On her Fade visual:

‘It’s something that I worked very hard for, something that I deserved.’ I watched it like 68 times before I actually liked it, to be like ‘yeah…I guess it’s good.

I think I’m critical about anything I am passionate about, when you’ve been doing it for so long, and you’re underrated and you’re not really getting that acknowledgement, you are hard on yourself…I have to put my all into everything, so I overthink everything.’

On Insecurities:

‘My favorite part [of my body] used to be my breasts, but now my breasts belong to Junie. She probably sucked out every ounce of milk… I had to pump, because she didn’t want to work for the milk…so now I just deal with little mommy insecurities. Whenever I look super busty, ladies, that ain’t nothing but a little double-sided tape [and a] push-up bra. We all have flaws… you gotta embrace it.

You’re gonna have a little sag down there, and there’s nothing wrong with a little sag. I think today, we forget what real beauty is…I appreciate it because this sag is from me birthing and feeding my child, my seed that is a part of me. I appreciate every stretch mark, every sag. One boob is bigger than the other…but it is what it is. I love my body and I love the place that I’m in. And I think dance and happiness and movement and family and love is what makes me love my body.’

On Workouts and Dieting:

‘My diet sucks, I eat pizza, fried chicken, macaroni; I don’t eat vegetables. But I dance! It’s crazy because everybody says OMG I want your body, how do you stay so small? [But] like the same ways people try to lose weight, there are people trying to gain weight. My whole life, I’ve always had issues gaining weight.’
