Ray J explained his “LOL” response to an inspirational message Kim Kardashian recently posted to Twitter. Listen.
Kim, who arguably owes her celebrity status and success to Ray J, tweeted, ”Keep your life in a positive perspective. We are not defined by our pasts.”
Ray J’s three-letter response resonated through the social media site, causing his name to become a Twitter trending topic, but he said he was not throwing shade at Kim.
“I just felt like it was real what was said. I kinda laughed about it, just because it was 100. You know how you see some things, and it’s 100 … retweet,” Ray J told the DJs at Power 106 radio in Los Angeles.
Kim, now a reality star, actress and entrepreneur, was introduced to the masses via a leaked sex tape featuring her and crooner Ray, and she acknowledged that footage catapulted her to stardom.
“That’s pretty much how I was introduced to the world,” Kim told Oprah Winfrey in June.
Kim has clearly moved on, and that includes new relationships. Her most recent is with rapper Kanye West, and Ray J had nothing negative to say about the twosome.
“I wish ‘em the best. Life is a rollercoaster ride, so you never know what’s going to happen. But I wish them the best, and much respect to both of them,” he said. “They doing a great thing. I wish ‘em the best.”
Although Ray J’s been pretty quiet since the death of family friend Whitney Houston in February, he assured that he’s back now.
“I’ve been under a rock for a minute keeping my mind right, but I’m back on the scene,” he said.
Ray J also talks about his new music. Listen.
