Plot / Description

Voiceover / Dialog / Script / Spoken Word

I always battle with, how much do I reveal about myself. How do I stay current. How do I stay soulful. I felt like I had been so commercially successful. It wasn't enough. It's something really stressful about having to keep up with that. You can't express yourself. You can't grow. It is the battle of my life. So I set a goal, and my goal was independence. Everyone was like, what is she gonna do now? 
I just had a feeling that something was going on. Really, this is crazy. 
We don't have an approved rough cut. 
Focus until it's done. 
And we're going on live television in two days. 
They keep putting me in these tight clothing. Trying to hide it is very difficult. I don't know how I'm gonna get through this. 
People see celebrities, and they have money and fame, but I'm a human being. I cry, I get scared, I get nervous just like everyone else. 
Power is not given to you. You have to take it. You're playing a part in a much bigger show, and that's what life is.
