Think you’d date another rapper?
I don’t think I would date another rapper. I don’t foresee it.

What makes you say that?
I mean, I don’t know, I guess it’s like, you never want anybody to judge you, so if the right rapper came along… but even Kanye was kind of a different type of guy. He wasn’t your typical rapper. He was just different. And there aren’t a lot of guys in that field that are different in the way that he was. The reason why I even gave Kanye my number was because he didn’t seem threatening.

I’m with you on that. Are the two of you cool now?
Um, we don’t have beef.

What are the three most important lessons you’ve learned from being in this crazy industry?
I’ve learned that no matter what, you always have to be yourself and hold your head up high and have respect for yourself. I’ve learned that the industry can get a bad rep, but if you’re able to be around certain people and experience new things, just take it as something that’s good and learn from it and be inspired by it because there is definitely inspiration. And about being in a high profile relationship… just keep your business to yourself.
