On how he attained his weight loss –

I lost about 20 pounds. Just keep having sex three hours at a time.

On everyone hating Milian’s new blonde hair –

I don’t get it! 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. When we go out the country they go crazy [for her]. I get back here, I read a blog— it makes no sense…That shit look good to me.

On what he did when he saw Johnta Austin, Usher and Jermaine Dupri publicly dissing Milian’s new look –

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, 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. I really didn’t get it. That’s like me doing that. 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.  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.  (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.

On whether Milian’s motives should be questioned –

To clear this up, “Oh, she fuckin’ for tracks” and this shit, I be like these muthafuckas must be stupid.  It’s a recession ain’t nobody got to fuck for tracks. We basically giving them away. There’s a clearance!  When I started to really want to build my label, 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.

On knowing about Milian’s romantic history (with Nick Cannon and producer Dre) –

I’m a tell you something crazy. How much I work and how real I am, ’cause the game is so fickle. I was getting ready to do something recently on some business stuff and I was like “You want to come by this particular thing” It was something in Utah. It was Sundance. I was like, “You want to come up here? Mariah is having this party,” I told this to Christina. She was like “Uh, no!” I’m so out the loop on that shit, man, I really don’t give a fuck! Like that shit— I really don’t give a fuck about that shit.
