I collect different game hats, like Syracuse Women's Volleyball; I have a Navy Basketball hat. They're all vintage but in new condition.
Twitter is essential to me because I wake up and check it religiously. It's a way I communicate with my fan base.
I have a personal barber, Mister C. He lives in Brooklyn, but he travels with me. He used to cut Lady Gaga's hair, but he fired her to work for me.
When I want to choose to work with someone, you know, I definitely have to do some research on their background and how they were raised as people.
When I was younger, I wasn't thinking about fit. Clothes are measured just for me now. I know that's not what the average person does, but I've gotten smart about what fits my body the right way and what makes me feel comfortable.
I'll buy an old jacket and attach gold buttons and a couple royal patches. Or I'll find an old busted sweatshirt, tear out the zipper, and replace it with a $700 zipper. I make things my own.
I believe your atmosphere and your surroundings create a mind state for you.
There were times when I was just listening to albums for the hype of it. Some albums, I would just put it on in my car, and me and my friends would just drive, that we'd wild out to, get arrested to.
I admire traveling; I appreciate it a lot.
Go to American Apparel; they have all of the colors of socks.
I can pull off anything; I have the height and the attitude. The only thing I can't wear is a leotard, but I can wear anything else.
Shopping at any level is a bit of therapy for my medulla oblongata.
Colby Jordan is one of the most fashion-forward and passionate girls I know. She gives me these young Anna Wintour vibes when I'm around her!
I started getting emails from Anna Wintour inviting me to her dinners. It was just surreal.
After Andy Warhol died, it left a dark cloud over N.Y.C. nightlife.
I love to hear a cool ambient sound at runway shows. It creates a good energy.
Let's see: I'm into a whole bunch of different people - Alexander Wang... that's my dude.
Mixtapes are very personal, and they describe who you are better than an album sometimes.
The first time I really listened to an album and thought, 'This album is mine,' was Kanye's 'Late Registration.'
The second album is the hardest to write. It's nothing like the first album.
Creating the album 'VIBES' has been the biggest life lesson I have ever learned.
I like to go to the airport looking stylish - you never know who you'll run into. Sometimes I have fans at the airports. I never want to be bummy looking.
I went to Texas a few times for gigs and adopted the cowboy look. Every man, at some point in his life, goes through a cowboy stage - everyone! Well, at least everyone that I look up to!
I admire natural, untouched beauty.
I'm a big fan of Caribbean food, Spanish food, Dominican food - like rice and beans. Hot sauce just adds a different layer of boom to the food, you feel me?
I focus a lot on my voice because I want it to be an instrument as well. I want my voice to add color.
