on her mother

“My mom owns a com­pany that de­signs and man­u­fac­tures marine com­mu­ni­ca­tion equip­ment. Talk about a woman in power! I’ve learned about the dou­ble stan­dards women face from watch­ing her. She’s my big­gest sup­porter, but if I was like, ‘I’m done,’ she’d say, ‘Okay, let’s teach you how to be an en­gi­neer.’”

on nicki mi­naj

“Lit­er­ally, the things I would do for Nicki Mi­naj! I adore her as an artist but even more so as a per­son. She’s very real. I could tell her about any­thing and she’d be ready to lis­ten.”

on madonna

“I have the ut­most re­spect for that woman. I love her with ev­ery ounce of my be­ing, and not just be­cause of her abil­ity to out­last the bla­tant bul­ly­ing and bull­shit that she’s had to put up with or be­cause I’m ob­sessed with her en­tire discog­ra­phy. I’m so in­spired by her brav­ery and her strength. I can look at her and not be scared to be strong.”
