I'm paraphrasing but here's what she said:
“I stood up for him and Bey because I love both of them. That took me back. I was ready to lace my Timbs up and go back to old Inga because it was so disrespectful. The slander. It was disrespectful to me and all of the people who have done things for me. Do you understand I can hear now because of Jay-Z? [cries]”
“….People believed something that wasn’t even a story, it never was said. It’s not about immortalizing Jay, it’s about me having a reputation. I’m always coy about my personal life. There was no story, no audio, no interview….just someone maybe in Milwaukee somewhere just made up some story. When a story is saying YOU said someone is a controversial and someone gave you Herpes…when you’re insulting people’s families that’s a different level. Jay-Z is someone who I love and respect dearly and he’s always been nothing but great to me and my family period. Beyonce has been nothing but classy and sweet and loving and respectful to me. Those are my friends. They were disrespected. I was disrespected.”
“I come from a time of real journalism and now, this new day in age someone can just sit behind a computer and say whatever. Even the tone of the article was so ill-written. The words and grammar used, it’s not even me. My mom is an educator. And anyone who knows me knew immediately I don’t speak like that. And all these little hip hop sites just ran with it…”- See more at: MadameNoire.com.Her interview also included her emotional struggle with her skin color. She says that for awhile she was very insecure about her skin color. She discussed this insecurity with her friend Lauryn Hill. Who embraced her skin color early on in her career. She says as a dark woman she envied light skinned women for a long time. She was the darkest person in her family besides her father and it made her feel kind of left out. Like she wasn't good enough. But since then she's learned to embrace her natural beauty and live life as a strong confident dark skinned woman.
They of course mentioned her friendship with Nicki Minaj. She explained how she tells Nicki the times that she and Lil Kim were coming into the game were different. She says that Nicki doesn't need to be overly sexualized to get her message across. She's says that she's told Nicki that shes amazing and talented and she doesn't have to do all of that.
