Pilar Sanders Talks About ‘Single Ladies,’ ‘Football Wives,” Her Perfume Line & Charities With Don Bleek

Pilar Sanders is no stranger to the spotlight. She’s a mother, wife, entrepreneur, philanthropist, actress, model, reality star and perfumisa. Pilar and her husband Deion Sanders had their own reality show titled, Deion & Pilar: Prime Time Love, she was a cast member on VH1’s Football Wives and is featured in a few episodes of Single Ladies. She’s the definition of a female hustla. She has her own line of perfume and working on developing a R&B artist. With all this success, Sanders still finds time to balance her career and give back to her community; with her charities. I caught up with Pilar Sanders for an exclusive interview. Pilar talked about her charities, being featured in VH1’Single Ladies, Football Wives, her perfume line and much more.

How did you make a transition from being a mother and wife to becoming a major reality star and a successful model and actress?

I modeled and acted before I was married and decided that after my babies were able to walk, talk, go to school and cook, that I would come back to doing the work I love. Being a Wife, Mother and Actress is a part of who I am; so the transition was very seamless and of course in reality, it’s simple because it’s me and my life basically what I do all of the time. It’s me ‘Unplugged” LOL

How do you deal with being a mother, wife, model, actress, and reality star; Is it hard to balance all of those things?

Balancing life in general is challenge. With so many hats to wear as a women ‘dealing’ is not an option! “Making it happen” is what it is if I want to accomplish anything.

DON BLEEK EXCLUSIVE: Lil Kim Signs To Universal Music Group

Platinum-selling femcee Lil Kim recently inked a deal with Universal Music Group. As of posting, it isn’t clear what specific imprint under the label she has joined.  I reached out to a rep from the label but was not able to get through because of bad phone signal. As soon as I get back to NY, I will stop by the office to speak to a rep. In the meantime, you can visit Universal Music Group website and see that Lil Kim was added as an artist to the label.

What’s Really Beef: Jay-Z & Kanye West Not Seeing Eye-To-Eye & Feuding Over ‘Watch The Throne’

According to an article published in the NY Post/Page Six music mogul Jay-Z and rapper Kanye West aren’t seeing eye-to-eye and are feuding over their upcoming tour. Below is how NY Post is reporting the story:

A battle royal has broken out behind the scenes of Jay-Z and Kanye West‘s new album, “Watch the Throne.”

Sources say the rappers — who call themselves The Throne and are releasing their expected blockbuster collaboration Aug. 8 on iTunes and four days later everywhere else — are barely speaking to each other as they iron out the details of their upcoming tour.

Live Nation’s presale event on Thursday was delayed, but tickets for the tour are slated to go on sale today, with shows at the IZOD Center Sept. 27 and 28.

The sources say West wants flashy concerts with “next-level production,” which would cost more than $400,000 per show. Jay-Z is said to be meticulous about costs and already has a larger, long-term advance from Live Nation that he has to pay back.

“Jay-Z can’t deal with Kanye,” an insider told Page Six. “Jay is a stone-cold businessman. He wants to recoup all of his money from Live Nation. But Kanye wants to upstage rock stars with a blowout show. He doesn’t care about costs. He has a lot less to gain from the shows.”

West is expected to agree to the conditions of the tour next week, but the business brouhaha between the powerhouse artists might have affected their backstage relationship.

Industry insiders were shocked to see West and Jay-Z perform separately with Young Jeezy last Monday night at the Highline Ballroom. “We were expecting them to come out together to perform a track from the album,” a source said. “They didn’t even go out together after the show.”

“Jay-Z is fed up with West’s antics,” another source said. “He doesn’t even want to be around him.” However, the two are expected to perform together at a listening party tonight at The Rose Planetarium in Central Park, according to The Post’s Dan Aquilante. A Live Nation rep said, “No comment.” The rappers’ reps didn’t get back to us.

Song Of The Year: Stevie Wonder Featured On Drake’s ‘Take Care’

Over this past weekend, the 2nd Annual OVO Fest in Toronto took place. Drake brought out Rick Ross, J.Cole, Nas and Stevie Wonder. The most surprising moment was when Drizzy told RapCity host T-Rexxx after the event: Stevie Wonder is on Take Care.

Stevie Wonder is a very close friend of mine. I’m honored to call him a friend, someone who embraced me very early in this music business. This is an exclusive right here, because it’s MuchMusic, and we’re Canadian: Stevie Wonder is actually on Take Care. He helped me out with a lot of the music, just came and sat with me, listened to my music, told me where I could add a couple things to make it more sonically appealing, and not only that but we actually are writing together, which is an incredible experience. So I hit him, asked him to come by, and with no hesitation he hit me back like “I will be there.” Not only that, but he was supposed to do two songs and he did like six. It was incredible.”

Take Care is scheduled to hit stores October 24.
