Rapper Foxy Brown aka Inga Marchand sat down with The NYPost for an update interview. In this interview Brown sets the record straight as far who Inga is and who Foxy is. She also tells The Post that she’s a changed woman. Check out the interview highlights below.
On the difference between Foxy and Inga:
“The Foxy character and Inga Marchand are two different people,” she continues. “My fiancé calls me Inga. No one around me calls me Foxy. I go to church every Sunday. I go to Bible study every Friday night. I’m saved.”
“The mooning thing bothered me more than anything else in the past — because I’m a lady,” says Brown, 31.
“Jay and I are each other’s history,” she says. “We discovered each other, basically. Our first record together was what blew both of us up. We became Bonnie and Clyde.”
“It was 2005 and Jay said to me, ‘You and Naomi are the most misunderstood female celebrities ever. You have to meet,’ ” she recalls. “He set up a meeting in office at Def Jam. We came in, and we’ve been like sisters ever since.”
“Of course I want to release another album,” she says. “It’s not that I’ve been twiddling my thumbs. I’ve had major setbacks.”
“If Lindsay Lohan was black, she would have done two years, at least. Is there no equal standard?”
“I live a different life,” she says. “I’m not at every party; I’m not seen everywhere. That’s why people still care about my brand. I’ve never whored myself out.”
“I’ve never stabbed, hurt, killed, stolen, anything,” she says. “But I went to jail for a year. What is that? My pastor said to me the fact that I’m not living under a bridge as a crazy woman, talking to myself, is amazing.”
