Olivia Longott proved that her artistic integrity and vision is more important than a quick payday on "Love & Hip Hop" (Mon., 8 p.m. EST on VH1) by turning down a three record deal with EMI. She did so because she would have had to sign away creative control on the deal, and she wasn't ready to do that.
"Now that I've decided not to take the EMI deal, I think it's time I move on to the next step, which is going over my issue with Funkmaster Flex," Olivia said on the show's season finale. She was upset over comments he'd made recently about her career being over, so she went on his radio show to talk things out with him.
"Olivia, you're taking this game so personal," he said to her on the air. "It's about making it happen the best way you can." He said that she should use his words as motiviation to defy him and prove him wrong. "If you give me that hot record, I'm with you," he promised.
So she set off to do just that, and is currently finding success with her newest single, "December."
Look for a "Love & Hip Hop" reunion special next Monday at 8 p.m. EST on VH1.
