Vancouver interviewer and musician Nardwuar’s interviews have amassed millions of YouTube views off the strength of their surprisingly thorough research and quirky interactions. Miami native Trina was the latest to get the “Human Serviette” treatment, and she sounded off on everything from Miami’s cuisine and bass music culture to one of her least favorite pre-Rap jobs.
“I did work at UPS, and I worked at AT&T, which was even worse,” Trina told Nardwuar. “I hated that job. I hated working for AT&T. I hated calling people’s phone and trying to get them to try and switch over to AT&T.”
Coincidentally, Trina says she’s now on the other end of that experience and isn’t particularly thrilled with being solicited to by her phone carrier. Aside from her phone issues, Trina also touched on her sensual image, which has been showcased in her videos and magazine spreads for the likes of King and VIBE. She gave credit to a pioneering artist with similar views on women taking control of their image.
“I love Millie Jackson, and I think she’s very b***hy,” Trina said. “She’s amazing. A lot of ladies want to be really expressive or be sensual and they don’t know how or hide behind it. I think she was one that just spoke it out. If you’re sexy and you’re b***hy, you love that.”
