When I do music, I don't feel like it's competition. Then again, it kinda is, but I don't like thinking like that. And I don't understand why they do that to women and, especially, women in hip-hop.
A lot of designers, they did tell me no. They didn't really wanna work with me.
I could really make a song of hurt, because I've been hurt by a lot of men. I'm talking about, like, how sad I be when a dude curves me. And I never talk about that because I refuse to let people know that I get sad because when a man don't answer my calls.
I'm not as open as I used to be. I'm a little bit more filtered, and it kind of sucks, but it's the price you pay to get paid.
I worked at this supermarket called Amish Market. Everything is, like, organic.
What I'm trying to say to girls is don't let these guys be in your head.
No one calls me Belcalis except for my family, my mother, and my daddy.
It's not even the female rappers that are catty - it's the fans. They just want that beef.
A lot of females, they want to do the things that I do. Some females are so closed, but they want to be open. Some girls, they want to feel that power that I tell them that I have. I tell women that I have power over these men, that I use these men.
No man wants to accept they could be getting used for money. But it's OK for them to let us know that they use us?
I want to be an artist artist, a real artist. I don't just want to do this for temporary money.
I cannot turn my life back around. I'm already a public figure, I'm famous... It's like, I might as well keep it going, might as well make the money.
I feel beautiful without makeup on, but when I do put makeup on, it just gives me this extra pop.
I was always scared to follow my dreams because if I follow my dreams and I fail, I can't dream about it anymore. It's easier to settle for less.
This is my work ethic: I do not want to raise my future kids where I was raised, and I know the only way to do it is working, working, working, working, working.
I have a passion for music; I love music. But I also have a passion for money and paying my bills.
I just feel like I influence people because I'm like - I was practically homeless.
People are afraid to be themselves because people are afraid to be recorded. Everything is being recorded, and everyone is so sensitive. You say something; a section of people will be offended. It's so annoying; you got to be completely censored.
I was a little hesitant to do 'Love & Hip-Hop' because sometimes reality TV can be good for your music career and sometimes bad.
If a girl have beef with me, she gon' have beef with me forever.
Instagram has said plenty of times that I'm pregnant, Instagram has said a lot of things about me that are not true, so I don't even know where that's coming from.
People want me to be so full of shame that I used to dance. I would never be ashamed of it. I made a lot of money. I had a good time, and it showed me a lot.
A lot of people always question, 'What else can she do, what else can she do?' And I'm going to show you.
To me, music is art and fashion is art, but fame? Fame isn't art, but the person you become when you're famous - your alter ego - that's art.
I'm a woman. Every woman, I think, wants to get married and wants to have children.
I'm so free-spirited. Everyone has a me inside them: that loud girl that just wanna go, 'Ayyyy!' No matter if you a doctor, a lawyer, a teacher, it comes out.
The women that inspire me to be honest are the women that struggle.
I do feel kind of guilty sometimes 'cause, like, I could buy myself a $5,000 dress or a $3,000 dress, and I'm buying these things, but I'm knowing that my cousin need money for the rent. And then I gotta tell myself, 'Stop feeling guilty. You worked for this.'
I used to worry a lot. I still worry a lot, but not about the things that I used to worry about because my younger self, I didn't regret anything that I ever did... I was happy, and I was free, and I was living it up.
