In an interview with Hiphopwired.com, Emily said, "He's very private . . . going in I didn't know that so much would be talked about him.

Emily also fired back at critics who accused her of playing the background to her celeb boyfriend. She said, "I haven't really played the background, I've been there for him throughout his career. I feel like I helped him . . . He's a trendsetter, he's one of the most stylish men in Hip-Hop and I feel like I was a part of that. And I enjoyed being that for him." She continued, "I took pride in that and I feel like if I had to play the background, to where he's at then I was fine with that. I didn't need to be in the spotlight because he's the star, not me.
