“Paparazzi Princesses is like two teenage girls who have celebrity fathers and we’re basically telling people we’re still kids,” Reginae told the DJs at Power 105.1.
Reginae, the daughter of rapper Lil Wayne, and Bria, Birdman’s daughter, pulled from their own life experiences for the teen novel which they wrote to encourages young people to read.
“It’s a lot of kids who don’t read nowadays. We just tried to make something fun for kids to read and they can also learn a lesson that it’s not all roses and daisies being a celebrity kid,” Reginae said.
Bria cosigned that she and her godsister have to consider things that non-celebrity teens don’t.
“We can’t just post anything on Instagram or Twitter. We just can’t say anything or just send other people pictures of us because they might leak to sites,” she said.
While there’s some normalcy to their lives, like doing chores, they also have to worry about what bloggers are writing about them and about fake people who want to befriend them for the wrong reasons.
Though they admit they want fame, Reginae and Bria said they’re not really interested in professions that will thrust them into the spotlight.
“I want to be an OBGYN,” said Reginae. Bria wants to be a vet.
In the meantime, the girls plan to continue writing a series of books, and Reginae is also working on a music career with former OMG Girlz band mate Lourdes “LoLo” Rodriduez and will be back on reality TV in her mom’s new show, “Toya & Memphitz: Crazy In Love.”
As for music, Reginae said she’s a Rihanna fan, and of course, she listens to Lil Wayne.
“He does go overboard sometimes,” she said about her dad’s lyrics. “That’s his job.”
