On learning more details surrounding her dad's transition along with the rest of the world in his Diane Sawyer interview: "I've always known. It was a secret we just couldn't talk about."

On her ability to influence others and have fun with it: "I started wigs, and now everyone is wearing wigs. Kim [Kardashian] just used my wig guy last night...I just do whatever I want to do, and people will follow."

On posting photos on social media: "When I post sexy photos, I always regret it. Like, Oh my God, everyone is seeing my body. I get really weird about it."

On why she returned to Disney: "A big reason why I wanted to come back to Disney is because I saw a lack of diversity on the channel. To see a black family, to see a young girl with these adorable Afro puffs…little things like that are so important."

On going to the Grammys after-party with her dad and New York Giant, Odell Beckham Jr.: "If a guy can handle my dad the first time, then he's worth giving my time to. If he can't, then I might as well not waste my time. Just because they're in the NFL doesn't mean they get a pass."

On not worrying about what other people think: "I wore a freaking mullet to the Grammys. I felt like I was killing it. And I was. That's all that should matter when you step out."
