The Celebreality Interview – Ray J

|

Last week, Ray J stopped by the VH1 Digital office to discuss life, love and, of course, For the Love of Ray J 2. In the first clip (above), Ray talks about the importance of respecting the women that are competing for his love. He also discusses Cocktail and her recent comments about him, including one suggesting that his participation in the show is only “exposure and money.”

In this segment, Ray talks about Season 2, and I ask him what went through his head when news broke that Danger had claimed she was pregnant with his child during Season 1:

The discussion in this one is all about Whitney Houston, to whom Ray has been linked romantically:

And finally, Ray talks about his family (including his awesome, awesome grandmother), what he wants to get out of this season of For the Love of Ray J and shows his team a hell of a lot of love:

    Ray J is likable and cute (and so is Rich!). He is also very charismatic and has a lot of talent.

    Still, I think it’s been established that about 98% of the people appearing on these shows are doing it simply for the exposure. Just read exit interviews from Doll, Brooke, or any of the “winners” of these shows.

    Hell, even Bret Michaels himself has said in magazine interviews that these shows aren’t for love.

    ur hot

  3. Jules says:

    I feel compelled to get this off my chest. I think Ray J is such a corny wannabee. In the opening episode of For The Love, (Lust, Attention of the media, Possibility of future tv appearances), of Ray J, he is seen getting off of a private jet, getting into what looks like a Ferrari and taking off into the sunset, all with a look of sincere contemplation on his face. Contemplation of which _(&!^)*)$%@)(@~&@ he is going to have to choose among many this season? I am a Christian so Lord, please forgive me if I say that I do not think he is very attractive at all, he wishes that he could be Diddy and VH1 should be ashamed of rewarding someone who had a party celebrating the release of a sex tape between him and his ex-girlfriend. He is a money hungry man _(&!^)*)$%@)(@~&@ who thinks he is bigger than he actually is. His sister used to be legitimate but by her appearances on his shows she has proved to be just as money hungry, fame starved as he is. Again, Lord forgive me, but Ray J, you are not all that and all of the girls who tell you that you are on your show are only doing so because they are as attention starved as you are and only want their face in the spotlight. Phew! I said it. Don’t know if I feel really that better though.

  4. Jessica says:

    What a joke. I just laughed and laughed @ how lame he was. Wow. He doesn’t shut-up, and he talks in circles. Poor Rich is doing everything he can to not laugh out loud.lol.. he’s lookin at Ray-J like “wow, you are so lame”.. haha

  5. dualicia says:

    well,um 2 meh he just wonts 2 feel dat empty space in his so called heart. if dat means embarrassin hisself on national television.look at his career dats da joke.dese gurls wont dat attention actin a pure( well u no)dats their business dey gonna have 2 settle down one of dese days
    UM OUT

  6. Christina Longoria says:

    RAY J , YOUR LADIES ARE NASTY!!! IN EVERY EPISODE I NOTCED HOW DIRTY THEIR ROOMS ARE … LOL … MY MOM SAID A GIRL WITH A DIRTY ROOM MORE THAN LIKELY HAS DIRTY UNDER WEAR HA HA … <<<TRUE LOL KISSESSSS

  7. Holland says:

    lmao. He is kind of an adorable idiot, isn’t he? What was that nonsense at the end, completely highjacking the interview and launching it into outer space…but, sort of amusing.

  8. kILLER SKULL says:

    RAY ,BABY MOM DANGER IS ON THE INTERNET POSSING NUDE IN HER BIRTHDAY SUIT ,WHY WOULD HE HAVE UNPROTECTIVE SEX WITH HER AND HE KNOW SHE SLUM HIS HOMEBOY,WHAT ELSE IS SHE OUT THERE DOING,WHO KNOWS ,WHAT IF THAT NOT EVEN HIS BABY IF IT IS SHE SET FOR LIFE,ANOTHER ENTERTAINER BITE THE DUST.

  9. destiny says:

    okay you all have points you made, but remember everyone makes mistakes right. well thats ray’s past, and if you guys think so badly of him why are you wasting your time even commenting about him. Look whatever Ray J’s intentions were before the show of the first season, I’m sure it has changed.You think it is easy having your whole life always recorded with cameras watching your every move? How do you all think you would be in his situation? I think Ray J is really trying to change his life and find a woman to be with. Like he said he is tired of being a hollywood player. So give him a chance to be who he wants to be. He is just another person like all of us except he has a talent that he is good at and noticed for. Let Ray J find out who he is and how he wants his life to be and stop bad mouthing him. You all are acting just like heartbreaker and her little house groupies. As for you little miss Christian Jules who posted below. If you believe in your Lord so much then you know “Only God can judge people”. So before all of you Judge Ray J on his actions and behavior, why don’t you judge yourselves and think of what people who know you would say about you to the public and then comment on how you would react on the situation. Until then you are entitles to your opinions but you really don’t need to post them publicly like it is going to change anything. Ray J is still a good singer and has a good heart. I respect him for how he was raised and I know he will know the right woman for him where ever he finds her one day. Good luck Ray J and happy new year.

