You can now officially stream Monica’s new Apple Radio Show – MoTalk!
On the premiere episode featuring Shaquille O’Neal, Monica opens up about the narrative behind “The Boy Is Mine” while Shaq shares his favorite records, talks philanthropy, describes how to treat the “perfect woman,” and how he considers his ex-wife, Shaunie, to be that.
“I’ve realized over the years that some people actually believed the record was true, shout out to Brandy, one of the greatest voices of our time, mine and Brandy’s taste are complete polar opposites, so there was never really a boy for this song to be over,” Monica explained. “People believed there was a lot of history prior but there was not. A lot of the narrative that you saw was formulated based on the song and then it spewed into our real lives, but it never existed prior to.”
Although Shaunie has since remarried, the retired NBA star expressed, “Shaunie was also a perfect one and I messed it up. We were young and I was just doing dumb stuff […] Shaunie’s married. I’m happy for her. I hope this gentleman treats her the way she’s supposed to be treated, and I’m going to still love her and she’s still my wife. I will always protect, provide, and love for her, married or not.”
