On her perceived public image:
“It doesn”t p*** me off because they don”t know me so well, so it”s easy for them to draw conclusions and it”s their right to. How can they know anything different But I tried to be as honest with myself as possible. Be realistic with who I am and what I love to do and what makes me happy.”
On her new mellow lifestyle:
“Recently, I”ve become like a square. I hate partying. I”ve been so bored with it. Maybe it”s because its the same music every night. I don”t know y”all feel me I don”t know, maybe we need some more DJ”s or something.
On her successful career:
“You work hard and you play hard. I”ve definitely been working a lot in the last 8 years, it”s been a lot of hard work, but I love it. I love doing what I do. I have a lot to celebrate, so you will catch me celebrating every once in a while because I work hard. I love what I do and I put my focus into that. That”s my priority. Being number 1 never gets old. It actually puts a lot of pressure on you. It”s a challenge in itself. It keeps me busy but I love it. I love to challenge myself.”
