“With Queen Latifah, I kept annoying them all, asking for their autographs, to take some pictures... I was really a fan, but at the same time I’m working with them. So it was interesting having to switch hats because I couldn’t hold my composure, but I had to because I had to be able to [work]. But working with people like that early on in my career taught me how to be both.

“I don’t keep it cool. Like last night we were eating somewhere and we saw Beanie Sigel and I was like ‘Oh my God! That’s Beanie Sigel.’ I was so embarrassed because of my manager and boyfriend, but I was really excited to see him because I’ve never met him. I just saw him on TV, so that was a moment.”