    I Love you Ray J and I have watched your Shows #1 & #2. In Show #1 I was shocked when you picked +)(!~#&_)^!$+$^& tail. I didn’t see anything but a physical attraction and you could have gotten that from anyone!

    Truthfully in Show #2 I don’t think any of the four women remaining should win. You are too damn sexxxy for any of those chicks! You have two old women who look good for their age but, what do they really have to offer you? You have one whom I think you really like and “with makeup” she does favor Mariah Carey but she will be doing your boy again and probably a few more of your boys when you turn your back. The other one will drop you when her ex rolls back through town. Why did he really leave her anyway?

    Ray J to sum it up none of the final four are good for you and why did you dump Jaguar again?

    Wouldn’t Jaguar be the type of female you would have been able to bring home to Mom & Dad? She did confuse me when she backed away from your kisses and brushed your hands off her lower back. One would have @(%`(~`)*_*^@^* umed that she just wasn’t interested or that she was actually a good girl who didn’t what to be labeled easy or fast by her family, your family/friends or all your loyal viewers.

    I loved that little duet you had with Jaguar, it was beautiful! So, even if you two don’t pursue a romantic relationship you defintely should try a music career marriage and produce a duet or two together!

    I feel neither of the two women remaining are a match. I believe he knows this. Ms. Berry is a little on the insecure side, a tad needy and with RJ’s sucessful career she won’t be able to handle what that entails.(he’s looking for a strong mature independent “honest” women) Neither have it.

  13. samantha says:

    wuz up with young girls an there hate for older women its ok for them to have ray as a sugar daddy but its not ok for him to have sugar moma older men just need yall to keep them feeling young an ray is ready to become a man need a sugar moma older women are changing the game baby ok simple as that

  14. mw says:

    good luck being a step pappy to a 14 year old that isnt yours

  15. ken2win says:

    Way to go, my brother! As another black man and father, you restored my faith in US! You made a strong decision, for a very beautiful, sensitive and strong sister! Your decision to man-up to additional responsibility with her kids is a great expression of what I believe your father’s comment to you was all about! Mom’s is mom’s and we all know she will forever have your back, period! But when big sis connected on the single mother tip! Game over! I saw a ginuine reparte’ happenin between those two, they connected and for some reason (not really knowing ya’ll, Brando seems to be the one who wouldn’t have played the situation for TV – Sis would have gave you the real, which she did. If she thought or felt something foul in the mix about her – Brando would have got at it wit the realness? Big up to Brandy!
    I am a brothe of 57 yrs. young (could be your dad!) and this is the reality show that I just wanted to see play itself out! I never finished seeing the others to the end!
    As you say, “Keep it 100″ and keep makin good music – you have arrived! As your dad proably said, “Welcome son, to the realm of manhood – where only the elite in the spirit of our forefathers reside!”

    Be Blessed and remember!

    “There are no problems, just situations waiting for a solution!” (sm) Peace!

  17. Tiffany says:

    I think that Ray J does not need another show. He is so wack ,he does not care about these girls he got them all looking crazy and they making a fool of themselves..Looking at season 2 make me dislike that show i really feel bad for these girls.Word of advise to all the4 girls running after ray j do not do it look the other way and stop trying to find love on t.v it will not work with all these people in your business.Will never watch that show again..I’m so over these shows..

  18. Kdayah says:

    Okay wtf with all the yelling going on at the reunion i don’t know if Mz Berry And Ray J are still together and somebody should not have invited coctail butt on the show. Noone knew if they are going to stay together or if they decided to go their separate ways. I’m mad about that, beside waiting for him to make a choice. I would like to have known that. I should have been there to shut all the little girls up. Since it has been shown that little girls think having sex and parting is a way to a man heart that’s the only fun all of them talk about with the exception to MZ Berry and Jaguar, and Extra and by little girls i mean all the twenty something on the show. Can somebody tell us what happen after the arguement backstage. And If their not together then it is only right to have a show for MZ Berry and other older women who are not celebrities to find Love. Let’s have our Looking for love show, Not just a show like Tough Love but a show for real women who want the fairy tale, and not like Bachlorette because those women can find that fairy tale guy, that’s why i don’t look at it anymore. I’m talking about a Minority goup of women. Because you never see that on TV, and because i guess everyone in entertainment think we are not classy enough and that is so untrue. Now, That show I would love to watch and work on. And I mean Minority woman looking at a group of brothers and finding that one of her choice. And said cougars because older women love younger men and there is younger men looking for a more mature women. Let’s make that happen guys.

