Lira Galore is back with a new project—a t-shirt collaboration with the brand Popular Demand. The vixen is the new face of the line’s latest t-shirt.
Fresh off her relationship with rap superstar Rick Ross, Lira Galore (aka Mercer) is spilling the beans on her sexy new shoot, her public relationship and breakup with Ross, as well as her plans for the future.
As for the t-shirt collab, Lira explains:
“I hooked up with Popular Demand when they reached out to me, and we set up a shoot. I’ll be the new girl on their t-shirt. I was really excited to work with them and meet the guys from the brand.”
“I was super excited to see the final images, I was wearing this sexy two-piece that was nude toned and it looked great on me with my skin tone,” she continued.
Great indeed. She also explained how she stays so fit and toned for shoots like this.
“I don’t eat the day of a shoot. The day of this shoot, I only had a protein shake,” she said.
She explained why she’s so hyped about the project:
“I have a big male following, so putting the shirt out with my image on it is going to be dope, because my fans are going to be able to rep me and show their appreciation for me.“
Lira is living it up in Los Angeles right now, working on perfecting her craft as a personality. She’s in acting class and ready to make a splash in Hollywood.
We did take some time to talk about her relationship with Ross and where it went wrong.
“I met Ross on the set of the “Thug Cry” video with Lil Wayne, but we didn’t start talking until later, because on set it was just a work vibe.”
Things picked up when they bumped into each other at a party.
“We met again All-Star Weekend and he grabbed me like, ‘yo, I’ve been looking for you.’ We exchanged numbers and the rest is history.”
Lira explained how she jumped right into the relationship.
“This was my first time in a public relationship, so I was happy about putting it out there. But people on social media don’t like to see that type of stuff, so they dug up old stuff that didn’t matter.”
The 22-year-old bombshell was shocked when she saw people meddling in her relationship, including pulling up things she tweeted and did when she was young and in high school – things that put a negative light on her relationship with Ross.
One of which was a picture of her with Meek Mill hugged up in a club.
“I’m not worried about the picture with Meek. It was just a picture that I posted on my Instagram. I was at work, I used to dance and it was just a picture,” she said.
But the negative attention was one of the reasons for their abrupt breakup.
“I think the initial breakup was a combination of everything from people digging up tweets when I was 17-years-old tweeting about different people, to the picture of Meek. I went to his (Ross’) tagged photos one day and it was only that picture of Meek, and it was just that photo. Everybody just kept posting it and I felt like as a man, he just couldn’t handle it when it was just nothing. I feel like during that time apart he realized he was tripping, so we got back together.”
Things picked back up with a stunning photoshoot together, but the relationship didn’t last.
“We just decided to go our separate ways. I’m 22 and this was my first time in love and I put it out there. I’m still in love with him, but some things don’t go as you would like them to go.”
With new projects and new single, we’re sure the young beauty will bounce back in no time.
