Trina will launch a new clothing line, Diamond
Princess Wear. Launching in the fall, the clothing line will have a variety
of styles, from casual wear to "glammed up night attire." "$1,000
for a shirt – everybody can’t afford that," Trina told AllHipHop.com "It’s
going to be popular because everybody can rock it. Whether you are going on
a dinner date, in a club, its versatile."
Trina said that she designed most of the clothing,
but also had input on clothes from other New York based designers. "It’s
fire, it’s blazing to me. I made it very spicy," she said.
While her latest album Diamond Princess
hits stores August 27th, Trina said that she is setting her sights beyond rapping.
"I get like various movie offers," she revealed. "I take time
to look it over. I want to make sure the movie I land and I start filming is
something that’s not stereotypical."
Trina aspires to have her acting endeavors taken
as serious as her music career. She seemed to agree with Samuel L. Jackson,
who doesn’t believe rappers should be given prominent roles because of their
celebrity status. "I don’t want somebody to give me a movie because ‘she
is the celebrity/ hip-hop rap chick,’" she said matter of emphatically.
"If I can do a movie with Ice Cube, I can
do a movie for Tom Cruise. I want to be able to do both."
