Part 2: Monica Says: “I Genuinely Love People, I Don’t Think That’s Something You Can Buy or Teach” [SFPL TV]


In Part 2 of our interview with Monica, the singer talks about her kids being in the music business, maintaining a genuine persona, having a strong family influence growing up which shaped her attitude and more. The Code Red singer dropped a lot of jewels during her visit in NYC that we had to break it up for all to take in the good word from the beloved soul singer.


On her kids being apart of the music industry:

I would absolutely allow any of my children to be apart of the music business. I feel like everything i’ve gone through and everything i’ve learned has been with reason. And if it’s with reason then there’s a greater purpose. If the purpose is to help my children to understand this industry and to go about it right, then i’m all for it. And if they absolutely have no interest in this industry, i’m all for that too.

About staying humble and genuine in the industry:

As human beings, it’s a lot to take in when you become successful, and status changes, your monetary, everything is changing! Everything is just changing! And for me, I was fortunate that I didn’t have to go through those changes because I stayed so deeply rooted and where i’m from — it had a lot to do with my family as well.

I genuinely love people — I don’t think that’s something you can buy or teach. No matter how much training somebody might get, if you really don’t like people, and you really don’t like interacting, then this isn’t the business for you. Because people say that [it’s just about the music] but who are you selling the music to? So, you can’t separate the two.
