On writing her memoirs:

“A lot of people will write a book and pretend that whatever they are writing about they are done with, and now they are perfect. I’m not perfect. I am just as fucked up. I am who I am, and all of this shit in my life will be a struggle forever…but I’m fine. Well, I’m becoming fine.”

On relationship with her birth father:

“For a long time, my father was dead to me,” she says.  “I didn’t want to justify his actions, but it’s interesting to see what’s behind them,” she says. “The six-year-old in me is still pissed, but I don’t think I am a victim. I don’t want people to shed tears for me. He beat me, but we have all been through shit.”

Rick Ross Rocks the Cover of Rolling Stone, Opens Up About Being Corrections Officer

The Biggest Bawse has landed the cover of the biggest music magazine.  Rick Ross poses shirtless for Rolling Stone under the headline “Gangster of Love.” In the issue, the Maybach Music chief speaks about his seizures (which he partly blames on his weed addiction), support for freedom of speech and the right to bear arms, and his high school days. For the first time, he also opens up about his past as a corrections officer. Read some of the highlights before the issue hits newsstands on August 17.

 On his weed addiction, which contributed to the seizures he had last year: “I’m most definitely an avid user, a pothead, however you want to look at it. I call it green caviar. It’s like a short vacation—it helps me chill out. And people really love it when I chill out, because I can really be a dickhead.”

On his past as a corrections officer, which he describes as an opportunity to “wash my hands” after his best friend was sentenced to 10 years for trafficking cocaine and heroin: “This was my best friend, who I ate peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches with, and pork and beans with, my buddy, my partner, my number-one dude. Suddenly I’m talking to him over federal phone calls. Hearing the way it was building, I knew I couldn’t take nothing for granted,” says Ross. “My homey’s father was a huge influence on my life, too . . . He was the one who was like, ‘Yo, go get a job somewhere, man. Go be a fireman. Or go be a fucking corrections officer. Just go sit down somewhere.”

On his time attending a Christian school: “They wanted me to learn the Ten Commandments. I told them I didn’t really have time for that right now,” recalls Ross, who was an offensive lineman in high school football. “I got through high school on my popularity and shit. … But my grades was never good. I was never good at math.”

On Chick-fil-A’s stance on gay marriage: “Chick-fil-A obviously took their stand. That’s their right—the same way the pro-gay people are taking their stand. I believe everybody got the right to live their own life the way they want to.” But he has no plans to boycott. “Naw. I love that spicy chicken.”
