On Being Less Guarded
“I want my fans to get to learn more about me. I’ve been very blessed
with my success, but my music hasn’t given a clear voice to who I
am.[…]I thought it was better to be
private, but self-reflection helped me to say, ‘You need to live more.
If you worry so much about things, your head is going to explode. Just
live. Something has to give.’ I was holding back so much that I wasn’t
letting myself explore and live.”
On Her Romance With Future
“He’s very understanding and he’s my best friend. It’s important to have
a feeling that you can talk about anything and know a person’s going to
be there and support you. When we’re together, it’s not about who we
are. I feel very normal, very safe and loved. Being able to speak about
it is a whole different thing for me. I’m not thinking or caring too
much about what anybody has to say anymore. Once you start over-thinking
and worrying, you start getting close to insanity. I want my sanity and
a life and happiness.”
On Not Putting Out Bitter Love Songs About Her Exes
“It’ll come to light. Whatever energy a person gives you, they’ll have
to deal with that. I’m not necessarily going to be so direct in a song.”

So gorg! CiCi if giving us everything in this shoot.

Definitely one of my favorite spreads of the season. 

What do you think? Hot or Not?
