Singer, actress and media personality Christina Milian has a lot on her plate. She is in the studio working on her YMCMB debut, serving as the social media correspondent for The Voice, recently shot a commercial for Viva Diva Wines (she has an equity stake of ownership in the company), and of course she is a mother. However, the 31-year Jersey City-bred cleared her busy scheduled for a fashion shoot with Rolling Out. She also sat down with journalist Terry Shropshire for an interview. For this issue, Jas Prince’s girlfriend was styled by celebrity stylist Olori Swank and shot by famed photographer DeWayne Rogers. In the photos, Milian posed in a grey dress and silver floor length gown. Below are some highlights:
On being the social media correspondent for The Voice:
“I have a lot of fun doing what I do. At the end of the day, l love to talk, I love music, I love watching artists really striving and really reaching their dreams. And being a part of that is really special to me. For me, I get to do all the behind-the-scene interviews and give the fans all the exclusive content you can’t find anywhere. It’s a lot of fun. I love the coaches. We have an awesome set and I feel very fortunate that my Twitter account and my Instagram and anything online just continues to grow constantly because of the show,” she says.
On her forthcoming LP:
“I have a good team around me. With this album, I have Young Money and this is great because they are the first team of people that understood that I needed a family, that I don’t feel like I’m out here on my own. There’s a difference with being with a label and being out on your own, like, ‘hey, I run this and no one else is with me.’ Let’s be real; there’s nothing better than having a family to back you up. And that’s how Young Money is. And we have the best of the best. We have Drake, we have Nicki, we have Tigga. We have so many people on that label so that when the music comes, it can only make it better,” says Milian.
On how she reacted when she found out that she was with child:
“I wasn’t scared. I was excited when I found out I was pregnant. Of course, when you find out that first time, you’re like ‘Oh my God! My life is changing. From here on out my life has changed.’ And then you realize that miracle that is inside of you and what’s happening. Even the ups and downs outside my pregnancy, I enjoyed each and every moment of my pregnancy. And the second that I had her, I knew that it was meant to be. Like I never questioned God and I knew that everything was happening for a reason. Now if you had asked me before I was pregnant and before I was married to The-Dream, I thought that I would never have a baby at this time in my life. But everything fell into place,” she says.
