Ludacris is the new cover and feature of the new HoneyMag.com issue. He’s talking (and…not talking) about his new “bad chick”, his next album Ludaverse, his 10 years in the game, and more ish:
Who is Ludacris’ mystery woman? Is she someone special in your life?
I try to preserve certain things and keep things special and that is one thing that I would like to keep private.
Describe your ideal woman.
I don’t know what my type is until I see or meet that person. I guess I could say, intelligence, great personality and beauty, inside and out. I don’t discriminate.
Curves or model-esque stature?
I prefer women with curves.
How long is a good love-making session?
All day long.
The theme is men vs women. What were you trying to do originally Battle Of The Sexes and how did it change?
I was trying to get an album where you had a balance of both the male and female perspectives on many different issues and topics. I feel like it’s a male-dominated industry and I wanted to get a chance to hear more of the female voice on different subjects. At the same time, you have regular Ludacris songs on there. Long story short, I have records talking about women, records talking to women and records where they are talking back to me. That’s exactly what the premise was [and is].
Talk about your reunion with Bill ’O Reilly.
Every since he said something about me on television, I’ve been hoping to run into him in person to confront him on everything he said. I finally got that opportunity last year at the White House Correspondence dinner. When I saw his name on the list of people present, I immediately went up and confronted him. He had this look on his face, like I was the last person that he expected to see.
The first thing I said to him was, ‘I wanted to meet the person who had so much to say about me but knows absolutely nothing about me.’ From there we had a conversation, which is confidential at this point. I can’t talk about it. But I can let you know that out of our fifteen-minute conversation, some good came out of it because we did something good for the community, we did something for charity. It’s confidential so I can’t really go into detail about it.
How did you choose the line-up of female emcees to accompany you on this co-ed album?
I wanted to take females you know, that have already made a name for themselves, like Eve, Trina and, of course, Lil’ Kim and then get some new females that are making a name for themselves now, like Nicki Minaj and Diamond.
Can you give us some details on the next album?
Details are sketchy but it’s called Ludaversal. You’ll probably have it at the end of 2010 or somewhere at the beginning of 2011.
Do you prefer dating or are you happier in a monogamous relationship?
When you’re dating you’re looking for that someone to be in a monogamous relationship with, so I’d rather be in a monogamous relationship.
