Bria Williams and Reginae Carter will make their literary debut with the release of “Paparazzi Princesses” on June 4th via Cash Money Content books/Atria/Simon & Schuster.
The 14-year-old daughters of Cash Money Records co-founder Bryan “Birdman” Williams aka “Baby” and Grammy Award-winning rap superstar Dwayne “Lil Wayne” Carter, respectively, teamed up to pen this fictitious narrative of the adventures of two teen girls. The book is available through Cash Money Content books, the publishing arm of premier record label Cash Money Records (home to platinum recording artists Nicki Minaj and Drake).
These young women know the perks and disadvantages of being raised in the spotlight better than anybody, and they fashion their experiences into an engaging and heartfelt narrative. They may have seen what’s behind the curtain at every red carpet event and even backstage, but they’re no different than any other girls their age.
Now, instead of relying on Instagram and Twitter as most of their peers do, their story is told in their new novel “Paparazzi Princess” through the characters of Kyla Jones and Promise Walker. On their journey to becoming their own women, the novel’s main characters face their parent’s high expectations, the pitfalls of being “unintentionally famous,” and, most crucially, the trials and tribulations of high school, homework, crushes, and friendship that everyone goes through. A collaboration with author Karyn Langhorne Folan, it’s bound to be a page-turner for teens and young adults everywhere.
About “Paparazzi Princesses,” Birdman proudly exclaims, “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.”
Lil Wayne echoes his excitement, “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.”
