And I have to say 'she' because Chastity was a 'she' then and I have to make the distinction with Chaz as he is now. But it's starting to be nice because we're creating memories now and we've actually had the most fun together lately than we've had in forever. Hide

Actually, I quite respect her. Actually, I think Madge might be one of the most amazing artists I've known. I don't like everything she does, for sure, but she is always riding the crest of the wave. She always saw trends WAY before anyone else, and had great videos. Hide

I didn't have a hard time in the beginning when Chaz came to see me and told me, 'This is what I want to do.' I said, 'Well, if you're miserable, then you've got to do it.' But then as it was starting to happen, you know, it's a strange change for a mother to go through. Hide

I've always said, "If you're nice, they walk over you, and if you stand up for yourself, they call you a bitch.". Hide

But since I was only 16 maybe I can get out of it with that. I don't know if I was a bimbo then, but I had pretty low self-esteem. Hide

I couldn't get a job. People said I was a huge joke. I've been a joke so many times. I've been on my way out since I started, but I'm strong-willed. My mother is so much tougher than I am and my grandmother is so much tougher than my mother. Hide

I want to put on a show. I want to dazzle people. For me, everything goes through my eyes first. Even when I did 'The Star Spangled Banner' I was wondering : What should I wear? Hide

Chastity has a nice father, I think Sonny is a decent father. Elijah's father is absolutely useless. He's not worthwhile at all. He hasn't called Elijah in two years. Hide

Singing is like going to a party at someone else's house. Acting is like having the party at your own house. When you go to someone else's house for a party, it's not your responsibility at all, but when you have the party at your own house, there's a lot of responsibility. Everyone has to have a good time. So for me, acting is deeper. Hide
