Karrueche Tran

Fashion Designer, Model, Aspiring Actress, R&B star Chris Brown’s Girlfriend

Where?

On vacay at Terra Nova All-Suite Hotel, Kingston

'Jamaica' Me Crazy.

It’s my first time here. I love the food and hot weather. I love ackee and salt fish, which I grew up eating. Yesterday, I had beef patties and coco bread which were really good. We are going on a yacht to Maiden Cay today, and I’m really excited.

On boyfriend Chris Brown’s recent Twitter post that he’s ready to start a family.

Not yet. I do care about and love him. Eventually down the line that could be possible. I would want three kids at the most, depending on how things go, we’ll see. But right now, I want to focus on my career and getting myself together.

On being black and Vietnamese.

I identify with both ethnicities. I don’t like to identify with just one because that’s really not fair; I am both. I eat lots of Asian food and I still embrace a lot of my black culture, as well. I grew up in a Jamaican household, my godmother is Jamaican, so I grew up with flavourful, tasty food.

The latest with her design line The Kill.

I had a few complications with The Kill on the business back end, so it’s been on hold. I recently had a release with Pac Sun and did a collaboration with the LA-based photographer Van Styles. We came together and did a limited-edition tee-shirt line for the Fourth of July. They ordered some crew necks for the fall. With The Kill, I’m still going to keep that on hold, but we might be doing something else with Pac Sun and have a few ventures that might be coming up.

Why fashion designing?

I’ve always had a love for fashion. I always work with, or design things that are similar to my own fashion. My style is a mix of high-fashion and streetwear, so I have designer shoes but I like baggy shorts that I can dress up, or Jordans and high heels. I like to mix and match.

Tattoo Love.

I have eight tattoos. I first started off just getting scripture, and then I ventured off into different things. My last one was a dragon tattoo on my hand. I’ve been thinking of getting a new one, but I don’t know yet.

We saw you co-host BET’s 106 and Park just last week. Any plans to add TV to your résumé?

I enjoyed hosting; it was fun and my first time hosting on TV for 106. I would definitely take the opportunity to explore more. I am open to it.

The Michael Brown shooting in Missouri is dominating headlines in the States. Your take?

For me, it was a tragic incident. He was innocently killed under the circumstances, and it’s very unfortunate what’s going on. There is a lot of protesting going on and I’m glad that the people are standing up for themselves and what they believe in, and they are doing the right thing by taking a stance. It’s crazy that in this day and age, we are still living like we are in the old days of segregation and I think we are so far ahead in our culture that things should not be that way. People like me who are biracial, and there are so many more children who are like me. I hope Brown’s family gets justice.

Ever experienced racism in your own life?

Nothing too crazy. I wasn’t bullied, but it was kind of hard to identify with a certain type of race. For black girls, I was was the one with the light skin and my hair was too straight, so growing up I gravitated towards the Asians, because I could not connect with my black side. But as I got older, I embraced both my ethnic heritages.

Secrets to great skin.

I always take care of my skin. I drink water all the time. I make sure, before I go to sleep, I take my make-up off. I moisturise. I swear by Kiehl’s. I use all their products.

What’s next for Karrueche?

More modelling, more hosting, more travelling and I have taken on acting. I have been working with an acting coach in Los Angeles and I recently signed with an agency for television and film to get on the ball with auditions and getting me out there. Acting is a lot of background work, so you have to bring your mind there and bring forth a performance.

Dream co-star?

Halle Berry. She’s a classic actress who is not only beautiful inside and outside, but she delivers with her acting performances. That’s somebody I strive to be because I want to be able to not just be a face, but be able for people to say ‘wow, she can actually act.’

Eleanor Bumpurs

Eleanor Bumpurs was one of the first victims of Police Brutality I can remember. My family was living in the Bronx at the time near her housing projects. Her killing was the talk of the neighborhood for years. In 1984, NYPD tried to evict her because she was four months behind on her rent of $98.65, she resisted, and was summarily shot twice with a 12 gauge shotgun.

Ms. Bumpurs was failed by the city in every way imaginable. She was failed by a social services system that could have granted her rental assistance but did not. She was failed by the mental health community which should have treated her mental illness properly but did not. And she was failed by a police force that was well aware of her conditions, knew she was a senior citizen and chose to barge into her apartment with a shotgun and riot shields.

No one was convicted of killing Ms. Bumpurs. A few people lost jobs but by the time Rudolph Giuliani took office as mayor her death was a distant memory.

I’ve been thinking about Ms. Bumpurs a great deal the last few days.

I wonder what her family thinks about the events of the day. I wonder what they would say about the killing of young black men and women like Trayvon Martin, Renisha McBride, Ramarley Graham, Sean Bell, Mike Brown, Eric Garner and so many others. I cannot say for sure, but if I had a guess, it would be that not much has changed since the murder of Ms. Bumpurs…not much at all.

RIP Ms. Eleanor Bumpers

AvaLynn was attacked by another student on the school playground. We are fighting for answers and for greater supervision at school.

My friend Lacey Harris’s 5 year old daughter was brutalized by another child on the playground at school this week, in Pascagoula, Mississippi. Her face is swollen and bruised beyond recognition, and the only thing the school can tell her is that they “are investigating”

This sweet little 5 year old girl is terrified to return to school. She is in pain and she has been MAIMED. This needs IMMEDIATE media attention. The school and local news are ignoring the mother’s and loved ones’ cries for help. This family needs justice for what has been done to their poor little angel, and not just to be swept under the rug, as the school district is attempting to do. PLEASE shine some light on this situation and force school administration and news media to get some answers!

The mother has started a GoFundMe page to request help for paying medical bills and legal fees, as it looks as though she’s going to have to pursue this route in order to get any justice at all for her little girl. Please, please, share this link on your page. Even if people are unable to donate, please just help us get the word out on what is going on with this poor family.

This is really heartbroken for me and extremely hard to look at.

This is the link to Ava’s donation page.
Please donate and share and PRAY!
God bless you all!
