When I create something, it's got to be special, and it can't just be to throw something out there because I feel like I'm Missy.
I ain't no icon. It's people like Patti LaBelle, somebody like that's an icon. I'm just Missy. I'm just crazy, that's all.
I am very scared of wasps; my cousin was stung in the eye once.
No, because I don't want to hear what's hot and feel I have to copy it. I'll just make up my own thing.
I can't complain. I think when you get to a certain point, you shouldn't complain because there's so many people who would kill to get to this point.
When you think of Missy, you can't say, 'Missy reminded me of someone else.' There was no Missy comparison before.
Before Missy, there was no comparison to what Missy was doing.
I want to make something commercial that people can pick up on.
The fun part of being an entertainer is that you call up Six Flags, and you say, 'I'm coming,' and you get to get on all the rides before everyone. I hate standing in line.
I've only ever had two vacations in my whole career, and I've been in the industry over twenty-something years!
I still don't want no broke dude! I'm open to offers, but he's got to be stable. I see a lot of friends who feel they have to be with a man, but they always pick the wrong one. Are there any right ones?
Maybe I should find myself one of those sexy British soccer stars. David Beckham is hot. But I've got a hell of a lot of competition.
Breaking news: there is only one Missy.
When you are creating to the magnitude that I try to create, your brain is like a computer, and you need to refresh.
I wasn't born a superstar.
My blood pressure was always up from just overworking.
I try not to be cruel to people. I know there's a karma, and I'm constantly thinking of my blessings. I live and die by being a Baptist. If I can't go to church on a Sunday, I'll get a tape by the Clark Sisters and slide it in for the day.
I talked about my father being abusive to my mother - people have never heard me talk about anything like that. That brings people a little bit more personal with Missy.
When it comes to size, most people don't want to see themselves looking bigger than what they are.
My father was very abusive, and it was hard for my mother at first to leave because we had depended on him for so long. Sometimes you kind of get adjusted to getting that beating.
I remember having mice in the house and my father taking some newspaper and beating me because mice was running on me while I was asleep.
I used to put all my doll babies on my bed with their hands up and I would do full shows for them. I'd even do the screaming and clapping. I was bugging to be a singer.
Me personally, I don't ask too much, but I do ask Him to continue to bless me successfully, financially, and just to keep me humble.
I always said if a man would have done half the records that I've done, we would know about it. But we don't know all the records I've done for other artists.
A lot of people don't do this. You can count on a couple of hands probably how many artists also produce and write, both for themselves and for others, and are able to be successful at both things.
I think Aaliyah has influenced artists like a Ciara.
I never stopped recording, but I went through a period where... The one thing that a lot of people don't know is that for as long as I've been as artist, I've been a writer and a producer.
I didn't want to just be an artist and let someone else have all that control over me. I knew I would have to produce.
All of the trials and tribulations from personal to the artist. It shows that I'm human. People see the glamorous stuff, but they don't see the background.
I don't want to get caught up and be an artist always on the go. Because once you do that, it's hard to get into the studio and do what I do.
