About Christina Johnson
It is often stated that whatever doesn’t kill us makes us stronger. If this is true, Christina Johnson has superhuman strength! Christina was a teen mom born to a teenage mother; but, refuses to be a statistic. The Charlotte, NC native relocated to Atlanta, GA in 1997 with her two young daughters in pursuit of a creative career; but, as fate would have it, she met and fell in love with burgeoning rapper/singer Cee Lo (formerly of NBC’s The Voice). Sharing mutual passions for family life and artistic expression, Johnson served as Cee-Lo’s muse in several of his music videos. The couple married in 2000 and soon welcomed son, Kingston O’Keefe Callaway in 2001. As a new wife raising children, including a newborn, Christina birthed InnerPiece Designs (IPD), a progressive interior design and consulting firm.
InnerPiece offers a minimalistic approach to design by combining natural and organic materials with modern pieces, which visually harmonize with the high-end residential properties and commercial spaces they customize. IPD’s global clientele includes superstar entertainers such as Cee-Lo, Ludacris and Young Jeezy, athletes, urbanites and business professionals. Her work has appeared on national TV programs such as MTV, as well as in between the pages of Ebony, VIBE, Atlanta Peach and Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles where she was featured in the “Top 10 Under 40”.
Ironically, Johnson’s 2005 divorce from Green left her seeking inner peace, as she confronted deeply hidden issues she had buried from childhood. Johnson sought solace in her service-first attitude and got involved with a domestic violence organization where she began speaking to youth at Atlanta area schools on the subjects of dating and domestic violence; something she continues to do today. As a star of VH1’s “Atlanta Exes,” Johnson values the sisterhood bond, which she has formed with her enterprising cast mates. Johnson also hopes to shed light on Graves’ Disease, an autoimmune disorder that affects the thyroid gland. Diagnosed with Graves’ Disease in 2009, Johnson has undergone 3 surgeries; but, remains optimistic and active in spite of the diagnosis. The visionary mogul along with Toni Acey, the celebrity make- up artist, co-found beauty brand Butterfly EFX, which will launch later this year. Johnson and Acey leveraged their affinity for fashion and style by developing a highly pigmented palette of lipsticks and lip-glosses that are not only richly saturated in color, but also beautifully packaged. The duo will introduce a charitable foundation called Lipstick Therapy, which will help women cultivate a positive self-image through art and educational programs, as well as provide complimentary grooming sessions!
Having overcome years of setbacks and battles, Johnson feels she is finally living out her purpose and what some may consider the new American dream. Christina, a devoted mother, businesswoman, spiritual guru and philanthropist, may not view herself as a modern day superwoman, but if the cape fits…might as well wear it and own it!
