4. If you could sit down to drinks/dinner with one person living or dead who would it be and why?

- Dave Chapelle. I'm often asked this question often and my answer has evolved over time. But I think Dave's voice is so important right now. He's a friend of mine, but I'd love to have a drink with him now in particular, because this moment we're in is so critical for black people.

- In Prince's home in Hollywood during a photoshoot for his upcoming American Tour.

7. Best meal you’ve ever had?
