“I just want you to understand, if you think one man can tear this world apart, you're out of your motherf*****g mind. It's on us to keep this s**t together. F**k that man!”
"Sit your f*****g ass down or get the f**k out. Sit your f*****g a** down. I’m talking, b***h. You paid to see a show. Sit you’re a** down. You can’t take a joke, you’re in the wrong motherf*****g place. Sit your f*****g ass down or get the f**k out of here.”
“The fact that people are ready to forget the past and help me move forward to the next step of my career is very inspiring. As you get older you realize that most of your peers are either dead or in jail. The fact that we can move pass the BS is a testimony of how much we have grown.”
“If I change people’s lives, that’s all that matters to me. I don’t want to be the first ‘dyke rapper,’ ‘aggressive rapper.’ I don’t care for that … I hear from all different people, not just people like me, or lesbians. It be straight people, it be grown men, it be grown women, people that have been sick or depressed that say, ‘Oh, you made me want to go do what I want to do for myself and chase my dreams.’ That’s my purpose.”
“They were very disappointed that it was small and flat.”
“The bad thing with me is that this happened to me before when I was a kid. I was a teenager the first time I got pregnant. And I had an ectopic pregnancy then. So they removed... I literally passed out. Like I thought I just had bad cramps and I passed out.”
"I said, 'Whoa, whoa, wait, hold on.' You talking to the wrong person, man, because as far as I'm concerned... the most beautiful aspect of Black women is that they've been through the most s**t you could go through in this country. You know what I mean? They really have been through the most s**t and that's a beautiful thing... That's something that... should empower you to be a better version than what the f**k you are."
"I can’t even lie, I’m not saying that it’s impossible, but [dating in L.A.] was hard. I had to import. I think it was also the circles that you’re in especially when you’re in the industry, that breeds the same thing and I lived there for so long, if I went back and I was single I would do it a different way."
“She put me in charge of finding the person for her.”
“I don’t understand it. Everybody knows Trey Songz sucks d**k. He didn’t want you! You and I both know Keke that … was the gag. He’s a f*g and I don’t have nothing against you people that do the broken wrist s**t. You can be the other way, just don’t bring that s**t this way. And we gon’ be a-okay.”
"Of the 30-some odd things on here she says, ‘Yes, and we have some great programs that you may want to take advantage of that you may need — WIC is a great program; I don’t know if you have insurance. WIC is welfare. So I guess she saw this little black girl with the little baby by herself, and on the door, I didn’t realize that they’d put a faux last name, and the last name was ‘Brown.’ So I guess she saw ‘Miss Brown’ and was like, ‘She probably needs some WIC.’"
"I agree with that description. If you remove the 'et' from asset."
