She recently sat down for an interview with New York’s Hot 97 to discuss all of her new projects as well as her relationship with rapper Nelly.

Here is what she had to say:

What type of space she’s in, with ex-boyfriend Nelly:

Nelly and I are in the space where I’m kinda like focusing on my career. He’s focusing on what he’s doing. There’s a lot things that happened this year. A lot of things went public more than other things have gone public, you know what I’m saying? And, um I kinda just have to do me. We’re in that space right now. There were things that were said and there were things that were done that probably shouldn’t of been said or done. You know, when people are around each other for a long time…there are feelings and there are things there…people get hurt. Men handle hurt differently than women handle hurt.

If her record, ‘Scarred’ is about her relationship with Nelly:

It’s a very deep record. Um, he put a couple scars on me..not physically, we don’t want to put that out there. We’ve definitely scarred each other in a sense to say. But getting back to the record…it’s a deep record and it’s something that I feel like I’m revealing very much–more than I have on previous records. You know I’m really, really excited.
