I told you how you hurt me, baby, but you don’t care. Now I’m crying and deserted baby but you don’t care.
I don’t like to gamble. I work too hard for my money. But if it’s one thing I’ll bet on, it’s myself.
I just want my legacy to be great music. Someone who was a risk taker and someone who had songs that struck conversation and emotion.
Jay’s music is more than music. His lyrics have fathered generations. All that he has overcome gives millions so much hope. There are moments when I see his lips moving and I can see lyrics floating above his head and I think, ‘Wow! How did I get so lucky to be able to witness this level of genius so closely?’
I wanna keep it how it is so you can never say how it used to be.
If I could change one part it would be my feet. After all the years dancing, they’re a little beat up. And I wear big earrings because I don’t like my ears.
I decided to take some time off. Now during that time I still worked just because I enjoy my job. One of the things I learned is how much I love it, it’s just in me.
I’ve always been a Jay-Z groupie.
I don’t need people to think for me. I’ve never been that way & I don’t ever want to be that way.
I wanted to make a body of work that took risks – to be brave and be myself, and not focus on being cool.
I felt like more heart & soul & real lyrics & stories should be brought back into popular music.
I only allow myself one day to feel sorry for myself. People who complain really get on my nerves. When I’m not feeling my best I ask myself, ‘What are you gonna do about it?’ I use the negativity to fuel the transformation into a better me.
