It was really like waking up one morning and going, Wow, I enjoy being with this person more than anybody else in my life, and it just turned out to be mutual.
A lot of student directors used to pick other students to be in their graduate films, so. I ended up doing a couple of them just for fun. Eventually, I got an agent through a friend and I did some commercials; then I got Knots Landing.
If somebody doesn’t have enough judgment to be able to look at plastic surgery and realize how phony it is, then they can’t be helped.
I’m just saying, it’s got to be about something more than just body parts when you’re with somebody.
When somebody gives up their friends and everything they do just to be with a person, they wake up miserable one day. They’re denying themselves for no real reason other than they think that’s the thing to do.
I’m sometimes critical about other artists who come out with something different until maybe I hear the music. If the music is there, then they did their job, and I’ll enjoy the CD.
My goal was to play drums, but my father made me take piano lessons. He told me I needed to learn to read music first, so I took lessons for six years. I thank God that he made me take those lessons, because it taught me a tremendous amount.
All I can say is that I’ve had too many people in the hip-hop industry really like what I’m doing. I know where I’m coming from, and the album speaks for itself.
My mother’s incredibly giving, almost too giving at times. And, my dad is a real logical person. He’s got logic for every situation. They’ve been married for 24 years, so there was that stability, also. I really learned to think on my own at a very young age.
James Brown was one of the first artists who found four bars that he liked and played them the entire way through, and then he just added to it vocally.
I take a baths all the time. I’ll put on some music and burn some incense and just sit in the tub and think, Wow, life is great right now.
She really mellowed me out that way. We both definitely grew with each other and with the whole experience.
I can’t just sit around and do nothing. Although, I can sit on the couch sometimes and just watch movies.
I may see somebody in a club one night and go, Wow, she’s the most attractive girl I’ve seen in a long time. Then I’ll see her the next night and be like, Oh no, I don’t think so.
We finally sat down and asked ourselves how much of our lives we wanted to give everybody. We had just given a little too much, and it started to become a burden.
In every interview I’ve got to explain something about being white but still being into hip hop. It’s gone way beyond the musical aspect of the business. And I’m as critical about music as everybody else is.
I started promoting clubs when I was 15. 1 was doing what is considered the normal collegiate stuff when I was a lot younger. I was holding my own, but doing a lot of crazy things.
I’ve just had some of the worst situations with the most beautiful girls who I just could not stand talking to anymore. The physical only lasts for so long.
Somebody who’s really comfortable with who she is and doesn’t care what other people think. I like women who are really strong and were brought up to be comfortable with themselves and respect themselves.
It’s just a fact of life. Everybody grows up and goes through changes, and our audience has seen it all.
