I gravitate toward people with a big, sane, sound mind and big heart with a soft spot for elders, children, and animals.
I'm O.K. having a comfortable life. I don't have to live in a mansion and drive Aston Martins or Ferraris.
I was raised on pork... steak, chicken, everything... And everyone in my family pretty much of the older generation has diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, cancer.
There was a time in my life when I wasn't popular and accepted by kids in school. I was made fun of with braces and kinky hair and being from a multicultural family, et cetera.
You have to take a leap of faith before exposing yourself completely in terms of feelings and desires - especially if you're a woman.
'Damage' is about taking risks, stepping into new territory regardless of the outcome.
I can't always get to the gym, but I make a gym wherever I am: on the floor or on a yoga mat with bodyweight-bearing exercises like sit-ups and crunches, push-ups, lunges, squats.
I didn't really get sidetracked into being a singer. It was just something I started to do for fun in school, like singing the national anthem.

No matter the genre, music is a universal language and vibration that people can feel all over.
What always draws me back to the Caribbean vibes are the upbeat vibrations of welcoming melodies and positive energy exchange through the rhythms that make you feel like dancing with someone.
I'm always connecting with what society would label the outcasts and the weirdos and the lost souls.
I was very protected by my family. But at the same time, I was free to explore womanhood. I was taught that it's okay to be sexy and smart and beautiful.
