Also, that was dealing with [domestic violence] issues that are very, very present. I meet people all the time who are going through it. And I experienced it in that way [onset ]where I would come home and be physically hurt at times. And Keith was like a soothing balm, because I came home to a man who wasn’t like that.

But that’s the nature of things when you’re really trying to be authentic.” – Nicole on how long it takes to come down from performances.
