On having certain ambitions:
If I didn’t have certain ambitions, I might have gotten married after high school and had kids and decided to get a job at a bank in Castle Hill, like my aunt did,” says the New York native. “It’s just that I had dreams and ideas that were different.

On the double standard for women:
It has taken time but I think we’re in a very powerful moment where women are going, ‘Wait a minute. We’re not afraid to say what we deserve. I don’t understand why you can’t be an actress and a singer and dancer as well. Like, that’s how this whole business started. Entertainment! And why can’t you be funny and also be a dramatic actress? OK, some people can’t do both. But if they can, let them!

On how people started to treat her when she did American Idol:
That show was live — everything was in the moment, not edited. So finally people got to see that I was actually a person, someone with a heart. I got to speak for myself for the first time, and that changed everything.

On people wondering if she has something to prove:
When I first started, it was always a matter of ‘Am I good? Am I good enough? Do I need to be better? What can I do to be better?’ Now I know I’m really good at this. So I just want to do it.

On her curves & fashion:
I didn’t realize what I was doing — I was just being myself. In my family, curves were glorified and part of the culture. It was just like, ‘Jennifer has a big butt, and it’s good. We were in the Bronx, like, break dancing. It’s what I still often wear to this day, the big hoops and, you know, gold jewelry. I always like to mix the glam with a bit of the hood.
