"i think my music in general just confuses people, because they expect me to look a certain way and sound a certain way. and i felt like im not going to do something just because i’m black and because that’s what the world tells me that im supposed to do. this is who i am. this is who i was when i was three. and this is who i’m going be when i’m 85 or 90 years old. that’s kinda how i feel about it." - valerie june, here singing "twined and twisted" from her new album
