like Drake said. On a recent shoot I did, I was with a bunch of bums. Toes ain’t done, looked like they been chewed up. People want to be in the game, but not do the work to stay in the game.

On reports about dating Lil Scrappy: Honestly, I never did any interviews about that. I try to be private when it comes to relationships and that situation was so touchy that I didn’t want to talk about it. That’s my baby, I love him to death and he’ll always be. He’s one of my best friends. What we have can’t nobody break that up. He’s a great friend and I just want to kind of leave it at that.

On other relationship rumors: The whole thing with Andre 3000 . . . they said I was dating him and I never even met that dude. They said I was messing around with Rick Ross and no, I’m just cool with him. They just put me with people. That’s just the way the industry is.

On current relationship status: I’m seeing someone.

On turn-ons: I love to travel. I’m a Blockbuster girl. I will sit at home with my dude and watch Blockbuster. I love a man who can cook. If you can cook, oh my God, you’re winning. I like tall men, I do. I don’t like midgets. I feel protected with a tall man. If you’re shorter than me, no, we’re not doing this.

On turn-offs: Calling me Buckeey, asking me about Flavor of Love all day, staring at me like I’m a circus clown, showing me off to your friends and not getting to know me. I get bored easy. I don’t want anyone who’s all over me, calling me constantly. I want someone who has their own direction, their own independence. If you need me, I’ll be there and if I need you, you’ll be there. I don’t look for looks. I’ve been with a White guy, Black guy, Chinese guy. I don’t give a damn. As long as I’m happy.
