Marsai Martin Cares About Her ‘Rich Black Business’, Not Online Criticism
Marsai Martin miss her “Young, rich, business black.” She’s not worried about thoughts on social media despite a lot of comments about her getting noticed in Rihanna’s Savage X Fenty episode 4 recital.
The Genius production the founders visit Ebro in the morning with Kelly Rowland in the press run for Great ball game. The upcoming film is another win for Marsai’s production and cast. Marsai plays Callie Coleman, the daughter of Keisha Coleman (Kelly) and Bobby Coleman (Omari Hardwick). Her character learns that she can magically control her father’s movements on the NFL field.
At one point in the interview, the hosts pointed to the viral conversation about the 18-year-old modeling a printed jumpsuit from Rih’s activewear collection. Marsai for the faint moment “really” and then say, “I don’t really care,” before explaining why.
“Honestly, like all of us, we only care about our young, rich and Black business,” says Marsai. “Outside opinion doesn’t really matter to me when I know my path, I know my opportunities and my possibilities. And I know I would never put myself in a position of failure, for any exposure of any kind.”
Like her new movie, Marsai says she has real-life parents who always support her – as evidenced by how she earned her way in the entertainment industry at the age of 5.
“I have given nothing but grace in any of these. I have wonderful parents who are always by my side and always protect me,” Marsai said.
Marsai understands viral talk but says, “That’s just what happens”
Everyone is talking about Marsai’s transition from child star to young bada**. And although Marsai says she “will expect” reactions, she insists it’s just another part of life.
“You want to watch someone mature, you have some form of protection for them. It’s like you need to protect them from something, but at the moment everyone is just looking at me as an adult, and that’s not going to happen,” Marsai said. “Like how will they act when I start to grow up, have kids and get married?”
As for working in Rihanna’s world, Marsai says the experience is “great, lots of fun” with “crazy” work time. She revealed that she had to arrive at the studio at 19:30 and didn’t get home until 8 a.m. the next morning.
At one point in the interview, she talked about what keeps her going and being creative. The most important thing, she said, is to “have fun”.
“My parents always told me that, when it’s no longer interesting to you, you can stop. You’re young, you can go to different places,” Martin said. “You can go to college right now. You can find different things to do. You don’t have to do this if it’s no longer interesting to you if it doesn’t make you happy.”
However, Marsai likes his way. Any sense of missing out seems to no longer linger with the star. At this point in her young career, she says, she can create any experience she desires. And it’s a privilege she appreciates.
“I’m so grateful for the space I’m in, I’m so grateful for that..Even though I grew up with adults rather than real kids, I believe that’s where I am and what I am. it shaped me into who I am today,” Marsai said. “I think at this point, I’m just happy to have the opportunity to do my own stuff that way. Like if I want to have a prom, I can have a prom, or like I can have a prom.”
The world includes Marsai’s activewear and lingerie fashion shows.
