R&B singer Tameka "Tiny" Cottle recently talked about her fiancee T.I.'s return to his hometown of Atlanta, Georgia after being incarcerated upstate.
In addition to talking about T.I.'s morning studio sessions, Tiny also discussed her attraction to "tough" men.
"Honestly I've always been into the bad boy - I can't lie," she revealed in an interview. "Something about the bad boy just attracts me, just gets my attention you know? There are some good guys that I can think of now that can be sexy, now that I'm older. But when I was younger, it would always be the bad boy...In the daytime [T.I.'s] working a lot in the studio, and most of my time is spent staying where he is and then we come home together. [A homecoming celebration?] Not yet but we are planning it...In the future I'm trying to work on getting the OMG Girlz album out and trying to get them a show. I have an idea for a show, maybe a cartoon. Also, working on a movie that me and Tisha gave them, that's my partner. We have the Major P productions and we are trying to expand with a production company and also this movie that we wrote." (Honey Mag)
She recently confirmed that a wedding with T.I. would likely take place in 2010.
"There are wedding plans coming soon, sometime this year," she said in an interview. "Not too big 'cause I want it to be as private as possible. There've been a million rumors about us getting married. It's taking away from the day that we really do get married so I just want to kind of have that moment for myself. I don't really worry about what people say about what's taking so long. like, it ain't none of your business what's taking so long. If we happy, why are you so concerned? We living, we're happy, we're in love. I mean, it's no doubt in my mind that he doesn't love every piece of me and vice versa so we're just doing what's comfortable and what works for us. Tiny and T.I.: Not for the world. When we get ready to make a move, we will make it. We just can't do it for everybody." (VIBE)
Last November, Tiny said a wedding would be scheduled for this year.
"Sometime [next] year, but we can't really give a date yet because we have to find out exactly when Tip is coming home," Tiny revealed in an interview. "We'll have to just plan around that, but I envision a fairy tale wedding. [As far as music together,] well, we did one song and we just never really got back in the studio, but I can't say that you won't hear anything in the future. I don't want to give it out yet, I want to hold it to make sure we go in that direction. We have several things that we're talking about doing together, so we'll see how that works out." (XXL Mag)
T.I. is scheduled to be a free man later this week.
The rapper announced new single "I'm Back" through a promotional Twitter account, and his lawyer confirmed to MTV News on Thursday (March 4) that Tip will be released from prison later this month. Federal Bureau of Prison records list the rapper's release date as March 26. "That date is correct," lawyer Steve Sadow said via e-mail. "T.I. is now serving the remainder of his sentence in home confinement under the supervision of the U.S. Bureau of Prisons." (MTV)
