What can fans look forward to on your YouTube Channel?
A lot of traditional television based stuff. I’ll be bringing scripted stuff to my YouTube channel that I’m very excited about like show ideas and reality-based things.

Tell us about “I Don’t Belong To You” and what made you decide to write your own book?
“I Don’t Belong To You” uses my story as a backdrop but it’s not really just about me. It’s more so about putting yourself in my shoes [on] your journey of finding yourself. It’s also me showing you…you know, the habits that I created that helped me get to the place that I am now, where I’m able to feel confident standing on my own two feet.
Who are some of your creative inspirations?
So many. You know I love Aaliyah, I love Michael Jackson, R. Kelly, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey.
Dream musical collaboration?
Probably Michael Jackson.
What’s one thing your fans don’t know about you that they would be surprised to hear?
Unfortunately I’ve told them quite a bit, I’m not sure there’s much that they don’t know. I mean, I’m very sensitive. I don’t think that that’s something that I easily show people…that I give off. I think people could tell that I’m sensitive in a normal sense but I don’t think people really could understand how sensitive I am. I think that’s a part of my personality that people only really close to me will know, because the way everybody reacts sensitively is not the same. Everybody doesn’t cry.
