Putting her hopes for an all female tour out there Thursday, Monica says other women in music are more than welcome.
"I would love for it to be all female where you can come out and see women do their thing, every night," Monica told Essence. "We're looking for other people to go out with us as well."
In related news, Monica has opened up discussing her last moments with the late Whitney Houston. Admitting it was hard to deal with her death, Monica says she's holding on to a few things Houston shared during her last days.
"I'm grateful for the two days we shared together before she passed. We were able to talk about some things and share some things that I'll be able to carry with me for the rest of my life. It's hard to describe that kind of pain," says Monica. "She didn't get peace in the midst of her life here on earth. I think that it's best that she get that peace in her death and always get that respect that she deserves in the end."
Monica is also promoting the release of her new album, "New Life." Released Tuesday, the album features songs like "Until It's Gone," "Anything (To Find You)" and "It All Belongs To Me."
