T.I. Talks Family, Trouble, and Chris Brown & Rihanna with Joy Behar

T.I.

With five days to go until Trouble Man hits stores, T.I. stopped by Joy Behar’s Current TV show “Say Anything!” on the latest stop of his promo tour. During their sit-down interview, the King of the South spoke about his troubled past, his sons’ unusual names (Messiah and Domani), and what he thinks of Chris Brown and Rihanna’s reunion.

On comparisons between his family and “The Cosby Show’s” Huxtables: “I’m extremely honored and flattered by that. I just hope to do half as good.”

On how his family has responded to his run-ins with the law: “They support me and they know my heart is pure.”

On his past: “I’m not condoning or trying to bring any glamour to the fact that I went to prison, but I must acknowledge that I’m a whole lot more popular now… However, if I had to do it all again, I’d definitely give it all back.”

On Chris Brown and Rihanna’s reunion: “I think that’s their decision. I know they have a lot of genuine love for one another. I don’t think that either of them would leave the other, go somewhere else, and find someone that would make them as happy.”

On whether he would let his daughter date someone like Chris: “Absolutely not, but when my daughter’s grown, what can I say?”

    Why cant the interview just be about HIM? I know he’s worked with Rihanna before (back when I actually liked her) and Chris (I never liked that song) but honestly who cares about his opinion?? I bet he didnt even wanna answer the question cuz it’s irrelevant to him.

    P.S. RIHANNA & CBs “RELATIONSHIP” IS SO MESSY VIA TWITTER…THEY DO A SONG “NOBODYS BUSINESS” BUT THEY BOTH DETAIL ALL OF THEIR BUSINESS ON TWITTER…RIHANNA WENT OFF ON HIM FOR BEING WITH HIS EX IN PARIS A FEW DAYS AGO…WTF!

  3. You Mad 'Cause I Don't D--k-Ride Ya Fave?

    I’m not sure what the correct term is, but why do all people have to ask black entertainers how they feel about Chris Brown & Rihanna? First Howard Stern & the Game, now this? Like, what does it matter what their opinion is? Let Rihanna & Chris be, if they happy, no one else should be pressed, they are not half as annoying as Joe Budden and his girl Kaylin who stay throwing their info in our faces. I don’t even think Chris has acknowledged Rihanna the same way Joe is constantly putting his girl out there. Let it go, it’s old news

    @You Mad ‘Cause I Don’t D–k-Ride Ya Fave?, if you worked in media you would know why she has to ask the question, plus she eve said why she was asking it, her producers were telling her to do it….its the business…

    You can tell T.I. doesn’t want to talk about the past, I can’t believe they’re still asking about things he did in the past, ask him about Trouble Man and how great the album is! It’s an amazing album, by far his best work to date, and the best rap album I’ve heard in YEARS! I’d say since College Dropout

    funny how the article about him and Pink’s song has 65+ comments and its not on the top stories of the week but since this story has Rihanna’s name in it, it’s on it despite the fact that this only has 15+ comments. T.I. is an icon, show him some respect!

    Why wasn’t the question ask, would you want your daughter to date someone like you? He learn from his mistake by returning to prison, give Chris Brown a chance to mature, he’s 23 and T.I is 30 now, wisdom comes with age.
