In my generation, we sort of let the art speak for itself. We don't disclose our personal private lives.
To this day, I remember vividly Missy Elliott, Ludacris, and my grandma riding in a golf cart to set. My grandma went back to Ohio and told her bowling friends, 'Guess what? I was riding to set with Missy and Ridiculous!'
I think generationally, as human progress does its thing, we are constantly impressed by the upcoming generation.
I think what's important, as an artist who wants to be multi-dimensional, is learning how to shape-shift into those different paths fluidly and frequently.
For all the challenges I've faced in my path to self-acceptance, I've also traveled it with my own set of luck and privilege.
I am a pet person. My dog actually lives in Georgia now. But I work with animal trainers and pets quite often. I also volunteer at different places like animal shelters. It's good to be around pets. They kind of put things into perspective. They're easygoing, loyal, and they seem to get it, even when humans don't.
Music is really powerful. It's a universal language that connects everyone.
Honestly, what keeps me grounded is my faith and my value system.
