On Dating Advice | If he invited you out, he`s got to pay.
On Being Nervous | I think it’s healthy for a person to be nervous. It means you care – that you work hard and want to give a great performance. You just have to channel that nervous energy into the show.
On Personal Growth | If everything was perfect, you would never learn and you would never grow.
The Meaning Of Power | Power means happiness; power means hard work and sacrifice.
On Setting Goals | I can never be safe; I always try and go against the grain. As soon as I accomplish one thing, I just set a higher goal. That’s how I’ve gotten to where I am.
On Inspiring Women | I remember being in Japan when Destiny’s Child put out ‘Independent Women,’ and women there were saying how proud they were to have their own jobs, their own independent thinking, their own goals.

On Qualities Besides Outer Beauty | We all have our imperfections. But I’m human, and you know, it’s important to concentrate on other qualities besides outer beauty.

On Independent Women | I truly believe that women should be financially independent from their men. And let’s face it, money gives men the power to run the show. It gives men the power to define value. They define what’s sexy. And men define what’s feminine. It’s ridiculous.
On Lessons Learnt | I’m a human being and I fall in love and sometimes I don’t have control of every situation. With a lot of success comes a lot of negativity. Make sure you have your own life before becoming someone’s wife.
