RL: I have love for a lot of miscellaneous things. I like fashion, I like to make jewelry. I write, I write music — pretty much all over the place.
SI: I didn't realize you wrote music. What's your favorite genre? Who are your favorite musicians?
RL: I sing. My favorite genres are jazz and old-school R&B; I’m kind of a mix of John Legend, Stevie Wonder, and Erykah Badu.
