Trina may be known as the Diamond Princess (after the title of her sophomore album), but she also loves her pearly whites. “I’m a dental floss freak,” the rapper, born Katrina Laverne Taylor, tells Us Weekly. “I hate the dentist, so I take care of my teeth,” she revealed, which is why she always keep dental floss in her bag. The single Miami native, 37, whose new EscapeX app dropped in August, cleans out her quilted Chanel satchel for Us.
“I like the Blow Pop because it’s a candy, and then it’s gum. I have one when I’m about to go to my show. It makes my tongue red, so when I’m performing, you just see red, and i just love that.”
“At shows, people always hand me CDs or little USBs. Someone will say, ‘Hey! I’m an artist. Listen to my music.’ I usually have a lot of them and once I’m not traveling, I listen to them.”
“The one game I have on my iPhone 6 Plus is Ms. Pac-Man. I loved it as a kid — I always beat my friends. I’m the champ.”
On the Kisser
“My favorite lip gloss, Mally Beauty in Summer Peach, is subtle and flirty. Mally Roncal is a makeup artist who has a line at QVC.”
“I wear Lilly Lashes. Once, I went to the drive-thru teller at the bank, I handed the guy my credit card and my eyelashes were stuck to it! I was so embarrassed.”
