Looks like we don't have salary information. Sorry!
I'm blessed enough to been in the game for a while and still have my beautiful fans and still have the respect. That's something that gets me going. I'm also fortunate enough to take vacation and take a little hiatus.
I've always expressed my love for fashion through my music.
When you are a real artist who is serious about your craft, you love good music. Period.
Honestly, I can't survive without my MAC gloss, pigment - sometimes MAC powder. But definitely my gloss and pigment and liner. I don't do mascara all the time. I do when I wear no lashes. I use the mascara, but when I wear lashes, I don't always do mascara, because it makes it real heavy sometimes.
I love being the underdog sometimes.
The one thing I do like is lotion and moisture on my hands and face. I love to have my face moisturized. I like different ones. I like Natura Bisse.
Sometimes I'll be driving and a lyric will come into my head, and I will have to pull over and record it on my phone.
From being in the industry as a teenager, I'm so used to getting makeup done all day.
Like, I get along with everybody. I respect everybody, but at the same time, I carry myself with an aura that demands respect, too.
'Dancing With The Stars' is a little family. The cast, we're all together - we're a really friendly competition.
Sometimes, I don't even want to put on makeup. And sometimes, I feel so unattractive and blah.
I want all my friends, family and fans to know that I am in good spirits and I will be fine.
My fan mail is what keeps me going.
I love doing things people don't expect.
My love for the female hip hop movement has always been genuine.
I love reinventing my music and myself as well, and that's something my fans love about me.
It was a very emotional dinner... Everyone shared personal stories about her and gave her words of encouragement and inspiration. Everyone tried to remain positive.
I like to live righteous. And I just want everyone to know I'm not trying to get out of anything.
A lot of people let me down... A lot of people I thought were my friends turned on me.
I always go to church on Sundays and Bible study on Tuesdays.
All my life, men have told me I wasn't pretty enough - even the men I was dating. And I'd be like, 'Well, why are you with me, then?' It's always been men putting me down just like my dad. To this day when someone says I'm cute, I can't see it. I don't see it no matter what anybody says.
Lil' Kim is my stage name and a character I use when I'm out working my livelihood.
The artist I wanna be like is Michael Jackson. I'll get the house with the roller coaster and the rides and a disco, and I'll invite all my friends and just stay at home.
Money talks. This is the thing, at the end of the day, I do what I have to do, and I'mma keep doing what I have to do.
I ain't acting when I'm on stage. That's why all the little love bugs who'll come and see me at Lovebox love me. They know it's the real me.
I am definitely the queen. I definitely see myself as the queen.
I have low self-esteem and I always have. Guys always cheated on me with women who were European-looking. You know, the long-hair type. Really beautiful women that left me thinking, 'How I can I compete with that?' Being a regular black girl wasn't good enough.
I love spending time with my dog, my niece and my family. I'm very family-oriented.
I love to reinvent myself, and that's because I am a very free person. I do what I feel, and I love who I am.
I am blessed to have so many great things in my life - family, friends and God. All will be in my thoughts daily.
I'm a girly girl. I'm strong, but I'm very timid. Very dainty.
I haven't had sex in eight months. To be honest, I now prefer to go bowling.
I like bowling. I suck at it, but I like it. You know what's so funny? I have days when I'm absolutely great at doing it, and then I have days when I just don't understand it.
The streets made me. They stay at me. There's nothing that's gonna take away from my legacy. I'm sorry. It is what it is. I'm dying this way. With the crown on my head, nobody can take nothing away from me. It is what it is. I am who I am. Bottom line.
I respect everybody, but at the same time, I carry myself with an aura that demands respect, too.
I know I always say my occupation is not dancing, but dancing is in my heart, dancing makes me feel good.
I think people have a misconception of me, period. My life has been a whirlwind sometimes, but it's different to what people think. I definitely feel like there's a misconception about me and who I am.
Today begins a new saga in my life which I expect to strengthen me and allow me time for reflection... I plan to write music while in prison, read and pray regularly and will come out a stronger, more confident woman.
One thing about me is that I'm very much like the Black Madonna. I love to reinvent myself and that's because I am a very free person.
I really want people to understand that nobody is perfect and that things happen in life beyond our control.
But this is Miami, you can't come to Miami and not show any skin. You gotta show something. If you're all covered up in this heat, you're gonna make me pass out out just to look at you. It's sweaty in Miami-but the diamonds will keep me cool.
I believe strongly in my work and need time, because I put 100 percent in everything I write and everything I do. My modeling, my music, my acting, everything that I'm getting ready to get into, I put 100 percent into. I want whoever is going to back me with it to put 100 percent into it.
Only me and him will ever know what that relationship was really like. (On her relationship with Biggie Smalls)
