Read 5 quotes from Yung Miami’s cover story with The Cut below.
The 29-year-old rapper, actress, talk show host, and entrepreneur revealed that the biggest adjustment to fame has been sacrificing her privacy.
The privacy part. I feel like it’s a gift and a curse. It’s bittersweet.
No matter what you do, you can never please. You gotta be strong, because with the fame comes a lot of attention, a lot of opinions, a lot of backlash.
I have no privacy.
You could be going through a death, and you still got people that’s laughing about it or joking about it.
I feel like I can’t even express myself. I used to go live [on Instagram] all the time and say whatever.
Now, I can’t go live and just be drunk. They make something out of nothing. It’s kind of frustrating.
Yeah, I would say I’m very aware. Sometimes, I just don’t give a f**k.
But then a lot of times, I don’t even want to deal with it. I don’t want to have to clear nothing up or say, Oh, I didn’t mean it like that.
So now I’m just more chill, calm, collected, and very aware of my surroundings.
When you’re a public figure, you gotta move a certain way.
Yung Miami admitted she wants to change the way she talks.
I think it’s so funny and crazy that you said it is, because I really want to change the way I talk.
I just feel like it’s my accent. It’s growing up in Miami, it’s my slang. I talk like my mom.
A lot of people don’t understand it, and they take it as being, like, illiterate or not being able to talk properly.
I always think about it. I’ll be like, I’m gonna do it, but I never followed through. I can’t disguise my voice even if I wanted to.
Caresha shared why her role on “BMF” as Deanna Washington was so hard for her.
It was hard for me because the BMF scene, it was so emotional — like my [character’s] husband got killed and, in real life, my baby father got killed.
I always say I never got a chance to go through the emotion of my baby father getting killed and feel he’s gone because I was always working, which was a good thing because it kept my mind off of it.
It was good and bad. If not, I don’t know where it would have took me.
You know how some people go into a deep depression? I thank God I was able to keep working because I’ve got kids.
I felt it, of course, but I didn’t have a breakdown until after the fact.
When I did break down, it was bad. It was horrible.
When BMF came out. I wasn’t embarrassed, but I was like, Oh my God, everybody’s laughing at me!
It’s okay, I laughed too. I don’t take nothing personally. I don’t give a f**k, whatever.
I find laughter in everything. Like b**ch, I’m gonna laugh with y’all, we’re gonna laugh together.
Yung Miami also discussed her very public relationship with Diddy.
I felt like, it is what it is. Eventually, people was gonna find out because he is who he is, I am who I am.
We was just like, if we’re going to put it out there, we’re going to be the ones that talk.
I don’t like anyone talking for me.
She also confirmed that they are no longer together.
We’re still friends! We’re still good friends! But we’re single.
That’s not my man. We had our own situation, I’m not gonna put a title on it.
We were f**king with each other hard.
We were together every day at one point. He supported me, I supported him.
I’ll let the internet call it whatever they want to call it.
Yung Miami is considering writing a memoir.
I’ve been thinking about it. If I ever wrote a book, I feel like I could sell a million copies.
