We’re gonna be really honest right now: we don’t like Christina Milian’s new peroxide-blond hair color. But her boyfriend (and boss), producer–singer–label head The Dream, disagrees in a big way. In fact, he doesn’t really understand what the big fuss is.
"I don’t get it!" he told Concrete Loop. "Me and her had this conversation, like what the hell are they looking at? ‘Like, maybe it’s something wrong with they computer screen and maybe Rasputia comes up every time they looking at you, cause I don’t know, I have no idea. Like, I think something is wrong…That s@!t looks good to me."
And all those rumors about Christina, umm, getting down for free music? "To clear this up, ‘Oh, she f#@kin’ for tracks’ and this s@!t, I be like, ‘these muthaf%^kas must be stupid," Dream said. "It’s a recession ain’t nobody got to f!*k for tracks. We basically giving them away. There’s a clearance!"
The Dream, or Terius Youngdell Nash as his momma calls him, hand-picked Christina when he set out to start his label, Radio Killa Records. "I went looking for her. I was like, where is she at? I need that person over here. She’s talented and she’s a good person. I met a lot of people. That’s what I told Johntá. We know a lot of people that ain’t good people. You don’t do that to good people."
Speaking of producer Johntá Austin, Dream was pissed when he saw the much-circulated video of Johntá, Usher and Jermaine Dupri weighing in on his boo’s new look.
Here’s the video in case you haven’t seen it:
"I called all of them. First person I called was Johntá Austin…He ain’t know she was over here with Radio Killa like that," said The Dream. "But I’m like ‘in any event why are y’all, Grammy winning, critically-acclaimed songwriters, gentleman— It doesn’t make any sense to do that.’ I didn’t get it."
"That’s like me doing that," he continued. "Maybe I just have an ego that’s going to make me come down off my horse to talk about you. It’s not going to happen. Even in the cross of saying anything back, everybody calling ‘Hey man, what you going to—’ Man, I ain’t saying nothing. I’m me. I’ll say everything I want to say on the left side of Billboard charts."
Then, The Dream had some special words for Johntá, who’s also a popular songwriter with Mariah Carey’s "Don’t Forget About Us" to his credit.
"Most of my concern with Johntá is: First off, I know you were just goofing off and that you don’t believe that ’cause if you seen her, you would try to holla at her," Dream said. "(Usher) called me and told me he was sorry and or whatever. But she on Radio Killa. She feel a certain way about it, then I’m good on you. We can’t even work."
