Mogul’ will be a real inspiration to a lot of individuals. My mom had a series of meetings with the director to share certain things.
My mother has dementia, and certain people have a short fuse with my mother and the way she is, because shes on a loop, and she repeats certain things constantly all day.
Certain things are very important for me while saying ‘yes’ to a script. One is obviously the role and its importance to the film. When I say this, I don’t mean the length. And last but not the least – the director.
I’ll listen to certain things that I made back then, and I’m like, ‘I wish I could have done this, I would’ve done that’. When you start out making music, you just want to make something that people will like.
Even though we are reality stars, I feel it is important to keep certain things to ourselves.
A lot of times I go to a comedy show, I sit there and wait for the comedian to run out of ideas and look at me and make an Asian joke. Which is very different for blacks and Latinos. You can’t say certain things because everyone is cognizant of when things are and should be offensive. Asians don’t have that luxury.
I am a very honest, open person and I think there is a tendency in celebrity autobiographies to gloss over certain things which have happened.
Certain things happen in life that force you to take a pause and priorities are constantly changing. You’re meeting different people and things don’t always go as planned, but in the best way possible.
I believe in myself and I know I’m capable of doing certain things that nobody can really do, I would say.
Yes, I do come with certain reservations, and I’m not OK with certain things, but rather than focusing on what I don’t want to do, I focus on what I do want to do, and I bring that energy, and that happens.
Some people can be choosy because they’re ultratalented or lucky or whatever, but yeah, there are certain things that might not be the greatest thing on my resume. But I don’t sit back and go, ‘Gosh, I wish I didn’t do that.’ It’s all part of the growth of a career, whether you’re an entertainer or a librarian.
There are certain things that you can blast through a stereo. You can blast hip-hop. You can blast heavy metal. You can’t blast ‘All Things Considered.’
I started out in a professional choir at 13 years old. We traveled to different places, and I had a close relationship with the leaders of our choir. We were recording when I was 15, so it wasn’t like I had to wait until 25 to find out certain things.
I want to say something very clearly. I understand that I’m a self-confident person who might come off with the wrong attitude sometimes, but I don’t mean to. I just believe in certain things, and I know exactly what I want. I’ve always sacrificed things in order to become the best musician I could be.
I admire traits in people. I ‘respect’ certain things about them but I think that word gets thrown around too much.
When I rap, I get to express myself in a way where putting words together is like poetry, and sometimes it’s better to talk in certain expressions than sing, you know? So I love, I love to rhyme when I want to express certain things.
I don’t do rehearsal. Some directors prefer to do rehearsal – readings before the actual shooting – but I don’t like this process because I think there are certain things that are so spontaneous, and they cannot happen twice.
Faith is an act of rational choice, which determines us to act as if certain things were true, and in the confident expectation that they will prove to be true.
Sometimes we need to tell ourselves that we’re not going to do certain things, just in order to stay sane.
Quite frankly, I think political correctness is the worst form of censorship. You’re not allowed to speak your mind unless you’re black, or unless you’re a terrorist, or unless you’re an Arab or a minority people. Then you can say what you like. But if you are like a lot of us you are not supposed to say certain things.
I think what you learn, working on a film or TV set, is how to tune certain things out. You’ve got 60-100 people swirling around you, each of them with a very important job to do.
There are certain things I believe we need to keep in our emotional arsenal as we navigate through life. Hope is a big one. The more of that we can carry, the better.
When certain things reach a tipping point, and you know people’s lives are in danger, you have to decide that it’s time to speak up, and you have to say something loud and clear.
