On her album interludes…

“Dude, I’m in love with my interludes. This one called ‘James,’ joint is on constant repeat. The album is] soulful and aggressive, whether it’s lyrically, musically, or just the tone of my voice.”

On her single FourFiveSeconds featuring Kanye West and Paul McCartney…

“The thing that made me fall in love with [‘FourFiveSeconds’] is the juxtaposition of the music and the lyrics. When you read the lyrics it’s a completely different song than what you are hearing. The music is easygoing, but the lyrical content is very loud and in your face. In performing this, the key was to make sure the aggression wasn’t lost.”

On what’s she’s been doing in the past two years…

“I didn’t actually take time off. The past two years are the hardest I’ve ever worked. I’ve been working on two albums, an animated film, shooting for multiple magazines, designing for Puma and Stance [socks], a new line of fragrances, a summer tour, I launched my first annual Diamond Ball at the end of last year, and I’ve also been developing several projects to be revealed in the near future.”
