Today is Raven Symoné’s birthday and we would like to celebrate it taking a look at some of her tastes, hobbies and opinions. Let’s listen Raven Symoné’s words:
About loosing weight: I find it funny that people now come up to me and say, ‘Wow, you are absolutely gorgeous. I’m like, ‘I was beautiful before I lost weight. Egotistically speaking, I thought I was amazing.’
Breeding poodles(!?!?!?!): I used to breed poodles. I liked them because they were fluffy and so cute – and honestly, they make a lot of money when you sell them!
About this society (we agree with you, Raven): I think our society is all about judgment, which is so rude and disrespectful.
About her skin (and yours): I believe you should be comfortable in your skin no matter what you go through – emotionally or whatever – as long as you’re healthy.
How is she behind closed doors: Behind closed doors, I’m a crafty person.
And her obsession is…: I am obsessed with my hairstyles.
Her addiction: I’m definitely addicted to purses.
About industry: I’m not perfect. This is how I was raised. If I wasn’t in the industry, I’d be the same person.
About criticism: It’s difficult to not be able to just be yourself without criticism in any position, whether you’re in high school, college, or this industry.
About young people: It’s important for young people to know that they are made the way they are made and they’re beautiful and that’s how they’re supposed to be.
About her behavior in public: I have a responsibility to not look crazy in public. I don’t want to be the person where later in life when I have kids, to say, ‘Don’t do this’ and my kids go, ‘But Mom, you did it.’
About singing: Singing is just another outlet to express what I feel and to show everyone who I really am. I really don’t talk about my personal life that much in interviews because that’s my life, but with music, the way I write explains who I am.
