August Alsina is joining reality TV.
During a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, Alsina speaks about joining the cast of ‘The Surreal Life’. The singer opened up about turning down the reality show 10 times before finally saying yes. He explains it turned it down due to his relationship with Jada Pinkett-Smith. “I would say that going into it, that probably was one of the factors for me that I felt like, ‘Hmm, do I really want to do this?’ because I didn’t want to go into a situation where people would grab for low-hanging fruit,” he said.
Alsina says he plays peacemaker on the show. “I guess the mind-blowing part would be the constant having to put out fires in the house type thing amongst people,” August explained. “Somehow, I, you know, was tapped upon to kind of help deal with situations in the house amongst people for situations that I actually wasn’t a part of to even see exactly what happened.”
He also says he has no relationship with Jada Pinkett-Smith, following the infamous entanglement that happened over two years ago. “I can only be responsible for myself. I can only be responsible for my own actions and hold myself accountable for what I do, what I say, and what I know to be true for myself,” he said. “To be honest with you, I’m not necessarily surprised about anybody’s actions these days. Everybody has the right to say, reveal whatever they decide — I’m not the police of that.”
