" I don't mess around when it comes to my work – it's important. That's when I will definitely put someone in their place. "
“ If God gave you the talent, you should go for it. But don’t think it’s going to be easy. It’s hard! ”
" 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. ”
“ It’s hard to say what I want my legacy to be when I’m long gone. ”
“ That’s why I work every day. Ev-er-y day. I want to knock people out. ”
“ There is always a bit of pressure to do a good album – to do good work, period. ”
“ I’m a total performer. ”
“ People are gonna look up to me because I’m young, black, and female. ”
" I want longevity. I don't want to get out there and run myself ragged and spread myself thin. "
" I think it's important to take a break, you know, from the public eye for a while, and give people a chance to miss you. "
" I see myself as sexy. If you are comfortable with it, it can be very classy and appealing. "
" I began to work the stage and get the audience into it. I also learned how to have fun out there. It is something I will never forget."
" There are certain things I want to keep to me. I don’t discuss my private life. "
" When a fan comes up to you and says I love your music, there’s nothing better than that."
" You have to love what you do to want to do it everyday. "
" I’m the interpreter. I’m the one who takes your words and brings them to life. I was trained to sing and dance and laugh, and that’s what I want to do. "
" I don’t think about my previous success. I’m happy that the work I’ve done has been very successful. "
" 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. "
" I want people to remember me as a full on entertainer and a good person. "
" All I can do is leave it in God’s hands and hope that my fans feel where I’m coming from. "
" I stay true to myself and my style, and I am always pushing myself to be aware of that and be original."
" I’m a survivor and I can handle anything. I’m very confident about that. "
" 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."

Aaliyah: Amsterdam Netherlands Concert Ticket (May 8th, 1995)

By Sandy


Repost via @dutchaaliyah: "This is another exclusive, it’s the original entrance ticket 🎫 to Aaliyahs live performance in Amsterdam, the Netherlands on may 8th 1995. Keith Martin was her supporting act. This is so cool. The venue opened at 9.30 pm. And you had to pay fl. 47,50 Guldens, thats old. I think it’s like €21,55 and around $25. I like that it has the old Escape logo. Nowadays you have a barcode but back than you had a ticket number: NO. 001400. Who else got his first Aaliyah ticket?! Thanks to a great friend of my cousin, who took these photos. She is one of the lucky ones who went to Babygirls concert at @escape_amsterdam We are so jealous! Aaliyah visited Amsterdam in may 1995 which was part of her European tour. It was the first time she came over to visit our country."

Shout out to @dutchaaliyah for tagging us! Much love and respect! ❤️ We always look forward to seeing memorabilia from the early 90's, especially when it comes to our beloved Baby Girl 😎 I can't believe how cheap the tickets were back then! 😱  Boy...how times have changed...
