Celebrity Wisdom



People in show business are not generally known for the profoundness of the things they say. However, sometimes they say things that are insightful and thought-provoking.
Janet Jackson: “As you get older you eventually get to the point — or at least I did — where you say to yourself, ‘You know what? I don’t care what people say or think.’ And that’s a good thing because that’s you taking care of you.”
Melinda Doolittle (season 6 “American Idol” finalist): “Figure out the best thing about a situation and run with it.”
Ricky Minor (bandleader): “How do you get to the point of fearlessness? There is no perfect life. It’s about getting the most out of each day. When you have that attitude, you can leave the fear behind. You’re able to appreciate each breath and each heartbeat. In that state of mind, you can better give and receive the love that surrounds you.”
Mo’Nique: “You’re appreciative and you keep it movin’.”
Patti LaBelle: “Life doesn’t come with a rewind button. If you want to live genuinely, you have to free yourself from the opinions, beliefs, attitudes and judgments of others.”
Gabrielle Union: “Things run beautifully when you are prepared.”
Will Smith: “Throughout life people will make you mad, disrespect you and treat you badly. Let God deal with that because hate will consume you.”
Wynton Marsalis: “You can be number one yourself or number two somebody else.”
Alicia Keys: “There’s no need to fight what’s not true.”
Monica: “I’ve learned through experience that the best thing to be is yourself and not look at the things around you. I always offer what is coming directly from my heart.”
Natalie Cole: “There comes a point at which you just close your eyes and go for it.”
