Being beautiful is all in the attitude, it's about confidence.
Being beautiful is not so fun when you're in a business with all men.
Being beautiful isn't everything... Sometimes it's interesting to show how you feel on the inside on the outside, just through expressing yourself.
Being behind a camera, in front of the camera, is my own little deconstructionist niche.
Being behind the camera is where I feel comfortable. I've found something that I feel I, as 'Michael,' can be as confident in as 'Johnny' was on the stage. It's great being part of the creative process. You're right at the start of an idea, and you get to see it all the way through till the end.
Being behind the lens gives me a completely different perspective, and because of my blog, I get to do projects and attend shows lending me another angle.
Being best is a false goal, you have to measure success on your own terms.
Being betrayed is one of the most valuable lessons life can teach.
Being beyond politics, I am able to examine the role of the media without worrying about the indignant harrumphing that emanates from many journalists and commentators when you do so.
Being bi-racial and being from the country, I can talk to guys like Travis Frederick from Wisconsin and Doug Free from Wisconsin. And then I can go over and talk to Dez Bryant. I mean, think about the two different standpoints you need to have a real conversation with both, to really understand what they've been through.
Being big and famous doesn't get you more freedom, it gets you less.
Being bipolar is a huge exaggeration of your emotions. You can be pretty high and also terribly low, so I've been through it all.
Being biracial is so much a part of who I am that it's almost, 'Let it go already.' It's intrinsic to me. I think a lot of my fans relate to me because they felt different.
Being biracial is sort of like being in a secret society. Most people I know of that mix have a real ability to be in a room with anyone, black or white.
Being black is not a matter of pigmentation -- being black is a reflection of a mental attitude.
Being black or white isn't an accomplishment. What you do with your life -- or what you accomplish with your life -- dictates what you should be proud of.
Being black, I'm involved in the reparations movement. It's focused toward the African-American audience. We could begin to heal.
Being black, Latino, or Asian is not a genre. Romantic comedies, thrillers, action -- those are genres. I think there's a lot of people who want to have the conversation. I don't think people are afraid of it, I just think it's the time to have that conversation. Race is not a genre.
Being blessed with good health gives you the strength and loving what you do and -- is a privilege that keeps you going. So I'm just happy as a lark.
