You’ve spoken on wanting to portray Aaliyah is there any one else you think you could pull of well? 
I’m kind of coming to the acceptance that maybe that might not happen. Right now, I’m focused on doing Whitney Houston’s life story.

Is that something that’s actually in the works? Or is that just your personal dream role?
That’s my personal dream role. I grew up with Ray J. I know a lot of people that know her. I think it’s something that can definitely be a realization should I sit down with her and start developing it. Even though I know her story’s definitely not done by any means, I think what she’s already been through and to come out on the other side is a story all in itself.

Why do you think you’d be perfect to knock that out?
Because I just feel her. I feel like people don’t know who she really is. And for some reason I feel close to her. I feel like I get the essence of who she is behind closed doors. And I think that I could portray her well in a way that she would be happy, God willing.

Does that mean you’re a better singer than we think?
I won’t be hitting those notes, I’ll tell you that. They’ll be using her real voice.

I’ve know you’ve been dating Thomas Jones for a minute. Is marriage headed your way soon?
I don’t know. For a while there I think it was right around the corner. I’d like to be [married] but I want to make sure, spiritually, I’m on the up and up in every way that I conduct myself. I definitely do want to get married. I definitely do want to have kids. I feel like I’m going to be Halle Berry’s age when I have my first one.

Why do you your feelings on when to get married started to change? 
I think because right around my birthday last year, I felt that I had been reborn in a way and I felt that God was really calling me to focus more on him and to be more in love with him, and to let him be my man. It was different for me because I hadn’t felt it that that way in any point of my life, so right now I’m really focused on what my purpose is.
