Do you think being a woman and a musician is different from being a man and a musician? If so, how? Was there a moment that made a difference clear to you?

"A man doesnt havet to go thru all da red tape of doin dis dramatic change to self, appearance, content, etc to get into da game.

Where, on da otherhand, a woman typically has to meet da standards of what their male counterparts says it take to get in da game cause its da men dat dominate it.

Im da exception though...I refuse to bow to anything or anybody other then G.O.D."

Did anyone ever give you any valuable advice about making your way in the music industry? What advice would you give to a woman musician just starting out?

"Noone ever taught me sh#* is dis game. Andso, I dont depend on anyone to do anything for me. I jus go get it cause everything is possible.

You dont have to change who you are or fake it to make it. Keep it real to ya'self and get your own relationship wit God. You'll be surprised what a relationship with Him would help you to accomplish and acheive. There's nothin in dis world like da knowledge and wisdom of da Lord. He's nothing like we've been taught He was coming up in religion, which was created to control us, da people, and keep us in dis box of control.

Da industry is a beast and I refuse to be a victim. Knowledge is power, so learn all you can every chance you get about da various aspects of da industry. Talent is only a percentage of what you need to be successful in da business.

We all should be prospering in good health, loving each other in peace and harmony, andso everyone has a part to play and since music is da universal language, we as musicians, should take its power more serious."
