The-Dream Defends His Girl Christina Milian

Interview: Brian “B.Dot” Miller

Figuratively speaking, Terius Nash has the stuff that dreams are made of. That’s because for nearly 10 years, the singer/songwriter/producer known as The-Dream has become a musical triple threat. And on the cusp of his sophomore release Love vs. Money, the Georgia native chopped it up with RapRadar about his new album, photographs, and how he and his main squeeze are laughing all the way to the bank.

A lot of folks have called your debut album, Love/Hate a classic.
Dream: I made two modern day classics.

Oh, really? So what’s the overall theme this time around?
Well, Love/Hate was the first album and it was just about where I was coming from. How I just got a certain type of recognition. And I knew there would be a certain kind of hate I was going to receive for being in that particular position because I seen it happen to others. This one, Love vs. Money is about what I got now. It’s about me and what I do it for. It’s a question I ask myself and a question I pose to everybody else. Do you do it for the love? Do you do relationships for the love? Is it about the money I have? When I do my job—writing songs, is it about love or is that about money? So that’s what it is. It’s exactly what the title says.

But in these trying times, shouldn’t people do things with money in mind?

Not really. I think love always brings us through. No matter how much money you got. You haven’t loved somebody in a time like this in order to receive stuff. It’s not just going to come to you based off “Ah I got money.” You can lose money you can never really lose love if you got it.

Speaking of which, you lost a lot of weight. How’d you do it?
I only loss about 20 pounds. Just keep having sex three hours at a time.

Uh, duly noted. Recently, your girlfriend Christina Milian has caught a lot of heat over the pictures she took at the Atlanta Hawks game.
Oh yeah, they hate her. [But] I love it. Cause evidently, we controlling the airwaves right now. People that can’t hate on me are going to hate on her.

You think that’s what it is?
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.

It seems much of criticism comes from the blonde dye job.

That shit look good to me. She is an artist. She changed her hair color cause she wanted to change it. I aint have shit to do with it. Why I look like walking around making someone change their hair color. Like y’all aint got nothing to do.

Did you feel some sort of way about Johntá Austin, Jermaine Dupri, and Usher were clowning her?

Hmm mmm, of course I did. I called all of them. First person I called was Johntá Austin.

What did he say?
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.

On the boards with your name next to triangle?

A triangle, a rectangle, whatever it is. Nobody ain’t got time for that. 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.

I know I would.
So, I know it ain’t that. So what is it? Cause other than that you messing with my money. Now when you playing with my money, [you] talking a whole ‘nother ball game.

Right.
And 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.

Did you speak to Usher?
He 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.

Did you ever think twice about hooking up with Christina Milian being that she’s been with Nick Cannon and producer Dre?
I only know people when I see ‘em. And from that day forward is what I know about them.

So it never crossed your mind?
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.

So, it’s all business at the end of the day.

We out here trying to get this money. Let them keep taking pictures. How about that? While you taking pictures, wondering what we doing in between them pictures, we just going to get that money.

    that interview confused the HELL out of me!!! are they a couple or not! His last album isnt even platinum so hes really feeling himself! Ursh is the only one who shouldve apologized…after waking to what he has every morning how could he talk!!

  • mimi

    He sounds like he’s pimping her ass. She over here. Johnta fucking with my money. BOY STOP! He DOES have an ego and I’m glad he can see that shit. Doesn’t seem like there’s shit humble about his ass. C. Milian is bad… she’s beautiful and once upon a time, she used to dress her ass off. IDK wtf she’s been on as of late. Dream, no one is hating on her because she’s next to you! Nigga YOU aint IT! She’s an artist— correct. And being that puts her in the public. that Barbie blonde hair is NOT whats popping. And when did ANYONE say DREAM MADE HER DO IT!?!?! His own ego filled in that blank??!! People just said she looked a hot shitty ass mess and she did. The whole get up to go with the new hair was just wrong. So yeah JD and Co may have been goofing off… but guess what nigga… the votes are in… and the shit is a mess!!! Everything aint for everyone.

