Reginae Carter & Bria Williams Chat About Their Fathers, Debut Novel & More

Lil Wayne’s teenage daughter Reginae Carter, who is also signed to Young Money, and Birdman’s teenage daughter Bria Williams both collaborated on a book titled Paparazzi Princesses that will be released soon on Cash Money Content. In their debut novel, the girls will share what it is like to grow up with a celebrity father and dealing with the paparazzi.

Teen Vogue recently caught up with Reginae and Bria and interviewed them about their upcoming debut book, their forthcoming clothing line titled YMCMP (Young Money Cash Money Princess), what it is like growing up in the spotlight with a music mogul as your father, school, which music artists they listen to, and plenty more.

You can read the interview after the jump below.

How long have you two known each other?
Bria Williams: Since we were babies! And she’s my godsister, so we’re really close.

How did you decide to write a book based on your lives?
BW: My dad said we should write a book. He just threw the idea out, but then Reginae and I really wanted to do it.
Reginae Carter: We always say, “Oh my gosh, if someone could just look in on our lives…” People think it would be so cool to be a celebrity’s kid, but it has its ups and downs. Me and Bria have been introduced to the paparazzi and awards shows since we were so little. One day, we said, “Everybody thinks it’s just so perfect, but maybe we should tell them how it is.” Instead of them just looking at us, they can come into our lives. We feel like not a lot of kids read nowadays, with social media and everything, so we’re hoping to put the fun back into reading.

What is it like to have a hip-hop star for a dad?
RC: There are some major advantages. Just the fact that you can go to awards shows and meet people in the industry that you look up to. Red carpets are so fun!
BW: It’s cool, because I see my dad on stage performing, and it’s like, “Wow, that’s my dad.”
RC: I am a big, huge fan of Rihanna and I met her a couple of weeks ago at her concert, and then she followed me on Instagram! She’s so cool. I love her.

What’s school like for you?
BW: School is fun, but the part I don’t like is waking up for it!
RC: I just graduated from eighth grade! My old school was very small, so it wasn’t a big deal. Not everybody tripped as much about my dad. And in my new school, a lot of people are like me, so it won’t be a problem.

What do your dads think of the book?
RC: I’m not sure if he’s read it yet, but he’s very proud of me and Bria.
BW: He’s super super excited. He read it!

What was it like to write a novel at such young ages?
BW: It was… long. It was hard! It’s fiction, so we had to come up with drama—but it is based on drama in our lives, too.

Would you want to write another book in the future?
BW: We might write another one if this one does well, but we’re also busy working on a clothing line too. It’s called YMCMP, which stands for Young Money Cash Money Princess, and they’re sweatshirts, jackets, socks—everything.

What music do you like listening to?
BW: I like Rihanna, Drake, Chris Brown, I like…there are so many things I like!
RC: I love pop, I love rap. I like some Christian music. And hip-hop! I don’t discriminate with music.

What are you up to this summer?
BW: Wayne’s going on tour, so we might catch that concert. My dad’s going with him, so I might get to tag along a little bit.
RC: I have the book tour, and I’m working on music, too. I’m in a duo with my friend—I sing, and she raps. We’ve been in the studio, and we should have an album out sometime this summer, but we’re not sure. We are going to be leaking something in June for Father’s Day!
