Getting over an ex is hard enough without being reminded of your relationship every time you turn on the radio. Unfortunately, that's what Christina Milian is dealing with. The singer and reality star opened up to Rolling Out about what it's like to listen to the music she made while she was dating Lil Wayne, and we have to say, she's handling it better than we would have.
"Well, I love the songs. They all describe moments, [and] every time I listen to them, I think of something that happened in that moment, and what inspired those songs," she says. "The four songs that I wrote and are on the EP were at the time about my relationship with Wayne. I was far more descriptive in my writing this time around. It was a really fun and inspirational time. Everything inspires me, but when it comes to chemistry and when it comes to the ups and downs of relationships, that’s what’s real for people. People want to feel something."
The singer and mom also talks about coming into her own as a Boss Lady by launching her clothing line, We Are Pop Culture. "I just got tired of waiting for things to happen through other people, when so many other people are taking chances on following their dreams," she says. "The new idea for me now is creativity. I like to express myself. Half of the ideas I am doing and pursuing now are ideas I have had from a long time ago. Or just in the moment, I have come up with the idea, and I’ve literally just broken it down how it can happen, and where it can happen."
