Read the interview below:

On her next album: “I needed time to hear myself think again because where I left off withThe Pinkprint was a little bit emotionally unstable…Now, I want my happiness to be reflected in the new stuff.”

On Meek Mill: “When he and I were just friends, he would always say, ‘You remind me of my mother, and I like that because you’re like a dude. You’re tough like a guy and you talk like a dude.’ So I always got the sense that me being tough and bossy was a turn-on for him. And it’s important for me to keep my voice. Being in a relationship shouldn’t mean that you lose your voice. Being in a relationship should mean that you’ve met a secure-enough man to allow you, in a sense, to remain a queen.”

On their rumored engagement: “I’m not engaged yet. … He said that my third ring would be my engagement ring. But sometimes he calls me his fiancée, and I’m always trying to stop him, like, ‘Nope! I ain’t got that third ring yet!’ We’re just taking it one step at a time. And, you know, if that happens, if I get married, then I’ll have a child, and that’ll be fun, because I can’t wait to hold my baby.”

On her acting ambitions: “At that time [in high school], I was obsessed with Jada Pinkett [Smith] I wanted to be Jada and Halle [Berry] mixed. Now I’m going back to those desires.”

On her barbershop 3 Character Draya: “I wanted there to be a little bit of depth to Draya. I didn’t want her just to be, you know, an Instagram thot; I wanted her to have some sort of purpose and meaning.”

On refusing to twerk in barbershop 3: “Not every sexy woman is out here twerking all damn day.”
