Reginae Carter is certainly on the move. The 16-year-old recently starred in her own episode of ‘My Super Sweet 16,’ and re-launched her ‘Shut Up’ brand, which seeks to spread positive vibes throughout the fashion industry and the world. Even though she is busy, Miss Carter recently sat down with PYNK to talk about her life as a young entrepreneur. Check out what she had to say below!
On re-launching her ‘Shut Up’ brand:
“I wanted to silence all of the negativity. There is a lot of negativity and rumors going around about everybody. I go through it as well. I have [people]saying bad things about me under my comments or on the blogs and I feel I just want everyone to know that it’s normal for people to go through it. So that’s why I decided to add fashion into it.”
Reginae’s experience with cyber bullying:
“I don’t allow anyone to make me feel uncomfortable enough to feel like I have to react. I’ve never been bullied [in person]but I [do experience]the blogs and all the rumors about my parents; people bashing me. I get that a lot. People tell me that I’m fat. I’m ugly. I’m only something because of my father or because of my mother. Just all negativity.”
Who she would like to see rocking ‘Shut Up’ gear:
“Well my clothing line is for boys and girls. I would love to see Chris Brown in it. I feel like he would rock it. And Beyoncé; that would be a good look. I’d probably give it to the First Lady and Obama [laughs]. I mean, it’s no bullying and Michelle Obama has a lot of campaigns like that.”
Reginae’s other style effort called ServedFresh:
“I chose to re-launch with ServedFresh, because I see their work. They’re very popular, and the people themselves are so sweet and very humble. With Served Fresh, I feel like they have a whole bunch of style and designs that I really love and they’re very creative and I just love them.”
Her future plans for the brands:
“I want to eventually start [incorporating]glasses, jeans and probably sweat suits. I want to go bigger and maybe just put the little logo on something and make something different [like]cardigans or something like that. I definitely I want to go bigger.”
