Rosie Perez stopped by the Angie Martinez Show today to discuss her new book Handbook For An Unpredictable Life, and to speak about her life and experiences with Angie Martinez and DJ Enuff.
The book was written completely by her as she wanted to give an intimate vibe to the book, and “wanted it to make it point, to serve a purpose.”
“I really wanted my point of view,” she said. “To be clear and not compromised. I wanted them to feel like they were at my house on my couch.”
She also discussed her “beef” with Kanye West, where she did admit that she wasn’t necessarily mad at the rapper for mentioning her in his song “Good Morning,” from the album Graduation.
“I wasn’t pissed off at Kanye. I was pissed off at the responses I would get in the hallways when i would walk through these schools. Secretly I was flattered”
As for any beef with anyone else. She stated that those instances have either gone away, or have been resolved throughout the years. Especially the highly publicized beef between herself and Jennifer Lopez. To that, she isn’t happy about the media attention around that.
“It disgusted me how they pitted to latin women against each other. How they manipulated and took things out of contest to make it think it was current.”
As for her journey, she made a vision quest that included happiness, stability, and love. She wants people to know she had achieved that.
She has a book signing and talk on Monday, March 3 at 7pm at Strand Bookstore in New York City. You can grab up her new book now in bookstores and online.
