Cassie just wants to be the wifey. Is that too much to ask for a gorgeous model/ singer/ Kanye West video co-star? Apparently so.
"It could go a bunch of different ways," she said earlier this week in L.A. on the set of her video for "Official Girl." Chris Robinson directed and the million-selling Lil Wayne guest-stars on the record, which was produced by Danjahandz. "For me, it meant being with somebody, but not really being with them and wanting their confirmation and wanting them to say it out loud: 'I want to be your official girl.'
"I've had a past experience with it," she continued. "You get through it, but it's sort of challenging when you're in that matrix and trying to figure things out. Then you realize at the end if the person wants to be with you, and it's about how you feel and how you want it to be. So, unfortunately, that situation didn't work out [for me]. But yes, I've been through it, and it happens to a lot of people. So I was happy to be a part of the song."
In the video, Cass says, her choreography is at a whole new level. "I've never seen myself dance like this before," she said.
"It's a series of things," she added about the clip's plot. "You kind of catch me in a crazy-girl stage. It's about the fly chick, she's going into the hotel, feeling out her situation, talking to the guy who she thinks is there, but it's really not. You have to see it. It's hard to explain."
Cassie said she couldn't take any credit for Weezy F. Baby's cameo in the song and video — all the credit goes to Sean Combs.
"Puff surprised me with it," the singer said of Wayne's verse. "He laid the verse. I had no idea. I got on the phone and said, 'Thank you.' It's great. With how he's doing now ... he's platinum today, and he decided on his platinum day to be here with me. It's great. He's one of the best rappers out right now."
Cassie's sophomore LP should arrive by September. It features production by Bryan Michael Cox, 7 Aurelius, Diddy, Mario Winans, Eric Hudson and Kanye West. Wayne is the only confirmed guest star.
