Personal Quotes (4)

It's sad that people listen to music and decide how the singer should look.
People say I'm the white Aretha Franklin. I wish I was her.
[on why she always performs barefoot]: "I don't want to fall over, man."
I smoke weed, but I don't think it's really a drug. It's more of a herb. I don't regret saying that at all. I think everyone smokes weed and people who say they don't are lying! Weed has been given this evil stamp, but how is it dangerous? It's going to make you laugh your a**e off? You might go to sleep? I think alcohol is much more harmful.
