Lauren London Talks Celebrity Status and Brief Engagement to Lil Wayne

Lauren London has managed to maintain a surprisingly low profile since giving birth to Lil Wayne’s son, Cameron.  In an exclusive interview with Kathleen Cross and Skin Deep, Lauren clears the rumors and talks about a wide array of subjects from motherhood to being a “celebrity” to how she met Lil Wayne.

Interview Highlights:

KC: The desire to attain “celebrity status” has driven many young people to pursue the elusive dream of stardom. Is that what made you want to be an actress?

LL: I wish that was the case, because I’d be able to handle the attention a little better. No. I was an only child who spent a lot of time alone. Movies kept me company from a very young age, and starting from about seven years old, I wrote little plays and acted out all the parts by myself in my bedroom. I can’t remember a time when I didn’t want to be an actor. It’s crazy though, because I’m such a private person. I was never interested in becoming famous. I still struggle with that aspect of my work.

KC: Doesn’t every celebrity say that after they become famous? “I love my craft, but I wish I could just have a normal life.”

LL: (laughs) I’m not complaining and I’m not that famous. I do get recognized, but I’m not being hounded by paparazzi every day. I’m human, so of course I like getting special treatment at times. But deep down that girl from the neighborhood  is still in here. She  might shy away from having her picture taken, and would rather blend in with the scenery sometimes  and just observe.

KC: What is the biggest misperception people have of you? What misperception bothers you most?

LL: That my son is the result of some kind of one night stand or groupie encounter with his father. I struggle with deciding when to answer or ignore the constant speculation about my private life, because I feel like that doesn’t belong to anybody but me.

KC: Do you want to go on to the next question, or clear up the speculation now?

LL: I met Dwayne when I was 15 years old. I’ve known him a very long time, and we were in a relationship that didn’t make it. We tried more than once to revive it, and we were engaged briefly years ago, but we eventually parted ways. People see the “Lil’ Wayne” persona and think they know who he really is. My son’s father is an intelligent, loving and lovable person who will always be a dear friend. That is all.

Love her.  This interview is definitely diva behavior.  Kathleen will be posting part two of the interview soon, which has more “playful” questions.  Read the rest of part one here.
