The multi-talented performer also talked about about her hesitation to get close to other celebrities.
“I don’t want to get close to a celebrity and feel like we have a connection, and then out of nowhere they do some funny sh*t and disappoint me. I’ve always had the same friends. I’m very loyal. If I’m your friend, I’m going to always ride hard for you. But if you don’t ride hard for me or you do some funny sh*t, I’m going to feel a certain type of way. My husband always tries to tell me, ‘You can’t think like that because you’ve got to network and this is not real life. You got to understand that.’” (Interview)
