HONEY MAG INTERVIEW - MY COMMENTS

While out on promo I've learned that my Honeymag.com interview is being heavily talked about. Although I've never read the magazine I thought the questions prepared for me were indicative of the type of magazine that Honey is. In response to my interview, I want to take this opportunity to apologize to my fans if anything I said offended anyone. I was simply being honest. The interview was done in fun and not with the intention of being shocking or offensive. For the blogs and people who take things out of context (conveniently dismissing my several references to safe sex), I do not have a STD nor do I practice unprotected sex. I look forward to using this misinterpretation as an opportunity to highlight the importance of safe sex to my fans. I've always practiced and promoted safe sex and even wrote a song about it (Store Run - 2007). I shared an isolated incident that happened 8 years ago when I was a teenager. Lastly, I did, as I do in every interview, answer the questions that were asked. Lighten up folks LOL :) BONG!

I was shocked by some of the things you said, but I didn't take it to heart. If people want to take bits and snippets and try and make it out to be what the entire article was about then... fuck em, lol. I would much rather you be open and honest with your fans than to try and be someone you aren't, do what you do boo. Deuces!

p.s. I can't get down with the choking though, lol, If Im about to cum, I already can't breathe, I am not trying to pass out, lol, still love you though!

Kenya said...

to me it was funny

I personally liked the interview...it showed your real side and honesty :)

i still loves you boo boo ! <33

Selena said...

It's hard to find honesty within a person let alone a celebrity. People who criticized the article must have nothing better to do. Although I am a fan, my comment is not based on a biased mentality. At the end of the day, you are Tremaine and Tremaine should have real opinions, real experiences, and should be able to shoot the breeze and be real without ridicule.

SPADES said...

Man, its just being honest! (like you said)

A lot of people are going to quote what they want and change around what you say so it can be funny, blog able, or what not to them and others... But fck it, you Trey so its whatever! "Yuuup"

People please visit the clinic, ya'll need too!

Monica said...

I personally didn't find anything wrong with the article, I thought it was funny. You pretty much said the same thing you said on Lip Service. I knew this was going to get out of control, WHAT IS THE BIG DEAL? You just keep doing you baby.

Anonymous said...

Personally, I thought the interview itself was fine. You're not doing anything that most dudes out there aren't doing. There's no point in lying to the press or the fans cuz it will come back to haunt you. However, Honey did you dirty by trying to up their sales w/ a scandalous title. Where were your PR reps? "porn obsession and STD" [neither of which are true if you actually read the interview] frames the story like you're unsafely slutting around so you can't be mad if ppl are interpreting it that way. but still, it's more buzz for the album release... @jnelle66

Che' said...

I ENJOYED the interview...I RESPECT AND VALUE u as an artist and your openness and HONESTY!! thats why u have the fan base you have now, bcuz of u being real with your fans and not fabricating anything... ♥ ♥ =)

MEGAN said...

I took no offense at all! I mean u were being honest who are we to say anything? I actually thought it was kinda funny! I was shocked a lil bit, but then it made me want u more! I knew u were a freak but I was dang lmao. If anybody was offended it was probably somebody that did worse and they are just plain ignorant. I love you just the same if not more =)

Anomaly said...

Your honesty is appreciated. I didn't expect anything less when it comes to a Trey article lol. Everything must be answered. I mean the interviewer wanted to know, so . . . there's no complaints over in this direction. LOL

Anonymous said...

I know BLOGS are untrustworthy. Keep it going Trey.
LOL:)

Diamond said...

Honestly I thought it was halarious. It sounded like you was trying to be funny. Every boy has his or her stories. People need to realize that just because a person is famous does not exempt he/she from haveing some of the same experiences as others. Keep doing you. Thats why people love you (including me).lol. keep your head up and God Bless!!!!!!

p.s you need to come to the GREAT CITY OF DALLAS!!! austin isnt the place to be. lol

Karen said...

The interview was fine. You were very open in your responses which displayed your morality. It seemed you clearly communicated that you advocate safe sex due to your pervious exposure. I actually was cracking up when you were asked,

So no girls are poking holes in your condoms?
Trey: No girl touches my condoms. My condoms are mine. (lil kid voice) lol:)

It gets no realer than that Self-Preservation.It showed growth through your experience. Now the bloggers are gossiping and fueling the rumor mill. This goes to show that they can’t read. But then again there are Two Types of Writers: 1) those that report facts and 2) those that specialize and thrive off fiction.

