New York, NY (PRWEB) October 16, 2004
Tales of casino fights, ferocious court battles and a singer-starlet that packs heat all punctuate the sizzling 16th Anniversary issue of Sister 2 Sister (S2S) magazine, burning up the newsstands right now.
LilÂ Kim tells S2S publisher Jamie Foster Brown her most recent court battle is nothing but a Âwitch hunt.Â She also claims her innocence in the 2001 case that alleges that she conspired, obstructed justice and perjured herself to cover for a shooting involving members of her entourage
ÂI think that I was more of a warrior because I was like, no matter what I know IÂm going to beat this because IÂm innocent,Â she said. ÂYou know I have to deal with the cards. I leave it all in GodÂs hands, and there is nothing I can do about it. IÂm very spiritual and I know that God is never going to give me anything that I canÂt handleÂ if anything He will carry it for me.Â
While the rapper says sheÂs relying on the Spirit to get her through the ordeal, she did not hesitate to call the whole ordeal Âa continued indictment of hip hop.Â
Readers will also hear the inside scoop on how Kim got $1 million worth of stolen jewelry back using a tough attorney.
In another exclusive interview, entertainer Jamie Foxx talks about the fight that occurred in a New Orleans casino involving his sister, Deirdre, after a day of filming the Ray Charles movie. Despite witnessing his sister being manhandled by New Orleans police, Foxx says he remains cool.
ÂIf you want me to move, you donÂt have to put your hands on me,Â Foxx said, recalling the incident. ÂThen the officer grabs me again and my sister gets in between us. Now he grabs my sister, bashes her in the casino table, pulls out his cuffs and manhandles her. Â
On the Ray Charles movie, Unchain My Heart - Jamie Foxx confirmed that Ray Charles didnÂt treat women all that nicely sometimes.
ÂI think that when you look at a personÂs life, with jagged edges and everything like that, thatÂs what makes a person real,Â Foxx said. ÂThatÂs why you liked Bill Clinton. He had a little dirt on him, it was not like bad dirt - it was just like he was human.Â
Also, in the November issue, Monica explains to S2S why she carries a gun.
ÂWell, itÂs a hobby of mine. I enjoy going to the range,Â she said. ÂI enjoy going to the country and using them and thatÂs something that I get from my dad. We always did that together.Â
Monica also denies rumors that she has romantic ties with Young Buck from G-Unit although he was in her video.
ÂWell, you know how our industry is - if you sit at a dinner table more than once, youÂre dating,Â she said. ÂHe was extremely nice and it was a real, real pleasure meeting him. We were introduced and a week later, the video was shot and it went from there.Â
When asked what sheÂs looking for in a man, Monica was candid.
ÂThe one thing that I need more than anything else is for him to be strong,Â she said. ÂWhen I say strong, I mean that in a lot of different ways. I think a weak mind falls prey to everything you can imagine. ThatÂs temptation with other women, thatÂs not being able to provide for his family, thatÂs not respecting the most important person in my life next to God, which is my mother.Â
