Adele on Rihanna
“I actually can’t remember the first time I met Rihanna; I was probably numb from the shock of it. She makes her own rules and bends ours”
Taraji P. Henson on Cardi B
“The first time I went on her Instagram page, she was so raw, coming at you, like, whoa! She used works like Shmoney and shmoves and she talked openly about being a former stripper. Cardi B’s here to stay, baby, and I’m happy to be a witness.”
Cyndi Lauper on Kesha
“Thanks to Kesha and other women who have stood up for themselves to demand justice and fairness, we are starting to turn a new page. It took far too long for us to come to this cultural moment, and we’re got a really long way to go, but thanks to people like Kesha, we’re finally starting to make progress.”