Kitty said...

Hmm...first thoughts...did he just day that. But how can someone get mad or upset with honesty. Either you want the truth or you want lies...pick people and keep it moving.

One Love :-)
Kitty

AP said...

The interview was tight, actually. I can def appreciate you deflating the situation though. Congrats.

ezmii said...

I mean I'm not going to lie,some of the things you said were just straight up wrong but the way i see it is well atleast you were being honest about it and besides its nice to have a guy( let alone a celeb) be honest about his shit !! so kudos for that !

Brittany said...

i loved it. you were honest and that's just how you see things. we always talking about we love you but how can we really love you if we don't see all of you? girls just like you cuz you're cute and can sing but i'm definitely feelin you more now cuz you're real

Neekneek86 said...

At first I was like is this really Trey?? Well he is a guy so hey it is what it is. lol. Ur a grown man and there's nothing wrong with what u said! Ppl act as if they haven't ever thought or said anything the same or worser than what u said (I know I have) and U took responsibiliry for ur actions. I also appreciate u talking about safe sex. Everyone walks around like STD's never happen unless its HIV/AIDS and u kept it real. Hopefully u will touch the life of sum young boy or girl. No one can knock u for being you! I still love u if no one else does...U are definently Keeping It Real!!

PrettiKash said...

Like many others have said before me atleast you were honest! Being politically correct to an audience that doesn't care about being politically correct would be cheating us all out of a good read. So I love the fact that you kept us entertained with your wit and honesty. But um like someone said before, idk about the choking...but whatever floats your boat! If you like it, I love it babes lol!!

Miss Breezy said...

Trey I loved the interview. I loved the fact that you kept it real just like you always do. The only thing that had me messed up was the whole choking thing. I just can't get with that. I messed with a guy who loved to do the choking. I could never understand why. Anyways i feel like people are entitled to like whatever they like. I dont look at you any differently. Keep doing what you're doing because you are wonderful at it and you killing the game. I can't wait til September 1st!!!!!!!!!! BONG!

chasidi21 said...

I think it was a great interview regardless of what the questions or answers were as long as you kept it 100% real and didnt lie to your fans.

*angielala* said...

Trey there is no need for you to explain yourself! You kept it real with the readers and that's all we could ever ask from you. Some things being said may have shocked fans but in the end you were being honest about everything even the STD. I commend you for being able to be so open and being able to share the good and the bad with the world.

Dsheray said...

I love that you are honest. They shouldn't ask the question if they don't want the truth. Don't let them change you you will always have respect from your fans.People will have something to say but fuck them. They are only mad because they don't have the balls to be real. Your honesty will make you bigger.

brandnewniqua said...

i just love how freakin down to earth you are i think thats another reason i've been a faithful follower of your progress

Noni said...

u definitely kept it real and i luv u 4 dat:)

fefe2470 said...

Mia[[BEEN]] the[[REALIST]] said...

trillest shit i EVA read i got mad respect for u ...and ur REAL fans
do too...im addin this shit on mah blog...N0W...B0NG...Belee dat

iAmMouse said...

I'm happy that you cleared this up because the media always takes what people say out of context to gain ratings. I never believed for a second that you had an STI/STD because I've heard you plenty of times telling others to rap it up....BTW, I love "Store Run", although it's a bedroom bumpa there's also a very important message behind it.

-*Mouse♥

PinkRoyaltie said...

I took NO offense to that interview. You answered the questions that were given, & you seemed to have answered them 100% honestly...thats commendable. I actually respect you even more, not only because of the artist that you are, but because of the man that you are. Most celebs are worried about their image & won't answer certain questions. I love that you keep it real!

(I will have to do a "skittles" test & see if it works lol!)

Miss-Nellie said...

Dude, those blog took snippets of answers to make things into shock value so people would click on the site to earn more money off of you. I thought the interview was funny and the whole STD thing; atleast you were honest and did shed some light on the situation which happens to almost EVERY american. Some people casted judgement before reading the entire article and half of those people judging don't even know their own status when it comes to STD & STI's......

