Despite her long list of enemies there is one person she feels nothing but love for because she finds him inspiring. She confessed: “Jay-Z. That's the only person I have my eye set on. The race thing always comes up, but I want to get there being very black and proud and boisterous about it. You get what I mean? A lot of times when you're a black woman and you're proud, that's why people don't like you. In American society, the game is to be a nonthreatening black person. That's why you have Pharrell or Kendrick Lamar saying, ‘;How can we expect people to respect us if we don't respect ourselves?'

“He's playing that nonthreatening black man s**t, and that gets all the white soccer moms going, ‘;We love him.' Even Kanye West plays a little bit of that game - ‘;Please accept me, white world.' Jay-Z hasn't played any of those games, and that's what I like.”
