Ray J is back on TV hosting Oxygen’s Bad Girls All Star Battle, the network’s newest incarnation of Bad Girls Club.
The show stars 14 of the most memorable Bad Girls under one roof competing for $100,000 and the title of “Baddest Bad Girl of All Time.”
During an interview with theGrio’s Chris Witherspoon, Ray talked about his role as host of Bad Girls All Star Battle and opened up about his controversial new song, “I Hit It First.”
“When me and my friends did the song I was just kinda joking around, and then it kinda got out and now it has a mind of its own,” Ray J explained.
In several recent interviews, the 32-year-old singer refused to confirm that “I Hit It First” is about his ex-girlfriend Kim Kardashian, even after releasing the video for his single which prominently features a Kim look-a-like. But Ray J now says although he didn’t confirm the song was about Kim, he never denied it either.
“I never denied who the song was about… For people that care this much about who the song is about, it’s cool to me,” Ray J said. “The promotion behind this song, it’s not to bash nobody, it’s not to disrespect nobody. This is what we do. This is how we live. I’m just explaining to you a concept of real life.”
Although lyrics to “I Hit It First” include:
“She might move on to rappers and ballplayers, but we all know I hit it first.”
“Wherever she goes, she knows she belongs in my bed.”
Ray J is adamant that he is not envious of Kim’s relationship with Kanye West.
“Nah…nah. I’m not even focused on that,” he said.
When asked to weigh in on Kanye’s new songs “Black Skinhead” and “New Slaves,” Ray J confessed that he hasn’t heard them yet, but revealed that he’s a huge Kanye fan.
“Nah, haven’t heard it yet; big fan though… huge fan.”
Fans of Ray J can tune into Bad Girls All Star Battle Tuesdays on Oxygen at 8/7C.
