Christopher “Ludacris” Bridges covers the March 2010 issue of Honey Magazine and opens up about relationships and his public battles with Bill O’Reilley.
I finally got that opportunity last year at the White House Correspondence dinner. When I saw his name on the list of people present, I immediately?went up and confronted him. He had this look on his face, like I was the last person that he expected to see.The first thing I said to him was, ?I wanted to meet the person who had so much to say about me but knows absolutely nothing about me.?

Luda also revealed why he desires to keep his mystery woman – who I’ve heard is headed to the alter with Mr. Luva Luva – a “secret”:
I try to preserve certain things and keep things special, and that is one thing that I would like to keep private.
I can respect that. Being locked down suits Luda though. He’s looking quite yummy these days…
Luda’s HoneyMag photospread contains several cute shots with a “Battle of the Sexes” theme. Check out the photos + behind the scenes video from the shoot below:

The theme is men vs women. What were you trying to do originally Battle Of The Sexes and how did it change?
Originally and now it?s pretty much the same. Originally, I was trying to get an album where you had a balance of both the male and female perspectives on many different issues and topics. I feel like it?s a male-dominated industry and I wanted to get a chance to hear more of the female voice on different subjects. At the same time, you have regular Ludacris songs on there. Long story short, I have records talking about women, records talking to women and records where they are talking back to me. That?s exactly what the premise was [and is].
For those of you who think you still have a shot a Luda, he describes his ideal woman in detail during the interview:
Describe your ideal woman
I don?t know what my type is until I see or meet that person. I guess I could say, intelligence, great personality and beauty, inside and out. I don?t discriminate.
Curves or model-esque stature?
I prefer women with curves.
Your song, ?Hey Ho? talks about the stigmas and double standards. Are you opening to dating a girl who has been around-the-block?
I?m not currently dating right now so I can?t answer the question.
That last question tickles me… great job Luda!? Click here to read the full HoneyMag interview.
