On her fame: "Sometimes a person looks at me and sees dollars. They see numbers and they see a product. I look at me and see art. If I didn't like what I was doing, then I would say I was committing slavery. "
On why she didn't tattoo her face the night prior to the interview: "The tattoo artist said nope, I'm not gonna do it," she says, "because if you're looking at your face, it's right there staring at you."
On her sex appeal: "That comes from my culture. That's just the way it's always been, and I think that for people, especially in America, they make it like the forbidden fruit, but that only makes kids more curious. I was a lot more naive about the way I moved and the way I was being perceived. The more you hear people talk about 'Oh, you're a sex symbol,' it just makes you think, 'Why are you saying that?' And I figured it out."
On how she is in relationships: "I like to feel like a woman. I have to be in control in every other aspect of my life, so I feel like in a relationship, like I wanted to be able to take a step back and have somebody else take the lead. I could absolutely be dominant, But, in general, I'd rather... How do I say this in like a...non-X-rated version?"
On the fight between Chris Brown and Drake at W.I.P Nightclub in New York City: "There's no proof of that being for my love. That's my answer to that question."
