I don’t view myself as a celebrity.  It’s all about the intention.  It’s not about me.  I thought that it was before.  But, now I know that it is about other people.  Who else could it be about?

Yess, B you are giving me life!  I think we can all agree that Ray J’s older sister has experienced enough heartache to leave one “brokenhearted.”  From the infamous car accident to a failed engagement with Ryan Press, Ms. Norwood has persevered through it all.  It is no surprise that Brandy is sitting on “top of the world” with the success of playing Roxie Hart in Chicago on Broadway.

Brandy is a veteran in the game and she is sharing her new mission in life in the latest issue of Uptown Magazine.  Check out the interview and photos below…..

On how playing Roxie Hart in Chicago changed her life:  “I stepped into something that I was born to do and I didn’t know it. I walked on the stage and my entire life reawakened … It’s about making people feel good about themselves and helping people dream. The vain stuff, like the pictures I took for this magazine and being in shows, I love! But it is all just the polish. I’m not a celebrity. A star guides. There is a difference.”

On what she will never do again in a relationship: “I will not mix business with pleasure anymore. I think that’s one of the things that does not work for me. I get confused about who a person is. That’s one of the things that I know that I will never ever do if I am ever to have time or make time for another relationship.”

On her upcoming new music: “It’s going to be five amazing songs that are very, very authentic. It has nothing to do with fitting in. This will be my own thing and my own way. Brandy is not in a box anymore. I really want to sing songs about the way I dream of feeling about love. It’s not about the love that I’ve experienced before, it’s about the love that I want to receive.”
