There are times in my life when I just want to be by myself.

I think it’s important to take a break, you know, from the public eye for a while, and give people a chance to miss you. I want longevity. I don’t want to get out there and run myself ragged and spread myself thin.

I stay true to myself and my style, and I am always pushing myself to be aware of that and be original.

I want people to remember me as a full on entertainer and a good person.

I know that people think I’m sexy and I am looked at as that. It is cool with me. It’s wonderful to have sexy appeal. If you embrace it, it can be a very beautiful thing.

I’m a total performer.

There are certain things I want to keep to me. I don’t discuss my private life.

I don’t think about my previous success. I’m happy that the work I’ve done has been very successful.

The Matrix is top secret. There isn’t much that can be said right now.
