On having a family of her own and becoming a mother:
The time is not yet ripe, but when I decide to get married and become a mother, I would like to take a hiatus and dedicate myself completely to my child.

I don’t want to work my whole life without ever experiencing the joys of a family. Family has always been very important to me, and that is why I want to wait until the right moment before starting my own. Right now I am too busy, but at a certain point the situation will change.

On how seeing her mother get abused by her father shaped her own life:
That experience had a profound influence on my way of being a woman – never let a man cross the line or control me, especially in my career.

On being compared to Jay Z for her ability to be successful in both music and business simultaneously:
It’s no coincidence that we have the same Zodiac sign – Sagittarius [laughs].

On having a panic attack while returning from Paris following her performance with Beyonce:
I was flying in a private jet, tired from the performance and the jetlag, but instead of sleeping, I worried about all of the deadlines waiting for me in Los Angeles. I got really scared – I had a sort of panic attack.

On building her own empire:
I want to build my empire.  In my field, I have always seen men do it – from Diddy to Dr. Dre to Jay-Z. Now it’s a woman’s turn.

On seeing Beyonce interact with Blue Ivy:
Seeing Beyoncé with her daughter and husband was so tender, and it showed me that it is possible to be an animal on stage and a caring mother at the same time.
