#Quote
1 Rap lyric: 'But do I ever come up in discussion/ Over double-pump lattes and low-fat muffins?'
2 [observation, 2014] To be recognized in any capacity for the music that we make is great, but I don't think Grammys make or break an artist. I don't think anybody should live or die by the Grammys.. If I go home with no Grammys, I still feel great about what we did.
3 Part of me is being in touch with emotion. That's all I write about. If I didn't write about my emotions, I don't know what else I would write about. Let that be the worst thing in my life please, not something like drug charges and God knows what else. I don't get myself into trouble, so if the negative feedback that I do get is the worst thing that's going to happen to me, then so be it.
4 Real men stay faithful. They don't have time to look for other women because they're too busy looking for new ways to love their own.
5 [on Rihanna] I don't even know if I wrote a rap song in that whole nine months, because I wasn't a rapper anymore. I didn't believe in myself. I was someone else's property. I was a pawn. You know what she was doing to me? She was doing exactly what I've done to so many women throughout my life, which is show them quality time, then disappear. I was like, 'wow, this feels terrible.'
