June 4th, 2013 it is! The set date for the release of “Paparazzi Princesses“, a book by Dwayne “Lil Wayne” Carter‘s daughter, Reginae Carter co-authored with her long-time friend, Bria Williams, daughter of Cash Money Records co-founder Bryan “Birdman” Williams aka “Baby”.
The 14-year-olds whose lives have revolved around stardom, media & the exposure and everything bling can rightfully give an insight to the lives of the daughters of pop stars with every filling of trial and triumph.
The book helps you see that even children of celebrities who are “unintentionally famous” are your girl/guy next door as through the characters of Kyla Jones and Promise Walker, it is portrayed how they deal with the everyday teen issues: high school, crushes, homework, fashion and friendship. With a collaboration from author Karyn Langhorne Folan, the book promises to be a relative go to source for teens and young adults, the world over.
Lil Wayne expressed his excitement on the commendable achievement; “I’ve got to be honest. It’s inspiring to see what these girls have done. It wasn’t easy, and they did it all by themselves. ‘Proud’ doesn’t even begin to describe how me and the ‘Birdman’ feel. I can’t wait for everybody else to experience their story.”
Birdman was also keen on it as he told; “There’s no better feeling than watching Bria and Reginae make this dream come true. They took an idea, worked extremely hard, and brought it to life. It’s the kind of story that everybody can feel, and it’s only the start of much bigger things for these two wonderful young ladies.”
Now don’t you just want to see the book already? I’m sure you do! “Paparazzi Princesses” as is rightfully titled is Reginae‘s debut, fun fictional novel that has already begun to receive accolades and recommendations from pop stars like Nicki Minaj who maintained that they “work it!”. She put it this way: “I’m very proud of these two lady bugs! Work it girls!”. They sure are!
“Paparazzi Princesses” is published under Cash Money Content/Atria/Simon & Schuster. Cash Money Content books is the publishing arm of premier record label, Cash Money Records and ‘home’ to platinum recording artists, Nicki Minaj and Drake.
The book truly is a very relative one because asides from the issues mentioned earlier that the characters in the book (who represent Reginae and Carter) deal with, there are also other issues like facing their parents’ high expectations on their journey to becoming their own women. That’s something every teen can relate with.
