I don't like people that tell me what they think I want to hear. Love is something that never goes out of style. It's something everybody experiences, and if they are not in love, people usually want to feel that. So if you hear the album, it's very romantic. You know what, I'm very attracted to someone who makes me laugh and is that charming.
Really, I could be charmed by anyone. I'm just a sucker for somebody that is charming. That's why I called it Dangerously In Love. It's basically all of the steps in a relationship from when you first meet a guy to realizing you're interested to dancing with him the first night to thinking that you're in love to realizing that you're now a little open to making love to breaking up to having to love yourself after the breakup. All of that. A celebration of love. The more successful I become, the more I need a man. I get nervous when I don't get nervous. If I'm nervous I know I'm going to have a good show. I don't use backing tapes when I am singing and dancing on stage. I can do cartwheels and sing. There's plenty of days when I'm like 'Oh God, why? But that's just life. It's every job, not just mine. Every moment is not perfect. But it's definitely more good times than bad. You can't even compare. And when I'm on stage it feels incredible. If he invited you out, he's got to pay. We don't want the guys to think we're male-bashing
Or that we're thinking that guys should pay all girls bills, because that's not where we're coming from. At the Billboard Awards my skirt was so tight they had to lift me on stage. Y'all are so cute and y'all talk so proper over here. I love England. I have a song that's called 'Me, Myself and I,' which is one of my favorites,
&nd it basically talks about a girl who the guy's not right for her and he's cheating and whatever. For me, it`s about the way I carry myself and the way I treat other people. My relationship and how I feel about God and what He does for me, is something deeply personal. It`s where I came from, my family, I was brought up in a religious household and that`s very important to me. But I understand the mentality of people. I know that people judge others based on certain things. I know how celebrities really are. I`ve done it too. You meet people - rock stars, rappers, whoever - who you have seen on television and you go into their homes and they are regular people, just like everyone else. The great thing about McDonald's is that they have a lot of different things on the menu.
I love their salads. There are certain things in there that are unrealistic. But it has worked for me. Diana Ross is a big inspiration to all of us.
We all grew up watching everything about her -- her mike placement, her grace, her style and her class. Who I am on stage is very, very different to who I am in real life. But I don`t see that having a sexy image when you are on stage means that you don`t love God. No one knows what I`m really like from that.

It's a celebration of curves and a celebration of women's bodies. - On her song 'Bootylicious' . It doesn't annoy me, no, because I respect J-Lo. I like her, I think she's great. And I know that I'm over a decade younger than her, it's so flattering that I'm so young and people are comparing me to someone who has accomplished so much. But I don't think I'm like anyone else and really, I'd rather not be compared to anyone else. - On comparisions to J-Lo . We all have our imperfections.
But I'm human and you know, it's important to concentrate on other qualities besides outer beauty. There's plenty of days when I'm like "Oh God, why?" But that's just life. It's every job, not just mine. Every moment is not perfect. But it's definitely more good times than bad. You can't even compare. And when I'm on stage it feels incredible. There are certain nights that you know you hit that crazy note and you know that spin spinned extra fast. And you look out and people are just into it and you've worked so hard and now it's paying off and you can see why you dedicated your life to this.
