Karrueche Tran on Being The Other Woman in Chris Brown and Rihanna Drama: “It Was Very Hard”
This is Karrueche Tran’s first magazine cover ever. Yeah, Chris Brown’s ex is basically naked, but maybe that’s appropriate, since she’s trying to show the world a piece of her true self. Then again, in her interview, she talks about her new clothing line, The-Kill, so maybe it would’ve been better to showcase those clothes.
Instead, most of her RollingOut.com interview is about how she gained fame as the girl who was dating Chris Brown while he wasn't quite done loving his ex, Rihanna. “I first realized there was a change [when] more people would talk about me in blogs and such,” she told the magazine. “And the paparazzi would take pictures and follow me when I wasn’t around Chris. I was like ‘Chris is not here, why are you following me?’ But I was constantly seeing myself on blogs and websites. It was kind of weird.”
It was also "very hard," she said, to deal with the many opinions about her. “The most challenging part about the attention was the negativity and the misconception from some people. People only see you in blogs and they think they know everything about your life. There are things that go public and everything that comes out is not the truth.”
She said she wants to be remembered as "someone who remained positive through such a negative situation." She's also someone turning that situation to her advantage, by getting magazine covers like this and promoting a new brand.
