Brandy Norwood's quotes

  • I'll be a nun, raise my daughter, and make albums.
  • I just feel my sexuality is private. I'm very shy about being sexy. That part of me has been so closed to the public eye. I've sold millions of records with my clothes on. (Vibe, June 2004)
  • When you get a chance to step back, you notice all these great things you've done and all these great people that you've worked with.
  • Just staying true to yourself and staying true to your passion. Following your gut.
  • That's the beautiful part about acting - you get to play somebody other than yourself. So, I'm open to people who can't sing, people who can, people that sing a little bit, or people that sing a lot.
  • There's a lot of people out there who go through hard times, and they feel alone. They feel like nobody is there. But I'm in the same boat.
  • It's easy to just give everything up, but it takes a lot of strength and a lot of willpower to just make yourself stay on it and get up and do something different. And I had to do that.
  • When you fall in love, you wanna share it with people but you know there are some things that you need to keep to yourself, 'cause privacy makes things last longer, I feel.
  • I think creativity becomes really beautiful and magical when you allow it to do what it's needing you to do.
  • [on singer Adele] My daughter is in love with Adele. She listens to her every day. To see someone with that much passion and soul move a 9-year-old is amazing and it's magical.
  • I needed to explore my talent and versatility and see if I had another side to me, another sound.
  • Your children can be around you all day, but if you don't spend quality time with them and you don't pay attention to them and talk to them and listen to them, it doesn't matter that they're just around you.
  • I definitely felt like I needed a break, because when you do so much, you're not able to appreciate the things that you accomplish.
  • The idea of kids helping other kids is such a great way to introduce children to being involved in charitable causes and volunteer work, setting them on the path to doing good for others throughout their lives.
