On love and relationships:
It’s more than sex, it is way way way more. That’s the goal. That’s the game. To have a partner, thats on your team, that will hold up their end, plus yours if you need it. That’s what I’m talking about. Theres a difference. It is a beautiful give and take.
On Bill Cosby and black entertainers:
I’m not saying that this is right. I’m saying that all men have proclivities. And I really feel that what ever is done to some do to all. Don’t decimate the legacy of the good. You tryna’ tell me if regardless of all the good I do in the world, if I do something bad everything else gets pushed away?
On her new album Woman:
I’ve been waiting to get here for a long time. As a female, I’ve been waiting to get to this point where I’m grown, I’m going to say what I feel, what I believe. I’m going to use my wisdom. I’ve had enough life experiences that I feel like I can impact somebody younger than me, or somebody my own age.