Keep doing what you do Trey!!

juliana said...

Why ppl always got to be so mean like celebrites are not humans, u did ur thing.lol and u get finer by the day...........i cant wait till u come to miami

Missy West said...

Hmm now I'm interested in reading this interview to see what all the fuss is about. I'm sure any1 would know that you were joking referring to unprotected sex but then again so many ppl do not practice safe sex and unless they know u it is possible to get it twisted. But imma go look up the interview and i'll holla back.

Salla' said...

Its all good trey. Your true fans understand. So its all good. Its just niggas thats out there to fuck up celeberties lifes and fan bses. But they didn't mess you up at all. LOL ;) LOVE YA!!

Anonymous said...

I was actually extremely disappointed in the interview. It was absolutely crass. I miss the Trey Songz that I thought I knew when "Just Gotta Make It" came out. I still appreciate your art HOWEVER I felt as if your responses were made merely to incite controversy, like a ploy for attention and to boost sales for your upcoming album. If that was your intention then BRAVO but I cringed at certain things I read. Discretion and tact are so important... Still a supporter-I for one am not a supporter of the word FANATIC-just very disappointed. But I'm sure the little trollops just loved it!

kimmy said...

Don't worry about it Trey. Let the haters talk, that's all they know how to do. You just keep being you and know this you will always have your fans support!!!! WE LOVE YOU AND WE GO HAMODOCIOUS(just made up word.lol) FOR YOU ALL DAY!!!

vbryan said...

i love the interview i want to know more of u so dont worry about people i love still it was funny to BONG!!!

Keli said...

You like to choke...

raises an eyebrow...hmmm...

That's the one thing that comes with fame...the misconceptions. If you are honest, people will take your words and contort them to meet their own self serving purposes...

stay real, stay humble.

Ila Adrianne said...

I aint feel offended in any way boo!!! U kept it a hunnit% real, cant b madd @ dat. I think I'm gon' b tryna figure out if sour-skittles have the same effect all night lol; but I still Luv ya... YUUUP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

kimanisioux said...

I think that the interview was honest. I feel like if what you said isn't some ones thing they should just say, I didn't like that interview. And then move on with their lives

phat258386 said...

Your interview was real and true honesty is the key that's what i love about you so much how you keep it 100 with your fans and the world. If anyone did get offend by it oh well at least you did the right by apologizing for it no matter how big or small it was your true fans should have understood where you were coming from I'm your biggest fan and I understand how come everyone else can't DAMN this shit is Bong Yuuup.

shawna said...

TREY U ARE THE BEST, I READ ALL OF YOUR INTERVIEWS AND THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITES. I LOVED HOW U KEPT IT SO REAL(ECSPECIALLY THE CHOKIN PART YUUUP!), U ARE HUMAN JUS LIKE THE REST OF US AND ITS GOOD TO SHOW PPL THAT SOMETIMES.IT SEEMED LIKE SHE WAS TRYNA GO HARD AT U IN THE BEGINNING BUT I LOVED YOUR RESPONSES.

U really didnt offind noboey(well not me) but dnt worry u keptreal and u was truthful so thats all that matters but its all gub thought..ur fans will still love and adore u..ur still in our hearts!!xoxmuch luv..

Naira said...

when people are open about sex and their past issues others always make a big deal out of it.

it happens everyday. you were just keeping it real and i respect that!!

Ms. M said...

Why apologize? You answered the questions that were asked. Those who took offense should not have read the interview. The interview seems like it was done out of fun. There's no need to apologize for being you.

maniyasweets said...

The funny thing about the situaion is the fact that you were just simply asnwering the questions you were being asked. All I am saying is the people who took offense to your article obviously did not have to read your answers. They could've read the questions and if they felt that it was too much for them they should've skipped to the next question. If they skipped those questions it would not have been an issue! Keep being yourself and keep doing you!

Sincerely Lisa said...

Sigh, see with you Sags no one has to ask for candor, you guys just give it automatically. You gave real answers to some real and entertaining questions. Thanks for keeping it 100%.

Anonymous said...

