When asked Do you think that you are prepared if a major label approaches you about a deal? Why? or why not? Her reply was,

"I feel prepared but it has got to be worth my while. I know what I have to offer regardless of major exposure. Never judge a book by its cover, real talk. I get a few offers a month but either there is always a catch or not what I need right now, because I’m already doing what they can offer on my own. I am not willing to give up my creativity, with that said millions or not, I love my Independent Status right now."
