On relationships I think in general I’ve always pretty much had a good handle on what’s going on in a relationship. I’ve always trusted my intuition and I’ve always known that my intuition is right. Now whether I decide to go with that or not is a different story. But I always knew, and I tell women this all the time, intuition will never lead you astray. Never. We have it for a reason. But we choose to try and turn it down or try and turn it off. And that’s something that I’ve always known but it wasn’t until I got a little older that I learned to just listen to that, because I think we all hear it. Women, we always know what’s going on. Whether we choose to act on that is a different story. Something that my Dad always told me a long time ago…. guy is always going to show you his cards. Whether you choose to look at those cards for what they are or whether you just choose to act like you don’t’ see them, a man will always show you his cards. So don’t act surprised later when something happens, because you saw it already in the beginning and you chose not to heed that. And that is really true. So how did that change me? I didn’t hang around and try and figure a guy out a million different ways, like maybe this or maybe he was sick or maybe he just whatever. It’s like, it is what it is. We’ve got to start wasting time and energy on a situation when there’s nothing to figure out. And we tend to do that all the time. We’re so good at that.

More snippets from her interview under the cut...

Nothing too juicy, but an interesting read nonetheless:

On Love & War It’s pretty much about the ups and downs in a relationship. Not so much the ups, but it’s more about the downs of the relationship or coming to the other side after going through trials and tribulations. It’s definitely a less idealized viewpoint of relationships — just the things that we go through to grow as individuals, being individuals and being in a relationship and what that means. It’s pretty personal. I mean [the album is about] things that I’ve gone through, my history of past relationships. There’s also stories from lots of my friends and their issues in their relationships. I wanted each song to have a facet of a relationship. It’s not like the entire album is one relationship. It could be, but it also could be different relationships. I wanted each song to tell a specific story. So it was really important to make sure I kept that in mind when I was writing, so I didn’t go off and become too varied and lose what the story was. On staying true to herself I always made a decision early on that I wouldn’t try to forget who I really am, that I wouldn’t try to just lose myself in everything. I’m not into secret marriages or big relationships for press and all those things. I’m into just doing me, being me and creating my music. And that’s it. People happen to take a picture of me walking around, that’s cool. None of those things bother me. As long as I don’t lose my sense of what’s real. Whatever that means, as long as I have my own sense of me then everything can just be put into perspective. On connecting with her fans I always reach out to me fans. When I first came out, I had my own website and I would do an update. A lot of people weren’t doing that. Some were, but not a whole lot. It was more like posting a paragraph about what’s going on. And now with Twitter and everything, it’s just like a constant influx of information from everyone, you know? I do have a Twitter account and I definitely do use it.

I think Amerie is beautiful,

I think Amerie is beautiful, but I feel she should focus her efforts on something else that will make her famous, like acting ... For one, she's not very talented, and also I doubt she's just doing it 'for the love' because all of her music sounds over-produced and over-done, and she doesn't write her own lyrics. So, I feel like she should try something else. I want to see her be famous, but music isn't what's going to carry her, obviously.

Love her new album and she

Love her new album and she looks hot!!!! too bad half the bad commenters can't say the same about themselves

If I were god I would send

If I were god I would send all the ignorant black people on here hating on their fellow sister to hell immediately, some people really need to get a life vs leaving stupid comments about a talented woman from their computer at their 10-15 dollar and hour jobs. Amerie is not thinking about you haters, you been hating for years and she is working on album #5 soon. If u have nothing good to say KILL YOURSELF!!!!

Her pictures are hot - SO

Her pictures are hot - SO WHAT! It doesn't take much to make a photo hot with makeup, photoshop, airbrush, etc. Grab ur 'neighborhood cutie around da way' girl, setup her up in with a photographer and her pics will be just as hot... Looks doesn't equal talent, which she has solidly proven. This is her third or fourth album and she has only had TWO hits? Good, she went to Georgetown, she shouldn't have any problem finding a new career. She gets an F for this latest album and her cat screeching...

IMO, she can sing. I respect

IMO, she can sing. I respect her game. She went to college first(Georgetown) then did the music thing. You can tell she's intelligent. I'm sure she probably knows that she's pretty, but not everyone wants to make it off their looks all the time. Not those who have a good head on their shoulders. She's actually had a hit on each album. The first one, "Why Don't We Fall In Love," and "One Thing," which I think was on her 2nd album; it was on the "Hitch" soundtrack. I like her voice. Her material hasn't always been the best but I think she's a good artist.

...she got with a better promo team, she can't sing worth a lick, just not much vocal talent to work with. Perhaps she is talented, but not as a singer. Maybe she should try modeling because her pics are always tight, I can't say the same for her music. Her pics are gorgeous!!

Amerie needs to get with

Amerie needs to get with better people someone like Clive Davis because the folks who promote her don't know what they're doing. I think she has a lot of talent.

The same people on here

The same people on here talking about Amerie cannot sing are the same ones who praise the chick who is plastered to the left and right on this site... and we all know that she sounds like someone is drowning a freakin' cat... just my opionion but let's keep it 100% Amerie has decided that she doesn't want to do a complete 180 or 360 (depends on how ya wanna look at it) to sell albums. No gimmicks, just singing. I can applaud her for that one.

one hit wonder??? ??? I still jam "why dont we fall in love" on the iPod.... this woman is a music icon in the making. She just didnt have her first break yet.

Wow. that is some real good

Wow. that is some real good insight there Miss Amerie. and u are looking fab i might add. why are u guys saying she should quit the music industry. have yall listened to her last album. it's actually pretty good. it didn't sell well but it was a good cd. she has a beautiful voice. she either needs to reprimand her people or find new ones. real talk.

that album FLOPPED and

that album FLOPPED and FLOPPED HARD...and she did get promo, maybe not as much as others, but i seen her like 50 damn times on that show on BET and i saw her commercials. she should try promoting herself, and not leave it all to the label, we know how def jam do maybe next time Amerie. cute pics
Miss GQ's picture

I understand that Amerie

I understand that Amerie wants to have a successful singing career. But let's be real - it ain't gonna happen. I've listened to her new album and I can't believe she released that mess. She should try modeling, that's her best hope.

S&J: I love this chick…she is so right “It is what it is,” if more females realized this, they would be happier.Her album is the shit, I love it…I wish she would get the exposure she deserves but really everybody check it out. Songs I suggest; Different People, Why R U, More than Love ft Fabolous and Higher. She's getting more than enough exposure - her pics are everywhere and she has performed that whack azz song far too many times...she needs to take singing lessons. Seriously. Just my opinion...who told this girl she can sing?!? I guess the same fool that told half the music industry they could. That pretty face is not gonna sell records. She needs to step her vocal game up. Until then, she will forever be a '1 Thing' wonder...
