Poor is the man whose pleasures depend on the permission of another.
Things were a lot simpler in Detroit. I didn't care about anything but boyfriends.
Because I was a dancer, I started going to auditions for musical theater, which forced me to sing.
When I left Michigan and I came to New York, that was my goal, to be a professional dancer. And I sort of fell into singing by accident in a way.
I went to the University of Michigan for one year, and fortunately they had a foreign-film cinema, and I discovered it, and I thought I died and went to heaven.
I think a lot of people have a problem with the fact that I've adopted an African child, a child who has a different color skin than I do.
I've always danced and exercised. I can't imagine not doing it. I'll be Martha Graham in my 90s doing contractions on the floor.
我一直在跳舞和锻炼. 我无法想象不这样做. 我将是90年代的玛莎·格雷厄姆（Martha Graham）在地板上收缩.
Growing up, I didn't feel cool; I didn't fit into any crowd.
