Trey Songz is a bona fide sex symbol and with songs like "I Invented Sex," "In the Middle" and "Neighbors Known My Name," it's no wonder the ladies go cray-cray for Trey. In a recent interview with MadameNoire.com, the 29-year-old singer opened up about love and how his celebrity and image have affected his dating life.
"It does a little bit," Songz said about how his status as a sex symbol affects his interactions with the ladies. "First of all, sometimes I just wanna kick it. I wanna chill out. If I'm dealing with somebody, they wanna have sex talking about how I do this, that and the other. They're like, 'It's a cut right here. What's up?' That's kind of crazy. Because I am so sexually viewed, when I'm actually interested in somebody, that's the last thing on my mind. When I feel somebody for the person that they are, I love their conversation and I love being around them and I ain't really tripping off of sex. Sex is something that for me, when you're viewed as a sex symbol or however you want to put it, you know it's an object. It's whatever. It doesn't hold as much value — to me. When I fall in love and making love, I'm all down for that. It does get a little tricky because you don't know what people's motives are. But it's cool because I put myself in that position."
Songz also talked about his current relationship status and whether or not he's searching for love.
"I got somebody that I care about, but we're not at that place. We ain't even dealing with each other like that. For me, I'm focused on becoming a legend and making sure musically, I handle mine," he said. "Outside of that, I'm not looking for love, but I do want it one day. I want somebody to fall in love with, have kids with, all of that. But I don't wanna rush that. I don't wanna get to a place where I rush it and that's not it. I want to be able to have kids and watch them grow up and see them say their first words."
