She reveals her feelings towards her estranged biological father, planning for her breast implants for over a decade and also talks about what happened with her failed engagement to football player, Roy Williams.
Here are some excerpts from the interview:
On her father: “I haven’t seen my dad for almost 20 years. It’s nothing I want a pity party for. He left me and my mum, and I was angry. I wanted to be a daddy’s girl so bad. God damn The Cosby Show because that made me think ‘Why aren’t my family like that?’ But this is not a perfect world”.
On her breast implants: “I said in an interview a long time ago that I’d get it done because I just had little nuggets for boobs and it was bothering me. The decision was 10 years in the making so I’m comfortable talking about it. It’s something I really wanted to do for myself – not for a man, not for work, for myself… and I love them”.
On her failed engagement to Roy Williams in 2005: “I was too young for marriage,’ she admitted “I remember my sister B [Beyonce] asked me one question: she said, ‘Well, you know what you want now, don’t you?’ and I was like ‘Yes’. It was so hard and embarrassing because everyone knew. I’d posed for the front cover of a magazine in my wedding dress and it was on sale! But sometimes you fall down and you learn from it”.
On British men & co-judge Gary Barlow: “Oh, have you seen how cute they wear their pants [trousers]? All neat and tight. British men are so charming! I love the accent and how they open doors for you - well at least the ones I've met so far do! With all due respect to [Gary's] wife, her husband has the nicest little hiney I have ever seen. Every time he gets up to get a drink of water I'm like, 'Oops!' [Does comedy butt-perv mime.] But it's his smile too. He's very genuine. I love a person who is straight to the point."
