Most famous performers live in a world of constant change; touring when the latest album drops, doing television and radio campaigns that are seemingly endless, and giving interview after interview with members of the press. It’s a hard schedule, an arduous lifestyle, and yet, most performers manage with little complaint. It would seem the price of fame begins with the loss of personal time.
Christina Milian understands this cost all to well. She began producing songs at 17, had a hit record before she was 21 and carries an acting career that continues to keep her racing from the movie set to the studio. Any other person with this exhaustive schedule wouldn’t have time to breathe, yet Milian manages to find time to exhale and focus on the core things in her life including her beautiful 4,200-square-foot San Fernando Valley home.
These days, you’ll find Milian curled up with her new husband producer, Terius Youngdell Nash better known as The-Dream. They are typical newlyweds - perfecting the art of cooking together, enjoying quiet movie nights on the couch and getting ready for the biggest household addition, a baby.
Milian opens up to MHL about her new life, her new beau, and her new baby, proving that, once again, Milian can handle any changes life sends her way. MHL: What type of home is it?
It’s a comfortable family home in the heart of the Valley. The home is always active day and night, which leaves for little quiet moments.
MHL: Did you collaborate with a designer or is it strictly your design aesthetic?
I did it all myself. I find designing pretty easy and I combine designs fairly well, especially since there are so many home magazines like MHL and designer showrooms that give you great ideas.
MHL: Where in the house do you feel the most relaxed and at home?
The kitchen! I love to cook and I like doing it all by myself - just me and the kitchen. I get a little experimental with recipes and ingredients and find I have had great success at being a chef these days!
MHL: How are you and The Dream merging both styles?
We have similar style. We both have an appreciation for a comforting home setting where we can relax and unwind. We want people to feel welcome in our house, not intimidated.
