It's hard to say what I want my legacy to be when I'm long gone.
In film, you are a totally different person than in the video.
I don't feel I made any sacrifices at all. I'm doing my best to juggle.
I don't want to abandon one work for the other, and I don't think I need to sacrifice anything to put my all into either one of them.
Keep working hard and you can get anything that you want.
The Matrix is top secret. There isn't much that can be said right now.
I want people to remember me as a full on entertainer and a good person.
You have to love what you do to want to do it everyday.
I know that people think I'm sexy and I am looked at as that. It is cool with me. It's wonderful to have sexy appeal. If you embrace it, it can be a very beautiful thing.
I began to work the stage and get the audience into it. I also learned how to have fun out there. It is something I will never forget.
Romeo Must Die came at the right time. It was the right vehicle for me.
If you want to go to the mall, you have to take security. But it's always cool. The kids are amazing.
I'm the interpreter. I'm the one who takes your words and brings them to life. I was trained to sing and dance and laugh, and that's what I want to do.
All I can do is leave it in God's hands and hope that my fans feel where I'm coming from.
Because I came out as a singer, I took the time to get an acting coach.
I'm involved in some action scenes, so they'll train me for that. I'll be working with my acting coach to prepare for my character.
I stay true to myself and my style, and I am always pushing myself to be aware of that and be original.
If I don't think about it, it won't drive me crazy.
I think it's important to take a break, you know, from the public eye for a while, and give people a chance to miss you. I want longevity. I don't want to get out there and run myself ragged and spread myself thin.
I have the time needed to support the album and tour.
There are certain things I want to keep to me. I don't discuss my private life.
There are times in my life when I just want to be by myself.
It was always part of the plan to move into acting.
I'm a total performer.
It's really a sad story, and I liked that. The songs on this album talk about relationships in every aspect.
I don't think about my previous success. I'm happy that the work I've done has been very successful.
If at first you don't succeed, you can dust it off and try again.
Everything is worth it. The hard work, the times when you're tired, the times where you're a bit sad... In the end, it's all worth it because it really makes me happy. There's nothing better than loving what you do.
I’ve always known what I wanted. And I go after it no matter what.
Keep working hard and you can get anything that you want. If God gave you the talent, you should go for it. But don't think it's going to be easy. It's hard!
