Keyshia: I want to be an example for young people, especially growing up in the 'hood, because it's already hard enough to not be focused, not to be trying, to be doing something. It's really possible.
Keyshia (talking about her single "I Changed My Mind"): That song was actually about being focused and dedicated to what you want and what you're trying to be. It's about the things you're trying to accomplish in life and dealing with somebody, a significant other, who comes in between that, especially with their ways. I want to be an example for young girls in following your goals and dreams and making it happen and checking him out later if you have to.
Keyshia: There's a lot of trials and tribulations you have to go through to get what you want, especially if you feel like it belongs to you.
Keyshia (talking about her single "I Should've Cheated"): That song has a lot of emotion, because I feel every girl and every guy can relate to that. If somebody is doing you wrong or saying that you're doing something and you're being the best that you can be in the relationship, then you get home and they're like "Where you been?" "Well, where I could have been is ..." Don't start! It could get real ugly.
Keyshia: Being young, you have to be really dedicated to doing it for yourself. There's a lot of trials and tribulations you have to go through to get what you want, especially if you feel like it belongs to you.
Keyshia: It's just different things that we see in the 'hood that we never see in Hollywood. I liked the contents of the song, because I felt like no girls talked about it.
Keyshia (talking about her single "Love"): After I wrote the song, I went to the studio about 4 in the morning, and by 5 or 6 I was done with the song and that's what you hear.
