BD: What kind of music do you have on your iPod? Anything we would be surprised by?

LR: I had a Pussycat Dolls song on my iPod, but nothing too surprising. I love Prince. I have Prince on there, I have Neyo, I have Beyoncé, Alicia Keys, Dave Hollister, Anthony Hamilton, the Fugees, Fergie, the Black Eyed Peas, just a whole list of really well-known probably R&B and pop artists. Jasmine Sullivan, I have her on there, but nothing too surprising.

BD: Do you have any advice for up-and-coming artists who hope to have some of the success you've had?

LR: Never get comfortable, never settle, just keep going. Get to as big of a point as you can before your time's up, because we all got to go one day, so you might as well make the best of your life while your here. So I am not going to stop. I am going to keep going to the next level, next level, next level until my time is up.
