"That’s my state of mind. I don’t believe in celebrity worship. I don’t believe in anyone being above anyone else and that’s why a lot of my listeners are just people who will come up to me and have a casual conversation. They’re not screaming, going crazy. I don’t travel with a bodyguard. I’m a regular person just like we all are. I think that’s why it stays low key: because I don’t give in to the hype of anything, not even myself." @galore

"And so why should there be this thing about women not expressing their sexuality? There’s really no real reason why we can’t be as confident in our sexuality as a man. It’s just common sense. My advice is just to look in the mirror and realize that, you know, you’re equal to a man and anything a man can do, we’re more than capable of doing. And the things men are not ashamed to do, we shouldn’t be ashamed either." @galore

Q:Do people ever say ignorant things in front of you about your heritage?

A:Oh yeah, all the time. I was at the I Heart Radio awards and some man who didn’t know me asked me, “How was China?” Literally, the first words he said to me were, “How was China?”
And I didn’t really get it until I realized, oh, you think I’m Chinese. And I was like, “Oh, I’ve never been, I’m not Chinese.” And then he was kinda like, “Oh no no no, I know,” and like, tried to make up this excuse as to why he would say that.
And I’ve had people make racial comments about black people to me not knowing that I am part black, I’ve had people make comments about being Asian to me, not realizing that I’m Asian – or even people not realizing I’m also European. It’s something that I notice every day but I’ve gotten used to the fact that a lot of people still don’t understand the concept of being mixed, you know? So I’m patient with them. @galore
