Parade: Would you ever want your 7-year-old daughter, Sy’rai, to get into the entertainment business?

Brandy: “If that was something that she really wanted to do — like the way I was passionate about it when I was her age — then of course I would support her completely. But if it were my choice, I’d keep her out of it as long as I could.”

Parade: She never is never featured on the show, right?

Brandy: “No, she’s not. That’s strictly because her father and I felt it was best for her to have as much of a normal life as possible. Of course, you’ve seen her on one episode on ‘For the Love of Ray J,’ but it wasn’t every day. You didn’t see her going to school, me combing her hair, or any aspect of our private, intimate moments, which sort of sucks because our relationship is so beautiful. I love being a mom and I’m raising her in a different way than how I was raised. Some things that my mom did with me, I do with my daughter — it’s just a different dynamic. I would love for people to see how I’m doing it because I think I could be a good example of a young, single mom.”

Parade: What are you doing differently?

Brandy: “A lot of mothers feel like they’re the mom first, with that authority. But for me, I’m a friend first. I believe that just being there for my daughter as a friend more than ‘I’m in charge…’ causes her to be more open with me as a person. That’s just what our relationship is. Of course, there are times when I have to discipline her — I’m mom. But there’s still that nurturing and love there that we have. I know I’ll probably get flack for being a friend first, but it really works. She’s really honest with me. I’m just teaching her how to trust herself. I tell her all the time that my life is not your life — you have your own life.

“At the end of the day we’re going to be friends. When she grows up, it’ll be about that friendship that we’ll have. She’ll come to me for any problems that she has. If I have an authoritative wall up, she’s going to rebel and not come to me and I don’t want that.”

Parade: You’ve been single for some time now.

Brandy: “Yes I have! [laughs] Can I get a little love action, God? What’s up?”

Parade: Would you ever consider doing a dating reality show?

Brandy: “No! I will not do a reality show about finding love; you can’t find love, love finds you. What I’m looking for in a guy is myself — the qualities that I find in myself are what I’m looking for in my soul mate. I want a guy who is loyal, honest and big on communication. I’m also really big on romance. I want to be able to receive what I give. It’s all about giving and receiving.”

Brandy is no longer “coupled up” with rapper Flo Rida. We saw this one coming from a mile away. Pop the hood for details

Brandy started seeing “Flo,” as she liked to call him, last year but something never seemed quite right with the relationship, especially after the R&B singer blogged about being “scared” to commit.

Now that their “relationship” is a wrap, she says she called the whole thing off to focus on her family and career, saying “I don’t have a rapper boyfriend named Flo Rida. I am very much about myself. I have to focus on what I need to do.”

Brandy’s previous boos include NBA baller Quentin Richardson and her producer/babydaddy Robert Smith.

We wouldn’t be surprised if the whole thing was a publicity lie in the first place. We know Brandy is all about crafting the right image — even if it means faking a marriage

Brandy and Ray J’s illegitimate brother Danyelle “C-Dove” Brown took his DNA test this weekend to prove once and for all that Big Willie Norwood is indeed his father.
