When you're put in a position to really affect young people who are going to run the world one day, if you're able to be in their life at a young age and make a positive impact, I think that's a beautiful thing.
I'm a chocolate addict.
I love Adele; she's a timeless, classic beauty. I think she's beautiful. She's just a real woman.
Some things are really sacred and important to other cultures, so you have to be aware, politically, about those things before you just adopt them.
I hate when books are written from the wrong perspective; when they're written by adults for tweenagers. Like, do you truly remember what it's like to be 12? No, not really.
I want to make affordable shoes of quality that are very fashion forward, chic, and that I'm going to wear.
My mother's proud of where she's from, and her history, and her past, and same with my dad. I have roots in Africa. Like, I am from Africa as well as from Germany, and I am very proud of that.
A lot of people don't realize that hair is a big thing for a lot of people, not just African-American women. It's something to be aware of and to be cautious of.
Age doesn't mean anything. Age doesn't mean I can't work as hard. Age doesn't mean I can't do as well as everyone else. It's just a factor. It's just there.
I love singing and would love to record an album at some point.
As an artist, you have to work really, really hard because you gotta make something that will allow people to even take the chance to even listen to it, you know?
I have parents and family who will never allow me not to be grounded. If I thought for a second that I could possibly lift off the ground, I have a thousand people who will grab my ankles.
I've had a lot of voices tell me what I should be making. Personally, I would much rather live and die by my own hand. If my stuff sucks, then at least I made it suck. I didn't allow some person, some old dude in a suit, to make it suck for me.
I definitely enjoy working with people who can do their thing but also allow me to do my thing, you know? Who respect the process.
To all the parents out there, thank you for allowing me to be a role model for your children. I really, really do not take that for granted.
As you grow older, your music begins to mature and grow older along with you.
I am so honored to join the company of a roster as celebrated and diverse as Covergirl's. I can't wait to share some of my own beauty tips with fans and work alongside Covergirl to continue empowering girls and women to celebrate their individuality.
'Shake It Up' definitely teaches kids about the importance of reaching for your dreams and setting high goals. It also teaches great lessons about friendship and family.
