Mila J. Will Sing You A Song If You Purchase Her A Chinchilla Thong. Now That’s The Type Of Woman A Man Can Get Caught Up In
Mila J. changes her mind more than a Gemini under duress, which is why her Split Personality debut might be the most appropriately titled LP since Michael Jacksonâ€™s Dangerous. Sometimes the 23-year-old L.A. nativeâ€”plucked by Chris Stokes (Omarion, Marques Houston, B2K) from girl quartet Dameâ€”wants to sing, other times she wants to rap. One minute sheâ€™s talking about rockinâ€™ a chinchilla thong, the next she says she doesnâ€™t even own one. Ask the black, Asian and Indian blend if she loves cute bras and sheâ€™ll emphatically answer yes. Tomorrow, sheâ€™ll turn hippie chick, proclaiming that boobs should never have barricades. Not that weâ€™re mad at that last contradiction. Weâ€™re just saying. . . .
KING Your bio says you began rapping when you were 4. Was that a typo?
MILA J. Actually, I started rapping and singing when I was 4. When I was younger, my favorite movie was Krush Groove, so that put rapping in my spirit, and my father sang, so I was just trying to do everything back then.
Your look is way more R&B than hip-hop.
I always thought it was important that the rap side of me get shown too, though, because that was something that would set me apart from a lot of females out there.
Youâ€™re right. Not many girls can go from blowing a softhearted ballad to spitting about a chinchilla thong. That, more than Krush Groove, is the kind of thing that gets us open.
For every man that listens to that song, thatâ€™s the only thing they hear. The song is called â€œIâ€™m Miâ€™,â€ but even one of our label guys at Universal was telling me for a month that his favorite song was â€œChinchilla Thongâ€ [laughs].
Which begs the obvious question: Do you really wear a chinchilla thong?
No, I donâ€™t have one. I definitely want one, though. I gotta get one made.
