Ray J Becomes New Trojan Man

Posted By on June 4, 2007

Ray J's recent ascent into adult film industry popularity has spawned an offer from Trojan to promote its select brand of condoms.

According to the Associated Press the R&B singer was enlisted to sponsor Trojan after his sex tape, with millionaire heiress and socialite Kim Kardashian, went public and was eventually distributed by Vivid Entertainment.

"At this moment you can either sit back and watch everything just go or you can capitalize and come up with a way to make $20 million a year," says Ray J.

Ray J's business ventures won't end with his new Trojan deal. "I'm sponsoring a new drink that kind of stimulates you, like liquid Ecstasy, but over-the-counter."

In related news, Ray J's new sex symbol image has backfired, causing executives from a new Tyler Perry film to reconsider his role in their upcoming movie.

"I felt like I shouldn't have had to audition because I'd worked with the casting director on a few movies," Ray J recalls. "But I did it for him. We were going through this whole thing and I was just like, 'I've got the part.' Then they called me and asked me, 'Yo, what's up with the sex tape? We know about it.' Then they called me back and said, 'Well, Yolanda Adams is in the movie and this is gospel and we just can't do it.'"

Ray J further explains his actions and sheds light on his recent high profile relationships with Whitney Houston, Karrine "Superhead" Steffans and Kardashian in the June issue of Sister 2 Sister magazine, on newsstands now.
