WADOO!!Karrueche talks staying single, ruthless side chicks & what it would take to date her!
Elle magazine’s Julie Schott and Danielle Prescod had a light-hearted interview with Karrueche Tran where they asked her not-so serious questions like who slides in her DMs, what does she look for in a man, what life is like post break-up from Chris Brown. Read Below…
Danielle: Does living such a public life ever bother you? Do you ever want to turn it off?
Karrueche: Yeah, because I never have privacy. I walk out the house and there’s paparazzi. There’s certain things I can’t do: if I wanted to date, or go on a date. It’s like I have to worry about people taking pictures and it’s crazy. Even yesterday, when I was in Miami, I took a picture with some soccer player and now it’s everywhere on the Internet that we’re dating! It’s “Her New Man.”
Danielle: Do you ever want to say, “Hey, that’s not true; leave me alone!”
Karrueche: Sometimes I’m like, “That’s false. I’m single.” Why am I even feeding into it if I know people make up shit all the time? Crazy stuff. Sometimes I just pick and choose my battles.
Julie: What would be your ideal next relationship?
Karrueche: I don’t know because I haven’t been single in so long. I’m very traditional. I want to have kids. I want to be not a stay-at-home mom, but to be able to take care of my kids and have a family and cook. A white picket fence and a dog. Which is not realistic nowadays, but I don’t know. Right now, my head is just crazy with any kind of relationship. I don’t think I can handle it. Just having gone through what I’ve gone through. It’s trust issues, and then to meet someone new and open up to them. I don’t know if you really want to date me or have sex with me. Know what I mean? I’m just gonna be myself and be single.
Danielle: How would someone go about dating you?
Karrueche: There have been guys who would DM me, or would tell a friend. Sometimes, I’ll entertain a text, but it’s nothing serious.
Julie: I can totally see somebody like Drake shady in your DMs.
Karrueche: No, he never DMs me.
Danielle: No one’s that shady. I’m sorry, that would be so foolish in a DM. Someone could screenshot that and quietly whisper it to US Weekly or something. You have to be real careful.
Karrueche: That’s why these boys suck. Because even this weekend while I was in Miami, I saw somebody who has a girlfriend and they’re in love on Instagram, but then you know he’s creeping. And they’re like the hottest couple ever, so in love with each other. You just can’t escape it. All these boys suck. That’s why you gotta date the uglier guy or the fat one.
Danielle: Not that fat, but dad bod.
Julie: And then do you have them get in shape or…?
Karrueche: Let me cook for you some more!
Danielle: Never let them get hot. You let them wear their jeans a little ill-fitting. He looks a little bit crazy and you look amazing.
Julie: People would be like, “Why are they together?” Let me tell you, we have a plan.
Danielle: It’s so hard to meet new people.
Karrueche: It’s so hard. Where do you start? Do I go older? Do I go younger? I don’t know if I want to date an athlete or a celebrity because then it’s a whole new headache dealing with that lifestyle. It’s not fun at all.
Danielle: You should date a studio executive.
Karrueche: Someone low-key.
Julie: Like Solange’s husband.
Julie: Okay, what’s your ideal man? Physically and personality-wise.
Karrueche: Well, physically of course, I have to be attracted. And I’m not attracted to one type of guy. Sometimes I’ll find a random guy attractive, or I don’t know, his man-bun.
Julie: Do you have a height restriction?
Karrueche: Yes. He has to be taller than me because I don’t think short people are cute. I need some height.
Danielle: You need to feel protected.
Karrueche: And somebody who is more mature. So maybe somebody older because you know how they say women mature faster? Somebody who has a great relationship with their mother.
Julie: So important.
Karrueche: Goes to church or believes in something! Has some sort of faith, you know? Someone who is low-key and has his own thing going on. I go off vibes and I’m very chill, so if I can connect with somebody without the clutter and craziness, that’s good.
Julie: I think you need a Jonas. Do you follow @JoeJonas on Instagram?
Karrueche: No, but I’ve seen his posts before.
Danielle: He did that “Single Ladies” thing on SNL. It was hilarious. I’m like, “Oh, I’m into you, Joe Jonas.” Nick is also small, but he’s jacked.
Julie: He’s the one that’s a bit more serious. Whenever I hear the one who’s on Hot 97, I’m like, “What?” I don’t get it.
Karrueche: That’s Nick. He’s a little more urban.
Julie: How does it feel when other women throw themselves at your man?
Karrueche: It is very difficult. It’s not fun. It’s hard to trust. It’s hard dating another attractive person because it’s competition. You have to worry about everything. And I tell you, these girls do not care! They are ruthless.
Danielle: How do you manage your own self-confidence in situations like that?
Karrueche: It’s hard especially being so much in the public eye. I look at myself, I compare myself to other people, but then I make myself humble. You know what? God created you this way. You’re you. I think everyone should be their own individualized person. Everyone’s just trying to be like somebody else. These little girls that see the Kylie Jenners or whoever they aspire to be as girls. Which is awesome, they’re beautiful girls, but a lot of people lose themselves.
