is commenting on being nominated for Best New Artist in the Grammy Awards
despite not really being a 'new artist'. Sisqo says, "The first year of
my career, Dru Hill won several awards, but we've never been nominated
for a Grammy, ever, so this is my first time. I'm a new solo artist, and
you can only get [Best New Artist] one time in your career, so I'm hoping
that I get that award, that'd be dope."

January 22, 2001 - Sisqo
is commenting on a Dru Hill reunion, which will be on tour, not a new album.
Sisqo tells Entertainment Weekly, "The year we spent apart made it so nobody
could talk to each other. If somebody's breath was stinking or somebody
farmed, you ain't even wanting to say, 'Damn, that was nasty!', you'd sooner
walk out of the room so he could wallow in it. Jazz threatened to kill
me. Nokio threatened to kill me, then I told them they can shove Dru Hill
up their a**." On the bright side though, Sisqo added, "The cool thing
is that we still get along. THey're going on tour with me this summer.
I know what I said sounds harsh, but in my neighborhood, that's how we
talk to each other." Dru Hill is expected to perform a small set at the
end of Sisqo's shows.
