Dancing was always part of my culture growing up in Barbados. When I shot my 1st video I worked really hard with my choreographer to perfect the routines.
God just has a way of working things out the way he wants to and you have no say in that.
I always keep my guard up with guys and I guess that can get in the way sometimes. I can make them go through hell.
I am a child but I have to think and act like a woman, this business forces you to.
I am happy and I’m single.
I don’t do things for the response or for the controversy. I just live my life.
I don’t have anything to hide.
I drink a lot of coconut water. It balances out all the other toxic stuff I put into my body.
I hate going to the gym and doing it the old-fashioned way. I hate anything that’s too straightforward, too routine, too familiar. I get bored really, really quickly.
I have such incredible experiences in my life.
I have too many clothes, I have too many options.
I like to be creative.
I love music, and after my first experience with movies, I can’t wait to do more.
I love reading people. I really enjoy watching, observing, and being able to figure out a person, the reason they wore that dress, the reason they smell the way they do.
I never eat salad. I make sure I don’t put a lot of junk into my system, but I hate vegetables!
I want to give people a taste of the Caribbean, and show them the fun side of me.
I’d love to date somebody cool, fun, funny.
I’m crazy and I don’t pretend to be anything else.
I’m really looking forward to seeing what life brings to me.
If I cry, it’s because I’m very angry and I can’t do anything about it because I’ve run into a dead end. That’s when the tears would come down.
If someone is right for you, you’ll know it.
It is one thing to record an album but it’s a huge difference when people play it and listen to it and embrace it the way that I do. It has always been my dream to get my music out to the world and have people hear it.
It’s every girl’s dream to be a cover girl!
Music is in my DNA!
My mother would kill me if I posed nude! My mother raised me with certain standards.
Over the holidays, and even during filming, I realized that I actually like my body, even if it’s not perfect according to the book. I just feel sexy. For the first time, I don’t want to get rid of the curves. I just want to tone it up. My body is comfortable, and it’s not unhealthy, so I’m going to rock with it.
People – especially white people – they want me to be a role model just because of the life I lead. The things I say in my songs, they expect it of me.
People think, because we’re young, we aren’t complex, but that’s not true. We deal with life and love and broken hearts in the same way a woman a few years older might.
Single life is so overrated.
The bottom line is that everyone thinks differently.
When I am putting looks together, I dare myself to make something work. I always look for the most interesting silhouette or something that’s a little off, but I have to figure it out. I have to make it me. I think that’s the thrill in fashion.
When I cut my hair, the whole sound changed, my style changed.
When I was fourteen and first started going out, I always wanted to be the opposite of everyone else. So I would go to the club in a polo T-shirt and pants and sneakers and a hat on backward, just so I would not be dressed like other girls.
When you realize who you live for, and who’s important to please, a lot of people will actually start living. I am never going to get caught up in that. I’m gonna look back on my life and say that I enjoyed it – and I lived it for me.
You don’t want to live your life and then meet someone. You want to share your life with someone. That’s what I’m missing right now.
You have to just accept your body. You may not love it all the way, but you just have to be comfortable with it, comfortable with knowing that that’s your body.
You just want something else that someone else has, but that doesn’t mean what you have isn’t beautiful, because people always want what you have, and you always want what they have – no one is ever 100 per cent like, ‘Yes, I’m the bomb dot com – from head to toe!’
