On the grammar of her single 'Work':
'You get what I’m saying, but it’s not all the way perfect. Because that’s how we speak in the Caribbean.'
On Beyonce & her dropping 'Formation':
'Here’s the deal. They just get so excited to feast on something that’s negative. Something that’s competitive. Something that’s, you know, a rivalry. And that’s just not what I wake up to. Because I can only do me. And nobody else is going to be able to do that.'
On dating & exercising:
'My schedule is so crazy right now. It’s definitely going to be a challenge when I do decide to pursue a relationship . . . but I have hope! Exercise is also hard to find time for. I don’t work out as much as I’d like to but my trainer Jamie is a beast and she makes me pay for it.'
On trying to take a break after her Unapologetic 2013 Tour:
'I wanted to have a year to just do whatever I want artistically, creatively. I lasted a week. (The paparazzi got a picture of her going into the studio), my fans were like, ‘Oh, yes! We’s droppin’ a single.’
