" 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."

Repost via @mzsummerdion: "#ThrowBackThursday begins...aaliyah and I met in #1995 in #Denver, CO at the #BlackExpo (we need to bring this back by the way). Had a #backstage pass and I was 14 years old, she was 15. The sweetest, most quiet person I have ever met in my life. She signed autographs, for my cousin @mia_o.rose , sister @iamkaylamarque and I and talked to us for like 20 mins. I just remember thinking her feet are so small, lol! Her autograph says, "TO SUMMER, STAY AT YOUR BEST! AALIYAH" Oh man. One of the greatest moments of my teenage years. I just found this yesterday and I'm like I MET AALIYAH!!! I be missing people like they were in my life always! 🖤🖤🖤 Thank you for sharing your light, love and time with me. Who else has an autograph from Aaliyah?? @usher was not in the building yet when we met Aaliyah backstage, he literally showed up right before he was to perform, so we didn't get to meet him. So Usher I still need to meet you and get my autographed 1995 picture from you please lol 😁😁😁 #tbt #music #usher #aaliyah"

Wow such a beautiful candid memory! Thank you so much for sharing with us all! 🙏🏽❤
