Lil Mama returned to The Breakfast Club on Tuesday, nearly five years after she broke down in tears on the show. During her sit-down with Angela Yee, Charlamagne, and DJ Envy, she opened up about the reason she cried during her last visit; explaining that it was the first time she talked about her mother with a group of people.
“The reason why I got emotional is because I was talking about my mother, and at the time, I hadn’t came out about how I felt about it. I went through a phase where in that moment, when I came to talk to y’all — that was the first time I ever sat down with a group of people and discussed it. So it was just like…everything.”

She recently dropped a new track titled “She,” that got people talking about her possibly being a lesbian, with lyrics like, “But I ain’t mad ’cause you look good on me too, she look good on me too.” Keyshia addressed it during her sit-down, saying it’s about her: “It’s about self love.” She says that when she and Boobie first split up, she didn’t have anybody to depend on mentally, sexually; “It was just a lot of finding myself, getting back in my own groove.”

I was on that drank heavy too so I can understand that. I didn’t want to go to the studio. I didn’t want to do a lot of things; interviews. Basically anything outside of me making the songs and me getting the girls and stuff like that I didn’t want to do.
