Swizz Beatz’ ex-wife Mashonda is the latest celebrity to cover an issue of King magazine.

The mother and star of VH1’s ‘Love And Hip-Hop’ will grace the May/June 2011 issue under the headline “Mashonda’s On To The Next One” and speak on exposing her life on television, her relationship with Fabolous’ girlfriend Emily B and getting back on the dating scene after a very public breakup.

The singer also spoke on a tattoo she got on her hand after her infamous breakup with Beatz that reads “Loyalty.”

KING: Can you explain the “Loyalty” tattoo on your hand?

MASHONDA: I got it a year after everything started going downhill. It’s a reminder to me that I have to be loyal to myself for once.

KING: Elaborate, please.

MASHONDA: I was so loyal to everyone, and I totally forgot about me. This is what it represents—it represents loyalty to self. Now I have to do things that I love to do, and I have to make myself happy, because I don’t really agree when people say, “I need a man ’cause I want to be happy,” or “I’m not happy because I don’t have a man.” That’s not where it starts. Happiness starts from within, and that’s in my focus.
