It’s Kat Stacks B-tch! Aren’t we glad that is a thing of the past.
Two years ago, a Miami chick by the name of Kat Stacks shook up the game when she came onto the scene blogging and making videos about all of the rappers she slept with while throwing names around like Bow Wow, Nelly, Soulja Boy, Fabolous, Lil Twist and more. Her shenanigans resulted in twitter beefs with Chris Brown, Carmelo Anthony and The Game, while she bragged about rappers courting her and sexing people up for money. Her quick internet fame got her mentioned on radio stations across the nation, the BET Hip Hop Awards and all over blogs for months before she was arrested and thrown in jail after a few club promoters set her up after a failed club appearance.
Now that she’s been in jail since November 2010, she claims that she has had some time to think things over and has changed her evil ways. She caught up with XXLMag.com recently and told them she’s let go of the ‘Kat Stacks’ persona and is hoping that she is given a second chance so that she can help young girls that are in her shoes. She also admits that she set Soulja Boy up by circulating a video that showed ‘cocaine’ in his hotel room and it was actually just crushed advil. Sounds like someone is dealing with Karma!
Peep the excerpts:
On her deportation case
Well, I was going to the court for immigration and they had changed my court date to two days earlier without notifying me or my lawyer. So, they put that I didn’t show and put out a warrant for deportation [to Venezuela]. But once I told them that they didn’t notify me, they re-opened my case again. By the time they did that, I got apprehended at the airport in Nashville and they took me to the cell detention facility in Louisiana. They didn’t give me a bond, so I had to fight my case there. The judge didn’t like my Kat Stacks persona. He didn’t like it at all. That’s the reason he told me that I’m not allowed to stay in the country, even though I showed him evidence of underage sex trafficking and domestic violence. That’s violating my freedom of speech and press rights. Now, I have to stay here and fight them back.
On Changing Her Twitter Handle
I decided to let the whole Kat Stacks name go, so when I’m outside, it’s not, “It’s Kat Stacks, b—h!” I wanted to come outside and be different. I left it at that @AdmireAndrea and I told the judge that I’m gonna let go of the Kat Stacks thing, but he didn’t listen.
On what she’s missed since she’s been in jail
I haven’t even see my son walk for the first time or talk for the first time or anything. The only time I see him is behind bulletproof glass every two to three weeks. It’s hard seeing my son out there. He thinks my mother is his mother. The judge is heartless. He knows that and doesn’t care. He just wants to judge me for the WorldStar videos. I told them I’m not going to do that anymore. I told them I changed and I want to be a mother. I never finished the seventh grade. I asked them to give me a second chance to make my life right. I came to jail when I was 20 years [old]. I told them I changed, I go to weekly therapy, I take my medication, I go to bible study. I told them I’m trying to do right. I even had a woman from a sex trafficking organization tell me that I could join the organization when I get out of here and get the help that I need to be a better person. He just doesn’t want to listen. He doesn’t care about evidence or anything.
On Being a Different – Then vs. Now
Well, back then, just like my psychologist said…I suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder because of what happened in my childhood and that’s what started the whole Kat Stacks character. Now, that my head is right and I know better now, things have changed. I was young then. Everybody deserves a second chance and the government won’t give it to me. It’s not right. People will see a different side now. If they’re going to persecute me for being Kat Stacks then they should persecute rappers for their lyrics and what they do in the videos.
On What She Wants to Do With Her Life If She’s Able to Get Out of Jail
First of all, I want to finish my education. I have never finished the seventh grade. I want to get my GED. I want to get my record expunged, so I can work social work to help younger people who were in my shoes. I want to do that and go in a positive lane and leave all the rappers and drinking and going nuts alone. Just be better and show people that people can change.
On The Soulja Boy Video Where She Said He Was Snorting Cocaine [and it may have eventually killed his career]
The real story from that day is we got together—again, because we were seeing each other on the low…we had a low-down relationship—and that day, he pissed me off. I was drunk, he was drunk too. He left me stranded alone at the hotel and when I kept texting and calling him, he didn’t answer. He just texted me a ticket number to the airport. I was pissed. So, I called my friend to take me to the airport, but he came with his boys and ordered room service and all got drunk. I had a headache because when I was on the plane on the way there, I drank a lot and threw up, so I had ordered Advil for room service. So, there were Advil pills there, sitting around. My phone had died and I had bent down to charge it and the laptop fell on the floor. My boy was like, “What you doing, coke up in here?” When I went to go look, the laptop had crushed up the pills. That’s when the boys got the coke idea to set it up. They set up the scenes and I didn’t care because I was already mad at Soulja Boy. But when I did the video, I didn’t know it was going to be that big. I apologized, but I didn’t know how to make things right again. I felt really bad. I got in contact with him again and he told me to tell the truth. I went on my Twitter and told everyone the truth, but he did everything in his power to hurt me, so I just let him go. I don’t need to deal with that stuff.
This Kat Stacks situation is definitely proof that short term fame doesn’t lead to long term benefits. Being thrown in jail for almost two years is definitely not winning.
In case you need a flashback:
