On her feelings towards her “Unapologetic” album:
“When I was making this record I had no intention except the truth. It’s raw. That’s why the album is called Unapologetic. I held back before. I didn’t show a lot of myself. I was very guarded. I needed to be open and free and fearless. Basically say, ‘F–k it.’ What’s the worst that can happen? They’ll hate me? They’ve done that before.”
On her love for Instagram:
“It’s narcissistic, but whatever—everyone does it. I’m capturing personality… Everybody has their thing they like or don’t like to see. It’s all in your head. That’s why people take their own pictures, because it’s difficult for someone else to capture what you seek.
Get a good light. Get a good angle on what’s working for you that day. If it’s boobs, make sure you hit that. If it’s face, make sure it’s fierce.”
On “Diamonds” being her favorite released single in years:
“It was so inspiring and uplifting. It was giving me hope, that song. I was tired of angry love songs. Love doesn’t always have to be about breakups, and ‘We’re never going to be together again.’ It could be sweet. It could be, ‘Hell yeah! We’re diamonds!’
