What do Lil Wayne and Paris Hilton have in common? Well, besides both serving stints behind bars, Hilton had the opportunity to chop it up with Weezy in the new issue of Interview magazine.
The two stars recently had a conversation over the phone about Twitter, their goals for 2011 and of course, their experiences in jail. Both Hilton and Wayne had to spend some time in solitary confinement. Weezy F. Baby commented on the predicament: “For me it was okay, because it just meant that I was alone with my thoughts,” he said. “There were times when it was pretty tough to be by yourself, and to have no television, no sort of nothing. That was kind of tough. But I didn’t have to be in there long. It was just a month. I was okay. I did fine.”
Asked how it feels to be free, Birdman, Jr. said “Words cannot explain. “You’re definitely more in tune to what you’re doing. You’re definitely more humble. I think that most people who come out of that situation just want to make the most of life afterwards. Honestly it was just one big humbling experience.’
The YMCMB leader also said he’s on a “Twitter strike’—meaning he’s taking a break from writing on the social networking site—after someone hacked into his account.
When questioned by moderator, Dimitri Ehrlich, what his objective is for this year, Wayne said: I want to bank a cool $50 million at least. At the end of this year, I want to be able to say that I banked $50 million. Not generated $50 million, but actually banked $50 million.”
In addition to the Q&A between Paris Hilton and Lil Wayne, Interview magazine also has a story with Weezy’s personal tattoo artist, Dow Hokoana. In the feature, Hokoana says Wayne hired her to ink his body from his waist down to his knees. “His body suit, except for one primary area, is complete,” she said, referring to his pubic region.
“We’ll just see how long it takes him to decide yea or nay on that,” she added. “I know my boy, and I have a feeling it will happen, but I give it two years.”