    Now… Ive actually bought a C. Milian CD. Stop acting like she has a Beyonce voice. She’s something short of a Cassie… but she just is NO WHERE NEAR as flyy as Cassie. So stop acting like you got a bankroll for fucking with Milian. Now, you pull a Rihanna and make it about style and not singing… then you might cake off. In other words… cut the shit homeboy. People clowned her ass and moved on. she aint that serious and neither are u.

    Ps. how do u call ur own new album a classic? Aw man he kills me.

  • ajam

    well yeah he does have a big ego. So the fuck what in this industry you have to. Bloggers were saying he made her do it. People are hating and ursher and Johnta both cant talk. I dont even know who the fuck he is nemore. Ursher can’t talk cause he lays next to that thing he calls a wife everynight. He just doesnt have room. Jd his lil gets squashed by Janet everynight. So that group cant talk. Goodbye.

  • Lala

    Dream the blonde hair babe is with you for a hit song and even though you are hitting it,everybody is entitled to thier own opinioun, how you are going to call these guys up for dissing her, The hair does not fit her, she is pretty but it is not her. NOW I SAID IT CALL ME UP! and to Usher apologizing, like Kanye West say don’t fix your lips to say something you will end apologying, but you was RIGHT USHER! Christina girl that hair is a mess, it look like Brittany Spears messed up weave, or Hannah Montana ‘s wig.

  • lala

    DREAM STOP trying to make Nivea jealous by bringing Christina on 106 and park, you should have dropped her off on the strip, because she look like a prostitute. Now ya’ll making money! and if you don’t watch it Lil Wayne will pick her up and remix BEAT LIKE A COP. The relationship just look fake to me.

  • too funny

    Christina is a cute girl(no homo) Lol but that hair color made her look like the cute hood rat girl Iin the hood who needs a visit from the fashion police! I saw her and thought “Code Ten Man Down”! Unfortunately it looked like a desperate cry for attention. She’s probably a nice girl but singing NO step away from the mic! Pretty girls are a dime a dozen unfortunately she doesn’t have what it takes to rule the charts nor have longevity in the game! And Dream sweety no one is hating on you or her people are just stating their opinions! And as far as you being cocky you are hot right now boo! Beware the one who boasts that he does not fall!

  • ANON

    THESE SO CALLED “CELEBS” NEED TO GET OFF THEIR HIGH HORSE!!!! WHEN WILL THEY REALIZE THAT THEIR FANS ARE THE ONES THAT MAKE THEM.. IN THE WORDS OF OUTCAST ( REAL MUSIC)

    “IF YOU DON’T MOVE YOUR FEET, WE DON’T EAT, SO WE LIKE NECK TO NECK”

    IM SO FREAKING TIRED OF THESE PEOPLE, ROLLING AROUND TALKING ABOUT THE MONEY THEY MAKING, FLASHING THEIR LAMBOS, YOU WOULDN’T HAVE THAT IF NO ONE PURCHASED YOUR TICKET OR CDS ( WHICH I DON’T, AND WONT). PEOPLE ARE LOSING THEIR HOUSES AND JOBS ARE HARD TOO FIND, 600 PEOPLE APPLIED FOR 1 JANITOR POSITION.

    WHY NOT THESE CELEBS COME THROUGH AND GIVE SOME OF THEIR MONEY BACK, PUT IT IN THE COMMUNITY OR ADOPT 1 FAMILY O HELP OUT IN THESE TIMES, THAT WOULD BE AWESOME, IF ONE CELEB WENT AND HELPED OUT A FAMILY THAT WAS LOSING THEIR HOME OR HELPED THEM WITH FOOD.

    SMH… THESE PEOPLE, I DON’T KNOW.

  • Santana

    If he cared anything about the girl, he would tell her that blond looks fucked up on her. He knew that shit would get the bloggers talking and he probably boosted her up, “Yeah Baby, you gon’ shut the game DOWN!” He knows just having her on his arm will get people talking, and he loves the shit. You can tell how he smiles at the papparazzi every time you see them together!

    Trying to say he’s out the loop with the gossip, FOH with that

  • aziajs

    Usher, Johnta, etc. were wrong for clowning Christina. Yes, the hair looks bad but they acted childish and silly. It was really unnecessary and they are too old for it.

