Here’s a small excerpt of what she told Ebony:

“I haven’t always been vocal about my feelings, especially in a relationship,” she tells Ebony. “Now, I make sure that I’m very vocal about my feelings, everybody knows how I feel. Sometimes it’s over the top and most of the time it’s ‘Team Too-Much.’ But I have to do a lot. (I was) a shy person who had self-esteem issues trying to figure it out — now, I’ve gotten over my hangovers. You say, I’m comfortable and confident; it took a long time to get there. Maybe like a year or so before ‘Braxton Family Values,’ I wasn't that person. I was faking it till I make it, pretty much.”
