The "Re-Vee-Lation" singer added, "The thing is if you copy what someone else is doing, you must always remember that you are not the only person copying and so eventually you have to fight for attention but if you come in with your own style and you are yourself, you will stand out".
“That is what my Natural Girl song is about, I want to be able to wake up and go out with my natural hair braided in corn-roll, I want to wake up and wear red hair if I feel like it. I mean be myself and do what I feel like doing,” she said.
