Remember waaay back in the day, back in the ’90s, when Monica and Brandy were rival pop stars with the hit song ‘The Boy is Mine’? Monica was asked about it during an interview: she’s promoting her new album, ‘Code Red,’ which will drop on Friday!
People are still asking, ‘Who got the boy?,’ and there was no boy! We played up the dramatics of it all, but we were 16 and 17! There was no boy, no beef.”
There was no boy? OMG: that just ended twenty years of speculation- LOL.
Monica explained how the whole “feud” between Brandy and herself began.
It started off as brilliant marketing, and people started creating these skits, and then our fans divided, and it became this real thing. But now as us being adults, it doesn’t exist. Brandy makes amazing music, so why would I tell a fan of mine that you can’t support her? It’s really frustrating. I am a huge supporter of everyone in the business, especially her.”
And get this: Monica and Brandy are friends today!
We know that as differently as we are, there’s room for both of us. I absolutely wish the best for her, because I know what that journey is like. I know what that life is like.”
They did share a unique experience: it’s great that they were able to “rise above” all the drama and become friends! Watch Monica talk about it with the Huffington Post below:
