Most of the criticism I got early in my career was from the Latin community. They used to take me out to lunch and tell me, "Can you go and take lessons to lessen your accent?". Or, "When you're on a talk show, can you not be so funny and loud?". People gave me so much crap about my voice, and I tried. I really did try to change, but it was the way I spoke. As I got older, the octaves dropped, thank God. Now I find it flattering if a sixteen-year-old comes up and starts imitating me.
Boxing is about pushing through your fears. It's more about fighting yourself. Floyd Mayweather could get punched - like clean shot down the middle to his face - and he wouldn't flinch. And I understand what he's doing.
Don Cornelius did not want to see how I really danced - I was doing hip-hop, and it was foreign to people out in California. They only knew about popping and locking, so they were not keen on hip-hop dancing. Don was like, "No, no, no. You're a girl." I was like, What? This is really weird. Then I had to dance in high heels, and I never danced in high heels before, and I had this little tiny short dress, and it's riding up my ass and I'm like, Oh my God. I couldn't move. As you can see from the tapes, I had absolutely no style whatsoever on that show. The first couple of times, I didn't know what the hell I was doing. I was just excited and nervous and scared and just elated. That was my style. A bunch of nerves just oozing out of my body.
