Rap-Up TV Interviews Monica: Part 1

Before the curtain closed on her tour with Trey Songz over the weekend, Rap-Up TV caught up with Monica backstage at her Los Angeles show at Club Nokia moments prior to her hitting the stage.

The R&B survivor was genuine and gracious as could be, answering all our questions openly and honestly. With her boyfriend, L.A. Laker Shannon Brown, by her side, the 29-year-old music biz vet described the craziest fan encounter that she has witnessed and revealed that Trey Songz will be featured on the radio version of “Here I Am,” the third single from her gold-selling album Still Standing.

The proud mom also shared a story involving Justin Bieber that’s bound to embarrass her sons when they get older, whether she thinks Soulja Boy is a good role model for youth, and how cutting her hair has brought her full circle sixteen years later.

Don’t miss the rest of our interview with Mo where she talks about the new love in her life and her relationship with Brandy, coming later this week.
