“You know a lot of people like to say, any publicity is good publicity, to me it’s not because that takes away from people paying attention to your craft,” adding that it was “bad for business.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

When I was like a nothing, everybody was rooting [for me], but now that I’m finally here, people have a problem for it,” she said. “I worked so hard. People feel like I don’t deserve it.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“I get up every single time, honey. Even before this fame stuff, I always get up all the time. I show people that. I show it over and over again,” she said.
