On dealing with drama on the set:
I worked with someone who told me theyd never like me. But for some reason, I just felt like I needed her approval. So I started changing myself to please her. It made me stop being social and friendly. I was so unhappy.

On taking her time with her record:
Im a big perfectionist! Im trying to channel super-confident women like Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey and Beyonce, because I realized that if you want something, you really have to go for it, just like they do.

On her long distant relationship with Jai:
Love is a really scary thing and you never know whats going to happen. Its one of the most beautiful things in life, but its one of the most terrifying. Its worth the fear because you have more knowledge, experience, you learn from people, and you have memories.
