Vanessa said that she has always wanted to be an entertainer, but she would rather skip the celebrity part.
“I became an actress and started singing and dancing because I truly loved it,” said Vanessa. “I did it because I genuinely enjoy doing it.”
“I did not want to be a celebrity. … I think fame is just something that comes along when you are in something that is such a success.”
“Fame is an interesting thing but my fans are very supportive and I thank them so much.”
“It is a dog-eat-dog world,” said the singer. “People want to know about people’s business; no one really has a sense of privacy because everyone is trying to get into your business.
“And people become jaded and infatuated with Hollywood. I think it happens to a lot of celebrities and it messes with their head.”
Vanessa said the extra attention is not for her. “I don’t like people staring at me all the time and I don’t want people following me around,” she said.
