“ 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."