  • Dolce Bella

    Who is Usher? Fuck that lil sellout. He was the main one on TRL getting all bitchy about everyone clowning his ugly wife. Now he wants to talk about someone’s chick? Hypocrite! I’m not even down for that. He got some nerve. He should press replay on that episode and take his own adivce. Now he sitting here looking dumb because:

    1. His album didn’t do half of what he expected in it’s first week… [no body wants you anymore.

    2. Ppl still clowning your manly wife.

    3. You let The Dream dismiss your ass and your stupid comments. You called him up! Lame.

    From here on out, all Usher CDs will be downloaded… well, only the good songs at least.

  • taj

    The Dream is still dreaming he needs to wake the fuck up. Stevie Wonder can see that hair is messed up She is pretty, but the hair is not for her, Maybe if she was posing for Playboy, She does look desperate for attention. She dates all these producers,WAKE UP DREAM she is fucking for tracks,If he don’t give her a hit song she will move on.Dream is dating her because he wants to make Nivea jealous, it’s like when things started moving for him and he gets a lil fame. Nivea did not care she went for lil Wayne, Dream is still hurt and Christina and him are using one another.He made a couple of hit tracks Why he did not do it for Nivea? he just did not want her to shine he knew Lil wayne still wanted to beat her like a cop, he was trying to handcuff, Now he’s trying to throw Christina in Nivea’s face, he should have tell her she looked whack before he did that.

  • Cornbread

    I’m with WTF, what is this dude talking about. He is not really answering the interviewers questions and when he does it is like he is talking in code. Pleae help me decipher what the hell he is REALLY saying.

    THIS INTERVIEW AIN’T IT!!

  • funny as hell

    He’s pretty fat and he hair is messed up

  • Cancer 82

    Okay I like the Dreams music, but one thing I cant stand is a cocky ass dude. We make you! If it wasnt for your fans and them bloggers we would be like The Dream who? Be thankful that they even wasted the strenght of their fingers to type that shit about you and her tired ass. She have to be fucking for tracks, when she does get a hit, she fucking the dude that produced it!! It doesnt take a mathmatician to see 2 plus 2 makes 4. she a slut bucket and he holding the pail!

  • em_o

    the dream is talented but when all is said and done he wants nivea back and he needs to get back with her, they have 3kids together come on dream, but if you didnt have those kids i would try to hollerrr lmaoo. But yeah im and nivea need to work things out!!

  • funny

    the dream kept it real. johnta austin is probably just jealous cuz the dream is churning out hitz and has a more suceesful singing career. i thought jd and ush would b classier they all came off as douches in that vid. dream asked millian to a party with mariah carey man that is funny!

  • wisdom

    KEEP DOING YOUR THING THEDREAM, AND YOU KNOW YOU LOVE NIVEA THIS WHAT THIS CD IS ALL ABOUT, SHE A DOWN TO EARTH GIRL AND SHE KEEPS IT REAL, AINT NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT

  • Funkyfinger54

    Christina needs to change her hair color back. The blonde is not a good look for her. She is a pretty girl w/ mad talent. Too bad people are too ignorant to see it. I’m not hating on her either. I’m a fan of hers and I just don’t think the look fits her. Mary J yes Christina no!!!

  • Qt-pie

    These blogs are DEEP-and solemnly I agree with most. He’s hittn C.M. because he can. I personally don’t think it would be hard for ANY man with fame to get at her. The hair is a bit much and I agree w/Dream that she’s ‘trying something new’-changing up a bit but he don’t give a fuck about her hair-she could dye that shit pink and green and he’ll still be hittn her…he wants the pussy…but to fall in love…get engaged…I personally hope he chooses better.

  • tk

    The Dream is phenominal! Flat out! No matter what everyone says about him he is still humble about the situation. Just because he’s a celeb y’all saying he cocky. He sound real as hell to me! Keep doin your thing Dream and me and my homies will still support you, not through burned cd’s either. Keep inspiring people!!!

  • haha