The interview was fine! It was for an adult audience and you answered truthfully, just like others have said. It made you sexier to me :-) Who gives a crap if they don't agree with your lifestyle, you are NOT anywhere as bad as many guys. You are being safe now, and many of the people who are talking mess probably have contracted STD's themselves but don't know because they were never tested and now they're just becoming a public health hazard! *smh*

Anyway, your real fans are still here (we already knew you were a freak so we aint surprised!)

Ashley said...

As everybody has obviously stated here...I think there was nothing wrong with your interview. I respect the fact that you answered EVERY question. It shows that you are open minded and that you are not intimidated by people so much that you don't express the REAL you! I must say I enjoyed getting to "know" a little more about you. I hope that you enjoyed Charleston while you were here! Smooches...Oh and BTW, R. Kelly "Greatest Sex" is my fav song too! Ciao.

Cant knock you for being real! Muah Love ya

elii said...

I don't think u should apologize at all! The interview was funny & at least u kept it 100. Whoever took it as offensive, is bitter as hell
n don't know how to have fun.
But you know ur true fans are always gonna love you even if you do choke girls lmao
& the skittles? Lol I'm gonna laugh whenever I see someone eat it!

litmus said...

i didn't take the interview with any offense whatsoever. you were just being honest. damn, you a real freak! but anyway, love you regardless.

Tashur Raquel said...

i just loveeeeeeee you Trey. the straightforwardness just makes you so much more sexy. Like, you dont have to hide anything from the media or his fans. You're just confident about what you do, and that just makes you on top of the game! yuuuuuuuuuup. love you <3

Missy West - Bay Area said...

HA! ok so I read the article so i'm back with my thoughts...Uhm HELL to the NAW! What u mean u like to choke; that S&M ish but to each his own...Threw up huh? Fa real? I have a lot of brothers and homeboys & i've NEVER heard that 1 b4..."Women are weird(laughs)" funny we think the same about men lol - Wowo that was a long article overall I think u were just being honest and being urself. It wasn't out of line just GROWN. Some stuff i could've not heard(read) cuz it tainted my picture of u a lil bit but at the same time that was u being u. Never knew u were SO SEX CRAZED or maybe that's just what was being asked so that was the convo. I still think ur a cool and respectable dude so do u - YUUUPPPP!!

Fauzia aka mufasa said...

There's no need for you to apologize..some ppl are 2 critical on others and how they should carry themselves. That doesn't mean they're right. I loved the interview and i wasn't shocked by it at all...if they were your real fans. They would knw ur a very sexual and open person. Your beyond the typical r&b singer, and thats why i think they were shocked, b/c not alot of singer talk like that..........but hey great interview loved it and i cant wait to receive my package.

Peace & <3 FAUZIA!!

NIA said...

What do you mean you can't make love to everyone??? You're disappointing so many hopefuls out here homie. All your "fans" that go "ham" wanna either bone you or be your girl. I am a supporter of your music because I love great music. And you have so much potential musically and talent wise. Don't you think your image, your long term brand and success may be at risk/ limited because of your KNOWN sexual prowess. I dont want to know that you are having soo many sexual escapades with all these different women. You will begin to value privacy some day, bcuz your rep will hurt your "real" relationships. I am starting to look at you as someone with littler substance who's all about sex and not the great musical artist that you are. You portray yourself as this sex god then thats whatever one is going to look at you are. You have so much potential. Think about your legacy boo... Be greater TREY. :))

Hey Shae! said...

It was a good interview. You were honest with yours and a lot of people can't understand that becuse they act like people in the industry are not 'real' people. As long as your sex is consentual do you. Be safe & keep up the good work. ;-)

pixie hollow said...

THAT WAS THE REALEST INTERVIEW.YOU ARE THE REALEST AND MOST HONEST ARTIST...

Ms Johnson said...

The interview was good...it was real...if they didnt like it then maybe they should've stopped readin it at the pt where they figured that out...there's nothin to apologize for ur a grown man...ur fans know that

P_shesoflii said...

As a fan I appreciate your realness and your down to earth swagger. Its a pleasing to hear your voice singing with so much heart and dedication and know that u are just as passionate with your personal expectations. Great job !!! I look forward to the future of R&B with an artist like u. BTW..u kinda easy on the eyes, so that helps..lol..did I say easy, I meant drop dead freakin'gorgeous..but don't tell my BF I said that..he b hate'n! Muah!
