I stay true to myself and my style, and I am always pushing myself to be aware of that and be original.
Everything is worth it. The hard work, the times when you’re tired, the times where you’re a bit sad… In the end, it’s all worth it because it really makes me happy. There’s nothing better than loving what you do.
Keep working hard and you can get anything that you want. If God gave you the talent, you should go for it. But don’t think it’s going to be easy. It’s hard!
I want people to remember me as a full on entertainer and a good person.
You have to love what you do to want to do it everyday.
It’s in how you carry yourself. I’ve always been a very mature person, and I’ve always known what I wanted. And I go after it no matter what.
Whatever will be, will be.
If at first you don’t succeed/You can dust it off and try again/Dust yourself off and try again.
I see myself as sexy. If you are comfortable with it, it can be very classy and appealing.
I go through the same problems all young people go through. Being in this business, I accept that there are positives and negatives but having a strong family base and a belief in God enables me to weather the storms.
I don’t think about my previous success. I’m happy that the work I’ve done has been very successful.
Keep working hard and you can get anything that you want.
People are gonna look up to me because I’m young, black, and female.
You have to enjoy your job; you should wake up every day and love what you do… I honestly do… From the bottom of my heart to the depths of my soul. I’m truly happy.
Sensual is being in tune with your sensual self.
There are times in my life when I just want to be by myself.
That’s why I work every day. Ev-er-y day. I want to knock people out.
My parents just tell me, ‘If you know what you want, you should stay determined and go for it. You can do anything.’
I’m a survivor and I can handle anything. I’m very confident about that.
Well, I think that the image is a part of me. I wear the baggy pants, the hats, the whole nine. And you know, I may add a little for the excitement and the intrigue in the videos, but my family has told me that little air of mystery that surrounds me is for real.
Of course, the advantage is that, being in this business, you get to learn a lot, experience a lot of new things, and you can become real successful. The disadvantage is, of course the negative media. People may try to manipulate you and control you, and those are the things you have to avoid. But if you maintain strong family values and you believe in God, you can be successful. So, it’s been tough, but I’ve gotten through it because I stuck with my family and my deep belief in God.
There are certain things I want to keep to me. I don’t discuss my private life.
It’s fun to be creative and innovative and come up with something crazy. So I need people to work with who are not going to be afraid to take it to the left a bit.
I don’t want to abandon one work for the other, and I don’t think I need to sacrifice anything to put my all into either one of them.
There is always a bit of pressure to do a good album – to do good work, period. I really put a lot of pressure on myself, more so than other people. But I try not to let that overwhelm me to the point where I can’t even do good work. I just put it aside and do the best that I know that I can.
