Personal Quotes:

  • I've never looked at love as something that I need to complete me. I would like to be complete on my own first and fall in love with somebody who is also complete. You can still celebrate and be totally obsessed with each other, but I want to feel a hundred percent myself so that I can love that person better.
  • A lot of times, women are labeled as a bitch or a diva for having a vision and being strong and using their voice, and it's just not the case. You can be strong and be friendly. [We] don't have to be just one thing, you know? Women can love to read a book and have sex.
  • You have to be thankful and I think being in this business is one of the most important things is to give back because there's no better feeling than knowing that your work is being appreciated by people.
