When he had saw.. that was the first thing I had ever done.. the first come up dvd that I had ever done. He just liked it.. I don’t know why.. to be honest.. til this day he’s never really told me what it was about me .. but he said in a record one time I did with him.. Sunshine .. and he was like something about me being unique like a boutique.. so I guess I was unique to him but I don’t know in what way..”
