Maranda Pleasant: What makes you come alive?

Meshell Ndegeocello: Today? Lightnin’ Hopkins, espresso, my son’s artwork.

MP: What makes you feel vulnerable?

MN: Everything else.

MP: If you could say something to everyone on the planet, what would it be?

MN: Talk less.

MP: How do you handle emotional pain?

MN: Badly.

MP: How do you keep your center in the middle of chaos? Do you have a daily routine?

MN: I practice, I walk for many, many blocks, I wear a coat a little too light for the temperature, I stay home.

MP: What’s been one of your biggest lessons so far in your life?

MN: Your yes means nothing if you can’t say no.

MP: What truth do you know for sure?

MN: That no one knows anything for sure.
