"My God is a God who wants me to have things. He wants me to bling. He wants me to be the hottest thing on the block. I don`t know what kind of God the rest of y`all are serving, but the God I serve says, `Mary, you need to be the hottest thing this year, and I`m gonna make sure you`re doing that."

He's someone we know we could talk to and call on if we have a question about something we can't answer because, quite frankly, 50 is very intelligent and we really appreciate his expertise, and we really appreciate his opinions and the advice he's given us."

“No one had ever heard of anyone that sounded like Luther"

The scar on my face, the lips that God gave me, the big giant feet, the long legs, whatever it is that I'm deformed with I got to love it, so everybody else can love it
