In-case you missed her interview for the cover photo here are the major highlights; 

on her breakup from boyfriend Safaree Samuels: “I had to learn to do something as simple as sleep alone. I struggled with ‘Do I express these feelings?’ And I decided there’s no reason for me to hide. I’m a vulnerable woman, and I’m proud of that.”

About her looking or acting sexy: “With a video like Anaconda, I’m a grown-ass fucking woman! I stand for girls wanting to be sexy and dance, but also having a strong sense of themselves. If you got a big ol’ butt? Shake it! Who cares? That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be graduating from college.”

On her teenage pregnancy: “I thought I was going to die. I was a teenager. It was the hardest thing I’d ever gone through.”

On her abortion: “It’d be contradictory if I said I wasn’t pro-choice. I wasn’t ready. I didn’t have anything to offer a child. Millions of people are gonna hear [the song she wrote of the experience]. And you gotta watch everything you say — people find an issue with every fucking thing.”