  19. jay says:

    Season 2 of for the love of Ray was a second chance for Ray to get it right. I really wanted to believe he was ready to settle down, apparently not
    I just hope Mz Berry pays caution to the Red Flags! I hope the future holds the best Cr both for both of you.

  20. meisha says:

    im thankful to be a real woman who can see through men and the lies. why create a show to find love, and to disrespect +%!!)#(()@~%`*@` tail by name calling goes to show who ray j really is,it do seem like it is all about smashing, money, fame and ……….. who is ray j just another man full of himself

  21. Brandy says:

    Ray no matter what your doing these shows for I truely hope you find true love one day and for your sake I hope she is 100% moma APPROVED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!take care babe!

  22. Ricah says:

    RAY U R SOOO. FINE I WISH I COULD EAT U UP

  23. Daytona Trina says:

    Very upset with Ray J for disrespecting MZ. BERRY the way he did…had much respect for him until I realize LOVE is really not what he was looking for.. he let go of Jaguar and she probably was the most decent women that has ever stepped his BUTTON FACE looking way …I will never watch anything he has to offer in T.V. again.

  24. vbanks...mac-town says:

    Ray i have much love for you. i hv followed your shows rayj one and rayj two. first show wrong pick chardonnay genuinely had feelings for you but you overlooked her feelings bcuz of that lust demon. you say you want someone to keep it one hundred well thats what she did. friendship before anything else will build a love affair but you was blinded by burning passion which led you to rayj2.I thought you had learned from your past but i c u didnt.you let best two women slip past you. The last two that should hv been standing is Mz Berry and Jaguar reason being is Mz Berry is a real woman who knows what she wont and having kids was an “A” plus not anything negative. all that came with mz. berry was a great jump start for your life to get you to the place you desire to be as a man but didnt give her a fair chance just like you didnt give Jaguar a fair chance becuz she didnt have that touchy touchy and kissy kissy spirit hoovering over her like most of the ladies. Her being different from what you was use to should hv kept her till the end. She could hv done everything that mz. berry could hv done but at a much slower pace. Im saying all of that becuz you made me feel like you really wanted to change in season two of rayj. your action showed me that you didnt. Ray im telling you that theirs something special about chardonnay so what ever you do keep her on your team and sweety please dont make another show lol until you can see a change in your lifestyle as an WHOLE especially with women so that you wont throw another one of GODS precious gifts back in his face. much love and be blessed

  25. Liz says:

    Banks (right above my comment) I really agree with every word. I believed Chardonnay was the best choice for Season 1 because she was the most honest (lie detector test proved it) and genuine and approached the entire situation as a real woman would’ve not rushing having fun, being friend oriented first, and most importantly having your best interest at heart. I was shocked when you did her surprise elimination and was hoping you would allow her back on Season 2 when she made that brave offer. That in itself showed her dedication to you after so much time she tried to go the extra mile for you again. My second pick to win once she was eliminated was Cocktail. I almost felt like I thought like you during the show when it came to the things you said and the reason you made your eliminations. As for the rest of Season 2 I agree with a lot of viewers Jaguar was your Lucky Charm for that show. She tried to be herself and get to know you how relationships and friendships that last begin and I respect her (and Chardonnay as well) for that. Once she was eliminated I was indecisive between Platinum and Mz Berry. Platinum was young but very honest and heart felt. Mz Berry seemed to genuinely care but she seemed to needy and emotional and didn’t seem to fit into your world in my opinion. I have been a fan for a very long time and really thought you were genuine about love on both shows and even though the reunion revealed negative things I believe you may have wanted love but got caught up in temptation and even if love is what you want you aren’t always ready for what you want. I know a lot of people slandered your name and are no longer fans but I do not judge people because we all make mistakes and those who do find themselves judging people are quick to point the finger and work their tongues talking about others but are defensive and make excuses when it comes to the truth about themselves. There is always room for change and I believe somewhere in you there is sincerity for love but you have some more soul searching and maturing to work on in that department like many others and that’s just a part of life. Continue to pray and ask for guidance, strength and favor in that area if that really is what you want to put your heart into pursuing right now. I wish you the best of luck Ray.

  26. I know this is really boring and you are skipping to the next comment, but I just wanted to throw you a big thanks – you cleared up some things for me!
