Although most of us would think Joe Budden wants that old thing back ex-girlfriend and bodacious model Tahiry he says he just wants closure. He dishes on just that during his recent interview with Rolling Out. He also talks joining the new cast of “Love And Hip Hop: New York” and how being on reality television has impacted his personal and professional life.
On his relationship with ex-girlfriend Tahiry:
“Closure would be nice,” Joe says of the ongoing push-pull with Tahiry. “But that’s a luxury at this point between her and I. Would I prefer it? Yes. Will it ever be? Who the f–k knows?”
On being labeled a ladies man:
“As much as it is communicated, I don’t view myself that way. It’s almost a joke when I hear it. To me, it’s as simple as, I’m attracted to women that a lot of other people seem to be attracted to as well. They’re all beautiful and amazing women — physically, at least. It doesn’t set me apart. But I’m very transparent with them. Maybe most other people are not. Maybe I live in a bubble, in that respect. But that pretty much is always what it is.”
Does he have second thoughts about doing reality television?:
“I didn’t really see a reason to be opposed to the show It was never really something I was ever opposed to. This was just another outlet for people to get a better understanding of who I am as an individual. And to see some of the struggles that I went through. If it could help at least one person out there, it was all worth it. If new fans are attracted that’s great. If older fans can get a better understand or another perspective on Joe Budden, then I welcome that, too. All things are welcome.
On why he decided to join the cast of Love & Hip Hop New York:
“You wanna make the most out of life. Life is short. You wanna do as much as you can for as many people as you can. That’s just the person I’ve grown into. It wasn’t always the case. … But today, you evolve. Any new experience, opportunity or door that God puts in front of me to walk through, I’m gonna trust him and walk through [it.]”
