Every time I've been around Beyonce, I get so nervous that I forget how to speak English.
Sometimes, people have issues, and you just wish sometimes that it could be good.
I'm trying different things, and I'm comfortable with who I am and not afraid of showing my confidence through my style.
We all feel like we're alone, but as artists, we get to see firsthand from our fans that we're not. Hearing them scream the words to your songs is the most amazing feeling.
I have three styles. One is my Hypebeast tomboy look, which is pretty much my everyday look.
My dream collaboration would be to work with Drake. Honestly, he's an amazing songwriter, and I feel like if we got the opportunity to do a song, it would be the most amazing thing to ever hit people's ears.
I embrace my darker skin - always have, always will. In addition, I believe black women have always been trailblazers and trendsetters. Acknowledgement or not, we are and always have been beautiful.
I like L.A., but I'm definitely a Brooklyn girl; I'm a city girl. I need the cars honking. I need the bright lights. I need people yelling in the middle of the night screaming at each other. I need all of that.
When I'm in L.A., I kind of go crazy in the middle of the night when it's, like, completely quiet.
When the Rocawear team reached out and wanted to make me the face of La Belle Roc, I was super excited!
I'm hoping that people will love the music, but at the same time, the most important thing to me is that I love the music.
Music says the things that people don't say or are afraid to say, and that's the best part about it for me.
Things move really fast on the Internet and get forgotten, we always want something new, even though something may have just came out.
I thought that the music industry was going to be pretty easy - getting features and stuff - and everyone was going to be nice. But I realized that it's really, really hard to get features.
I'm a Virgo, so I'm a super hard lover. I fall in love so quickly!
I'm not going to blurt out my whole life on the Internet and just be all crazy emotional. I'm not that type of person, but it's in my music.
Sometimes there can be pressure to post, especially from your followers.
What inspires me is the relationships and situations I find myself in as I grow and learn.
I love to glow, and it's important for me to have a good highlighter to brighten up.
Drake is a lyrical genius, and he's great with melodies, and Pharrell is an amazing producer and songwriter.
Social media is a huge struggle for my generation in general - it's a lot of pressure! Even having an Instagram is stressful. You have to make it look cool, posting it at the right time, and it's become its own job and not something where you connect with people.
It's kinda hard to date as an artist because you're all over the place, and your significant other may seem jealous, depending on what they're doing.
You got to learn when to be the bigger person, especially in the entertainment business.
My hair color is super important to my look because I feel like it helps kind of define who I am. It's like a characteristic of mine that makes me feel comfortable and different from the rest.
As artists, we have the luxury of experimenting with extra crazy things, but I feel like my aesthetic is very street-style and high-low.
Everyone has their own style. It's unique; no one person's style is wrong.
New York has definitely turned into more of, like, a hipster place.
I'm more conscious about who I let into my heart, and I'm singing about it.
No one can predict the future, but what I do know is that myself and my team work hard every day to make sure that my vision, my sound, and my brand reach their full potential.
I believe I'm a unicorn. Unicorns are very magical and powerful and strong.
My hair is purple, and unicorns mean a lot to me. They're unique, rare, majestic, and beautiful, and I think those are some things that I embody. I wasn't always confident, and so once I gained my confidence, I was like, 'I'm a unicorn, and I don't care what anybody says.' My fans are unicorns, too. I like to call them my 'unicorn nation.'
The first three years my hair was purple, I still was trying to convince myself that I hated the color purple.
It takes a lot for you to find your confidence, but you shouldn't let someone else be the person to find it for you.
Even at my lowest point, when I've wanted to give up, I know that I have to believe in myself because I'm all that I have.
For the most part, I'm very into sweatpants and cute tops from streetwear brands like Supreme and Palace for a '90s tomboy vibe.
When I first started wearing blue lipstick, it was a MAC gloss that they had. Everyone was making fun of me, and I was like, 'Watch - this is going to be cool one day.'
The-Dream was like my diary. I would sit there and talk his ear off about all my guy situations; he would just turn my stories into songs.
I kind of came about at the same time as Instagram, and it becomes, like, your portfolio. When people search who you are, they search Instagram, and I feel like people aren't even using Google anymore.
When I was 16, I started to spend a lot of time in Soho and downtown New York and noticed everyone's style and the eclectic things people would wear. And that's when I started to experiment with things like my lipstick and mixing different kinds of pieces and, of course, my hair color.
One of the biggest things I struggle with is people's opinions. As much as I would like to say that I don't care, I see those comments. And sometimes it affects you more than others, or may completely change your mood.
I'm pretty sure we've all had a situation where a certain ex or person finds their way back in your life. I've realized that it's not about dwelling over it and overthinking.
I like to mix the street look with classy and sexy. I call it 'hood chic.'
