I'm as deep and shallow as you're willing to discover. I am ferocious. I start and calm storms. I cool you with my tide and caress you with my waves. Go out to sea and get lost in me. I'll always lead you back to the shore.

"…people are afraid of nudity when it is not packaged for the consumption of male entertainment. Had I been in stilettos or something else maybe it would have been okay. But not the black woman walking down the street with no wig and barefoot. Nobody understands that."

"When I first came out as an artist in 1997, I believed that I was trying to achieve some kind of appreciation for bringing African culture to the forefront. As I grew as a human being, as an artist, as a person, I’m not trying to achieve anything. I just want to be honest and connect with everything, not just one sector of people or one race of people, or one religion or one ideology. I just want to be as human as I can since I’m here and tell you how I feel from my perspective. That’s really all I can do, cause I really don’t know anything, you know, I don’t, I don’t know a lot."
