Some say your music and personality is complex, how do you respond to that?
I think that we’re all complex beings. I don’t think I’m the only one, it would be silly to say that.

Artistically I can be very, very complex. I have my very vulnerable moments and I have my very strong moments. I think in the vulnerability, you find strength and in strength you can find vulnerability. I think that’s why”Gangsta” has so many vulnerable, break down moments but then also very strong moments. My music can be very complex, but I think that’s just a reflection of the human spirit.

Let’s talk a bit about your upcoming album, My Garden. What can we expect?
The album will be released early next year and it’s a plethora of emotions and sounds. The album shows a different side of who I am—I’m inviting people into my garden, my mind and into my thoughts. It has happier songs and deeper, more inspiring songs.

You talk a little bit about your love life in the songs. Who are you dating now and what type of guys do you like?
I’m not dating anyone right now. I have zero time to date anyone. But if a dude comes correct and knows how to make me laugh, that’s all that really matters. You have to make me laugh and be able to laugh at yourself. I just like to chill and joke around, especially because my work can be so overwhelming. When I’m with a dude, I do not want the drama. I don’t need it. I’ve been through the drama; I’m good.

Who’s your dream celebrity boyfriend?
Bradley Cooper. He’s hot, sexy, funny and he seems very chill. And from what I hear, he lives with his mother, which I love. I think that is the cutest thing ever. My sister was telling me he moved to LA and had a crazy life and then he ended up moving back in with his mom. I love that. I think it’s cool and down to earth. But we’ll see. He could be a total asshole and end up having a little dick. So, you never know.
