Kandi Talks About Motivation, Sex, And More In Rolling Out Mag

Kandi, of Xscape and Real Housewives of Atlanta, is covering the latest issue of Rolling Out Magazine. In the issue she talks about what motivates her and being able to freely express herself sexually.

On What Motivates Her

“How can I go from being in the music industry or being on television, or whatever I’m doing, where do I go from that? To me, I’m constantly trying to think of things so I can maintain my lifestyle, and to take care of my family in the way they are accustomed to being taken care of. What keeps me motivated is providing the best life possible for my daughter, my mother and myself. That puts me in that grind mode; I want to keep my security.”

On Expressing Herself Sexually

“Some people want us to be so hush-hush when it comes to sex, and we all have sex, so what’s the big deal? Maybe, if we talked about it more we wouldn’t have so many issues … like when people feel that have to live in secret, because they have alternate lifestyles and they don’t want people to know. Or with children, I’ve been noticing a lot of kids are having sex in middle school and they’re not able to have that conversation with their parents, or talk about the issue of teen pregnancy. Maybe if they were having this discussion at home with their parents, these things won’t be going on,” 

On Keeping Her Success Factor

“It’s very important to take risks, because I hear so many people say, ‘I would love to do this,’ or, ‘I have dreams of doing that …’ And they never take the step to do it. Fear has no business being in your head if you want to take things in your life and your career to another level of success.”

“There’s only one queen bee; there are thousands of worker bees. They have a team, they go out and gather the honey, and they do what they are told what to do all the time.” 

“I don’t want to be a worker bee. People work that nine-to-five job that they don’t really like or they don’t want to do. But they’re used to getting that check every two weeks and they don’t know what they would do if that check didn’t come.”

“I don’t know if I’ll get a check next week, or next month, but if I go real hard within so many months, I should see something. Sometimes you have to step out on faith and just go for it, [otherwise] you’ll be stuck in the worker bee syndrome forever.”
