Personal Quotes:


"I had always been a fan of Nas, but I never met him. This is the one guy in the industry who's like the phantom rapper."

"You know what's funny? I'm a celebrity here but a star in Europe..."

“Am I R&B because I'm Black? Am I pop because I have a song called "Milkshake"? Or can I just be who the hell I am? Good Lord, people make it seem like we're doing heart transplants here, but we're just making music!”
