Khalid Best Quotes
I use my clothing choices as a way to express how I feel.
Once you’re comfortable with the way that you’re dressing, you express yourself a lot more, and you’re just able to have a lot more fun.
Falling in love in high school and falling out of love – it’s very digital. I’ve had breakups where they’ve called me to tell me we were done, and I’ve gotten a lot of text messages from an old girlfriend letting me know how she felt about me after we had ended everything.
When I started writing, I said, ‘I don’t know how to do this. I don’t know if it sounds good.’ Coming from being an underdog or being told that something wasn’t for you over and over repeatedly, it took a lot out of me. It took a lot of my self-confidence.
For me, love is endless, and love has no age limit.
I feel like we go through different stages of love. When you get a little bit older, love starts to feel different, but you see that love has always been there.
I’m an African-American man with an Afro who isn’t your typical athlete – who wasn’t as masculine as other guys.
My mom raised a self-aware kid. I wasn’t like the typical alpha male. I wasn’t afraid to sing, you know? I wasn’t afraid to be in musicals.
I got joked on. You had people saying I was stupid, that I was lame, that I was feminine, this and that. I was like, ‘OK, but I’m still gonna be successful, and you’re not.’
You’re not a real fan if you don’t know how to say my name.
I was very confused with where my life was heading, but I knew that whatever I did, music was going to be involved.
Kendrick Lamar deserves a Grammy. He’s one of the biggest, most influential rappers of my generation.
And even though I’m famous, I still go through things that young people go through.
I suffer from anxiety, moments of depression. I’m in my head so much, and I’m thinking so much, I’m playing a tug-of-war within my mind.
I wrote ‘Saved’ as a form of therapy to get over the fact that I had moved and lost so much of myself.
The first songs I made brought me to the Grammys. I was a five-times nominated teenager off voice memos and songs that were clearly recorded off different mics.
It’s crazy that people are looking to me as a symbol like, ‘Oh, he’s the voice of the youth. He’s this and this and that.’ I feel like there’s a lot of pressure that comes with it, when people look to you as the face of something.
I gotta spread all this love that I have for myself, I gotta spread it to everybody else, because my positivity is going to change at least one person’s day a day, and that’s all that matters to me.
It’s my job to accept my youth, to spread my story, to let people know who I am as an individual, because there’s so many people who are blinded and think less of me because of my skin color.
There’s been a time where I was like, I wanna be a folk singer; no, I wanna sing soul. I want to sing classical music. I want to sing R&B. I want to be on Broadway. I just wanna sing. Whatever comes out of my mouth, that’s what I want to do.
I’ve got to thank the city of El Paso for standing behind me.
I’ve met so many new fans and amazing people while traveling to new cities and locations throughout 2017 in support of my album ‘American Teen.’
I just love matching sets. Tops and bottoms that are the same color are awesome to me, because you can get them in so many different colors – neon colors.
