    She pronounces McKay as Mack-I.
    She had horrible grades in her last year of high school.
    She dropped out of the Manhattan School of Music because the other students were too cliquish (sound like a cop out, since school is for studying and education?).
    She said: 'It took me two weeks to get sick of that place (Manhattan School of Music). School is all about conformity and acquiescence, and those are two things I'm really bad at. I can't even pretend.'
    Her song 'Wont U Please B Nice' earned an F at the Manhattan School of Music.
    She named two of her songs 'Black America' and 'Penis Envy,' but changed them when Sony rejected those titles.

    She is a vegetarian.
    She is a member of PETA.
    She uses her free time to write protest letters.
    In a short interview with Regis Philbin, she appeared confused and stammered.

    She admits to not being very good at chatting.
    She doesn't own a television.
    After graduating high school, she returned to New York City.
    She doesn't drink or smoke.
    She said: 'I can't tell you how much I abhor being cool.'
    She said she decided to sign with Columbia when 'I asked them if they'd bail out my mom if she got busted for marijuana possession. And they said yes.'
    She tends to perform the same song differently each time, honestly admitting she has trouble remembering the words.
    She blends rap and jazz. She has been called Ella Fitzgerald meets Eminem.
    She has been critically acclaimed in Rolling Stone, The Boston Globe and by many radio stations.
    Her father left her mother soon after she was born, and she hasn't seen him in years.
    Her mom is actress Robin Pappas who had bit roles in 'Superman II' and 'The Shining.'
    When she was ten a man grabbed her, held a razor to her and demanded money from her mom.
    After the mugging, she and her mom moved to Olympia Washington and then Pennsylvania.
    Her grandfather was found guilty of murder.
    She believes in God but not in religion.
