I’m just a regular girl. Some days I’m super strong; some days I’m super insecure. I just speak my truth and if people like it, they like it, and if they bash it, they bash it.
If I had to describe (the past ten years) I would say blessed’. Blessed and highly favoured, because the things that have happened to me have been once in a lifetime.
Definitely tougher to be vulnerable. As a woman in the industry, you try so hard to remain strong and to not let your guard down. And once you let the walls down and let people see that you were a regular person who has feelings, sometimes people take advantage of that. I think that applies for everyone. It’s always a little bit nerve-racking to just completely let your guard down because you just don’t know if people are going to appreciate it. And then if they don’t appreciate it, you can feel like you did it in vain.

And it makes me sad that maybe I’ve contributed to that in some way.

A lot of kids join the army to get a college education. That’s why they do it, and they get sent into these horrible situations.
If you really want something, you’ve gotta just do it and not wait for other people to hand it to you.
We need to stop talking about whether women are funny. And we need to acknowledge that black people are funnier than white people. Let’s discuss that.
This industry’s very fickle, you’re only as big as your last record, you know? And we intend on releasing some good records yet, so we don’t intend on going anywhere.
I only mentioned people in Barbie Dreams that I f**k wit. This isn’t a diss. Yikes. This is culture, this is BIGGIE!!!!! New York!!!! This is FUN. Light hearted fun.
But listen, I’m 29-years-old, I’m really lucky to be there and whatever happens I’ve been really blessed already. I have plenty of awards for this movie and if this was it for me I’d be really content.
