Lil Wayne‘s daughter Reginae Carter says her dad didn’t put up a fight about her sexy Savage x Fenty campaign — but couldn’t say the same about her mom, Antonia “Toya” Johnson.
The 21-year-old, who became an official ambassador for Rihanna‘s lingerie line in January, told Page Six Style that her parents have opposing views on her latest project. “When I first posted my mom was like, ‘Okay, don’t get too lively with the lingerie,’” Carter recalled.
“My daddy never really mentioned it. I don’t know what he thinks about it, but my mom is like, ‘Right now, don’t take no more clothes off.’”
The “T.I. & Tiny: Friends and Family Hustle” star added that she wasn’t always comfortable stripping down for the camera. “When I first started out I wasn’t really the type to show thongs [and be] sexy and stuff. When I was picking out my options, I was trying to get PJs — but Rihanna’s team was like, ‘No, send her sexy.’”
And considering she’s a superfan of the pop icon and fashion mogul, it’s no surprise Carter was happy to oblige.
“I don’t cry over nobody; Rihanna is the only person I ever cried over when she performs,” she told us. “I just love her. I hit her up after she did the Diamond Ball and I was like, ‘Okay, now you got to let me come next time,’ and she was like, ‘I got you girl.’ And not too far after that, they hit me up to be an ambassador.”
Continued Carter, “Meeting Rihanna is like going outside after being in quarantine for three months. She smells really good. Every time I see Rihanna she gives me hugs. She’s so cool and down to earth. Her whole persona is so sweet and humbling and very welcoming.”
As for how the reality star preps for her skin-baring shoots? “If I see a little bulge I’m going to do a three-day detox and drink water and eat fruits and veggies,” she told us. “When I go out to eat, I do push the macaroni and cheese away. I try to balance the whole full thing because I’m short already, so I have to get myself together. I don’t want to be too thick.”
